  • Windows Media Player and ME 2.1

    Gday,

    I've just tested out me 2.1 and was pretty impressed with the feature updates. The only problem I have with it is the fact that it uses winamp as a music engine instead of 2.0's WMP. Most of my music collection is in WM9 lossless and therefore is not compatible with the winamp engine.

    Is there any way I can set ME 2.1 to use WMP??? Would be sooo good if I could get that to funtion.

    Thanks for your help,
    Dave

        Winamp can play WMA Lossless Files with a simple change to the preferences. To make it play just do this (I'm using Winamp 5 so it may be different for others):

        1. Go into the winamp preferences.
        2. Click on "Input" listed in the "Plugins" section.
        3. Click on "Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder"
        4. Click on Configure.
        5. add ";WMA" to the extension list.
        6. Click OK
        7. Click Close
        8. Play all your WMA Lossless Files

            Did you add it to your regular install of winamp or the winamp in the M.E. directory ?

                I don't have ME installed at the moment, if I get a chance I'll look around.
