This package contains an MPC playback plugin for BMP (Beep Media Player),
a media player that uses a skinned user interface based on Winamp 2.x skins,
and is based on ("forked off") XMMS.

Now that libmpcdec has been included into Extras, this plugin can be too.
Comment 1 Eric Tanguy 2006-04-12 02:10:47 EDT
Needs work:
* Source 0 is not available
  (wiki: QAChecklist item 2)
* BuildRoot should be %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot)
* BuildRequires: gcc-c++ should not be included
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#Exceptions)
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2006-04-12 05:44:12 EDT
* A huge blocker is that it fails at run-time. The code formerly
taken from XMMS has not been updated to stay in sync with the
progress in BMP.

The plugin still uses plain fopen() and also libmpcdec's internal
stream I/O interface whereas BMP has advanced to implement VFS
features. The files/URLs passed on from BMP to the plugins have
prefixes like 'file://' or 'http://' and escaped special characters,
e.g. %20 for space. The plugin fails to read such input:

[xmms-musepack] mpcGetSongInfo is unable to open
: No such file or directory
[xmms-musepack] mpcGetSongInfo is unable to open http://localhost/test/test.mpc
: No such file or directory

While it would be trivial to patch the code and strip off a 'file://'
prefix to make it work with local files, it would be more work to
replace libmpcdec's stream I/O functions with something compatible
with the VFS features.

* Upstream download location has moved to:

I've contacted the author about this issue. Thanks a lot for spotting it, as I
thought I had some strange ape/id3 tag problem on the mpc files I was trying to
open with that plugin...
Comment 4 Matthias Saou 2006-07-04 07:50:46 EDT
Closing as WONTFIX since the author doesn't seem to have time or motivation to
fix the plugin, and the newer bmpx is gstreamer-based now anyway.
