I love this player! I've been trying to build internet radio players out of old hardware and this is a GREAT solution. Beats trying to get a lite version of XP to run…
Loaded a packet driver and currently have it playing successfully from several stations at the moment, only problem is I'm a little confused by the GUI, is there a screenshot that has all these things labeled?
Also as part of making these "no touch" machines that will boot straight to mpxplayer and play the internet stream, is there a setting to force repeat so it'll loop in case of a disconnect?
My other question is about song titles, I doubt anyone that I build these for will want to look, but are metadata song titles coming soon?
1. "confused by the GUI", what does this mean? I know it's not designed too much.
It should look like this: http://mpxplay.sourceforge.net/mpxplay.gif
If it doesn't, read the readme.win file.
And this is a console program, don't wait so functionality like at a normal Win-GUI.
2. If the connection losts, the program skips (after 10-15 secs) to the next song in the playlist (create a playlist), it can be an other http stream or an "offline content" (files on disk) too. You can enable "replay playlist" too (-pre option). Maybe the replay-song (-pre1) function doesn't work at http streams yet (because it just seeks to the begin of the file).
3. I will work on the MP3 http metadata reading (if you think to this), and I'll try to do at the OGG streams too (but none of them is easy)
2, If the connection losts, the program reconnects to the server automatically. If it cannot do that, then it will skip.
1, If you move the mouse cursor above the buttons and some items, you will get a short info under the buf/cpu line.
