BETA PLAYER, new player, BEST Player

Recommended Posts

Sort of....... I installed BetaPlayer 0.093e, that is not a typo "e" it is one of the test versions. I set the buffers to 300KB or lower, and I opened up many .Avi files and they played fine. The only problem is I had to open them with File Manager not directly with BetaPlayer, if I do that it seems to crash by looping in some way. It plays fine however as long as the files are opened through File Manager and the Buffer(s) are set low.

thanks. skin is planed, but there are so many other important features needed. betaplayer's main goal is still video playback and in this matter skin is not that important. but of course in the future i'll try to work on better music player features and skin as well, just can't give any timetable.

So this keeps getting better and better :mrgreen: Offcourse skins aren't that important, but it would be a nice feature to have as pocket mvp has some very nice skins (like the mediaplayer 9 series skin) which really affect the "feel" of the app. But even without skin support, betaplayer just r0X0rzz!!!! :lol:/ :wink:

Hi, I associated BetaPlayer with Mp3's on my MPX 220 and my MP3 ringtones will not ring. Is this a known bug? I had to de-associate for them to work.

picard_beta,

Is there any way to expose some methods to allow us to 'program' or control the player through software? Anybody could then implement any playlist routine they wanted....

picard_beta,

Well, that would be split between 2 needs:

1. Passing info to the player:

start, stop, pause, seek forward/reverse, next, previouse, playlist, etc.

2. Getting info from the player:

song title, id tags, time code, frequency info for displaying graphic spectrum

On the smartphone, Microsoft has not published any info on how to talk to, or get any info back from WMP 10. But in order to add decent playlist functionality, access to the player is needed.

What do you think? Is there a way to expose methods through a dll?

picard,

is there any way that you could get your player to play audible files (www.audible.com). i used to be a subscriber to audible so i have all these audible books and i would like to use my smartphone to listen to them. i petitioned audible, but they are not interested. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

aloha,

HI

For curiosity I've been searching the web for a SRS WOW plugin for smartphone, since it greatly improved my 3d sound and bass effect in Winamp and WMplayer in my PC, since I have old speakers lacking surround, this plugin emulates a 3d surround effect with truebass, something I never achieved before with any other equalizer or plugin, it even worked with headphones.

So I thought it would be great to have something similar for smartphones (specifically the MX200), since the sound lacks quality and bass.

Searching the web, I stumbled accross these pages:

http://www.extensionmedia.com/dsp/datasheet.php?ds=51

http://www.thenoisereport.com/article160.html

anouncing the avaibility back in March of this year, of this product for smartphones, including MS mobile 2003.

So my question is, would there be any posibility to include this plugin in betaplayer or any other smartphone player???

thnx for any answers

not likely as betaplayer plugin because it's not open-source, but from what i understand the announced drivers are low level, so any program outputing audio will use them. but are you refering to mpx200 smartphone? because the omap cpu used in it doesn't have dsp part so i guess i wouldn't work.

but i will check the open-source gsplayer. it has some kind of bass boost effect.

OK , thank you very much for your quick answer picard

though a bit disappointed about the mpx200 :lol: , I hope you find some way to squeeze some more bass out of it.

This alot better than pockettv? Cause thats all i got on my phone right now. I want high quality movies though, i have a 1gb ultra II card in my e200, so i have lots of space :)

What program is the best to rip into a divx formate? im kinda new to divx. Currently i use TMPGEnc to convert to avi, but its quality seems fairly limited. Suggestions?

try pocketdivx encoder or virtual dub (but you have to install divx codec if you use this).

PocketDivXEncoder does not need any codec's installed to work (amazing!!)

I tried it on a brand new Win98 test machine, downloaded a DivX file tried to play with Windows Media player (no good) ran pocketdivxencoder and converted to XVid format (still wont play in Media player) but if I click on Play an Encoded file I can watch the film and when I send the file to my phone it plays as well :)

BetaPlayer and PocketDivXEncoder combination rock :( :( :(

yes of course. what i meant was virtual dub needs the codec for divx. pocketdivx can be used alone. however, i prefer virtualdub compared to pocketdivx encoder.

hi evry1... just wondering.. where can i get this program from....the file in http://betaplayer.corecodec.org seem to be corrupt.. can someone please post the cab here...

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

probably you downloaded the html page of the download page which should come after you click the filename on the filelist page.

never the less here is a backup site for downloading:
