Suggestion
« on: 1 May '03 - 13:30 »
I want a new window with all pattern's tracks  displayed, with the "mute" option for each track.
And i want a "loop patern" play mode for looping a s part of a song.

This would be very-very-very nice... and usefull for playing live some .xm and mixing...

Any programmeur was interested by this idea ?

This almost sounds like you want a tracker, not a player.

Saving streams
« Reply #2 on: 3 May '03 - 00:57 »
Hi Ian,

Here's a scenario.  I open up DI and I hear a song I really like.  I right-click on the playlist entry and say "Write to disk", and...

Well, it stops playing, and for 3 out of 5 entries it crosses the entry with a red line.  For the fourth one, it gives me a file save dialog, and then when I press Okay, it rebuffers it, but the song is already over.

My suggestion is that XMPlay (a) checks if you're saving the stream that is presently being played, and (b) starts buffering it when you indicate that you wish to save it, but throws away the data until you press the "Okay" button.

How's that sound?

And another suggestion

In addition to that, I'm uploading a WMA called "The Lonely TWO.wma".  (I accidentally uploaded "The Lonely One" in ASCII.)  With 2.6, if I press stop, or fast forward, then XMPlay freezes...  Does it happen with the current beta?

No problems with that WMA here, so whatever it was appears to have already been sorted :)

I'll look into the suggestion.

Y'know, there *is* a reason why it tells you to RTFM when you first run XMPlay... 8)

The "Miscellaneous" panel
=========================
...
RESTRICT DL RATE - restrict the download rate of internet files. If enabled, the rate is restricted to the rate required to sustain playback. Otherwise, the file will be downloaded as quickly as the internet connection allows. This option does not affect WMA file streaming or Winamp plugins.

You -- I think that if you don't tell it to restrict download rate it won't throw away what's already buffered.

That piece of FM doesn't even suggest this interpretation to me, Boggy :P
