Hi HA guys,
The rockbox iRiver iHP1xx port comes nearer... Real playback with gapless will be there quite soon... Here a quote of yesterday IRC log (thanks for Muesli to publicate this at MR place >>HERE<<!)
QUOTE
(16:19:24) (Slasheri) now doing a new test. there was some bugs present in the code
(16:28:44) (rasher) Slasheri: how did it go?
(16:29:00) (Slasheri) rasher: still one minor bug delaying the test
(16:29:05) (rasher) ah
(16:39:3 (Slasheri) minor bug found, problem was that in code there was =- and should be -=
(16:39:47) (preglow) ahhaha, nice
(16:39:51) (ashridah) rofl.
(16:39:52) (Slasheri) indeed
(16:41:49) (Slasheri) ashridah: aah, now it was 100% gapless switch =)
(16:41:57) (Slasheri) preglow, sorry
(16:41:57) (preglow) the test tone as well?
(16:42:00) (Slasheri) yes
(16:42:01) (Slasheri) very well
(16:42:03) (preglow) excellent
(16:42:05) (preglow) then you're good to go
(16:42:07) (Slasheri)
(16:45:11) (preglow) and you do gapless by just shaving the last frame of a song a bit?
(16:47:09) (Slasheri) with ogg files no raw pcm data is shaved out
(16:47:22) (Slasheri) but with mp3s that will be necessary

(16:48:20) (Slasheri) i already have some ideas how to do that with mp3's
Shagnar: (16:48:57) (preglow) ahh, then tremor does it for you
(16:49:04) (Slasheri) yep
(16:49:14) (preglow) how long until we'll see a patch again? tongue.gif
(16:49:44) (Slasheri) maybe a few more days. It would be too soon to release it today because there is still lot to do
(16:52:32) (Slasheri) now i could do some filebuffer optimizations so the same codecs will not be loaded to file buffer between every song. Only when codec changes, that loading would be necessary
(16:53:45) (Slasheri) currently the rockbox will also fully load the ram buffer, no matter even if it's necessary to cut the last song
(16:53:4 (preglow) codecs should be loaded when you load files into the file buffer
(16:53:5 (Slasheri) yes, i will do it to work that way
(16:54:0 (preglow) we'll need to branch out the iram copy in some way
(16:54:23) (preglow) so we can switch codecs without having to load them from disk
(16:55:41) (Slasheri) in my current implementation, all necessary codecs are loaded into filebuffer and when it's necessary to use a codec, it will be loaded to iram from that filebuffer instantly
(16:56:12) (Slasheri) the switch is gapless because there is audiobuffer also
(16:56:30) (Slasheri) and that won't limit how many different codecs can be in the buffer at a time
(16:58:22) (preglow) holy shit, vorbis is good at lower bitrates
(16:58:25) (preglow) it beats aac to a pulp
(16:58:44) (Slasheri) 7
Shagnar: und s beste:
Shagnar: (16:59:23) (preglow) i've encoded an album with avg bitrate 33kbps, and it sounds wonderful
(16:59:35) (preglow) i can hear it's encoded, sure, but quality is surprisingly good
(16:59:55) (ashridah) preglow: yeah, it does better quality at lower rates
(17:00:14) (ashridah) not quite as good as speex, depending on the job, but good for low-rate streaming
(17:00:15) (rasher) speaking of aac...
(17:00:20) (ashridah) (of music)
(17:00:33) (preglow) of course, but speex only does voice
(17:01:13) (ashridah) yes
