Hi, I don't know if this is a bug, but when I use a program such as WinAmp to get my songs off my CDs and convert to *.mp3 files. Some of the songs when I try to use /splay do not work. Is mIRC not compatiable with *.mp3 convernted files or such or maybe K-Haled should improve /splay by alot to work with almost every media file like WinAmp.
-
Anyone wanna help ;(

Have you made sure the filename is enclosed in quotations? like /splay -p "c:\mymp3.mp3" ?

are there multiple spaces in the filename? if so, the following happens (~ equals a space since multispaces are stripped here too):

hello~~there.mp3 (tries to get played by mirc)
hello~there.mp3 (is what mirc tries to play cause of multispace-stripping but the file does NOT exist cause it is really a multispaced file)

I had that same issue till I found the dual spaces in a file and removed the excess spaces

at first try $shortfn(path) with the /splay alias

if this doesn't work - try to play the file in Windows Media Player, if this doesn't work mIRC can't play it

I was wondering - Can mIRC only handle 128Kbps Bitrate Files? Becuase the files I am using are 256K+ does this matter?

I doubt that should matter tho I'll admit ignorance on that

I've converted most of my CDs to MP3 format and they all work with /splay. As for the bitrate, I think mIRC has had problems with files 256Kbps+ in the past. I normally stick with 128-192Kbps and I've never had any issues playing them.

Nope, mIRC can indeed play 256(+)kbps mp3 files.
