Since today, starting SWYH 1.3 a message box will notify you of the availability of a new version 1.4! It’s here, after more than 2 years
- Support for multi-channel sound cards
- Support sound cards with a higher sample rate to 48kHz 16 bit (tested to 24 bit, 192,000 Hz)
- Streaming to a Media Renderer by starting SWYH.exe with the command line argument “-streamto: XX” (where XX is the name of your Media Renderer)
- Fixed “the” bug (forum report) that can cause a crash when starting SWYH (System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException)
- Optimizing CPU usage when SWYH is in “sleep” (acquisition and compression of the audio stream if and only if clients are connected)
- Writing the “crash” log file when an unhandled error occurs on the user’s desktop (because access denied when writing the file into the SWYH directory in Program Files if not run as admin).
- Upgrade to NAudio 1.7 and replacement of my MP3 encoding library (SWYH.Audio.Mp3.dll) by the new NAudio.Lame library (new audio processing & new MP3 encoding)
- Other minor changes
Moreover, SWYH is now Open Source to enable everyone to understand, diagnose, fix and improve this great application. So if you are a developer, fork SWYH on Github : https://github.com/StreamWhatYouHear/SWYH !
Any “pull request” is welcome! Thanks in advance to all future contributors.
To read my full announcement: http://www.streamwhatyouhear.com/2015/06/02/stream-what-you-hear-is-now-open-source-and-new-version-1-4/
Then install this new version ! It fixes the error due to the DLNA device detection that crash SWYH on startup in some case, and support the multi-channel sound card or with a high rate sampling (that crash in 1.3). As it integrated a new audio processing for MP3 encoding it could even improve the compatibility with your equipment!
Long live Stream What You Hear and thank you all for your different supports
