Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #12990 (September 24th 2022) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #7236 (March 11th 2021) (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.

Well, I've noticed that having a album title with an (Acute accent) character "’" in it, doesn't help prevent this issue. I will put it.
It took me a bit to realise you're probably looking at the file info dialog. I've had a quick look & it's because I'm generically trying to convert the read data assuming the utf-8 code page but the character you've used doesn't map cleanly with that conversion & it gets messy quickly in not knowing for certain what the encoding of the file might be (I'd not come across any with a BOM on them). Bit stumped on what to do for this for now tbh.

The shuffle aspect always choosing the first item is a known bug with the preview build. The way you're doing it is still hitting that same issue but what you've done would get around it.

The freeze option for classic skins was added in 1.7.11.12580 (August).

Command-line support was added in 1.6.1.10342 (February 2022) & to quote it:
Quote
Added official command-line handling support for interacting with the player when using non-legacy mode or native only mode with the 64-bit builds with limited support provided for legacy mode instances (this is not something that has been formally supported in all prior WACUP builds & is why the functionality has been broken for at least 9 months with the beta builds prior to this build being released)
There's been some tweaks to it in later beta builds but to my knowledge wacup.exe <command> should work irrespective of the mode but if using legacy mode (where the original winamp core is still used for modern skin / eq support), some of the actions are limited to 1 file instead of a complete list of files as the native wacup implementation supports.

It's more down to there only being a single playback pipeline & so only one output window to work with though double video would have a resource hit to add. Supporting more could be possible though like with the multiple vis support, the main issue is the modern skin engine can't correctly handle that because it wasn't coded to do so within the confines of a 2.x style player (winamp3 had the means to play multiple items at once).

You can use the steps that aminifu noted to create a smart view that will do that search by default. You'd just have to not have the ? at the start of what is entered to be the view's query.

There's no way currently to just filter anything that matches to "and" (is something I'll have to consider adding).

You will need to look at specific column values & just work through them as needed e.g. entering the following into the search field to find that string in any of the titles
?title has " and "

Since you're trying to avoid it being part of other words, that's why it has to have the spaces around it otherwise it'll match on things like landing.

It should be resetting the position back to the top if the file currently being shown changes. Have now changed that to happen in the internal builds.

I've had a look with the example & I was incorrectly stripping line breaks from anything after a ] when a [ ] pair was found on a line before it's passed on to the plug-in to render. I've changed what I'm doing so it seems to do what's wanted whilst not causing any obvious regressions from what I can see with prior files (embedded / external) I've used for testing.

I've also changed the no lyrics text as per the suggestion.

The rest of the points still need the core support added to have playback vs what's shown to be possible. For now it's purely just a means of showing what the lyrics text is (if present) over a background image (if configured). I'd also need to double-check but I think I've already set the background image to have a greater level of blending with the background so it's less likely to be overwhelming the text (unless the image is really bright in nature).

Vorbis comments seem so simple at times & then are such an inconsistent mess in others when it comes to what the preferred default should be when certain fields have been used for the same value & how that's changed over time.

Will have a look into changing the behaviour as really I shouldn't even be trying to read the comment field & it should just be the description field based on the specification but that'd mess up so many old files.

You keep toggling the plug-in checkbox but not restarting the program with it left checked as you've been instructed to do. The preview build does not live enable the plug-ins & we clearly have a language issue as you are not understanding my instructions on what to do.

It's possible that it's timing out on what you're trying to play due to the problems that ytdl itself has. Also under prefs -> plug-ins -> input, there should an an enabled 'in_url.dll' named 'streaming url processor'. Without that being present & enabled then the other aspects aren't going to be used. The only other thing is what you're trying to play might not be supported as live streams aren't currently handled & some geo-blocked urls will also fail to connect. An example of an url you're trying to play that doesn't work would be useful.

Not at this time. There is the custom build of the matrix mixer plug-in that might do what you're wanting but it's not directly included in the builds (you can see the beta build threads for what I'm referring to in the extra plug-ins archive).

Preferences -> Advanced -> Supporting Utility / Tool Updates section -> use that & if needed use the delete option before making it try to re-download ytdl.

However ytdl is to an extent broken (can effectively require the whole video to be downloaded now but at a really really slow rate before my side of things can even play the file) & the alternative ytdlp that the betas use required some other changes to get things working so it's not necessarily a direct swapping of one file for another to get things working ok again. Also the exe goes into the WACUP settings folder but it's best to use the prefs action noted above to manage things since that knows where it's expecting things to go.

WACUP doesn't have native CUE support - it'll be implemented eventually.

Skins / Re: Question about WACUP version of Winamp Modern
« on: August 02, 2022, 01:59:43 AM »
I decided against adding a new prefs option & instead simplified things so if the album art plug-in is present & enabled then the attempts to remove the skin provided window will be done (the script derived winamp modern menu is also accounted for thankfully with only a small bit of code to save having to mess with the skin scripts) & if the plug-in isn't present then the skin provided copy will be used.

The option in the plug-in to auto-hide under a modern skin is also now gone so it's down to the simpler enable / disable the plug-in to determine what mode is used to get the one window.

For how you've potentially modified the skin already the script menu handling aspect should work no matter what mod / revision of winamp modern is used & you can try it out with build 12330 which just went up just after you'd posted your reply :)
