Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19320 (June 5th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19320 (June 5th 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.

The Wacup Winamp project uses the same approach as Poweramp on Android, saving by genre using the genre as the name for the EQ presets. But files in Winamp are saved as .eqf whereas files in Poweramp are saved as .json, It would be wonderful to get those two players standardized without the need to recreate all genre based eq presets? Both best players on their system.

Hi dro,

Thanks again for your response.  WACUP reinstalled with video option checked, but wma files do not play.  Instead of doubling up on messages, I've responded to your email.  If we get to a solution I'll post it here so it's available to everyone.

Cheers,

ARH

Un-checking video support prevents in_dshow from being installed as I treat that as only being used for video formats though I should've changed that with the 193xx installers since I'm now trying to force WMA to in_dshow as long as the default associated extension configuration for that plug-in hasn't already been modified.

That would most likely explain why that's not working & I'll need to modify things to offer a WMA audio entry to allow for in_dshow to be considered for installing even if video support is intentionally disabled (this isn't ideal & a non in_dshow WMA mode is needed). Otherwise if it is present & the in_dshow config is showing WMA in it's list then it's likely the OS install doesn't have the necessary support.

I'd still need an example file showing the aac issue.

Hi - I've just installed the latest version of WACUP (WACUP preview build v1.99.15.19320 (x86)) on Win11.  During the custom install I expended each option and checked every box except the video playback one.  WACUP will still not play aac and wma files.  It's not a massive issue as I don't have many of these files, but you know what it's like when you want to fix something!

All the best to everyone :-)

I should be apologising for inadvertently breaking it & it'll be fixed for the next build. Its now noted in the known issues for the build though it appears the workaround has an issue itself with it overlapping part of the window (the resize / minimise actions still work but it's just not showing them due to overdrawing).

You can workaround it for now by going to preferences -> skins -> classic skins & checking the option to use the skinned font for the songticker.

I use an old app "MusicIP Mixer", that was last updated in 2008 (https://musicip-mixer.software.informer.com/). It appears to no longer be supported, but it still works and does a good job creating playlists. It takes a long time to create 'acoustic fingerprints' for each audio file, since it's online database is no longer available. It's power tools feature is also no longer working.

Once created, it then uses the acoustic fingerprints and selectable metadata tag filters to create dynamic and interesting playlists. IMO, it does a better job than what Winamp had.

That'd have been predixis musicip or something like that which I never liked since it was an embedded version of it's program instead of leveraging the existing libraries that winamp of that time was already providing. I know some liked it but imho it wasn't ever nice to use.

A form of dynamic playlists will be looked into at some point but it's not a top priority vs other things I've already got in the queue to finish & it should already be able to be achieved mostly by playing around with smartviews & the query language to try to get associated results since that's what I was planning on the dynamic playlists to be based around.
