Fixing Tardsplaya
« on: October 28, 2020, 02:44:40 am »
Can anyone fix Tardsplaya? Its a program written in Delphi that buffers Twitch stream(s) to media players such as MPC-BE, VLC, etc. Its modified source code is at https://github.com/Zero3K/Tardsplaya/tree/twitch-fix. It has one remaining issue (which is that the stream being buffered by it eventually stops buffering). I would also like the suggestions, etc. at https://github.com/Zero3K/tardsplaya/issues to be implemented into it.

How about implementing chunked encoding support?

I don't see the point of manual fixing the winapi piping code, if good wrappers for that exist in Lazarus: TProcess.

What do you mean by that? This is a Pascal/Delphi program. I am not asking for someone to port it to Lazarus (unless they want to).

When I tested it with the Saltybet stream, it froze on sending chunks after 20-25 minutes of the stream being played.

I guess no one can fix it.

Use tested code, if you can't get winapi code to run by yourself.

This is a Pascal/Delphi program.

Delphi code is offtopic on this forum, and all versions of Lazarus/FPC of the last 5 years have a functional TProcess. People even have used it with Delphi, but afaik there is no maintained Delphi port.

I am not a developer. Also, why mention TProcess when its not an issue with it running processes?

Why don't you ask on a Delphi forum.
Clearly you're asking the wrong people here.

Its only off-topic until someone ports it to either Lazarus or FreePascal.

But even then, he'll get FreePascal/Lazarus answers, which he just does not want.

I don't mind as long as someone fixes it.

In that case go and ask the developers. Multiple people have pointed out to you that it's a Delphi program and that this forum relates to the FPC and Lazarus development tools NOT DELPHI.

What developers? The guy who was working on it has stopped working on it and put its source code up (which I have mirrored and made a branch that has fixes that another developer has done to it).
