FFSoxPlayer released

FFSoX Player is a Winamp (http://www.winamp.com/) plug-in based on the FFmpeg (http://www.ffmpeg.org/) and SoX (http://sox.sourceforge.net/) libraries. Using FFmepg almost all multimedia files may be played, including but by far not restricted to H.264 and VP8. Audiophile sound processing is provided using high quality 32 bit SoX algorithms and dithering.

FFSoX Player turns Winamp into a video player for almost all known formats.

hehe, you made some friend on the hydroponic audio forum, I see

BTW, would you have any idea how to make the winamp2 DSP plugins in ffdshow work in 24int instead of 16int by any chance? It's entirely possible apparently, as both Christian Budde and the coder of the foobar wrapper did it

It's around here: http://ffdshow-tryout.svn.sourceforg.../?pathrev=1928

there's a lot of "int16_t", but changing them to "int24_t" gives static..

Unfortunately not out of the box. It took me about half a year only to scratch at the surface of FFmpeg ...

Recompiled v0.4.2

There where some issues reported with the binaries compiled on a Vista/64 system. I've just uploaded new binaries compiled on a XP/32 system which should do better.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Hi,

I installed the FFSoxPlayer from the .exe file. I didn't install asio. I am able to hear sound but can view no video, do you happen to know what the problem might be?

FFmpeg has "bumped" their DLLs:

  • avformat-52.dll => avformat-53.dll
  • avcore-0.dll dropped

Home: http://in-ffsox.sourceforge.net/
Download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/in-ffsox/files/
What's new?
  • Compatible to the latest (bumped) FFmpeg versions.
For upgrading to full FFmpeg (needed for playback of e.g. MP3, H264 and many other codecs and formats) get the FFmpeg DLLs from the latest shared builds

I'm testing FFSoX player and have some questions. First, is it necessary to install asio? What benefits are there if you install that? I've downloaded the in_ffsox-0.4.6.4-ffmpeg.exe file, do I need to update the ffmpeg dlls? It seems that the installation includes latest versions. Also, how do I get FFSoX player to play any files like DVR-MS, flv, vob, and others? I specified in the file types of FFSoX player for example FLV and winamp wouldn't even play the file at all. I'm really interested in getting this plugin to work with winamp. Also, how do I switch between audio streams if I have a dual stream file like mkv? Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you for giving it a try.

No.

The plugin's focus is on rendering audio as perfect as possible. In using ASIO it is for sure that the audio signal reaches the DAC (sound card) unaltered, i.e. it is exact the same bit pattern as produced by the plugin. If you are using the Winamp's default Direct Sound output the audio signal will most likely be altered by Windows, e.g. re-sampled. This should be avoided, if possible.

You should prefer ASIO if you're going to listen to the audio via your home stereo.

You should of course upgrade. The included version is configured to contain only a very restricted set of codecs and formats.

FFmpeg is improved on a day by day basis. Even if the plugin doesn't change it is a good idea to upgrade FFmpeg from time to time in order to profit from FFmpeg improvments.

Cf. previous question. You shuold upgrade in order to make sure that the codecs/formats are supported by your FFmpeg DLLs. Just specifying file types is not sufficient.

> a dual stream file like mkv?

The plugin does this for you. It chooses the first video stream and the first (stereo/2.0) audio stream.

Version 0.4.6.5 released

What's new?
  • Enables 32 bit float format for decoding e.g. MP3, AC3 and other lossy audio codecs.
  • Enables (and requires) usage of FFmpeg's "swscale-2.dll", i.e. compatible to the latest FFmpeg versions. For upgrading to full FFmpeg (needed for playback of e.g. MP3, H264 and many other codecs and formats) get the FFmpeg DLLs from the latest shared builds at Zeranoe: http://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/win32/shared/.

Thanks for the feedback.

It depends on the container format, e.g. MKV works. I have to admit that I've not fully understood how seeking works in FFmpeg and SoX. Any help is appreciated.

I used this in conjunction with xmplay and actually liking how it sounds, better than foobar2000 imho.

Edit :
I just tried the new 0.4.6.5 (with latest ffmpeg) and it seems to be hotter/more sibilance than 0.4.6.4. Not a good thing imo, I'm rolling back to previous version...
