Why can't i play music on my mIRC? /splay -p <Map> doesn't works, because i get this error message whole the time:

* /splay: unable to play 'C:\Documents and Settings\liedjes\Robin Beck - First Time.mp3' (line 49, script8.ini)

It's not the song and it's not the script. Can someone help?

My guess is you need to put the directory path in quotes ("..."), but yes, please show the line mentioned.

Line 49:

splay -p $qt($findfile($readini(tehmp.ini,Directory,Playlist1),$+(*,$did(16).seltext,.mp3),1,))

But, it's not the script, all /splay's aren't working.

EDIT:

My operating system is XP. I've also used /splay alot on my laptop, it's working fine there.

Does using short filename work?
Code:
 splay -p $findfile($readini(tehmp.ini,Directory,Playlist1),$+(*,$did(16).seltext,.mp3),1).shortfn

When Sound is off, if you try to /splay a file, mIRC doesn't give an error, it just not play the file.

I know some others person who are able to reproduce this error when playing a file.

It isn't an error, it's a design feature. I believe it was requested at some point.

Why mIRC return an error ?
If his file can be played with another program, (and if his file exists), why mIRC can't read it ?

As mentioned, turn on sounds in mIRC's options to be able to use /splay.

Obviously sounds are enabled or he wouldn't get the error message.

This has happened to me in the past when I've tried to play a file with a format that doesn't match the extension, ie. an mp3 file with a .wma extension. When playing the same file in windows media player it complained about the file not matching the format and asked if I wanted to play it anyway.

.wma files are working. .mp3 files aren't.

Somebody knows what i could do? smile

PS: It's just the /splay not the script.

Just an idea... does mIRC "recognize" the file(s) in question as mp3 files?
You can test this with e.g.; //echo -a $sound($qt(filename.here)).version
...The output should be like "MPEG 1.0 Layer 3"

Hum, did you try a different file location? (..thinking of restricted file access according to user account or other settings)
Try e.g. your $mircdir and another drive / partition of that PC.

It looks like Edie is nuts, but he isn't. I made a player for mirc which works perfectly for me and lots of other people. Today I got the question: "Your player only plays wma and not mp3". I asked this person to send me this piece of music and at my pc it is being played very well. I let her change the filename (replace spaces by underscores), put the file at another location, etc. but nothing helped. I changed filenames myself and relocated them and got no errors. She uses xp too like Edie. And she has mirc 6.17. I'm stunned ....

* /splay: unable to play 'H:\Shared\02 Beauty And The Beast.mp3' (line 1015, rb-CoolPlayer.mrc)

Why????
