z! 2.8aug08.

August 22, 2007 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Mark Dodel

A new release by Dink of z1, the VIO MP3 player for OS/2. Also plays OGG Vorbis ( requires plugin files from
) and streaming MP3. Can be used as a web browser helper app for playing MP3s or standalone to search for streaming MP3s. See main web site:

Changes listed in message posted by Dink on the z! message board:

Hi everyone, heres the long-awaited new version of z!

whats new:
x new: 5-star song-rating function; press + or - in the lister or while a track is playing to rate it.
x new: play now / play next / add to end of playlist icons added for each track via the built-in webserver
x new: auto-update current track/next/previous/connected users/etc via the built-in webserver
x new: option to specify a password for streaming audio
x fix: wrong time (current and total) on tracks with an image embedded in them
x fix: win32 only - crash shortly after a track with embedded image starts playing, thanks to fusion for supplying the mp3 for testing
x fix: save the data in the streaming buffers as well as the incoming data with 'w'rite stream to disk
x workaround: sometimes if another stream/song gets played in a separate copy of z! while one is already playing or paused - due to a bug in MMOS2, the f first z! will "inherit" the volume level from the newly spawned z!
x new: streaming function can be disabled completely by specifying a port of 0
x some other minor things I forgot about..
[edit aug.21/forgot to mention]
x new: track sorting in the web interface, click the Filename/Size/Last
Modified headings
