Re: Preview m4a audio files

99.9% chance it's the usual codec problem.

Install this:

And report back if still broken.

Re: selection breaks when an item is deleted

Confirmed. This issue is still present in 13.5 In addition, I have uncovered similar behavior in a slightly different setting. When a script deletes an item inside a folder during _Initialize, it will also destroy any list of items that was stored in a variable through the getselecteditempaths meth...

Re: High DPI on Windows 8.1

This has nothing to do with Xyplorer. It's Windows' horrid dependance on 96 dpi. Windows does not have the ability to uniformly scale software to higher DPI screens unlike OSX. It has mainly to do with keeping support for legacy software that was designed when 96 dpi was the standard. Microsoft had ...

Re: Youtube.com 0.6.5 - Update to VLC 2.1.2

VLC has updated to 2.1.2 and initial testing shows that whatever broke in the previous version was fixed. All functions of the script work like they used to again. :)

Re: Various Mysteries

PS: That context menu problem is, of course, a valid point. But, no worries, I will handle this soon, you will get your 64-bit context menu items. Just needs to be coded. I will soon switch to Win8/64 as my main work environment so you can be sure I will take care of that issue. :) Fully customizab...

Re: Youtube.com 0.6.5 - More Batch download improvement

VLC 2.1.1 Rincewind is producing some odd behavior. It will not play or download the CDN links that are generated by the script. But the same link will download fine using XYplorer and it will also play in stuff like Media Player or via direct access in Firefox or Chrome. Not sure what is going on t...

Re: Various Mysteries

This bit by user Kilmatead rings true with me: Which brings us to XY's main technical limitation (and it's a serious one, as a going commercial product): the lack of x64 support. Four or five years ago shell-based applications such as file-managers could get by being x86 only (as back then the major...

Re: Sandboxie

Aaargh! Just found out that Sandboxie no longer offers a lifetime license. Although I understand the reasoning to move towards annual subscription, I found the new license to be extremely harsh. Previously: Lifetime License Install On All Computers Now: 1 Year License. After Expiration, Sandboxie R...

Re: Find Hashes

I see a better way. It could be done. But is it bloat? No it's not bloat. More features in general means a better product. But I do think we're about to run into the wall regarding screen real-estate. It reminds me of that lead MS Office dev when he responded to question about why they changed the ...

Re: iPhone in XY

OK, I installed the HTC sync manager. Then I was forced to install WMP 11 (argh). Then after reboot the phone has disappeared from the device manager. No phone anywhere. I'm back to zero. Apart from that my system is now full of crap I don't need. You may need to enable USB debugging on the HTC pho...

Re: iPhone in XY

OK, I installed the MTP Porting Kit, rebooted, plugged my HTC smartphone into USB, and... nothing: it's not visible in Explorer. Attached you see that my Device Manager at least sees an "Android Phone". But I have no idea which driver it needs. I googled, downloaded, tried, but I did not find the r...

Re: XY development phylosophy

To be fair, I don't know of any other piece of software that I use so frequently where I could simply jump on the forum, ask a question, and get a response from the lead dev within hours. :)

Re: iPhone in XY

Outside the VM I only have XP which does not support non-drives . I'm using XP and my Samsung phone + iPad show up in Explorer without drive letter (drivers installed). Really! :shock: OK, I will check that later, sounds promising... I did some research and it appears that Windows XP does indeed su...

Re: iPhone in XY

HTC Desire. Have you tried connecting your phone and seeing if it works natively outside of the VM? i understand you're not our personal programmer-santa by the way Don. You have a roadmap and that's the way it should be. Any work you can put towards natively supporting MTP would be greatly appreci...
