Happy New Year!  :)

So, XMPlay can't play double-float 64-bits wavs?
Not supported by system/hardware/audio-card some would say
But BASS plays it fine (just checked through basstest/contest)
Shouldn't XMPlay do the same
Just sayin   ???

Here's an update that should add support for them (and 64-bit float AIFF):

Hi. Previously I was sitting on Win7 and XMPlay started fast.

After using XMPlay on Win10, noticed sometime XMP starts very slow. Tried XMP without any plugins and skins, and it starts very fast like it was on Win7 with all addons.
Maybe there is some option on Win10 or XMP that I should disable?
PS: Win Defender is disable.

Is XMPlay only slow to start the first time after you reboot the PC or is it every time? If it's every time when there are plugins and skins installed, then to narrow it down further, please try removing the plugins but keeping the skins, and vice versa.

Is that every time or only after a reboot? It may be slower to start after a reboot because none of the files/folders are in Windows' cache yet.

It seems to be working in a couple of skins I tried just now (the "Windows Classic 2" skins), so please provide the name of a skin that isn't working properly there. Also confirm what Windows version you're using.

OK, good to hear it was simply that. As well as the keyboard shortcut, it's also possible to toggle mini-mode by double-clicking in the XMPlay window (non-button area of it).

I have a 5 second buffer setup in output settings. I find it weird that after pausing and resuming playback XMPlay adds that 5 seconds. From my point of view it should resume playback in the very same place when it was paused.

That's strange, playback should resume from where you paused it. Are you using an output plugin, and if so, does the problem still happen when using the default output instead? Also, are you playing a file or an internet stream? If you pause a stream then the connection may timeout, in which case XMPlay will reconnect when you try to resume (skipping the buffered old data).

Here's an update that adds the option of stopping/releasing the output (instead of just pausing it) when the pause button is pressed:

   www.un4seen.com/stuff/xmplay.exe

Add a "PauseStop=1" line to your XMPLAY.INI file to enable the new option. Note that the buffered data will be dropped then (ie. it will skip ahead), so you probably won't want to have a very large buffer set.

I'm sorry as it was my own mistake. For some reason I've added "PauseStop=1" to ini file.

I downloaded this and replaced my xmplay.exe but now xmplay will no longer start for me?! I was at 3.8.5.3. Can I somehow get an error log or something? ps I have lots of plugins so xmplay usually takes a long time to start.

* moving my plugins folder outside of the whole xmplay folder solved it!

That looks like there's a problem with one of the plugins, but strange that no error message is shown. If you open Window's Event Viewer and check the "Application" log, are there entries for the failed XMPlay launches? Also, do you see anything in the "%LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps" folder in File Explorer?

yes that folder has a few dmp files from today. quite large ones.

App log says:
Problemsignatur:
P1: xmplay.exe
P2: 3.8.5.76
P3: 65ccd2ca
P4: xmp-SidEx.dll_unloaded

then later it did still crash but never mentionen xmp-sidEx.dll again.

but now it runs super stable, and I'm happy, xmplay no longer takes 20 secons to start :D

I believe the xmp-sidex plugin has been superseded by xmp-sidevo, so if it was causing the problem then I don't suppose it really matters now :)

XMPlay sometimes crashes when
ftp://ftp.modland.com/pub/modules/Screamtracker 3/Bogdan/400.s3m
is added to a playlist and scanned with other files, or when its playback starts by double-clicking on it in the playlist while another file is playing.
It also happens that XMPlay calculates different durations of this S3M and different numbers of subsongs.

Hello, XMPLAY user since more than 10 years, and still loving it. I have a little request to ask:

I use multiple devices with Onedrive to sink my stuff, included my favourite musics and my XMPLAY configurations. Would it be possible to have the library memorize the paths to music files with the user profile path environment variable? As of now it records them with the full absolute path, eg. "C:\Users\username\onedrive\music\mytune.mp3", while ideally it should use: "%USERPROFILE%\Onedrive\music\mytune.mp3", this would make the library "portable" and available no matter what the original profile path is, and would work with other cloud storage solutions.

Keep up the good work and Best wishes,

Gabriel

It seems that AIFF files with "unknownINST" in them aren't playable.

...I am so sorry.  That post went through too early.

Examples of these come from Carmen Sandiego - Math Detective - such as RFMUS101.AIFF.

is added to a playlist and scanned with other files, or when its playback starts by double-clicking on it in the playlist while another file is playing.
It also happens that XMPlay calculates different durations of this S3M and different numbers of subsongs.

The issue with this file is that it starts with an invalid pattern number, and XMPlay ends up processing randomness when calculating the length, possibly resulting in a crash. Here's an update that replaces it with an empty 64 row pattern (which seems to be the standard thing):

   www.un4seen.com/stuff/xmplay.exe

The update above adds support for this. If it works well then it may be enabled by default, but for now you can enable it by adding a "UserProfile=1" line to your XMPLAY.INI file. I don't think it'll cause any problems, but you should probably backup your XMPLAY.LIBRARY and XMPLAY.PLS files first just in case.

I would guess that those files are using some unsupported compression. Please upload (or link) an affected file to have a look at here:

OK, I uploaded it as "carmen-math.7z".  ...It looks like it disappeared instantly, though.  I assume it's on purpose?

Yes, uploaded files aren't publicly visible or downloadable for confidentiality. Your file was received, and it appears to be using "ima4" (Apple QuickTime IMA ADPCM) compression, which unfortunately XMPlay doesn't support. It looks like Audacity does support it though, so you could use that to convert the file to WAV format.
