Re: Mostly used media player with NVDA


 

Winamp is quite good.

However unless you have a place like winamp heritage or my winamp to get plugins or chipamp, then winamp aint much good.

Its nice for streamers and the like though to be honest chip files are what its geared towards now.

Some say xmplayer works though not tried it.

A lot of die hard chippers on a chips folder I am in swear by foobar which I have not bothered with.

Vlc is also another player that works.

Kmplayer works but I have never tried it extensively.

Windows media player can work, media player classic and new media player classic home cinimar do work but only doodled with basic classic player.

One thing to note, you may want something like codicguide.com's mega klite codec pack so you don't have issues with codecs and the like, vlc is all codecless as its internalised stuff.

When using NVDA, you don't have the time marker feature JAWS incorporated for use with Winamp.  But there is a utility made by the late Carlos, who is much missed, that will allow you to set time markers with any screen-reader or even without one.  It is completely independent of and doesn't require a screen-reader be used.

Then, there is a plugin I use for slowing down or speeding up the speed of material.  It doesn't keep the pitch constant, it slows down and speeds up speed as though you were using a variable speed control on a tape recorder or record player.  That plugin is very useful to me.  I digitized a lot of tapes and my tape recorder was running a little fast.  I slow down the speed of the files when I play them in Winamp.  They must be certain formats or the plugin doesn't work properly.  I know MP3 will work,  There may be others but I don't know what works and what doesn't.
