I'm also stupendously happy with the new soundcard support! Quickview worked very well with my little netbook with Realtech onboard sound. It also is much faster on this little processor (Intel Atom 1.6 OC to 1.93 Ghz). Quickview plays .MP4 files with full sound at 640x480 while the MPLAYER DOS port struggles to play the same mpeg4 files at 480x360 resolution (with sound) and no dropped frames.

And, thanks for the info about Starodubov URL. I can now play classic Doom in DOS with sound on this same Acer AOA250 netbook, which has been running very well indeed as my tricked out DOS system... Also .MIDI files with the 8mb wavetable files! Wow, it's almost 2015 and DOS is thriving and living strong!

I shall write Mr. Hesseler and inquire about how to get a version of Quickview v2.60 compressed more efficiently with UPX --lzma --ultra-brute. Perhaps he will reply, I hope so.
