(C++) How to play Sound (Code::Blocks)

Make sure you #include Windows.h, before you #include MMSystem.h.
In linker I added “winmm”.
PlaySound(TEXT(“yourMusicFile.wav”), NULL, SND_SYNC);

All music in this video is covered under the “Creative Commons 0” License.

I know people are still going to want to know what the song is, so here.

When you include Windows.h it is NOT necessary to include MMSystem.h also! The API Documentation clearly says :
Header: Mmsystem.h (include Windows.h). Your program should work fine if you simply dismiss including MMSystem.h
