Re: XMPlay Support site: comments and opinions

I'm glad you don't want it to be removed. :) I'll change the description of the addon.
Why would I want it to be removed? It's my work and I'd like to take advantage of it as many users as possible :D
In fact, there's also a thread about this plug-in on this forum (here: http://www.un4seen.com/forum/?topic=6572.0), but it's extremely out-of-date, because at that time it seemed nobody cared about it (except raina, to which I thank very much for his support and feedback), so I just continued posting only on the HyperIM forum instead.

*after looking at the new description*
Aaa...much better. Thank you. I'll keep you posted about new versions. :)

Rah'Dick - according to a comment on the support site, the author of the NNP skin has sent the source to Ian. That was three days ago. Could you please find out what has happened to it? Many thanks.

When the skin was submitted, I emailed the author to ask whether he wanted the sources put on the support site, but got no reply. Perhaps my email got filtered. Anyway, now that he has apparently given permission, I shall send the sources to RD :)

...they're up. :)

By the way, is there an option in this forum software to temporarily disable signatures? I've seen this in other forums and I'd even use it frequently, when posting short two-word replies like this one was supposed to be. I don't want my sig to take up more space than my actual post.

Sorry to you all, but I had forgotten about this forum (Shame on me)...
I am Ernie (from Almere, the Netherlands) and I've send in the NNP (No Nonsense Player) skin.
If there are any questions, remarks or suggestions, please let me now, but please keep in mind that "NNP" is only my first skinning effort ever.
Indeed e-mails from Ian and Thomas did get caught by my spamrules, but I've put their addresses in my "friend-list", so I hope that problem is solved.
Further more I would like to thank Ian for programming the greatest audioplayer in the world and Thomas for making it known to many people! I can't really imagine why on earth I used a player like WA with that cracky sound and all of those useless options... XMPlay rocks and I love it!  ;)
Hope to see you again on this forum!

Seems like AVRCP and A2DP were especially developed to be used with mobile devices and a bluetooth headset. Seriously, I've just heard of these technologies for the first time.

I do not want to insult you, bonyM, but I think a technology as unusual as this doesn't belong into a regular non-mobile Windows music player. If anyone wanted to develop a general-purpose plug-in for this, fine - but stuff like this doesn't belong into the main application.

By the way, anyone else being annoyed by feature requests like "Why doesn't XMPlay do <rare_and_obscure_functionality>?? I use it ALL THE TIME with <totally_unknown_hard_or_software>!!!11"?

I'm sorry, but this thread is not for feature requests. (Yes, I'm exhausted and pissed off.)

Implementation avcrp/a2dp should be in your bluetooth drivers, not in XMPlay. If you properly install your hardware (the bluetooth driver that comes with Windows XP won't suffice), you will see an extra soundcard (Bluetooth-audio) on the output tab.
Please use this thread for comments on the support site only, as the title says.

Evidently my attempt at devising an unambiguous thread title hasn't been totally successful - people just see the word `support' and assume that any kind of request for support belongs here.

Here's another suggested rewording:

`Support site updates (NOT feature requests)'

Just wanted to remind you that the Native AAC/MP4 plugin on the site is out of date. The verison on the site is Revision 1 and the latest version on Sebastian's thread is Revision 3.

The NSFplug website link is broken. Should be http://www.pokipoki.org/dsa/index.php?NSFplug

The Support Site is missing the Resolution AXS WinAmp plugin for playing AXS (the DOS/Windows synthesizer/sampler/tracker app) modules, available here: http://www.resolutionaudio.nl/files.html

Thanks for keeping me on track! Unfortunately, I don't have Internet at my new home yet. Again. :-\

I read the other thread about mod files that weren't supported out of the box (even though they had .mod extension), so I thought it would be useful to add info about exactly what formats are natively supported - some formats seem to have the same extension, but not all are supported. This could be added to the FAQ.

Also, I noticed that there are many good questions unanswered in the comments section, so I think you could check them out at some point.

As I already posted in the other thread: It's known that there's no support for MODs with 15 samples, only 31 samples are allowed.

But is it stated somewhere in the support site? How well is it known, by whom, and is the info easily available?

It's not in the FAQ, and that's where I'd put it.

That would go under http://support.xmplay.com/article.php?id=7#notsupported i guess. But hey, how many 15smp mods are there at all? ;D They are really rare.

WavPack has been updated to 4.50. This includes an update to the playback library in_wv.dll (v2.5).

First, this is the wrong thread for feature suggestions. This is only for the Support Site itself.

Second, reference this post: http://www.un4seen.com/forum/?topic=2263.msg23054#msg23054. You can use the .reg files there as a template to create your own for your icons.

LAME version 3.98 (final) has been out there for quite a while, so I think it would be good to add.

It has not yet replaced 3.97 as the recommended version at Hydrogenaudio, since there haven't been many (any?) public listening tests held, but there does seem to be a consensus that it's at least not worse than the previous one.

Thanks. I'll try to get a batch of updates and new skins online this weekend.
[Edit] There are a bunch of new skins and a few updates online now. :)

a little future request: Possible to donate ;D.

I like this tiny player very very much since I tried it for just a week ago. Why Did I never tried this before (even I have used bass for years and still do).
