    Lick's Media Player NexGen RC-2

    Final release's almost there








    Developer Lucas has released a release candidate build of LMP-ng, getting a step closer to a stable build.

    Changelog:


    Release candidate 1:



    This is mainly a bugfix release. I've fixed most bugs reported here (every one I could reproduce). MP3 playback should be much better now.


    I've changed the default to NOT read ID3 tags. There's some problems in the code that may cause instability. If you really want that feature, you can start the program holding A and it will be enabled, but in case you run into problems, just try disabling ID3.


    One new feature, new seekbar (just test to see). Now the default is to change volume on NowPlaying screen, so you have to press WHEEL_CENTER or RIGHT to get to the seekbar.


    Release candidate 2:

    Some small bugs fixed, some minor tweaks and optimizations. I've played for several hours, with no problems, tested mp3, ogg, flac and all were fine. Tested on R4 (dldi) and M3 SD (no dldi).

    Does this support aac playback (m4a's). If not I think that would be a great addition. At the moment Moonshell and DS Organize try to support it but it doesn't work too well for me.

    That’s good news, I hope he comes out with new skins. Because that Ipod one is the lamest.

    Gambia, The
    i don't know what i'm doing wrong :(

    i own a M3 Mini SD with a Kingston 1GB card.
    if i try the lmp without dldi it gets stuck on searching files, and if i use dldi it either doesn't change anything (with the original M3patch) or the fatlib doesn't want to get initiated (with the alternative M3patch).

    any ideas? or should i provide some more specific info? (if yes tell me what)

    Huh, works fine on my R4. Maybe your directory structure is too big?
    Try putting only some music files and the binaries on the card and try again. If the problem won't repeat itself, it must be a bug.

    The previous version of this works just fine...

    After trying this version without any success, I ended up restoring the previous BETA .nds file (DLDI patched) right on-top of the RC-2 (DLDI patched), and everything works again... i think there may be slight issues with this version.

    R4 w/SanDisk 2GB, FAT32. I think there is about 80mb free on the card, so that's not likely the problem. 2 Videos in the "video" dir, 16 mp3s in the "music" dir and several nds files are in their own sub dirs

    Does this play movies? DPG only I'd suspect if it does.

    RC-2 did not work for me on the R4. It was frozen at the menu screen. In the beta release use the R and L buttons to control the volume.

    There is: during playback, hit the Left shoulder to diminish the volume, Right one to increase it.
