enable transparent archives. have fun.

Hmm never noticed that option. However for the karaoke rar files it's not working as the archive contains 2 files. Like i said before for now i'm happy with the karaoke/rar function as it is but i'm guessing it should be relatively easy to treat rar archives with 1 cdg and 1 mp3 file as a single file archive?

Ah if only i could code more than c64 basic 10 print"hello world" ....

its easily added but i'm not sure we want to. it will add significant delay to browsing if there are large archives about.

While i can not code i can think of ideas, what if you could define a designated karaoke folder where xmbc automatically assumes all archives are cdg+mp3 archives? Ah well i'll just see if anything like this will ever be implemented.

Thanks for the tips and keep up the good work.

Hi,

me and my friends would be also very interested for a solution to play mp3+cdg file from the Zip Archive, is there something new or planed?

Maybe this feature could be switched on/off with the karaoke trigger from the settings menu?

This would make the XBOX with XBMC the best Karaoke machine ever.

Thank You

Schmitty

Any chance of karaoke making it into "new xbmc"? Im now using a PC instead of xbox,and would love to have this karaoke option again.

I donated $40 to the XBMC project, and so should you.

We also made better .mid/.kar support (converting to new Timidity++ which supports soundfonts). Currently I'm working on handling .kar/.lrc files.

Anyone have any success with this? I have been fiddling around on my linux box today and I can't seem to get it working. Just out of curiosity what sort of mic setups are you hardcore Karaoke types using? Just a regular computer mic or a real mic?

Works like a charm for me. Don't have a mic right now, but the function in Xbmc works fine (running on Windows).
