Error creating output file.
« on: October 04, 2019, 05:59:14 PM »
Been getting this when trying to play some MP3's I bought off of Bandcamp. The tracks play fine when played via VLC but when played via WACUP it gives me that error and speeds through the tracks without playing any sound. I've never seen this happen. I was using the last release before the Oct. 3'rd version but it does the same with that one, too.

What output plugin are you using in WACUP?
I made that one skin that one time.

This is my list of plugins:
Chun-Yu's MP3 Writer plug-in v3.0
Ignorant Output v1.0.1
Not So ASIO v1.1
Not So YASAPI v1.1.3
Nullsoft DirectSound Output v2.65
Nullsoft Disk Writer v2.18
Nullsoft WaveOut Output v2.17

If I remember right I installed Chun-Yu's plugin because I was having difficulty copying an old CD to my PC. It was a long time ago though so I can't remember exactly.

EDIT: OK I disabled that plugin and it works now. Thanks for getting me to look at my plugins.

Glad you're sorted now & it would have been because it was likely the selected output plug-in in the list which causes it to be the active plug-in.

Maybe I need to look into making it more obvious which output plug-in is the active one as I've done this myself more times than I should've over the years.

Yeah. I'm a noob at the plugin stuff as I've never really used custom plugins much. Most of the time when playing or converting stuff the default player worked fine. It does seem like it sparkled a really good idea though. :D
