last song played
« on: September 05, 2006, 05:54:18 am »
does wincab keep a record of the last song played?

i only ask as I have a few songs amongst my collection that wincab doesnt like (
it will play the song real quick, and then crash out to windows

i have found a couple of the songs, and fixed them by re-encoding them,
but, seeing as i like to put it on random play, a few have still eluded me, as i sometimes miss the corrupt song if i am out of the room  :banghead:

strangely though, the files that i positively identified as "bad", will play in winamp

If you set DebugLevel to at least 1, you should see the last song load action in the jbdebug.log file that gets created.

WinAmp is a bit more robust than the decoder I am using, which is more sensitive to frame errors in badly-encoded MP3 files, and unfortunately there's at least one major ripping tool (can't remember which) which is really bad about frame errors.  I actually used AMP as my decoder at one time, but the DOS version didn't sound very good. It's been a few years, maybe I'll peek at it to see if it's improved.

that works great, and looks like it could be real handy after a party to see what everyone has requested (well, maybe for a laugh anyway :-)

Great!

DebugLevel currently goes as high as 5, but at level 5 a ridiculous amount of detail is logged, like index dumps, mouse cursor changes, etc.
