ZDoom works for you? On my PC and notebook too it crashed. I can hear a tiny pop sound as soundcard was initialized but something else shoot it down. I suspected PMODEW crap so I unpacked & stripped it and used D3X but same result.
Of course I tried with simplified autoexec/config and even without any drivers and memmgrs...

In case of Timidity it's better. It plays fine on my notebook ICH4 AC'97. On PC it finds ICH7 HDA but I cannot hear sound from any output. (Mplayer can play on my HDA).

As I looked further the SDR driver for QV is just some wrapper around mpxplay's drivers (taken from Linux). It seems to hve some simple API, there's sample C code of RAW player and it's just a few func. calls. I'd like to know how it's handled multiple soundards in one PC if it's possible to select one specific (I prefer Audigy 2 over HDA).

BTW the SDR driver on Ruslan site is older - 2011 than on QV site - 2014 so maybe there was some bug fixes that did't propagated to Zdoom and Timidity. Unfortunatelly Ruslan's email address is not working.

BTW2 I have some quirk in QV on PC that I cannot fwd/rewind video with arrow keys but on notebook I can, does it works for others? ESC terminates OK.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
