Ogg: The Compressed Music Format Of Choice
« on: 18 May '03 - 23:54 »
Gongrats Alpha, you have converted me into using Oggs as my preferred music format over mp3s ;). They truly sound just as good (or better), while consuming less disk space.

As for XMPlay, there seems to be a tiny little bug in editing the Ogg tags: when you update the tag, the playlist stops responding to normal keyboard commands, until you:
1. move the mouse over the list
2. press a global hotkey for 'volume up/down' or 'open info window'
3. minimize the player / switch program

Sounds a bit like the timer jamming bug really ;D.

Thanks.  I like to think I can make a difference. ;D Actually, don't thank me; thank Ralesk for selling me on it. :)

Ian, do you have anything up on this one? Perhaps missed my initial post?
