In this video we will learn, how to use the SoundPool class to play short, repetitive sound clips. Since API level 21 (Android Lollipop), the old SoundPool constructor is deprecated, so we will also learn, how to use the new SoundPool.Builder class. We will define a streamType for the old constructor and a usage and contentType for the new Builder. We will also set the number of maxStreams so we can play multiple sounds simultaneously and we will learn, how to pause and resume sound files by saving their streamID in a variable.
