How to Enable MAD
February 20, 2003 03:34AM
OK. I am a newbie with CoolPlayer, so go easy. But I read that it supports the MAD decoder. Can someone tell me how to do this. And how does MAD compare to the other built-in decoders.

Mad is enabled by default for mp3 files.

Hi, Mad is ment to be the best decoder for mp3 in terms of sound quality, I'm not sure though if it uses more or less cpu usage.

I am not sure if it is enabled by default. There is a choice of 2 in the Output options.

Do not confuse the decoder with the output driver - they are not the same. The decoder is MAD but will send data to the output driver of choice. I recommend the Cooler Wave Mapper - DirectSound never really matches up regardless of player.

So MAD is built-in and Cooler Wave Mapper and DirectSound are output drivers. Then what do the output drivers do if MAD is the decoder?

They take the decoded stream and output it to the sound card using the appropriate device calls (simplified explanation).
