Seems kinda useless since most MP3 players take up little to no ram usage.
And why would I use this over Foobar? iTunes even?
[QUOTE=TheJoker;35088274]Seems kinda useless since most MP3 players take up little to no ram usage.[/QUOTE] It uses a relatively low amount of ram considering it uses Windows Media Player (wmp.dll) to play and stream music. [QUOTE=Protocol7;35088300]And why would I use this over Foobar? iTunes even?[/QUOTE] Well its integrated with Steam using [URL="http://opensteamworks.org/"]Open Steamworks[/URL], allowing you to use chat and private message commands, record live in-game and lots of other cool features, it's alot more than just an mp3 player. Supported on Windows XP/ME/Vista/7/8 Edit: It was designed as a replacement for outdated programs like hlss/hldj, I'm just trying to promote it lol
The only way I can really see this being helpful is if you don't want to alt tab every time you wanna change a song but even then most people have a mouse and/or keyboard with a next button. Still.. It's pretty cool.
[QUOTE=ta0soft;35088364]It was designed as a replacement for outdated programs like hlss/hldj, I'm just trying to promote it lol[/QUOTE] The point of those programs were to play music over in-game voice chat, not just to play music. Any music player can play music. The GUI is very nice though. Also, where is the source code?

I'll post a link soon.
Is this something that runs integrated into steam or just alongside it?
FLAC suppourt?
[QUOTE=Ehmmett;35088499]Is this something that runs integrated into steam or just alongside it?[/QUOTE] It runs alongside Steam, not integrated to your account in any way. Only integrated in a sense that it responds to chat commands and will support in-game commands soon. [QUOTE=Biotoxsin;35088522]FLAC suppourt?[/QUOTE] It supports all formats supported by Windows Media Player. You may need the WMP flac codec to play flac in Steamp3. I'm not sure if its supported by default.

Any in-game tab support?
Any idea why chrome would think this? [img]http://i.imgur.com/UqpOt.png[/img]
[QUOTE=Ehmmett;35088789]Any idea why chrome would think this? [img]http://i.imgur.com/UqpOt.png[/img][/QUOTE] I think because the setup isn't signed digitally >_< I'll fix it It's clean as a whistle I assure you. Source will be available soon for proof [editline]10th March 2012[/editline] Working on the fix now... [url]http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Signing_an_Uninstaller[/url] [QUOTE=The First 11'er;35088735]Any in-game tab support?[/QUOTE] You can play/record music in-game without alt+tabbing by using the chat and pm commands. But technically you still have to use shift+tab lol, I'm working on a solution for that too.
Wow this is actually a really nice program. Can't wait to see what future updates bring :D
[QUOTE=Ehmmett;35089614]Wow this is actually a really nice program. Can't wait to see what future updates bring :D[/QUOTE] Thanks, Still a few minor bugs but almost everything works like it should lol. I'll be adding more radio stations and 2 new plugins in the next update (blackjack bot and answering machine).
Awesome work dude. Can you use foobar backend fir this instead of wmp ?
[QUOTE=fritzel;35089778]Awesome work dude. Can you use foobar backend fir this instead of wmp ?[/QUOTE] What difference would it make?
[QUOTE=fritzel;35089778]Awesome work dude. Can you use foobar backend fir this instead of wmp ?[/QUOTE] It's possible, but as said above it wouldn't make much of a difference. I almost used Fmod or DirectSound for the backend but wmp.dll is shipped with all versions of Windows so I figured it was best.
Nice... Can this plau music ingame? can i replace hldj for this? Can you tell me how to get Flac supported? ~YEAR command returns 2008 Also how can i make it play tho steam voice chat?
So after screwing around with it for a bit... The only thing I can really suggest atm is the ability to load a playlist. It gets rather annoying have to go through all my music (over 10k songs) and look for songs.

Nice work, but I would say its kinda useless until you made it accessible from the steam overlay. I'm going to download it when you're done with that.

It gets rather annoying have to go through all my music (over 9k songs) and look for songs.[/QUOTE] I agree, multiple playlist support is on the top of the todo list, I just don't know if I want to use .pls/.m3u or my own xml format. I also want to add support for remote playlists. I'm open to other suggestions too, Steamp3 is still a work in progress [editline]11th March 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=SataniX;35090522]For those careful people: [url]http://vscan.novirusthanks.org/analysis/59ae77379d824af5689ab0b1251057d9/c3RlYW1wM3NldHVwLTEtMC04MS1leGU=/[/url][/QUOTE] Thanks, I was too lazy to do that myself :P
Ok this is pretty cool, I especially like the function that tells me what youtube videos people are linking without having to click on them. Can't work out how to use the commands though, probably being dense but mind giving a quick explanation?

[QUOTE=ta0soft;35094823]Lol there is no trojan, who even uses trojans any more[/QUOTE] Oh not many, just the people looking to lure idiots into letting their computer be part of a botnet or steal their online banking details.
[QUOTE=reverno;35091393]Ok this is pretty cool, I especially like the function that tells me what youtube videos people are linking without having to click on them. Can't work out how to use the commands though, probably being dense but mind giving a quick explanation?[/QUOTE] Sure :D Just type any of the commands in a chat or private message window (lobby support coming soon). Commands like play {SearchTerm} and weather {ZipCode} require a second parameter. For example, type "weather denver" to scroll local weather for Denver or "r rock" to play a random song from the Rock genre. Steamp3 filters results based on the ID3 tag and the file URL to make it easy to find your music. Steamp3 also has global commands that can be triggered by anyone, like the youtube command. You can disable global commands from the Settings tab.

I'm uploading the source to github now, I have nothing to hide
Yup got all the commands working. So how do we play music over voice chat in game or in steam calls? Nice program, works great for me and I don't have reason to use anything else.
