2.4.0: a bit delayed, but released

2.4.0 release was delayed a bit, but here it is. This release adds custom main window layout, UTF-8 (that wasn't as easy as I thought and is not perfect), WMA, executing external commands, cache for tags, and more. The full list of changes is here.


When I start mocp, I get: "Plugin uses different API version". And I can't see my cyrillic files (only #). I use librcc-0.2.3 and librcd-0.1.8, "UseRCC = yes".
moc-2.3.3 with librcc-patch work well.

I haven't tested it much, I'll look at it when I have more free time.

Ok, but maybe you can tell me what versions of this lib's do you use?

In fact it never really worked for me, someone who is really use it can try fixing.

Damian Pietras - MOC developer

Ok, thanks. I think this may help: tags are displayed almost normally, i.e. only names of files are not displayed correct, maybe it is possible because of exception from config FileSystemIconv option (if was not mistaken).

RCC is not used for file names, but it'll be dixed in the next release.

I cannot find a list of extensions supported even with a common file extensions search on major search engines , can you provide a list?


UTF-8 support is really great!

It can display Czech or Swedish tags in my OGG files just fine (I think they are UTF-8 encoded).

It even displays Japanese filenames just OK (UTF-8 filesystem), but Shift-JIS encoded ID3 tags are no-no (it can't just identify the encoding as S-JIS, I suppose). :(

Any recommendation?

Try setting ID3v1TagsEncoding option to SHIFT-JIS.

Damian Pietras - MOC developer

ID3v1TagsEncoding = SHIFT-JIS in my .moc/config

Still no luck.

BTW, this librcc is (not) included with moc source? (I can't find it in Gentoo Portage)

It's not included. I don't know if it would work with japanese language.

Aaah, now it works. I think I didn't kill the server, only client -- that's why the settings didn't have any effect.

Just a small thing - mocp doesn't show .mp4 files in the listing (which can be audio-only files as well)

By the way, is seeking possible with ffmpeg?

I'll add mp4 extension, thanks.
Seeking is not possible with FFmpeg, I think it's an FFmpeg bug, it crashes MOC, so this code is disabled.

Damian Pietras - MOC developer

Seeking within the limitations of the FFmpeg libraries has been
implemented and committed to SVN as r2406.
