Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19100 (May 10th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19100 (May 10th 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.

I'm in love w/ Winamp & Wacup and will always be
« on: April 01, 2023, 11:13:22 PM »
but, and this is a serious but: As long as there's no reliable sync between my PC and my Phone possible I'll be looking for sidekicks resp. other solutions to fulfill my desires. As it is in any other relationship.
This is crucial! I'm no IOS/iTunes guy and rather won't be, so Windows and Android it is. I just want to sync my playlist from my PC to my phone. Building playlists on the phone itself is tedious af - you all know that.
I tried several services in the past and am now hanging with MediaMonkey.
My main music driver on my main machine is still Winamp, but...

Look in the preferences panel under plugins/Portables
Make sure USB and MTP plugins are enabled.
Connect the phone in normal mass storage mode, and the first time the removable device is seen WACUP should show a popup asking you what to do.
You can force it to show the popup if you click the "configure" button when selecting the USB plugin in the prefs.
It will ask you to select the drive letter the phone is using, and then pressing the "connect drive" button should make the phone now show in the portables section of the media library.
Right-click on the device in the media library to go directly to the settings for that storage device.
The settings include whether you want to automatically sync from playlists or recent files etc.

Preferences -> Plug-ins -> Media Library -> ml_pmp.dll (portables support) needs to be enabled from the plug-in list which isn't done by default even if the portable support is installed as most don't need that plug-in (nor it's sub plug-ins aka the pmp_*.dll) & the impact it has.

Doing that & then following what was suggested above should be enough to get things working. However as it's all down to re-using the portables support from 5.666 there may be issues trying to use it & I'm not near starting on making a replacement plug-in.
