qPlayEx small file bug and suggestions

Post by twodev »

I've just noticed that qPlayEx has a problem playing small sound files (eg. wave files < about 80kb here). It just stays silent when playing these files.

Just guessing: In case you load all audio files as BASS streams this could cause the problem? Small files like to be loaded as BASS samples afaik.

Also it tends to GPF when listening through many small files.

I'd like to suggest these features or options:
- stop playing sound when player window is closed with ESC key
- play next/previous file in panel feature (currently I'm using dirty macros)

Thanks for the nice plugin, Vladimir. Hoping for an update!

Excellent plugin! Two suggestions:

1) Is it possible to make a quick fade-in/out when going into pause, playing or stopping? (Like with Winamp's out_ds.dll plugin)
2) Global hotkeys do not work for me... how do they work? I configured Ctrl+all the numbers in the numpad to the different functions (volume, fast forward, play, stop etc) but they work only when the Far window is active...

Keep up the good work, CrOm!

Please say your OS version, and show your hotkey.reg file

It would be great, just to not be "aggressive" with the speakers when releasing the pause at high volumes :D

I knew there was something I wasn't doing right... The "global" hotkeys are not the same as the Far ones...
OS is Win XP SP3. I will build a Hotkey.reg and let you know, but I need to know how to handle the numpad numbers. I want to handle all with Ctrl+the numpad numbers (like in Far):

"Play"="Ctrl+NumEnter"
"Pause"="Ctrl+Num2"
"Stop"="Ctrl+Shift+NumEnter"
"Rew"="Ctrl+Num4"
"FF"="Ctrl+Num6"
"Prev"="Ctrl+Num1"
"Next"="Ctrl+Num3"
"VolUp"="Ctrl+Substract"
"VolDn"="Ctrl+Add"
"GUI"="Ctrl+Num0"

Is it possible?

The Hotkeys work PERFECTLY.

THANK YOU CrOm you da mannnnnnnn! :Yahoo!:

Edit: What is the code for "Enter" in the numpad? I tried "Enter" alone and it works, but also normal Ctrl-Enter works :crazy:

Two more tiny bugs:

1) On the Playlist, Shift-F7 moves the current song down, and Shift-F6 moves it up... OK, when moving it up it moves up but also starts playing and it shouldn't (Shift-F7 works properly :D)
2) When the Playlist is on the panel, if the screen saver starts it doesn't work properly (The screen saver does not clear parts of the playlist panel so it looks garbled)

Maybe this clears it up:

Shift-F6 is acting exactly the same as F6.
F7 and Shift-F7 are OK.

I am so so so so sorry!! :?
Yes, I had Shift-F6 on Extended Copy, I changed it and now QPlay works OK!
The only question remaining is what is the key code for Enter in the numpad :oops:

Thanks for your support, CrOm!!!

:) Hi All...

I Was Thinking About qPlayEx Ability To Play Media Files Inside Archives (RAR ZIP ACE and so on)...

I Was Unable To Play Them... Even If On qPlayEx Play List The Files That I've Chosen Appear...

A Really A Great Plugin... Have Almost Replaced WinAmp For Me! Just Missing The Archive Support!
