I was about to vote for the DirectX till ya double posted hehe. The ONLY reason is that I did not want a 3rd instance of Winamp running, the internal one for RR, the external one you use for Shoutcast, and possibly this being a 3rd instance for Pandora.
0.6.0 is now on App Mart! This is the most complete build thus far so download it and give it a go.
This version uses winamp as mentioned, and shows/hides winamp instance based on the HIDEPLAYER configuration setting in RR.ini.
There is also a new user setting called SkipOnHate. Set this setting to true if you wish Pandora to skip the currently playing track when you "hate" it (thumbsdown). The default for this setting is false, so old settings.xml files will still work.
I am testing the Pandora plugin right now and am having problems. It keeps crashing RR and the RRPANDORA command does not work. Is anyone else having this problem?
I have narrowed it down to the plugin because it only crashes after I install it.
RR Build 2-27-12 / Win 7 64
There is no rrpandora_debug.txt available becuase I am not even able to run it (checked the appdata folder and rr plugin folder). I Went back and tried it on Win 7 32bit / RR 2-5-12 and it has crashed. It may just be a 64bit problem.
I check the RR Live Debug Log and all a got was:
''COMMAND NOT EXECUTED: RRPANDORA"
I tried using it with Winamp 2.95, 5.13, 5.54 and the newest.
0.6.1 on App Mart now. That should fix the issue you have suavecito, i removed the directshow reference files but still initiated them in code. No longer an issue. 0.6.1 will also add the new SkipOnHate setting to your settings file should it not already exist (if your settings file was created prior to 0.6.0)
