I wouldn't be posting here if I didn't have the app, now would I!

 

If it played M4A files, then I wouldn't get the following error:

Here's the file in Windows Explorer:

So, if it played M4A files, then the above error wouldn't be happening!

 

That was obviously a stupid question of mine. MusiX plays m4a/aac. I'm guessing it's not AAC format contained in those m4a files OR they are AAC files but the musiX decoder doesn't support it. Do you have more info about how these file were encoded?

 

Also, there should be more information about why they cannot be played in the logfile. If you could send me that, it might be helpful. The logfile is at this location: C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Local\musiX\Log

I know where to find the log, I'm not some novice computer user.

 

Anyways, here:

With an attitude like that you'd get no help from me!

If you're such an expert computer user, I'm going to assume that you've also already thought to open the file in mediainfo to verify that the format contained in that m4a file is actually aac ;)

Harsh!

 

MeetJohnDoe - I second metallithrax statement, if you want help, drop the attitude. 

 

This is a guy making an application in his spare time, he has been incredible with responding to people and their issues. 

No you got it all wrong.

 

People should should stop bothering raphael with issues so he can use his time to finish the new build and address issues later :laugh:

 

 

Speaking seriously, Raphael, your app seems to be a hit, wouldn't letting someone in to help you with issues be helpful in terms of your time management? 2 cents ( I know nothing of coding so excuse me if this comment is way off :laugh: )

LOL :)

 

I'm not sure if I'm ready to let someone in on this project. I might open source it some time in the future, but not sure about it yet.

Do you realise it's almost a year to the day since you posted MusiX on Neowin?

Yes. That would be a good date for some unveiling no? :)

The only time I had problems playing m4a files is when I converted them from 24-bit flac. All my music is converted to m4a/aac and I haven't had any other issues.

No, but you do seem like an ass towards someone who has created an absolutely awesome app and you need help from.

Well said, but personally, I'd remove most of the above comment, starting with the word "towards", and working my way down.

I'd probably add the word "hole" in there somewhere too.

Unbelievable.

Take your meds or ###### off.

Raph is too much of a gentleman to tell you the same.

Hi all,

 

The musiX project has been discontinued. Two days earlier than expected :), you can find my newest player in this thread.

 

Enjoy!

Is it me, or does the main screen of this player look a lot like musiX? The "Thanks" section is an almost copy paste of musiX's. That can't be coincidence. Good thing is, mine looks better :rofl:
