Hi all, I know that by searching lots of threads here you can see some of the parameters Sd can be launched with (ie -testmode -nocompdelay etc) but i was wondering if anyone has a full list of whats available and what they do?
If its a sticky somewhere shoot me as il be dammed if i can find it anywhere!
Here is an updated list
Without -backgroundMP3 enabled, it seems that SD must load the next MP3s into memory from the HD after the current track has ended.
So, it seems that enabling -backgroundMP3 would cause SD to load next MP3 while the current track was playing.
- Is this correct?
- When does SD load MP3s without -backgroundMP3 enabled?
- How many MP3s does SD load? Does it fill available memory? The entire playlist?
- When exactly does -background MP3 cause SD to load the next MP3?
- What is the advantage of enabling it?
- When should it be disabled?
I ask because I have my media stored on a seperate 2.5 HD, connected via USB 1.1 (yes, I know, it's slow)...and whenever I select a playlist containing 10+ songs, SD becomes non-responsive, and there is a delay before it will accept input again. Is this because SD is attempting to load 10+ songs before starting to play the first?
Also what are the bennfits (if any) of running the no delay comp and no delay load tags? Just wondering if adding more tags for the areas I dont use (ie voice recognition) would speed up SD or just mudding the waters?
nodelayload and nodelaycomp will make your initial startup time much longer, but you won't have to wait for textures to load or components like the media player or navigation to load the first time you use them.
Background MP3 loading simply preloads the ID3 tags for mp3 files in the current queue. After all the tags for all mp3s in the queue are loaded streetdeck will be able to scroll the list to the current playing mp3 whenever it changes. Its not too useful if you always play your queue in order. The flag was only added because background MP3 loading caused some crashes on some computers. It should be stable now and is on by default and the flag is now -NoBackgroundMP3. The dialog hasn't been updated though. The ID3 tags will also be loaded whenever you scroll the list to an area with files that haven't been loaded yet. Once all the ID3 tags have been loaded or you scroll to the end of the queue, the background loading thread will end until you change the queue.
