Yes, X Media is now freeware. It was shareware long before FMOD
was added. FMOD wasn’t added till version 2.5.

Download it and take a look 😀

Feel free to make skins for it and submit them
I could use a new splash screen (my artistic abilities suck :( )

Let me know what you think.

Thanks! It works like a charm now… the only thing is, I can’t seem to move the equalizer and playlist around (they’re stuck attached to the main window no matter what I do). I wanted to rearrange the windows the same way I had set up my Winamp windows, but it doesn’t work well if the windows don’t move…

By the way, you should include the skin from 1.0 in the new version–I really liked that skin (better than the MetalMix one).

[b:1tq5bqir]edit[0][/b:1tq5bqir] I forgot one other thing… there’s no taskbar icon for XMP. When the player is not minimized, there should be a taskbar icon. Otherwise, once I switch to another app, I can’t get XMP back without double-clicking the tray icon (which is annoying because it brings up the volume control every time)

[b:1tq5bqir]edit[1][/b:1tq5bqir] I just noticed another minor bug. When I drag the volume control, the numbers move in the opposite direction they’re supposed to. I notice the slider ranges from 0 to 4000, but the funny thing is, it says 4000 when the volume is all the way down, and 0 when it’s all the way up. How odd…

Ok, to move the forms all you have to do is open the main menu
by right clicking on the form or by clicking on the menu buttons,
then uncheck dock forms. Now you can move them. However
you cannot move all the forms together (This will be added in
a future version). You can lock the forms in there positions
by clicking ‘Lock Forms’.

In visual basic, I cannot hide and unhide the taskbar button
in runtime, thats why there is only the tray icon.

And about the slider, Thats the volume control on the tray icon
right? It’s microsoft for ya. Their slider is backwords, I had to
Subract a whole bunch of numbers and return the abs value.
I tried to turn off the tool tip text, but I couldn’t. Oh well, I’m stuck
with it.

Maybe the next version 3.0 will have the skin you like.

there will be help documents comming soon. But until
then, if you have any more questions, just ask! 😀

The old 1.0 “for laughs” version ran on my computer (I couldn’t move the window though), but 2.7 didn’t, oddly enough. XMP 2.7 showed and hid the splash screen, and then did nothing else. So I figured, “maybe it has a tray icon and Windows XP hid it on me,” but I expanded my tray and there was no XMP icon.

Strange…

Version 3.0 will be really cool!

Here’s a list of some features that will be added

Visualization studio
Auto delete dead files from playlist
Plugin support
Custom docking points(like Winamp). currently docking points are
defined by the skin.
New skin

and many more!

I can’t even wait till I release it!

Feel free to post your suggestions for the upcomming version

This has been a problem in the past. I thought i fixed it though.
It is probably active movie. I removed the ocx from the setup program
to shrink the file size. I figuered every body has it. perhaps i will add
it again and see what happens.

Yes it does have a tray icon.

Eric:

I dowloaded 2.9. Nice. Do you have any plans to include ASIO support? I’ve got a situation where my recording hardware (by Digidesign) doesn’t function well as the default Windows sound device. The way I can access it is ia ASIO.

Thanks!

Wait a minute! You said that 1.0 worked, but 2.7 didn’t?
If 1.0 works then 2.7 should becuase 1.0 uses active movie,
2.7 doesn’t (only for video). Try downloading the update file
or download the whole thing again. If you want, you can
download the Active Movie Tester to see if active movie
is installed properly.

Good luck.

You see, the thing here is: you don’t have to. You can just turn on the taskbar button in the form’s properties, and when Form1.WindowStyle = vbMinimized (perform check in Form_Resize), hide it by doing Form1.Visible = False).

I just tried downloading XMP 2.8 and it still didn’t work. Same problem; it shows the splash screen, then does nothing. Not even a tray icon. Double-clicking the desktop icon multiple times doesn’t help either; it just falls flat on its face again and contributes to my process list even more by adding another useless instance of XMedia.exe that takes up about 6MB of RAM.

That’s another thing too–you should only allow one instance of XMP, or if you allow multiple instances, make it an option that’s off by default. This is how Winamp works.

So what “update file” were you talking about? There was only two downloads on the entire site–XMP 1.0 and XMP 2.8, both full downloads. Where do I get this “update file,” or better yet, where do I get the ActiveMovie tester?

Well, I never really thought about it. I might try, but I don’t have any
hardware that requires ASIO, so testing it would be difficult. I am
currently playing with sound drivers. I’ll give it a try.

Thank you for your input.

Are you trying to record or play music? X Media doesn’t support
recording. Do you have an ASIO device ( i don’t even know what
they are.) and drivers?

I’m looking to play music, not record it. In my searches for ASIO compliant CD/WAVE/MP3, etc., players, there isn’t a lot out there!

Any idea on how to get the basic FMOD player to allow me in and change the output settings? It gives me the initialization error then quits.

Thanks!

OK, I just recently discovered that on one of my 95 machines
The tray icon control wasn’t working. Maybe this has something
to do with it? I’m currently trying to fix it now.

You said you wanted to play a Music CD with ASIO output?
Try this, I updated the ASIO Driver Tester w/ cd Player support

[url:ets4n49h]http://xmedia.sphosting.com/download/ASIO.zip[/url:ets4n49h]

I appriciate this, I can’t test it on my computer. It always gives
my initialization errors. :(
