  • [QUOTE=ZeekyHBomb;30798023]Since many people seem to get unresponsive applications, are you buffering the whole song? Perhaps you could use stream-based content instead; SFML provides support for that via sf::SoundStream.[/QUOTE] I'm not using SFML for audio anymore. I'm going to have to read up on the new audio library about that.
  • I really want this so it can just take input from any output device, so it would work in any music player. You should not need to worry about getting sound from other programs, since you are not going to be listening to something else while using this kind of thing anyways. [editline]30th June 2011[/editline] Also, pretty much all of my MP3s are apparently corrupt.
  • SEMV seems to enjoy telling me that any and all MP3s I try to use are corrupt/missing in spite of me putting the correct filepath etc. in settings. This saddens me :frown:
  • [QUOTE=GhostSonic;30794471][IMG]http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/3074/crashorfreeze.png[/IMG] Uh, crash.[/QUOTE] Came back from eating dinner and was over your post. Thought the image was a real error and tried exiting out of it. :v:
  • [QUOTE=lunarwalrus;30819428]Mp3s working for me.[/QUOTE] Some do, some don't. No idea why.
  • [QUOTE=ShaRose;30821206]Some do, some don't. No idea why.[/QUOTE] I've had this issue with my programs before...when trying to convert MP3s to wav programatically, some would not work.
  • [QUOTE=snergwerf;30832598]I've had this issue with my programs before...when trying to convert MP3s to wav programatically, some would not work.[/QUOTE] Yeah, but all other programs work with them.
  • [QUOTE=ShaRose;30821206]Some do, some don't. No idea why.[/QUOTE] not a single song out of my entire Jefferson Airplane collection works, and none of the covers of Jefferson Airplane songs I have work either. Anything with Jefferson Airplane in the data just doesn't work for me
  • What is it that makes it lag/need high resources soo much? Also dont mind me being cheeky but, is this going to go open source? :P
  • Now I can see the music, without being high! Seriously though, this is the best visualizer that I've seen. The only downside is that it's quite resource heavy. But you'll probably fix that soon :buddy:
  • Kind of on a programming break for a bit, but I might get back onto it on monday. The shaders use a lot of the GPUs processor, since it has to make a glow for every single pixel. I have an idea to fix it, making it much faster. I am going to add a some GUI shit such as volume and next/prev song, shuffle, etc... Since I hate that you have to enter song directories and filenames every time you want to change the song. Also for the "Half my songs aren't loading!" issue that really I never had myself, but perhaps making it streaming will fix the issue. And thanks to everyone for the feedback! :D
  • [QUOTE=Richy19;30848625]Also dont mind me being cheeky but, is this going to go open source? :P[/QUOTE] I do enjoy to share my code with everyone most times, but I won't count on it anytime soon, sorry. :frown: Also, audio is now streaming and performance issues should be no problem for the next update. [editline]3rd July 2011[/editline] Oh hey, a new version! [QUOTE=ief014;30732621] [b]Latest version:[/b] Download this shit right here: [url]http://www.iefhost.com/dl/semv/semv1.2.rar[/url] :love: [/QUOTE] + Audio streaming instead, it shouldn't take so long to load a song now. + Edit motion blurring with settings.cfg + Glow scaling to help reduce lag fairly significantly (Read the readme/settings.cfg) + Enable/Disable glow in settings.
  • I didn't have any of the problems anyone was having. Everything is smooth and not laggy at all. All my songs work too.
  • Without half scaling I used to get like 15 FPS in 1440x900 fullscreen and now I'm getting around 120 FPS with it :O Edit: [quote][img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/nope22.png[/img][/quote] It makes a good background
  • that gives me an idea, how difficult would it be to implement something like VLC's direct3D desktop mode?
  • Streaming does work better, but it's strange. Some of my songs still don't work, and I found out it's not just mp3. Some flac songs have failed, and even when I converted one to wav it also crashed.

I don't have this issue myself, I've tried so many different songs (long and short, etc) but they all work fine for me, I don't know how to fix this issue. :/

I click it and nothing happens.[/del] The direct3d mode works, but it comes over my desktop icons and whatnot, so it's not really awesome. VLC has this directx wallpaper mode, but that doesn't work for me.

  • I still really want to see what it would look like with [url=http://soundcloud.com/essential-chip/henry-homesweet-essential-chip-mix-2010]this[/url]. It's probably just sheer length on why that one is crashing it though.
  • Great work! Please get the GUI done soon, I'd love to use this as my default media player. Not to mention how awesome Portal 2's "You will be perfect" is on it. (A quick way to do it might be to have a separate program that can edit the settings.cfg via a GUI and reloads the MusicVisualizer.exe each time it changes.) Also an option for looping would be awesome.
  • Please add support for web streams. Then I could hook it up to foobar2000 or listen to Shoutpunch.
  • [QUOTE=Hypershadsy;30932450]Please add support for web streams. Then I could hook it up to foobar2000 or listen to Shoutpunch.[/QUOTE] I'll probably release a separate version that handles your audio output instead of mp3s and oggs and junk. You'll be able to play your own music fast or even talk to your computer! Or just throw your mic across the room trying to get a big bang out of the visualizer. I might release it before I release the GUI version (which is a WIP!)
  • It'd be nice if my mp3 songs actually worked and didn't crash the program. [img]http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/1948/sssssdi.png[/img]
