@j7n, did you manage to get it working under Win98 on your machine? I'm interested in why its having problems. I've tweaked a few settings in this build but I don't think there is much else I can do. I might dig out the old 400MHz computer from the garage with Win98 on it to test on the real thing.
Hey, I've uploaded an update to fix the ReplayGain in APE tags. The new version is 0.2.0.14.
The resolution is just the decoder output bit depth - its best left on 16 bit if you use DSP plug-ins, otherwise you can experiment with high bit depths especially if you've got a good soundcard.
@Sylph, are you using WA5.x? If so, you can enable the 24 bit and ReplayGain globally for Winamp playback under Winamp General Preferences -> Playback - or you can disable in_mad from using the playback configuration on in_mad General preference page. Those files can be deleted as well, as they are development files and not needed to use the plug-in, only the 2 files in the main zip.
The first link on the main page contains the latest DLLs - it should be two files only, in_mad.dll and in_mad.ini - just copy these to the Winamp plugin folder.Most DSP plug-ins only support 16 bit resolution and are tuned for that, so I'd leave it at 16 bit. I don't know if DFX Audio Enhancer would support higher.Cheers for all feedback - and I'll try to fix the bugs that come up .
One important factor contributing to the exceptional sound quality is the fact that DFX performs all audio processing with 32-bit floating point precision, yielding truly professional audio quality. Since Internet audio playback systems currently only support 16-bit audio playback, as a final processing step DFX carefully re-dithers the audio signal to the final 16-bit resolution using Power Technology's proprietary high quality dithering technology. Re-dithering allows a dynamic range in the playback signal that actually exceeds the theoretical limit of a 16-bit playback system.
I noticed that In_mad stores its configurations in the registry. I use in_mad in a portable version of a player I use. Is it possible to make in_mad save its configuration settings inside INI file rather than registry.
Has anyone else noticed 'stuttering' with the latest version (0.2.0.14) ? I'm on XP, Winamp 5.52, out_asio (v0.67 SSE2), and E-MU 0404 card. Since switching from your older in_mad plugin to your newer one, I notice that through songs, the music will occasionally stutter / stop. I'm quite sure it's not my computer (quad core), etc. I can play the same song with your old plugin and it works fine, then play it again with your newer v2 plugin and there is stuttering. These are all mp3s. The statistics tab doesn't show any errors either.Any ideas?
@BSOD2600 and Trainwreck56 - are you using the plug-in with the Winamp global playback config enabled? If so - what is your plug-in priority set to? If not - try setting it to both Highest and Normal. Are you using extras like last.fm or audioscrobbler software?
I'll look into a portable configuation, probably a separate INI.
Hi Domin, in what way does it crash when the stream fails - winamp completely stops responding? I've been testing it by playing back then pulling the network cable out and it goes to the next track silently leaving a message in the File Info box as to why it failed.
