My little music ecosystem is built around Play, so I was sad that it didn't work when I moved to Lion.

My system.log showed 2 important entries when Play started up:
* Illegal audio unit passed to setAudioUnit
* AudioUnitReset failed

I "fixed" this by bypassing the ComponentDescription tests setAudioUnit: in AudioScheduler.m, which seems safe enough since the AudioPlayer initialization checks for all possible errors.

On a probably related note, DSP displays are also pretty broken. Since I don't really use them, I didn't look into that.

Is there any way this code can be made available, I have the same problem. Is the author able to create a Lion compatible version?

I need to work on Lion compatibility for both Max and Play, but I don't really have enough time at the moment. It's something I plan on eventually, though.

Hi sbooth, while you are looking into the Lion issues, can you also take a look at the Last.fm client integration, since the new update from the Last.fm client today (version 1.5.4.28012) it doesn't pick up the songs played in Play anymore. Thanks!

Hi sbooth

I'm depending on Play for my little audio world as well, thus the question: Could you build a version with mute_dammit's workaround for the time being?

I've tried myself, but it doesn't build here - I'm not much of a Mac dev. As soon as Decibel has library support, I'd switch over.

Thanks a bunch!

I was PMed with a request for the binary, so here are all of the links you should need (32 bit Lion only).

Play r1079 at sourceforge:
https://playosx.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/playosx/

Patch to allow building a 32 bit version on Lion:
https://webspace.utexas.edu/mute/public/lion.patch

Resulting 32 bit Lion binary:
https://webspace.utexas.edu/mute/public ... ion_32.tbz

I should point out that my changes were based on the latest revision in subversion, r1079. I have no idea what features were introduced between 1079 and current git HEAD, and are therefore missing from my build. Also, it's probably worth pointing out that sbooth can't just apply this patch to the latest Play source and make everyone happy. I checked briefly, and the code has definitely evolved.

I have been maintaining and improving Play for the past couple of years. Every time I was preparing a release though, something came up. New bugs, no time, etc.

After finally switching to Lion a few days a go, I realized that it wasn’t playing anything due to the issues described and fixed by mute_dammit. I ported the patch and improved some other code in the vicinity. It works for me. You can find the latest source here:
https://github.com/JanX2/Play/

If anyone wants a binary of the current state, I will build one and upload it to github!

BTW: A huge thank you goes out to mute_dammit. Without his patch it would have taken me weeks to find the time to research the code changes necessary due to the deprecated Audio Unit APIs.

Hi,

could anyone tell me, what do I have to do to make it work?
I mean I got this folder, and an xcode project in it, but how can I make it work as an app?

I'm not a code/programing type of guy, I'm just a musician… ;)
compiling, debugging etc is not one of my forces, so maybe you could help me with making it work on lion, pretty please…?

all bests

Adam

mezkai, you should only have to download the prebuilt 0.3 (1079M) binary* from https://webspace.utexas.edu/mute/public ... ion_32.tbz. I just did and Play plays on OS X 10.7.4.

*"Binary" means a built "application", source code is just code that still needs to be built. To build software can be easy but it also can be very very hard.

My 10.6 macbook pro failed.
The replacement doesn't run 10.6

Play no longer works on the required 10.8. :-(((((

I purchased Decibel to get something going again with less nonsense than iTunes, but it lacks even the minimal features from Play like "play tracks from this Album."

How I wish Play would work again.
