Thanks saga, never really looked at that window very closely, gave it a good read at the support site now.  I had anticipated the usual "save settings" choice on the EQ preset drop-down, which would be more intuitive with that particular DSP, but this will do the job!

... the latest "in development" XMPlay build (that saga is referring to) is available here:

   www.un4seen.com/stuff/xmplay.exe

"404 Not Found"

That's most probably because there is no newer test version than the latest released version, which you can get from the main XMPlay site.

anyone know why the stuff version is triggering a virus warning?

The link at https://www.un4seen.com/stuff/xmplay.exe works for me and is delivering version 3.8.3.8 as of today;  the package linked at the main XMPlay site still has 3.8.3.4.

No virus warning for me, probably a false positive.

"reputation" typically hints at the "popularity meter" that many AV vendors seem to use these days; essentially this means that if only few people (using the same AV as you) have downloaded this exact version of the executable before, it will think that the executable is suspicious becuase why would you be such an invidiualist who uses software that is not used by thousands of other people. If the "reputation" of the executable is low, it has nothing to do with its content at all, it just means that it's not very commonly downloaded. Ignore the warning and/or submit the executable as a false positive to your AV vendor.

Any chance to implement auto splitting of lines wider than info window?

Options and stuff => Appearance => Info window => Maximum text width:... (0 = no limit)

Make it 0 or what you want

Hi Ian.

I have small suggestion. In File Info window, size is in bytes, which is not that convenient. Maybe add .ini setting to make it in KB/MB?

And another suggestion while we're at the info window: Show ID3v2 tags before ID3v1 tags. The better information source should be shown first. ;)

I have a question about how random play works...

I had about 200 files loaded and it seemed to me that some files were played twice maybe even three times before other were even played once.

Does random keep track of what was played so that all files are played once before going back and playing them again?


TIA, Mort

As long as you do not replace the playlist, XMPlay keeps track of played/unplayed files and won't repeat them until all files have been played.

Native Opus playback support would be great :)

Isn't xmp-opus native enough?

Sajadi:  what saga said!  And note that the current xmp-opus.dll supports the latest release libopus 1.2.1 decoding library  :)  Enjoy!

That's misleading, you do not need the most recent decoder to decode files saved with the latest encoder. Encoder updates are backwards-compatible.

Um, my intention was not to make a "misleading" statement, I was merely making the point that Ian's plugin is kept completely up-to-date.

I'm currently using my music collection (including song-specific settings and library information) two devices, but the base path to the collection is different (and it's not just a matter of different drive letters). I wonder if "check other drives for missing files" could be extended to arbitrary path, or if a different way of just moving the entire library including song-specific settings to a new root path. If not, I could write an external tool for that, but for that I'd need a specification of the .set format (for xmplay.library I already have code).

I think it would be useful if XMPlay could (optionally) save the current song position when WM_QUERYENDSESSION, i.e. close with position saved on system shutdown.

I think the position should be saved if the "Save playback position upon closing" option is enabled (in the "Miscellaneous" page). Do you have that enabled and still find that the position is not saved when you shutdown?

I do indeed not have this option enabled, what I was thinking of was mostly using this e.g. when having to quickly shutting down my laptop, or in case Windows updates decide to restart the computer. But apart from these cases, I don't think I would usually want to keep the playback position unless I specifically choose that option from the menu.
