Hmm, I guess this must confirm just how popular Musepack is then...?

Or just that nobody has found any bugs yet (aside from quirks in the preferences window that I assume is just minor residue). I mean, you did say that this is a bug-reporting thread... *used the plugin for a couple of hours last night w/o problems*

So Egg, what happened to Nullsoft not really wanting to take the time to add native support for a format that's barely hanging on by a thread? Not to be a jerk or anything, I'm just curious. What made you guys decide to work on this?

I haven't noticed anything other than the options window not keeping settings and the giant blank space to the left of the window.

Yeah, 'Dither output' and 'Use tags for title formatting' aren't used any more.

It now uses Winamp's global settings ('Dither' in Prefs > Playback, and 'Use ATF' in Prefs > Titles), so those two options probably need removing (ooh, even more gray space!)

Basically, the config still needs tidying up, and will probably end up being half the size when it's done.

half the size will reduce half of the gey space

are there any other mpc things coming? (ripping)
and will this once be in the final distro or in wa essentials?

i'd have thought it'd be more likely to go in the essentials package (the sheer abundance of replies to this shows it's just too popular for the main distro ) but that's really down to the devs to make the call on it (possibly going how it went with in_flac initially in essentials to main distro but really depends on how useful it would be i guess)

The plugin works perfectly.
The only small bug I found is that when applying replay-gain it will not immediately apply.
I could only compare it to a FLAC files that immediately applies the replay-gain.

It's much more likely this will end up just stuck in the winamp.com plugins pages. Obviously, as assumed, MPC is pretty dead and not many people will really be that interested in having to download it as part of a winamp bundle (be it the winamp package, or essentials).

Not that in_mpc takes up a whole lot of space, though... and although the format may be dead in that few people are encoding in MPC these days, there are still a lot of MPC files in existence around the world.

It might make it into the Essentials Pack...
although, can it really be classed as "essential"?

As for making it into the Winamp distribution... there's a few patent/legal issues which need looking into first. It took over a year to get native ogg vorbis support included with Winamp due to similar reasons.

It works perfectly with Winamp 5.33. Thanks for supporting Musepack.

Altrough, I miss the equalizer from the old plugin, which was a lot better than the default one.

Yeah, the option to use the built-in Musepack EQ was taken out, so it just uses the Winamp EQ (if turned 'on'). I'm not sure if the built-in one will return or not...

I vote for including this in the winamp essentials pack. it is still a good and interesting format.

I hope that some other plugins can be updated as well. Eg. some of the console formats (gym, spc, nsfe, ...) if the source code is available and the license allows it.

Woot. Great! I didn't track this thread and hadn't noticed the Y2007 updates before.
Can transcoding support be added as well into these plugins? (or is it already?)

not sure, is possibly more likely for ymamp than snesamp (depends on how much of the decode core i can pull out, etc) but would be nice to have both compatible at some point, heh

Hrm, neat... I'm curious, does this update only bring the latest released MPC plugin into Winamp's shared playback/titling/library features? Or is it based on the new libmpcdec 1.2.3 (released November 2006) that supports the fast seeking implemented in the newest encoder, along with an allegedly reduced memory footprint?

It's based on the 0.99g version of the mpc plugin/source.
afaik, the latest version of libmpcdec is 1.2.5 (11th Feb).

Ooops, you're right DJ Egg. It would be sweet if they'd updated the decoding of the plugin to take advantage of the newest encoder's features, but I suppose there's only so much one will do for a format has been long inactive.

Once considered the best format for high-quality lossy audio, Musepack hasn't even been recently tested against the newer LAME and Vorbis revisions for a lack of encoder development.

I've been trying Vorbis's aoTuV beta5, and its amazing how good the music can sound at the lower bitrates... at least compared to MP3 encoded at similar rates. Now Vorbis, that's a good codec with active development. Even if it's not being done by the "official" devs.

I thought Xiph.org ported some of the aoTuV changes back to the 1.1 release? So it's official in a special way.

True, Aoyoume's beta2 improvements were merged into the official libVorbis 1.1 release. That was... at least a year or two ago. And his current improvements -- up to beta5 -- are planned to be integrated, but this is on hold indefinitely pending Monty having time to do so. In other words, official Vorbis releases are in stagnation.

So in essence, yes, aoTuV is "official" Vorbis development, by virtue of being the only development at all.

Is it possible to get the source code of this plugin ?

Thanks,

Hi,
I just installed th Musepack plugin and it plays files perfectly, but when I try using the format converter I keep getting an error that says "Transcoding Failed : Can't Open Decoder". I'm trying to convert the files to mp3s.

Hope you can fix that bug

Yup, bug confirmed (transcoding .mpc->* is borked with 5.34)

5.34 Whatsnew
* Improved: IPC_CONVERTFILE now uses api_decodefile (for ripping & transcoding)

Alas, ^that^ is what broke it...



Personal Wishlist:

in_mpc needs a 'Supported extensions' option

MPC MP+ MPP

I've never seen an .mp+ or .mpp file before, they're all just .mpc these days.

(will also be something to fill up some of that gray space with) ;-)

Not getting plug-in to work...

Hi,
Haven't been using winamp for that long so I probably jsut doing something stupid... hope you can help.
Downloaded the dll to the plug-in directory for winamp.
What more do I need to do to get this to work? Can't find the plugin when I open up winamp.
Any hints would be most appreciated!
