Default [xmms-musepack] decodeStream is unable to open http://...

Hi,

I got a problem playing mpc files via http.
Background: I wrote a web application to have access to my music at work. Everything works flawlessly
- with Windows (i.e. WinAmp)
- with Linux (i.e. Amarok)

but when xmms with musepack-plugin is told to play an mpc file via .m3u file, it says:
Code:
[xmms-musepack] decodeStream is unable to open http://example.com/example.mpc
Local playback of mpc files works fine with xmms.

What I've tried so far:
Setting mimetype in apache (audio/x-musepack mpc) - no difference
Downgrading to older versions
Googling, googling, googling

An example m3u looks like this:
Code:
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:145, example song
http://example.com/example.mpc
My System:
Debian testing
xmms 1:1.2.10+20061101-1 (older versions don't work as well)
xmms-musepack 1.2.1-0rarewares1 (older versions don't work as well)

I just don't get it - every other player i tried works, but as i want to use xmms-crossfader amarok is no alternative for me.

Does anybody have an idea?

Thnx, jeremia

i've not tried to do that with xmms, but the CLI decoder, mppdec, is able to play http streams.

install musepack-decoder from rarewares/debian and execute 'mppdec http://example.com/example.mpc'


later

Thanx for answering, xmixahlx,

as I've written above, it is not a problem of playing it back at all - amarok for example has no problem doing that. It seems to be a specific problem with the xmms-musepack plugin.

Xmms-musepack's latest version at rarewares is only two weeks old and - correct me if i'm wrong - compiled by you personally!? Do you think recompiling would help? I'm not really into compiling source code myself. but as xmms-musepack has a dependency on libmpcdec3 i thought that xmms-musepack uses the same routines as mppdec!?

- mppdec does not help me as only some of my files are mpc files - most of them are of course mp3 - therefore the player used has to be able to play back both.

- xmms is the only linux player (i know of) that supports crossfading between tracks (amarok crossfading never worked for me and is not as configurable as xmms-crossfade).

thanx for thinking again about my problem,

jeremia

ALL-CLEAR:

I have just managed to install WinAmp using Wine. Best alternative i could think of - and i'm happy at last: crossfading works, compressors work...

Thanx anyway,
jeremia

You should really try foobar2000. It's programmed by people who know
how to write proper apps. The latest beta will allow you to seek quickly in
all MPC files - http://www.foobar2000.org/beta/index.html
