Mixxx Portable 2.0

Description

Mixxx Portable is an open source computer program for DJing music. Mixxx is cross-platform and supports most common music file formats. It can be controlled with MIDI/HID controllers and timecode vinyl records in addition to computer keyboards and mice.

Mixxx is a DJ Automation and digital DJ performance application and includes many features common to digital DJ solutions as well as some unique ones: It natively supports advanced MIDI and HID DJ controllers, is licensed under the GPL (v2.0 or later) and runs on all major desktop operating systems. The project was started in early 2001 for a doctoral thesis as one of the first digital DJing systems. Over 1,000,000 downloads of the app occur annually and as of Mixxx 1.10.0, 100 developers and artists have helped create Mixxx. Recent versions support harmonic mixing and beatmatching, both manually and automatically.

[QtKeysCleanup]
; Qt applications tend to leave quite a lot of a mess behind them which needs to be cleared up. This section deals with cleaning up keys like these:
1=Qt Factory Cache 4.8\com.trolltech.Qt.QImageIOHandlerFactoryInterface:
2=Qt Plugin Cache 4.8.false
 
[DirectoriesMove]
; These are directories for which to manage portability. They come in the form [directory]=[target location].
; The directory is the location of the source directory, relative to the portable data directory (AppNamePortableData).
; he target location includes the directory you want it to go to, so %PAL:DataDir%[directory]*.* gets copied to [target location]*.*. Environment variable substitions (http://portableapps.com/manuals/PortableApps.comLauncher/ref/envsub.html) apply.
; f the target directory already exists at the start of the process, it will be backed up (to target location-BackupByAppID) and restored at the end.
; If you do not wish to save the data but only want to keep a local version safe and throw away any changes, set the source directory to "-".
directories\LOCALAPPDATA="%LOCALAPPDATA%\Mixxx"
directories\MUSIC="%USERPROFILE%\Music\Mixxx"

    Works great for the most part! Thanks!

    HOWEVER: won’t play .aac files.

    Looks like there *is* support for .aac in Mixxx, but one has to compile the plugin oneself (horrors)…

    Any thoughts on how to get hold of a plugin that could play .aac?

      Hello, generousD!
      I didn’t have such a problem and unfortunately I can’t answer. I recommend you ask your question on an official Mixxx forum. They will help you faster.
      P.S. Thanks for thanks.
