digitalmars.D.announce - boxen - a media player written in D (preview)

Hi!

I have hacked together a preview version of the media player I'm working on. 
It's developing rather nicely and last weekend I was able to tie together a 
lot of loose ends. The project is in a presentable state for the first time 
now, so I wanted to just release a quick preview for the D community before 
starting the next round of refactoring.

Unfortunately it's currently Windows only and you need an audio interface 
with ASIO for it. If you like to try it out please fell free to download. 
There's also a PDF in the archive with some more information.

I would be glad if you guys could have a look at it and tell me what you 
think. If you are affiliated with one of the open source projects I use 
(Cairo, FFmpeg) please forgive me that I haven't yet put in the proper 
attribution. I'm planning on making the first "official" release after the 
next round of refactoring, and I will put in the relevant notices then.

Regards,
Mike

It requires zlib1.dll (not in the package). Blue screened my xp sp2 twice. Something audio driver related. Even when not crashing it is not playing anything I drop on it.

Oh my. Looks like it's still in a lot worse shape than I thought. May I ask what audio interface you're using? If you've got some time to spare ... it would be great if you could start it using boxen -magic:useDummyAudio and see if it plays anything then. Thanks for trying, Mike

I've borrowed a couple of audio devices and I'm testing right now, and I got the bluescreen too. Being aware of the problem is halfway there to fixing it :)
