I try to keep the bit rate at 128 or higher. I use music match to convert
bitrate.
I think when I downloaded cdex I had to download a codex encoder. I can't
remember for sure. I haven't had too many problems with xatshow. I have
used d/l songs and songs I converted from cd's. I only use mp3's because
wav's
take up too much space.

Thanks Robin. I downloaded CDex and tried several variations of
codex, bitrate, stereo vs "jstereo", etc. but haven't found the right
one yet. Xatshow either says its not a recognized format or reports
the wrong duration (ranging from a third of the actual # of minutes,
to over 35,000 minutes!). What codex and other settings--bitrate,
MP1/2/2.5, etc., do you have luck with?

with CDEX, do a convert to another format and then convert that file to mp3

Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try! It's a bit of a trip around
the barn but worth it to save the space, .mp3 format versus .wav.

Finally got the right combo of codex and program settings. Your tip
helped. Also, I had a later version of the lame_enc.dll codex from
other experiments so I substituted it (V1.32, engine 3.93 MMX). When
I convert a WAV file to MPEG I, 128 kbps min. bitrate, auto output
sample rate, I get output Xatshow likes. Happy camper again.

I have d/l trials of other slideshow programs, but
always come back to xatshow. I'm very happy
with this program.
