Grab the latest SVN. It has support for the MOD files.Why does MP not play the formats that BASS was originally designed to play in their engine as XMPlay does? The formats I'm trying to play are specifically tracker formats (.mod, .s3m, .xm, .it, etc.) I made sure to add the extensions to the supported formats list and enabled the BASS engine.
Please note, you have a delay of some seconds when starting the first file to play, but after that it works perfect.
I didn't work with MOD files before, but i noticed that they lack of tagging capabilities. In most of the files you just can specify a Title/Name, but there are no fields for Artist/Album/Genre etc., so i think it is not worth writing a Tagreader plugin for them.
Correct me if i'm wrong.
Because of the lack of tagging, they will not appear in the Database Views, since they are ignored by the Tagreader, so use the Share View please.
"Play CD" is there for Audio CDs only.Why doesn't "play cd" function in "Music" section not work with multimedia cds (cds that have more than one audio format on them).. is it just designed for audio cds? It should be labeled as so if this is the case. I've used past releases of MP so I am familiar with the UI, I guess to be fair I might not have used this function before until now. I wish MP would do a quick lookup and pop those files it finds in the current playlist and start to play them.
i asume with "multimedia cds" aou mean cds containing various files, like mp3, etc, or your MOD files in a directory structure.
For this use the Share view as well.
You will see all your optical drives in the Share view, when you press the ".." to move up.
