    Default IrfanView can't play .OGG files?

    After upgrading to version 4 and installing the respective plugins, I get a decode error message when attempting to play an OGG file...

    Can't load plugin: "SOUNDPLAYER.DLL"!
    Please download/install Plugins from ItfanView homepage!

    Through the years, I have found IrfanView to be a masterpiece of engineering...so tiny yet so powerful; so I am surprised by the bug. Does anybody know how to make IrfanView support OGG files?

    Something must have gone wrong during your installation.
    I'm running v4 with the proper plugins, and IV is capable of playing OGG-files normally.
    Although the plugin still sets the win-mixer at 100 % volume which I don't like, but that's OT.

    And it's a pity the Esc-key doesn't work here...

    So you obviously need to have soundplayer.dll and FMOD subdirectory present in Plugins\. Soundplayer alone won't do since decoding is (improperly) done by FMOD library.
