RE: About Icaros - Xanashi - 06-22-2012

Small update:

All Flac issues have been resolved; samples and property fields.
Also fixed another small unrelated problem.

xankazo,
I took a look at the APE specs, and have decided to add support for APE(v2).
It probably wont take too long. We'll see. ;-)

I'll post a new updated build as soon as I've finished testing another sample I've received.


RE: About Icaros - Lenmaer - 06-22-2012

OK,
Thanks a lot. ^^


RE: About Icaros - xankazo - 06-22-2012

Thank you so much!


RE: About Icaros - mjolnir870 - 06-22-2012

Thanks for the beta. Can the artwork option for mkvs be extended to cover mp4 and m4v files? Lots of files for my phone are tagged with artwork that doesn't show up using Icaros.


RE: About Icaros - julio99 - 06-24-2012

Does this need to run at startup?

No. It just needs to be installed.
It is included in my codec releases. So, if using them, you do not need to install it at all. You would alrready have it installed.


RE: About Icaros - Lord Meshadieme - 06-25-2012

Is there a silent install switch for icaros? Or do i have to wait for Vista Codec to be updated?

Great work you guyz.


RE: About Icaros - Xanashi - 06-25-2012

So, I wrote a few new parsers for Monkey's Audio (.ape) and MusePack (.mpc), the day before yesterday,
and have implemented them into the Property Handler today.
I just need to update the Thumbnail Provider too, and then I should have a new build ready for testing. ;-)

mjolnir870,
There is really no need for me to implement it,
MS' default thumbnail provider already supports cover art in mp4/m4v.
Just remove .mp4/.m4v from the optional extensions list.

julio99,
It's still a mystery to me, why your system fails to properly assign the thumbnail providers.
Atm, I'm not sure what to suggest to you. Undecided

Lord Meshadieme,
I'll see what I can do, to add a silent switch to the installer,
and a way to activate Icaros during install, as well.

MS default provider fails on certain mp4s, though.

Trying to get thumbnails for the second mp4 was why I originally enabled mp4/m4v/mp4v in Icaros. I will probably keep it enabled; having thumbnails is more important than displaying cover art for me.


RE: About Icaros - jiguro - 06-29-2012

Hi, total newbie here so I'm not familiar with the whole discussion, but a brief search didn't find anything relevant to my needs.

I would like to ask if it is possible to use Icaros only for providing shell extension for mkv files, without the thumbnail functionality.
Specifically, in the old days Haali Splitter integrated mkv files into the WinXP system and with a single mouseover you could get dimensions and basic track info (x264, 5.1 sound etc).
Is that in any way possible through Icaros (since it works with Win7 x64 systems), or could it be easily implemented if you considered adding this functionality?

Thanks in advance!
