Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #18916 (April 18th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #18916 (April 18th 2024) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Hi

I had the 2nd problem years ago when I was using total random programmation and I found a way to do it so you never have twice the same song.

Once you loaded your songs and folders in the playlist window click down the playlist window on Misc > Sort > Randomize list

The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+R

You can do this twice or more if you think the order is not your taste and then you play the whole playlist from the first song without enabling the shuffle mode

It's another way to shuffle

Hope it helps

Hi Aminifu

I did not notice it was not working in Wacup and don't know the answer to your question

To do this I use a free software called Foobar2000
it has interesting features of embedding an image in whole album files in one time
or batch process to embed in one time, for example in a whole library cover files if you got the cover image in each album folder
or conversely extract embedded cover art to create a cover image in each album folder
and then remove all embedded images in the whole library files


May this help in waiting

Hi
Don't know if I understand the question but

If you select the whole media library mp3 files, right click and choose "send to > calculate Replay Gain", in the end, if you save to files Replay Gain values will written in Metadata for each files for the whole library.

Then if in Preferences > Playback you activate Replay Gain, whatever playlist created on the fly will respect those values written in Metadata.

Calculate Replay Gain for a huge Media library can take a lot of time but it's worth the time

Hope this helps

I removed this post because I did not find it.
I saw a link talking about beta build on your download page but did not look enough.
It's just an anchor link to a text about being beta tester.
I ain't got much time to test a lot of things but right now I'm testing wacup streaming possibilities

Hi Dro and thanks for the answer.
May be you could give me a link to this build on PM please ?

I know you don't plan to be shoutcast V2 compatible. Infortunately Icecast don't stream cover artwork...

May be a V1 shoutcast compatibility with streaming art correctly working would be a great thing ^^

Hello everybody

I am trying Wacup streaming Source with shoutcast on a local server. I will talk longer about this later.
I just want to report a bug about shoutcast history not working and I don't know why.
Don't know if it's because of parameters in my config file (It's a shoutcast V2 config file), if the problem comes from a parameter in Wacup Preferences or if it's just a bug.

I mean that shoutcast history reports only 3 or 4 songs in the history (the config file says 20) and it displays Mick%2 for Mick Jagger - She's the boss
or Steel%2 for Steel Pulse - Natty

Anyone for an idea ? Thanks for support

I have the last public build (July 23rd 2020) and I'm looking how to activate this one... Really useful with large playlists.
I have seen the option "flash playlist entry when using show entry in playlist"
but when in library view I don't see the option.
In Winamp versions I think it was in "Send to" context menu.
Where is it please ?

Hi Dro

My setup is simple
What I'm testing today is :

Latest Wacup with multiple DSP plugin (to insert Jammix Enhancer plugin in the soundchain then shoutcast source dsp on V2 option)
This is routed to Shoutcast GUI : sc_srv x86  (you said x64 sc_srv is not a good idea) as public server via 500Mbps upload ffth fiber connection.

I am not sure to really understand what you say about relaying a local server, but I try to stay the simplest as possible.
I don't plan to rent external hosting. I got good connection and prefer to control what I can by myself ... I don't specially like online radio managers and disk space limitations.

I been using shoutcast V1 for 9 years with no problem but since I updated to V2 (only interested in streaming my cover arts new feature) I spend 2 years tweaking things and testing different file versions
with no real success about stream stabilility.

But if I'm the only guy interested in this feature I understand you're not in a hurry to bring it to Wacup. I know external services can display cover art images but they don't know half the music I play and don't always display the good one even when they know it.

BTW : I tried to calculate new replay gain EBU R128 for my whole library (about 15k files). After a moment Wacup closes with no crash report.
May be a memory or thread priority problem (My server has 12Go ram). Don't know.

Thanks again Dro

Thanks for your answers Dro

I'm a bit confused about wich way to choose to improve my radio stream.
I'm still looking for a stability in my stream but now that I display cover arts on my site's player it's hard to come back to V1

My images are basic jpg 300x300px between 40 and 90K and I don't stream the stream branding logo
Sometimes the song changes are ok but often glitches happens.

I've seen the in_mp3.dll Wacup uses has better sound quality and strength than the Winamp 5 one
Maybe you know some x64 version numbers of dsp and sc-srv who would be more stable ?

Thanks anyway
Vik

So... no plan to implement artwork cover stream... Bad news

It was the only new feature that convinced me to update to shoutcast V2 two years ago
I've since experienced a lot of stream stability problems :hiccups, glitches and ticks at beginning and end of songs.
I was hoping you would do this in a better way

I'm gonna try Wacup with shoutcast source DSP 2 but please keep on thinking about it. It's a great feature.

Hello

I am trying Wacup as a local streaming server to see the difference with Winamp 5.8 and shoutcast source DSP 2.3.5.


My question is : "Does Wacup stream source stream cover art ?"
If yes i did not managed to do it. How to do ?
If no... Do you plan to implement this feature ?

This feature is really important for me

Thanks for your answers
