Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #13286 (October 21st 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.

General Discussion / Re: replaygain ? whats all about?
« on: November 12, 2022, 04:49:06 PM »
You may need to look at the replaygain preferences & adjust the mode that is used as depending on what metadata is present for the file it may end up using the default adjustment i.e. you might be better using the track level instead of album level. There's also a bug with MP3 files where it's not correctly applied because of problems with the re-used plug-in from 5.666 which may also be causing you problems.

Preview Build Discussion / Re: Milkdrop

Desktop mode is implemented in a different manner with WACUP compared to the 5.666 build of the plug-in & that prevents the old shortcut working. I don't have a suggestion at this time on how to achieve the old behaviour with the WACUP build of milkdrop.

Changing double or triple size mode can vary a bit on how it's going to adjust the position of the windows depending on where they are at the time as well as what type of skin is being used. For classic skins there are also some issues with the handling depending on which monitor if it's a multi-monitor setup it is & the relative position of the monitor that WACUP is running on compared to the primary one. Additionally when the windows are not grouped then things can change around as well. I don't have any intentions on changing the behaviour that's used for now after the mess that went one post-preview build with it.

That has the same effect as Ignorant Output doesn't do anything. I just wasn't sure if you're needing to locally listen to things or not at the same time.

The problem is mostly like that what you're hearing isn't what the streaming dsp is getting as the option to crossfade slightly on track change in the default output plug-in is probably enabled. If you goto preferences -> plug-ins -> output -> directsound -> fading tab to disable it & see if that helps.

As the output plug-in fakes crossfading whereas the dsp is just going to get the immediate data given to it & that can cause these hard-cuts on track change & is something that I'm going to eventually re-work so my streaming source plug-in will instead get things in a manner after all processing & the output plug-in won't be responsible for track cross-fades (i.e. allowing it to work in a manner that's expected irrespective of the plug-ins being used).

Preview Build Discussion / Re: WACUP not adding my flacs to the library
« on: October 09, 2022, 12:21:47 PM »
It's a bug with the current build as I've got this in the changelog for what'll eventually become the next preview build.

Fixed the api for getting the current list of supported file extensions not always generating a valid response which would then cause things like local library importing or folder drag & drop to miss files

Skins / Re: Issues with Components and desktopalpha="1"
« on: October 01, 2022, 11:01:31 PM »
I guess I'm wrong / misremembering as i didn't think any non-wasabi windows would work unless it's down to those skins doing their standard frame in a way to fake transparency (am not in a position to try out the skins to check for a few more days).

As I read it as related to how Windows does composition of multiple windows within a parent. Modern skins are a pain so whatever 😉

From what I remember it's due to how the OS works with layering of child windows though I think things changed with that well after gen_ff was initially made that might now allow it to work with modification of some aspects with window creation (not something you can do via maki). Something to possibly look into once I've gotten back into coding.

Preview Build Discussion / Re: Lyrics Plugin - Spacing and more, Hi

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.

Skins / Re: Big Bento Modification: ModPlace
« on: September 06, 2022, 08:39:52 PM »
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.

General Discussion / Re: Search Syntax
« on: August 29, 2022, 09:29:00 PM »
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.
