CW-Multimedia Classes




Authors/Port authors:

The package is a complete replacement for the multimedia classes coming with MMOS2. The included classes are more robust and have an extended feature set like displaying image information in the settings notebook and the details view. A new JPEG IO-procedure overcomes limitations of the default JPEG procedure coming with the multimedia subsystem. Features:

  • Integrates MP3- and OGG-Files into the WPS;
  • Audio details of any audio class in folder details view;
  • Audio details of any audio class in the settings notebook;
  • ID3 tags in the details view of folders;
  • ID3 tag editing in the settings notebook;
  • Caching of information to speed up folder opening;
  • Image file information in the settings and the details view;
  • New JPEG IO-procedure included which may read progressive JPEG files;
  • Media folder plays any audio file class;
  • New shadow class showing audio details in folder details view;
  • Playlists (the folder contents is the playlist);
  • CD player with FreeDB support;
  • Control playing using setup strings;
  • Audio device sharing;
  • ID3 tag display in player;
  • REXX interface if WPS Wizard is installed;
  • Audio stream object for listening to IceCast servers.
This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Follow the instructions!

  • Install MMAudio Pak multimedia classes.
  • Make a copy of JPEGIO.DLL MMPARTS.DLL files in the directory MMOS2\DLL and backup your INI files.
  • Deinstall any old version of the media folder and the CWAudio classes. Restart the system.
  • Clean the INI files with Checkini.
  • Put the contents of the archive into a directory and start the script Runme1st.cmd
  • Restart the WPS. DON'T SKIP THIS STEP!
  • Rename the file MMPARTS.DLL in x:\MMOS2\DLL
  • Clean again the INI files with Checkini and/or another program.
  • Restart again the WPS. DON'T SKIP THIS STEP!
  • Run install.exe. This will copy the files and register the new classes. Editing OS2.INI with this little tool from Salvador Camacho you can change all system default players: see "Hidden features" in the main INF file. NOTE: multimedia classes work fine with XWorkplace. If you find problems, the installation was probably not properly done. WPS-Wizard is optional.
