ALLEGRO_AUDIO_STREAM *al_load_audio_stream(const char *filename,
   size_t buffer_count, unsigned int samples)
Introduced in 5.0.0

Loads an audio file from disk as it is needed.

Unlike regular streams, the one returned by this function need not be fed by the user; the library will automatically read more of the file as it is needed. The stream will contain buffer_count buffers with samples samples.

The audio stream will start in the playing state. It should be attached to a voice or mixer to generate any output. See ALLEGRO_AUDIO_STREAM for more details.

Returns the stream on success, NULL on failure.

Note: the allegro_audio library does not support any audio file formats by default. You must use the allegro_acodec addon, or register your own format handler.
