Re: X1000 and X5000 in Fractal Cases
Not too shy to talk

@rjd324

X5000 has a little faster clock speed and faster memory. X5000 also has fewer ports and slots.

X1000 has a little slower clock speed and slower memory, but it has Altivec. X1000 also has more ports and slots.

Advantages and disadvantages for each. I have two X1000s but probably better to have one of each.

I have two X1000s and no beta software, so I don't have many options. Might buy an OS release with NGFS one day, if there are anymore of those. Heh.

Hmmm. I am sure I am using an SSD with SFS partitions in one of my X1000s. Am I asking for trouble?

Not sure about my HD sectors. The hard drives are in the 1TB to 2TB range. The SSD is 512GB.

Re: Should I expect better video playback performance? (Southern Island/X1000 Updates)

Happy to test anything as well. I have two X1000s each with R9 270 cards. Have not yet purchased the newer DVPlayer and Enhancer versions, however. EDIT: I have purchased Emotion.

@Skateman

I had feelings about this when it was announced at Amiwest, so kept my purse close and closed. Awaiting the final word on capability and cost and requirements -- and reviews from other users.

I have held off buying the newest DVPlayer or the more recent Enhancer release(s) until all the pieces are out and the prices and capabilities of the software are clear. What I'm hoping to achieve is 1080p or better full speed video playback on an X1000, and preferably using the more than capable Southern Islands cards I already own. It sounds like, from what I'm reading, that progress has or is being made in this direction. Once it's clear what's being sold and for how much and that it's going to work as advertised, I'll be ready to buy into it. Of course, the price will have to fit my budget.

Watching with interest.

At least i as a beta tester can say, that Emotion/DvPlayer works correctly and plays videos fine with GPU support via va.library on the latest RadeonHD driver and all the related stuff.


Roman, thanks for sharing this. This information and what Matthew has said has got my attention as an owner of two X1000s and multiple RadeonHD cards.

Been a busy few days here, but I just got around to updating MV. Must say, the new arrangement with the podcast episode titles in the larger middle section is a nice improvement. That works out especially for me since I use a larger system font by default because of old-eye vision. :)

Re: Unable to play Podcasts

@levellord

Be sure your system clock is close to correct and then I bet your podcasts will play. Same thing happened with me.

I’ve also found Aamp does not play many podcasts I like, but ffplay and Emotion have played them all.

Try the clock thing first.

Re: DvPlayer V54.7 Released

I am excited about the prospect of having 1080p or better video playback on my X1000 computers that both have Southern Islands cards. I assume I will need a combination of this player and also the forthcoming new RadeonHD driver? If so, I will be watching for development and release news on the new video driver and will pounce once it is available to purchase.

@ktadd

George's program is brilliant and getting more useful almost daily with all the updates. Meantime, your wonderful and well conceived script brings very useful functionality. Being able to select among players on an as-needed basis is handy, and it is very smart how it defaults to one of them in a few seconds if no action is selected. I did edit the script to increase this delay from 3 seconds to 10 seconds because I am sometimes too slow to move the mouse and find my button in time. Heh.

Although I love AmigaAmp for music playback there are too many podcasts that don't work with it. Although I love Emotion for videos, using it for audio only playback does not give the visual stimulus I somehow crave. Using ffplay for podcasts has been bulletproof so far, and I like the waveforms dancing around in the window. :)

Also, love that you made it possible to save a stream as an mp3 file. That's going to be quite handy at times.

Good work, G and K. It is appreciated. These kinds of projects make AmigaOS and its associated weird and exotic (heh) hardware useful. I'm finding excuses to turn on these machines more regularly now, after letting them sit dormant for a very long time. Thank you!

Walkero, I downloaded 1.3.0 and have put it to use today playiing streams such as BBC and jazz stations. Works fine here on my X1000 and AmigaAmp.

Looking forward to podcast support. Your work is appreciated.

Re: What's wrong with this picture? Amigastore?
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Wait a minute. So if I type amigastore.eu a little wrong I wind up at AmigaKit? That is a shameful play. I'm starting to think this company is not so much serving the Amiga community as preying on it.

AmigaKit, you've just about torn your drawers with a growing number of us. I've done you a kindness, I feel, by not fussing in public about past problems between you and me as a customer, and I even returned to the fold by doing a bit of business with you this year. But, now I wonder what I was thinking by lifting my own quiet boycott. AmigaStore.eu is a wonderful business to do business with. I will be careful how I type it when placing future orders!

And, my advice on another forum is worth repeating: Leave Amiga Addict alone. You'll only damage your reputation more if you pursue this kind of stuff.

My enthusiasm for AmigaOS4 for better or worse is tied to my ehthusiasm for the companies and personalities behind it. At this point in time, I am not particularly enthusiastic about anybody. But this particular bit of business is stirring me to comment in pubilic.

Sorry, everyone, for the negativity, especially on Amigans.net. This place has always been about enjoying the marchines and the OS and the software. I don't mean to spoil that.

Re: MilkyTracker 1.03

@Capehill

EDIT: Actually the testing took me minutes not hours, and all is good here.

When I went to test against I found that I had too hastily deleted the new MilkyTracker so after I extracted the program from the archive again and ran it and used it to play some modules.... well, I find that all is working fine. Playback is perfect.

So I do not know what the problem was previously. My apologies for sounding the alarm. All is well here.

@Capehill

Thanks for response. The older version I have installed on my X1000 since ages is 0.90.80. It plays back fine. I don't ever create anything with it, just play modules made by others. Only thing I don't like about this version is I cannot figure out how to tell its built-in file requester to go to another device/volume -- only to folders going back to root. Probably I am missing something obvious.

Was pleased to see your version uses ASL, and that works a treat. Just have this problem where playback is bad. In fits and starts, very choppy. Maybe there is a setting I can adjust if this is not a bug???

Again, I am using an X1000 with Lyle's audio driver for onboard sound, and I am running OS4.1 FE Update 2.

Hi there. Thanks, Capehill, for working on this.

I just downloaded, and I must have something set wrong because playback is very choppy and sounds bad. Playback with a much older version of Milky is fine. This is on my X1000 using motherboard audio. Something I missed?

Lookee what I just found. Somebody showing a video of the X5000 spanking the X1000 in video playback thanks to the hardware acceleration. Man, I'm jealous. I do hope we get a solution for the X1000.

I wonder on this displaying of the CFE text issue.... what if one puts two graphics cards in the X1000? One would be an HD card and the other would be an RX card. Would that get around the issue?

I have run dual GPU cards in my X1000 since early days.
