(1) How do I get the library directory monitoring going? I've added several directories, each containing playlists, but they all show up in the list as having no entries.
Do the directories only contain playlists? The monitoring only actually looks for playable files and ignores playlists, so playlists will still need to be added manually. I wasn't really sure whether to process playlists in monitored directories, but in the end decided not to, as the playlists could contain files from other directories.
(2) I wonder why the sample rates available don't correspond with all of the rates supported by my soundcard? For example, my soundcard supports 88200 kHz, but in XMPlay there's a jump from 48000 to 96000. I have `set hardware sample rate' checked.
The sample rates in the Output options page are just defaults, and do not represent what the output/device/drivers support. To set another rate (eg. 88200), you can enter it instead of choosing one of the defaults.
Note that if the output does not support the chosen settings, then it can use its own settings (see "Output" text in the General info).
Other plug-ins (like MiniLyrics, xmp-scrobbler or Flanger, which worked in 126.96.36.199 as DSP plug-ins) are not visible anymore
. How can these plug-ins be used in XMPlay 3.4?
I'm afraid old DSP plugins won't work with 3.4, and will need to be updated. An updated xmp-scrobbler plugin should be available later today/tomorrow, and I'll put an updated Flanger example (DSP plugin API) up on the XMPlay page shortly.
One note although. When running a fullscreen visual and the title pops up, the XMPlay icon still has a low resolution, it deserves a lot more
Yeah, it uses the normal icon blown-up. It was either that or bloat the EXE with a high res icon... chunky icon won
the Reverb option sound a little different (better, of course). The bad part of the new Equalizer is that the skins have to be updated.
Yep, the reverb has been updated/improved
When using old 5-band EQ skins, XMPlay will automatically adjust the new/extra bands, so there shouldn't be too much of a problem. The extra bands can also be accessed using the EQ config dialog.
did you decide eventually to avoid the implementation of out plugins solution and instead convert from waveout to directsound?
Nope, XMPlay still uses Waveout by default. A DirectSound plugin is available on the XMPlay page.
