Easiest way to integrate streaming

I'm trying to use Wwise in an iOS app, and am confused by the "Initialize the Different Modules of the Sound Engine" section.

It wants

#include <AkFilePackageLowLevelIOBlocking.h>                    // Sample low-level I/O implementation

but this is not in "$(WWISESDK)\include" (sic). It's actually in a "samples" folder.

Am I just supposed to copy the samples into my project? Is there a way to just use libraries (the way all the other modules get initialized)? I realize that Wwise is giving me tons of flexibility, but it's unlikely to matter in my app, and I just want the simplest way to get started.

I ended up copying “sample code” into my project, but this feels wrong. And it is certainly not in the basic steps for getting started.

Sometimes, clients prefer to write their own low-level IO code. For example, our UE4 integration uses a custom built IO hook that uses the Unreal IO system. However, some clients prefer a more out-of-the-box experience, which is why we provide samples for the IO hook. Feel free to use them in your game; they will just work for you.

Don't forget to copy the samples for all the platforms your game supports!
