Encoder Plugin v1.5 for RDJ
« on: May 01, 2013, 08:16:05 AM »
This is the latest version of the encoder plugin.

New - OPUS support*
Fixes - Minor code optimizations and clean-up


*Note: Song title metadata with opus is not yet natively supported. The problem is with the codec itself, not the plugin. However it could still be useful for a live broadcast or talk show and it is otherwise stable, so here it is.  :)

If you are just updating, to enable Opus support, you will need to add the opus encoder from here. Just drop opusenc.exe into your encoders folder. Also, on your Icecast mountpoint, it should be "/listen.opus" (without quotes) for it to work.

Recording Feature:
I have decided to do a separate plugin for this. I came to realize that it was too cumbersome to have this feature on the config window of the encoder. It makes more sense to have it as a separate plugin where the user can put it in whatever zone they want since multiple plugins in a zone are supported.

Download files:

Plugin_Encoder.VB.1.4.zip - Visual Basic version

Plugin_Encoder.CS.1.4.zip - C Sharp (C#) version

EncoderPlugin1.4.zip - Installer. Download link inside the zip file

Enjoy!  ;D

Am i right in thinking that Opus will only work with Icecast?

Had to switch back to 1.3 as the encoders weren't showing as connected and song titles weren't going through correctly on version 1.4  with the latest build of RDJ.

The Updated encoders are working perfectly. 

Great Job Snowhow ..... I just need an Icecast server to be able to test opus on now.

Ask and ye shall receive...

icecast_win32_2.4_beta3.zip

There is no gui - you have to edit the config file in the /etc folder manually, but it otherwise works. After that run icecast.bat and it starts right up...

Had to get a plugin to work with winamp in order to listen to the opus stream. http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?p=2925154

Got it streaming at 64 and it sounds OK i guess can't wait for it to become widely used by most of the main media players like VLC.

No it won't until SnowHow releases an update Marius did explain that on the 1.6.3.4 thread.

We're having a few broadband issues at present and i have noticed when the connection drops and the encoder cannot connect it just locks RDJ 1.6.3.4 up completely.

Is there anything you could do do stop this from happening? :bash:

Here is a modified file with the listener function removed. The only other change I made was to the class file to make it compatible with v1.6.3.4, which I have no control over.

Also, if you have the encoder in Zone 3, move it to 2 or 4 before you try the new file because I've been having issues with it initializing properly in Z3...
