I am a new user who uses Directory Opus for home use, it satisfies the most OCD afflicted amongst us, and I continue to be impressed (overwhelmed) by the depth of the program and the changes you can make, but onto my issue.
When I first installed the trial Pro version, and would click on a .flac file it would go to trying to endlessly load the file without success. When I then tried to click on closing the operation, or the Viewer Pane, the program would freeze requiring a force close. After reading some of the posts here I've managed to change the behavior to no longer freezes, but just displays the files thumbnail as .flac (Shell Thumbnail) in the Viewer Pane. To get to this point I uninstalled the K-lite codec pack, and a couple of unused music players. Mp3's play correctly in Windows Media Player, and I can double click the .flac file and it will open and play in my default music player foobar2000 correctly.
This isn't a deal breaker for me obviously or I wouldn't have purchased the program, but it would be nice to have it work as it is supposed to (to my understanding), using Audio Tags to play the .flac file.
I have tried:
- Resetting the .flac default player in Windows to WMP.
- Add .flac to the config file for both the Generic ActiveX 32-bit and 64-bit plugins.
- Add .flac to the Movie Plugin to see if VLC might play the file.
- Changing the Priority order of the Plugins.
If my understanding in reading some of the posts is correct then it appears that some program(s) or shell extension(s) may be interfering with Dopus from playing the file. Any input on how to determine what might be the offender is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading this,
