I'm a Winamp user and gave this version of the plugin a try. I noticed that when using correction files, even after playback has stopped/moved on to the next song, there's still an open handle left for the .wvc file of a .wv that's played for the first time in that session and have to restart Winamp to free it. On the other hand, if I play it first without the correction file, then again using it, this does not happen, but the playback is still reported as lossy (although the correction file is used and it's actually in lossless mode).LE: I see there are some open handles left for .wv files as well sometimes. And the tags created through Winamp are not read until the restart of Winamp? Also, with the Add file(s) to playlist dialogue from the playlist I do have "WavPack File (*.WV)" but if I select "All supported types" .wv files are filtered out. But this may be Winamp issue(s) or something wrong with my install (I'm currently using Winamp v5.53).
And I'd also like to make a feature request, mostly for the Winamp plugin, but might prove useful for unpacking in general - the possibility to store the correction files in a different folder than the .wv file. I'd love this because I'd like to transcode my collection to hybrid mode, keeping the correction files on the server back at home, available through samba when needed, while the songs themselves on the laptop hdd so I can play them anywhere and everywhere and get the benefit of smaller files with unperceivable quality loss to the regular human ear that just needs some music while working.
Just FYI, Winamp plugin started to keep additional opened handles in one of last alfa versions, after you improved performance of Media library refresh.But I'm personally don't care about this issue
I have added the winamp transcoding API to the WavPack plugin, so now format conversion, CD burning, and Replaygain calculations all work with WavPack files. Also, I added the functions to allow winamp (and other plugins) to write metadata text information to WavPack files. I'm not sure exactly what this buys (other than the ability to write calculated Replaygain info, which is how I tested it) but I'm sure there are plugins that do this.Note that this does not allow editing the metadata tags directly from winamp (alt+3) unless there's a plugin that implements this through that API.Here are the changes (relative to version 2.4) with the newest in bold: added transcoding API (allows CD burning, format conversion, Replaygain calc) added API for writing metadata from winamp Unicode support for info box and media library added option to pass multichannel audio to output added option to pass all audio as 16-bit (for better compatibility) added option to output 24-bit audio when ReplayGain is active changed high-resolution output from 32-bit to 24-bit (allows winamp EQ to work, and probably other things) fixed bug that caused the seek bar to sometimes vacillate when moved performance enhancement from 4.41 added genre display to info boxdownloadThanks... Davidedit: Latest version is now alpha8; link above has been updated (read below for additional features). This version is now very stable.
Alpha 8 doesn't save metadata files.
