#12675 assigned bug

Cortex no longer allows to drop media files into the routing window

Reported by: Giova84 Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Cortex Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All



years ago, when I had fun with Cortex on BeOS, I remember that was possible drag and drop media files (eg *.wav audio files) inside its window, to directly play them inside Cortex (also to add fx chains).

If you take a look to the documentation of Cortex 2.1.2 for BeOS, you can read the following:

"File-producers: to create a node capable of playing a given media file (audio or video), drag the file into the routing window"

Now, on Haiku hrev50141 is no longer possible: when I attempt to drag an audio file in Cortex it claims about a general system error, as shown in the attached screenshot.

Maybe Barrett could take a look to this issue? I noticed the recent improvements which he made to Cortex.

The screenshot is tall: you have to scroll to the bottom to see the highlighted error message.

Milestone: UnscheduledR1
Owner: changed from nobody to Barrett
Status: newassigned

I guess it's because we don't have a BFileInterface node dormant, enabling/installing the media_reader and media_writer should fix the issue
