|X - Crossfader plug-in (fade.dll)||The plug-in loads as expected,
not do it's job anymore. Most likely because it makes assumptions about
undocumented properties of older PM123 versions.
The new plug-in interface features of PM123 1.40 should allow to write a more sophisticated solution using a filter plug-in. However, somebody has to do the job. But since PM123 1.40 supports gap-less playback out of the box, it is no longer that important.
|X - Normalizer plug-in (normal.dll, normhelp.dll)||Will not work because it
utilizes the visual plug-in interface which has changed with PM123 1.32.
It also is superseded by the built-in Replay-Gain handling since 1.32rc1.
|OK - Monkey's Audio decoder (macplay.dll)||Reported to work with PM123 1.40 by Cal.|
|? - True Audio decoder (ttaplay.dll)||May work, but neither I have a file nor I can create one with OS/2.|
|x - Module files decoder (DPMikMod.dll)||Crashes with pm123 1.40 sooner or later when the playback starts, mostly on the 2nd usage. Reason unknown. Looks like undefined behavior because of a dangling reference to some structure on the stack. No source available.|
|OK - older Ogg Vorbis plug-in
|Works as expected. But since PM123 1.32rc1 a Ogg-Vorbis plug-in is included anyway. Unfortunately it has the same name. But it is entirely different and superior.|
|? - Musepack decoder (mpcplay.dll)||Untested. I have no such files.|
|? - WavPack decoder (wvplay.dll)||Untested. I have no such files.|
|OK - FLAC play 1.2.1 (flacplay.dll)||Works as expected. But superseded by flac123.dll, shipped with PM123 1.41.|
Note: When loading older decoder plug-ins you might want to add some extended attributes file types to the plug-in in the properties dialog. This enables you to play files without the standard extensions.
