first, thanks stcogoli, great work.
there seems to be a bug in closing down the cdg file at the end of a song. i am playing my files over xbms and when cdg is enabled, if i try to play an mp3 (with or without cdg file) after an mp3 has stopped (with or without cdg file), the xbox hangs.
if i manually stop the mp3 (and/or cdg) before the song ends, it works fine. playlists work fine. only problem is when a song terminates at the end of the playlist or a single song.

Quote:what i meant by that is - the video in the bg would not neccesarily be that of the actual music clipoh i see, that makes more sense :nuts: but i suspect it would be more difficult to implement cause you might need two instances of mplayer (one for sound, one for video) and i'm not sure if that could be easily achieved. or maybe we could somehow hijack the sound output of a single video instance...

sorry for the noob question, but i used xbmc 1.1 and i couldn`t find support for my mic, that comes with my xbox music mixer.
is the mic support still in development?
and what are cdg and kar files?
sure, it`s for karaoke, but what is included in these files?
i have some mpg videos, they are instrumental with lyrics.
are these another karaoke files like cdg/kar?

but i do have another question...
my xbox is connected to a 1080i hd set and xaraoke seems to work well, but the text seems to have a ton of overscan that no other menu system (or plugin has). the text is readable, but it's very large (probably supposed to be very large) but the top/bottom and left/right are clipped and off screen.
anyone else have this issue..? wonder if it's an hd thing...
- stcogoli - 2004-12-02 06:07
i kinda expected the hd display to be screwed cause i dunno exactly how it works and i did not bother trying to get it right since i don't have a hd myself to test it. it's probly simple to fix but would be a pita for me to do...unless somebody wants to donate one... :lookaround:
from my previous post: .cdg is a file containing a graphics stream which can be displayed in sync with any other music file (mp3, wav, etc) whereas .kar contains synthetized midi music with a synchronized plain-text stream. roughly, .cdg and .kar are respectively to music files what the subtitle formats (.idx, .sub) and .srt are to movies. mpg movies can also be used for karaoke but they are not very standard (hard to obtain) and take a lot of space.

well at least you expected it to be screwed... <wink>
sticky (i couldn't my way out of a paper bag, but i'd be happy to test for you...)
- stcogoli - 2004-12-03 05:59
sticky, can you post a screenshot so i can more fully grasp everything that's wrong with the display. maybe the overscan problem can just be solved by readjusting it in the video setings?

was just starting to test yesterdays build 12-9-2004 and there looks to be a conflict between the visualization and the cd+g display. smooth scrolling of the cd+g is now gone and both the cd+g display and the visualization is very jumpy on the screen. i tried this with the g-force vis and the fountain vis. has anyone else seen this yet?

i agree, it's extremely jumpy. and the initial graphics (the studio's logo) take a while to render, like the video memory is overloaded or something.

stocoli,youre great for implenting this!
but i have the same problems like the guys above whit the latest builds.
