Given the CSII plug in for WMP9 and the fact it seems its not likely to appear in MJ (MC) 9 I may be forced to use WMP sometimes for multichannel listening...


Is there a way of getting WMP to work with APE files ???


Anyone tried the DirectShow filter for APE's ??

PP,


Have you considered converting (all) your APE files into WMA Lossless, using the MC9 library tools? Besides being a good way to test your CPU cooling solution (100% utilization for a very long time!), I don't see any drawback to doing so.


I do like the fact that WMA is supported by many applications (such as myHTPC, etc...)

I considered it but have read that WMA lossless performs equalization and normalization even on its 'lossless' settings... Hence the lossless is not truly lossless (not bit perfect copies)...


I was also told this cant be turned of through user settings (but that it was possible with some reg tweaking that I never discovered)... All in all it made me nervous enough not to be interested in risking converting my whole album collection...


Recently I have been unarchiving APE's to a temp WAV solution simply to trial the CSII... It would so much easier if the CSII plug in could be a directshow filter (that worked with ASIO or KS)...
