Problem with mp3-files

Post by evil » Sun May 20, 2018 12:37 am

Hello!

I have problems, playing mp3-files. A Simple "OpenMusic(1,"any.mp3") PlayMusic(1) Does not work anymore.
Even the example "HollyAMP" Does not open any mp3-file.
The mp3-file exists, and all plugins are installed.
The same mp3-file is played with multiview without any problems, so datatypes are installed, correctly, too.

Compiled Executables from older Scripts work correct, too.

But If I compile or execute a script, it is not able to play mp3-music. Error Message: Unsupported format.

I dont remember, that I changed anything on my system.

Could it be a bug in Hollywood 7.1? I never had problems, playing mp3 with hollywood so for.

Best regards!

Strange. Which platform is this? Have you installed the avcodec plugin?

Which OS4 version? Is it a plain version or do you use A-EON's Enhancer software which replaces lots of OS components?

I use the plain OS4 FE installation.

Due to a hd-Crash last days, I now have installed just the OS4 FE itself.

I just tried out Hollywood 7.0 now for testing purpose. Got the same problem with it... as mentioned on a blank os4.1 FE installation.
Of course, AVCodec is installed...

But, before your will invest to much time, let me try some other things out... I bet, the error is in front of the screen.... again.... ;)

Best regards!!

George, who will tell you the next days, if he finds out anything...

Works again... Dont aks me why!!

What did I do?

As told before, I installed Hollywod 7.0, which did not help.

Then I overwrote it again with Hollywood 7.1, which I backed up before.
Then I overwrote libs:Hollywod with the libraries, which I had backed up some days ago (remember, I backed them up, after whe problem appears.)

Suddenly it works again...

I compared the two libs: directorys (before and after overwriting), but found no differences here. All libraries have exactly the same size in both drawers...

Two possible problems: As mentioned before, the problem is in front of the screen, or my Amiga is a beast...

Best regards!

George, who things, the problem is solved now and needs no longer to be investigated in...

Note that very strange things can happen on OS4 because of OS4's new APPDIR: feature. If you ask me, this is a feature straight from hell ;-) That's why I instantly disabled it, here's how: http://forum.hyperion-entertainment.biz ... =14&t=3996
