PSPRadio Version 0.2b is out!

I just submitted the new ver to psp-hacks.com and psp-updates.com! Expect a link soon on these sites.
gbazone- has been nice enough to provide hosting for the file also! Get it here.
wraggster- provides this link:
http://psp-news.dcemu.co.uk/pspradio.shtml

This new version has:
-Corrected problem where the app froze when exiting while paused/stopped.
(was caused because threads where suspended/asleep)
-Now can play lower samplerate streams (22K, 11K, etc) let me know well this works, since I only tried it with one at 22KHz.
-Integrated socket header files from NetBSD.
-Socket recv and send timeout set to 3 seconds.
-Corrected problems with httpget that would cause the decoding thread to freeze if the connection failed.
-Preliminary playlist support (version 1). Use the shoulder buttons L (prev) and R (next) to navigate the list.
** This is still work in progress ** Don't expect this version to be perfect, it's just an enhanced 0.1 **

I'm gonna start working on metadata support. This will hopefully solve the problems with the new shoutcast servers.

Note: Some users are reporting some problems with this release. I'm looking into it right now. I'll post a newer version when the issues get corrected. Still, feel free to try this version, and let me know what works, what doesn't. A test procedure for how to recreate the problems would be appreciated as well.
halfast reports that if there's files in the playlist file that don't exist on the ms, then the app will crash.
So, make sure you edit the playlist and only point to real files.
I don't believe the problem happens with URLs necesarily.. Although it may get stuck if it doesn't like a particular URL..
Well, I'll keep working on it, and hopefully I'll have an updated version out soon (Sometime this weekend).

    halfast: It's all in the example
    ie.: in the PSPRadio.cfg
    [MUSIC]
    PLAYLIST=example.pls;

    Then, example.pls (there's one included) looks like this:
    "
    ms0:/somedir/somefile.mp3
    ms0:/somedir/otherfile.mp3
    http://someurl
    ...
    "

    Got my first Crash. if it does not find the MP3 file it will reboot the PSP Make sure you rem out the lines that do not point to a real file

    Actually if the file is in the playlist rem'ing it out does nothing make sure the playlist points to real locations or files.mp3's or it may lock up and reboot.

    More reports to come as i play more Thanks again :)

    halfast: Right now I only support multiples of 11K for the sample rate (11, 22, 44); that's why 24 won't work still. Thanks for the report, though.

    gbazone: Thanks! If you'll let me hotlink from this blog, I'll gladly accept your offer :)

    I will be beating this up more this weekend Again Thanks much.

    Great work on this release by the way.

    Awesome program and I know the second I get this to work i'll have a great little thing on my hands (like i said earlier, it'll bring psp music to the next level)...but...I'm having problems with connecting to the default music servers on the program. I'm connected successfully with my static setup (it shows the ip in the bottom right perfectly), but i'm stuck on opening. Is anyone else getting this same problem?

    Thanks, gbazone!!!

    I tried v0.2b, without success. I rem'd out the line in the .cfg relating to the playlist, and instead just stuck the same FILE= line in as I put in my working v0.1a cfg file... The app crashed and rebooted my PSP on numerous occasions. I tried just copying the folders across AND renaming the folders to get rid of the corrupt icon (which worked fine on v0.1a), neither made any difference.

    Keep up the good work!

    Cheers

    Josh

    Kyle yes, this is a problem quite a few of us seem to be experiencing. No one seems to know the cause of this just yet though....

    I guess just wait for later buidls of this great application.

    Everything works pefectly here... Is it possible to add a sleep timer feature that shuts off the psp in 30 minutes or so? (if it's turned on of course) I want to listen to shoutcast while im going to sleep but I dont want to leave my psp on all night every night. The auto-sleep thing that the PSP comes with can only go up to 15 minutes.. and thats not long enough.

     
  • At 3:25 PM, Blogger raf said…

    yatahaze: The sleep timer is definitely doable. Remind me to add this in the future!.
