Description

It could be very interesting (and so could attract even more users) to have an "audiophile mode" for MediaPlayer, as cPlay does:

The site linked has "harmful programs", so, that's probably not very useful.

A bit old but - nowdays more than before - "audiophile mode" playing is mutch followed...

This is not what I expect from the default media player in the OS. A good 3rd party opportunity, maybe.

What it requires:

  • reconfiguring the soundcard to use the same bitrate as the file that's played
  • no volume setting in the application (use your amplifier volume knob)
  • locking anything else to play sound, probably by bypassing the mixer node in media kit

This is invasive.

In other words, using a multitasking computer for this is not appropriate.

Maybe but "bitperfect" reproduction is now implemented in Windows too (WASAPI).

It would be interesting to have such kind of "option" in media kit, IMHO.
