Mpxplay v1.57 beta 4 is out (Announce)

Mpxplay v1.57 beta 4 is out on
http://www.freewebtown.com/mpxplay

diffs between v1.57 beta 4 and beta 3
-new/modifications:
-added AIF file playing (in_wav.c, ad_pcm.c)
-added W64 (Sony's Wave64) file playing (but Mpxplay cannot play >2Gb files
yet) (in_wav.c)
-added float64 pcm data handling to WAV,W64,AIF files (lossy downsampled to
float32 yet) (in_wav.c, ad_pcm.c, cv_bits.c)
-added -scc NUM option: soundcard sub-config (currently for Win32/WDS: +1 use
primary buffer, +2 loc-hardware, default=3) (control.c, sc_winds.c)
-CP437 is the default output codepage (-8ccp) (if -8 is not used) (textconv.c)
-FPL list loading is updated to the structure of Foobar2000 v1.0.1, but it's
not backward compatible and loads the filenames only (loadlist.c)
-win32: modified directsound (WDS) configuration (possible small quality improvement
under Win2k/XP) (sc_winds.c)
-win32: -scd option works at WDS output too (sc_winds.c)
-DOS: added 3 new pci-ids (motherboards) to Intel HDA device list (sc_inthd.c)
-bugfixes/modifications:
-flac header handling (faster and less error sensitive) (in_flac.c)
-WAV file output in float32 format (-o -obf) (the header was incorrect, other
players didn't play these files) (sc_wav.c)
-lfn to id3: updir is not used for album or artist if it doesn't contain '-'
and the file already has title (chkentry.c)
-F2: creating of savefilename (from updir) and saving playlist without path
(savelist.c)
-utf16 to char conversion (eol at id3v2) (textconv.c)
-display bug (writing bufpos in wrong pos) in dos-shell using -bb,-bbm options
(display.c)
-win32: optimized spectrum analyser and playlist editor drawing (faster and
less flashing) (display.c)
-making the source compatible with OW 1.9 (but Mpxplay v1.57 is compiled with
OW 1.3 yet)

Thnx!
Of course any feedback (bug report) would be great. :-)
I don't plan to add anything to this version, so the next release will be the 'final'.

I have not tried latest under pure DOS (though it never worked there before), but it no longer works on my Vista SP2 laptop. Previous beta worked fine.

More details? "No longer works" What does it mean?
And the Win32 version or DOS version in emulator?

Win32: Try -scc 1 or -scc 0 or -scs WIN options (steb by step in this order).
(in the beta4 the default -scc value is 3, I will change it to 1, but I whink so Vista has no WDS (directsound) output, so the +2 flag has no effect at you)
DOS version: I don't know... :-|

btw. there is an sf.net forum for Mpxplay...

Doesn't play any songs, somehow gets stuck before it can begin, which is a regression (for me).

Win32 version (as DOS won't run at all there due to no full-screen support).

"-scc 1" seems to fix it. (Others do too, apparently, but "-scc 0" warns about lower quality.)

No idea.

Not a surprise or big concern, just that it (in the past) seemed to not work in DOS here on this "Intel HDA"-ish (??) card.

Yeah, but I always forget. Good thing you dropped by here. Thanks x 1000**2, BTW. ;-)

Maybe I was wrong, so what do you see in the right upper corner (soundcard type)? WIN or WDS?

I plan to modify (in v1.58) the pci card detection routines (from pci-bios to direct pci scan)), so Mpxplay will detect all of the Intel HDA compatible cards, but only if the motherboard's north-bridge is an Nvidia or ATI based chip (search by vendor-id, no need to know the exact device-id). But there are other boards with other chips too...

I will after retesting Beta 4 (IIRC I pirated it from HX ...)

Cool :-) So you'll add a "use PCI BIOS instead direct hardware access" hack ?

BTW, anyone knows public FTP sites with audio files (legal is preferred from piracy, OGG/OGA + FLAC + WAVPACK is preferred from MP5) ?

I did try latest DOS binary (1.57b4) earlier today, but even with headphones, nothing.

Hm, I think so I've seen only an earlier SP1, without DirectSound support.
So SP2 already has it...

The playing starts and no sound on the output or the card is not detected at all?
In the second case, you can send/write the Vendor-ID & Device-ID from the "Multimedia Device" line of the boot screen, I'll add it to the device-list.
In the first case: I have no idea, probably bios problem...

It thinks it's playing (spectrum analyzer moves), but I hear nothing.

There is none, BIOS doesn't show anything. It's the same NVidia/Conexant/Intel HDA card I mentioned before. I don't know more than that, offhand.

If you want, I'll also try that PCI-32 sniffer tool that DOS386 pointed to in order to report more details, but I'm not pressing you to fix it (since it's indeed probably just my lame-o hardware's problem).

The same happens with the Intel HDA on my HP 550 laptop. No sound comes out from the laptop's internal speaker, but if I connect external speakers to the line out jack, there is sound.

You mentioned something similar a while back, which is why I tried headphones (didn't work either). I may have to borrow some small speakers temporarily from someone to test the line out, but I'm not optimistic. (I did check the BIOS, but there's nothing configurable re: sound in there.)

BTW, your docs seem out of date, the URL for DOSLFN isn't Geocities anymore (defunct) but http://adoxa.110mb.com/doslfn/index.html .

P.S. I understand your frustration at possibly losing data. You may wish to try StarLFN (although it needs to not use a +H longname.dat file in DR-DOS or maybe FreeDOS too), esp. since it doesn't by default actually do anything but create a "database" file for SFN<->LFN conversion.

You mean in the FAQ.TXT? Ok, it's corrected now... thnx

> P.S. I understand your frustration at possibly losing data (with DOSLFN)

I'm not sure that's still true. I've almost lost a partition due to DOSLFN + Mpxplay, but some months after this event I've made some corrections in my program (in the subdir-scannig?), just I have no free partition to test again the same problems (I mean, I have only two fat16 partitions to do anything under DOS)... So, be carefull... :-|

Free FTP server collection:
http://techie-buzz.com/collections/50-ftp-sites-to-download-softwares-games-music-movies-and-e-books.html
But most of them are very slow or doesn't work at all. (or timeout of Mpxplay is too short)
Try: ftp://ftp.freenet.de/pub/.disk0/ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/songs
Recommended to use the -inl option at Mpxplay!

Mpxplay v1.57 beta 5 is out

A beta 5 release is also out now.
http://www.freewebtown.com/mpxplay

Diffs (bugfixes, modifications) between v1.57 beta 5 and beta 4:
-drive & subdir scan (-ds or d:\*.*\*.*) (string.c, diskdriv.c)
-CDW (audio cd) playing (drv_cd.c, mpxinbuf.c)
-data loss at the begin of first song (buffer control bug) (mpxinbuf.c, in_file.c)
-auto playlist save using -ds with (the default) -psu 19 (startup.c)
-playlist from stdin (-@i) (loadlist.c)
-better random play at start (ie: -prn -ds cde) especially under win32 (mixed.c)
-surround in lq mode (HQmode=0) (fx_surr.c)
-'l' key in sublist (now it doesn't jump out from sublist, if it doesn't find the file in the playlist) (keyboard.c)
-xce option is not saved automatically in Desktopmode ("confirm exit" is not enabled always after using -xce option once) (control.c)
-displaying of startup "Virtual drive error" window caused messy desktop (re-ordered init callings) (control.c, mpxplay.c)
-mpxplay.ini: better handling/saving of global variables (at unknown variables, if exe and ini version don't match) (control.c)
-mpxplay.ini: loading if it's read-only (with warning message) (control.c)
-WDS: modified default -scc value from 3 to 1 (disabled loc_hardware flag) (because it doesn't work everywhere) (sc_winds.c)
-WDS: the loc_hardware flag is disabled at multichannel output too (was always enabled at -oc > 2) (sc_winds.c)
-WDS: removed false "primary buf" error message at -scc 0 (sc_winds.c)
