Windows Media Player Plus! - Various enhancements for WMP

That limit applies to the number of songs shown in the current view of the library. So if the current view consists of more than 500 songs (e.g. when selecting the Music category), the disc numbers won't be shown. As long as you don't have a multi-disc album of more than 500 songs, you probably won't even notice this limit.

Small feature request - Add an option to add the tag "CONDUCTOR" in the "Customize Navigation Pane" dialog box (which can be brought up by right clicking on the navigation pane) so I can see a list of conductors and search within and stuff like that. I hope this is possible

P.S. Thank you for all the work. This plug-in is freaking awesome!

Thank you for the feature request, but unfortunately, such a thing currently isn't possible. WMP doesn't provide any way for plug-ins to change the contents of the Navigation or Details pane.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Ah what a bummer
I have kinda found a solution though. I mean it is nowhere close to what I wanted but it works
In the "Music" view (like artist view, album view etc), typing conductor:NAME (replace NAME with the conductor's name) shows all the titles/songs/compositions of that conductor. It is not a "clean" or "smooth" (lol) process but it works. Do tell me if you know something better

So I have another request.
Is it possible to increase the amount of information provided under "Play" tab (Play-Burn-Sync) for the currently playing item (see attached file) ?
Currently it only displays title, rating, album and album artist. It would be great if more info can be displayed there

That's not possible either unfortunately. WMP is very limited in what it allows plug-ins to do.

I've just installed W10 and the Disc option I mentioned no longer works. Any ideas? :(
EDIT: Nvm I had to re-add the library. STUPID WMP!

I don't know if this problem even pertains to this plug-in, but I'll ask anyway

So lately, rating songs in WMP are not being reflected back to the original file in windows explorer. I tried "Tools > Apply media information changes" but it is still not working. Also, full access is given in properties.

Can anyone help me out here ? How do I fix this ?

Tools - Options - Library - Maintain my star ratings as global ratings in files (press Ctrl+M if you don't see the Tools menu).

Dear Tim,
I really like your WMP Plus plugin. Unfortunately after installed Windows 10, the restore last playlist and position not works. Can you fix this please?
Thanks!

Hi, are you using the latest version of WMP Plus, version 2.8?

What's your exact Windows 10 version and build number? (press Win+R, type winver, Enter)

What exactly happens when you try the 'restore media' feature? Does anything get restored at all? Are you sure that everything is enabled in Restore Media at Startup in the plug-in's settings?

What's the file type of the music or video file that should be restored?

Any chance of getting a 64-bit release of this awesome plugin?

the 32-bit media player is struggling to play HEVC 4k videos via codecs so in a year or two it will be obsolete.

I would support a 64-bit release in any way I can (am a developer).

No, there are no plans for a 64-bit release. I have little free time left to work on the plug-in, and I prefer to spend it on polishing current features and working on new features.

It seems striking to me if playback of a video would require *that* much memory, even if the video is 4K.

Don't forget 64 bit also has many more registers available to it. It's also a requirement for AVX.

that is unfortunate. It could be that the LAV filter's x64 codec has been worked on more than the 32-bit variant. Either way there is a clear performance drop with 4k HEVC when played on the 32-bit wmp

Hi,
Yes, I use the 2.8 version. Tried to reinstall but still not works the restore media feature.
Windows 10 version: 1607 (14393.693)
Yes all options enabled. Nothing restored. When I open WMP I see the Media Library and an empty playlist on the right side.
I have mp3 files in my Media Library, but I tried some videos now without success.

I found something: If I save the playlist before close WMP, on next start restores the media and it continuous the last media from the last state. What could be the problem?

Thanks!

In WMP, please go to Tools - Options - Privacy (press Ctrl+M if you don't see the Tools menu). Is the Playlists item near the bottom ticked? If it isn't, tick it and click OK. Does that fix the issue?

The Playlists was not ticked, that's made it working! Thanks!

Announcement: the beta version of Windows Media Player Plus! 2.10 is now available for download here. This is a bugfix release primarily meant to fix a "Windows Media Player is not installed properly and must be reinstalled" error message in recent Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. Additionally, a compatibility issue with Symantec Endpoint Protection software has been fixed.

As this is a beta version, it’s possible that it still contains some bugs. Please let me know if you encounter any problems, so I can fix them for the final release. Thanks!
