|2000-07-03 New versions of the Amarok and VidAmp plugins (again)|
Oops, I messed up the releases from yesterday... The date in the About box was wrong, and
I also noticed a strange delay in the DestroyWindow() call. My fix seems to work though!
Those talented guys over at MessySoft do sneak some nice surprises into their products
to keep us programmers entertained...|
Anyway, I just uploaded the new versions... The version numbers are the same, but the "correct" versions have the date "03 Jul" in them.
|2000-07-02 New versions of the Amarok and VidAmp plugins|
The new version of VidAmp fixes the "crash at exit" that many users have reported.
Apparently, version 2.6 of WinAmp has been changed around a bit internally and this,
combined with a slightly ugly technique I used to use in Amarok and VidAmp, caused
The changes to WinAmp also mean that if you use certain plugins there is a very large risk that WinAmp enters a deadlock state when quitting. I wonder who came up with that brilliant idea... and why. Anyway, I've fixed that as well in my plugins. The only drawback is that in very rare cases (I hope, heh) WinAmp will take 20 seconds to shut down.
VidAmp v1.0 - changes:
|2000-02-13 Version 1.1 of the Amarok Plugin|
I've just uploaded an update to the Amarok plugin. Here are the changes since
|1999-12-07 ZIP/RAR unpacker plugin|
|I´ve written a small plugin that lets you compress files with ZIP or RAR. This is primarily intended for the MOD-style formats and the only extensions supported in this first release is MDZ and MDR. Just compress the songs using ZIP or RAR, rename them to MDZ or MDR respectively, and this plugin will decompress the files automatically!|
The long-awaited (heh) WinAmp version of the Amarok Player is here!|
Basically, this plugin is a sub-song manager. It enables you to put "bookmarks" in songs so that you can easily jump to a particular position in a song. It works with all input plugins that support seeking.
Another feature of the Amarok plugin is that it can "talk" to input plugins that support music formats with sub-songs. This means that Amarok displays which sub-songs the current song has, and you can easily jump to any of these. Currently, the only input plugin that interfaces to Amarok is Per Lindén's TFMX plugin, but hopefully others will follow.
I've also added Amarok skins to my favourite skins.
|1999-02-13 The IR-Man|
My IR-Man remote control receiver arrived last week! It works perfectly and the
receiver is very sensitive, much more so than the tape deck my remote control
belongs to =].|
There were a few features I missed in the IR-Man plugin, so I added them... (check the plugins section)
|1999-01-29 I found a TFMX plugin!|
I found a plugin for playing TFMX modules (see "Links").
Even though it's an early alpha release, it seems to work very well.|
Now that I have plugins for FutureComposer, SoundMon and TFMX, I can listen to almost all my old mods from the Amiga days through WinAmp. The remaining few obscure mod formats would probably require a full emulator of the Amiga CPU and sound hardware, a la SIDPlay...
|1999-01-24 A web page for my WinAmp stuff...|
Well, what´s new... not much. I have only one WinAmp 2.x skin and two SidAmp skins,
but it´s a start!|
