Software News   Software News : SimplePlay - new OS4 music player
   posted by jahc on 15-Mar-2005 3:18:47 (4091 reads)
This music player enables OS4 users to play the following music and sound
formats:

MOD, IT, S3M, XM, WAV, VOC, OGG


It was written using the Music functions that are built-in to SDL_Mixer (which
is part of Simple Direct Media Layer). There is no function to query the length
of songs, so I have left out a position slider gadget. Sorry about that guys.

This updated v2.0 of SimplePlay has a graphical interface. v1.0 was CLI/shell
based.

Get it from os4depot.net

Great work. Finally i can listen to all IT, XM and S3M files that lies
here on my HD since 1993 and upward. ;)

(Unfortunately when it comes to Modules, there are some incompatibility but i expect
that it will be fixed in some update. (Try listening to some of Fajsers modules for example) )

Anyway, still great work.

@lovely

It's MUI and it's very basic. Shows a playlist, has MUI buttons for volume, playing, pausing, stop, loading playlists, clearing, add files and so on. No fancy graphics. It does what it's supposed to do for a first version imho.

@jahc

Btw, what is up with the sorting?, it sorts the list "live", and when i first clicked
the button i had some 300 modules there. It took about 1 minute to sort.

Now we are just dreaming of some scopes too.

Nice, thanks a lot

Will test it as AWeb's default for playing sound from the net...

Btw, the pause button seems to have the same effect as the stop button for protracker modules. And sound seems quite distorted for some samples when playing protracker modules.

Compare audio with:

and

@Olle

I wonder if it is possible to tap into AHI to create scopes/levelmeters etc directly. A docky showing some nice effects to represent the current audio output perhaps?

@Orgin

Yeah, perhaps that is possible. I did a similar hack with PlaySID where i just
loaded the library (which was already in memory, so i got a pointer to it, then
i found the offsets where audio-processing was done, and stole the parameters
in realtime and created some scopes.

A scope docky would be neat, preferrably with alot of different settings. I mean
for XM's and other multichannel mods, an option would be to mix them into two scopes or
4 scopes.

Good ideas.

Isn't there a port of UADE for OS4?

Judging from a quick Google, it seems to be a mod player of sorts:
Quote:
UADE plays old Amiga tunes through UAE emulation and cloned m68k-assembler Eagleplayer API.

UADE is Open Source compatible with  Free Software definition. UADE is licensed with GNU GPL. This software would not have been possible for us to produce without the great Free Software model which allowed us to make use of years of hard work of the UAE team. Most of the thanks goes to their pioneering work to build the necessary infrastructure, especially Bernd Schmidt, the initiator of UAE project.

The player infrastructure of UADE is built on the ground work of Eagleplayer and Delitracker projects. We want to mention few people from both projects. Jan Blumenthal and Henryk Richter from the Eagleplayer project; Peter Kunath, Frank Riffel and Florian Vorberger from Delitracker project; Those projects formed an infrastructure on which many different people produced reusable external players, thanks to them too. UADE makes these external players reusable on certain UNIX and other platforms.

UADE contains a free (as in freedom) implementation of Eagleplayer and Delitracker API for UNIX variants such as GNU/Linux (Alpha, AMD64 (x86-64), PA-RISC, PPC, Playstation2 and x86), Free/OpenBSD (x86), Solaris (sparc), Digital Alpha UNIX, IRIX (mips), Mac OS X (ppc), and for other OS variants such as MorphOS. It is designed to be run as an XMMS or a BEEP media player input plugin. A cmdline interface also exists.

Yes, some nice visual plugins would be great. I don't suppose MUI could be made to do skins, could it? I've also just found that Simpleplay will play audio tracks directly from CDs after a fashion. It tends to skip a little, but I guess that's to be expected as I assume it wasn't intended for this use.

I have a great idea, hopefully someone will follow it up:

How about a shared skin library? There are so many players now that use either reaction or mui, it would have been better if someone would create a library of functions any user could implement into their own apps/players.
So that anyone could create their own "winamp" skins easily.

I started work on a skin library. It took a series of images (using datatypes) and an xml file describing how they worked.

The program would query the skin library for the value associated with "Volume". It didn't need to know or care how the volume widget was implimented.

It didn't get much further than the planning stage, though, because other projects got my attention.

Time to give it your full attention again?

Very nice. Any chance of adding xfdmaster.library support? Most of my modules are compressed with something-or-other.

Oh, and can you stop it auto-saving the file list and previous directory on exit - that's the sort of thing which really irritates me on Windows.

In order to add scopes or anything like that he'd have to pick through the source code to SDL_mixer. SDL is intended to be a game making set of libraries. It just happens that the sound engine plays several module formats and that is what Jahc used to make this music player.

It's just a simple hack. Not a dedicated piece of software.

Someday when SDL libraries get saved in a set of libraries we'll just use the same libraries for everything instead of having these 500+kbyte monsters floating around.
