dBpoweramp Renaissance is a revitalization of dAP (dBpoweramp Audio Player), re-built from the ground up with specific unique goals.

Designed to be the most efficient (in terms of memory footprint and resources used) audio player ever designed, featuring:

  • Built in UPnP Renderer: Renaissance enables your PC as a UPnP playback device, it can stream audio from a NAS / web for a distributed system where multiple playback devices can scattered around the home and playback from a single audio store, controlled by hand-held remotes, such as the iPod touch. (Renaissance appears as a UPnP Renderer, with Linn DS extensions)
  • Gapless playback: sample perfect decoding of mp3, Ogg and without saying any lossless format.
  • Bit perfect playback using WASAPI to bypass Windows mixer.
  • ReplayGain (not currently through UPnP)


Installation


See: http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?p=80815#post80815

µPlayer will run on Windows 7 / Vista / XP (also on Linux under Wine, or Apple MACs with Crossover MAC)

By default uPlayer can decode: Apple Lossless, FLAC, mp3, m4a, Wavpack, Wave, Ogg, Monkeys Audio, Musepack, AIFF

All codecs mentioned above can stream via UPnP (*** with the exception of Apple Lossless / m4a)

Other codecs install from Codec Central: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm

Usage

As a UPnP player, requires:



To Run, simply open Windows explorer and browse to:

C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpoweramp

and run uPlayer.exe (not uPlayer-upnp.exe), now your computer is a UPnP renderer and can play audio tracks through the default sound card. If you have Windows 7 (or Vista SP1) and want bit perfect playback run as:

"C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\uPlayer.exe" --zone="WASAPI:-1:dBpoweramp Renaissance"


Advanced usage

uPlayer is designed to be controlled from other applications, either by the command line or through a COM object:

uPlayer Install Updated

m4a removed from default install.

This will be very useful. I wish driver authors made it possible already. Now everybody owns a multichannel sound-"card", but I doubt a significant part of these users can setup properly arranged surround loudspeakers.


Intel are doing just that for their next generation on-board sound. Maybe it will catch on, as at the driver level it is much easier to do than at a program level.

QUOTE
However, when I enqueue 2 .wav files and play them after each other I hear a very small "click" if I turn my headphones on.


If you could email those wave files please:

Another problem ->
When I enqueued 2 files and start playing I can not enter any new commands. So I have to either stop playing or wait until the queue is finished to add a new file to the queue. But that would interrupt my gapless playback.

The thing is that with my program I need to re-enter new files to the queue while it is playing. Any comments about that?


When you enqueue audio files the .exe returns straight away, when you call the player to do the playing the exe does not return, so you need to call the player and not wait on its return (depending on how you call there is normally a switch to wait for the application to finish).
