It's my understanding that the NWC Scriptorium has an engine of sorts that can play back scores directly from that site. @Richard Woodroffe , who posts the weekly Scriptorium update messages, could probably describe it better.Mike
Microsoft is at it again. Although we have never seen a formal announcement from Microsoft, it is clear to us from its behavior that Microsoft intends to drop support for standard browser plug-ins in their Internet Explorer product. Microsoft started this process several years ago, and it appears to be finishing the job. The most recent security update for Internet Explorer disables the Plugin.ocx mechanism, which in turn, turns off any browser plug-in that uses it, including the NWC Browser Plug-in. In its security bulletin, it implies that it will no longer be installing this mechanism with new computers. This means that over time, users wishing to take advantage of the NWC Browser Plug-in while browsing should switch to an alternate browser that supports the plug-in standard.
Re. the winamp plugin: it's quite old and it does not play the NWC2 files.By the way: who (else but me) still uses winamp?

I still use Winamp - it's nice to know I'm not totally alone!
That makes three of us
Windows 10 has a built-in recorder. Set NW Viewer to full screen and press Windows+G, then set the Viewer going. But, be warned, the file is very large, so you will need suitable compression software - there's plenty of free on-line ones.
What is the difference between just playing the NWC2 file and opening it with the NCW Viewer and playing it from there? I'm not really seeing a difference.
There are other softsynths similar to Coolsoft such as BassMidi
VirtualMIDISynth is a software MIDI synthesizer implemented as a Windows multimedia user driver accessible as a standard MIDI Out device.It works on Windows XP/Vista/7/8 (both x86 and x64) and is based on the great BASS library from un4seen.
The only downside of using soundfonts is the time it takes to find one you like.
Using the viewer instead of NWC hides all the invisible bits showing up in the latter.

Could you explain the purpose of the viewer if you already have the editor? It doesn't make sense to me.Also, in the viewer, I was checking out all the functions (as I never have really used it, since I have the editor). The button which is supposed to loop the playback doesn't seem to be working. It doesn't go back to the start, but only replays the last few bars. What am I doing incorrectly?Thanks
The loop only goes back to the last place that you pressed F5(Play) . So if you last pressed F5 at the start of the piece, that's where it will go back to. But if you pressed F5 at say bar 45, the loop will start again at bar 45.This is extremely useful for example for chorister who are trying to learn a tricky part.So for example, a chorister can press F5 at the start of a fast semi quaver run after having set the tempo at say 50% and then repeatedly play that section to try and learn it. When happy at 50% then up the tempo to 75% and repeat the process.Hope this helps.
Having the option to disable the automatic launch into NWC stops that behaviour and makes opening files to edit from explorer difficult, though not impossible, just right click and open with...
An easier way: viewer -> Options -> Automatic launch in NWC
But of course, for someone who likes or has to read the score in parallel to listening to the music, this is not enough. So the only way of doing it is making a video that shows the score; and plays the music at the same time. There are essentially two ways:Use a screen-grabber (what all the gaming people do), and record a video of NWC playing the music;or create a PDF score, and embed controls in the NWC file so that the PDF pages are flipped over at some convenient point - and then once again record the screen showing the flippant PDF-score with a screen-grabber, with the audio on the background. This shows off your professional printed score, but does not hint where the score is playing on each page; but someone reading along should be able to figure this out - otherwise, the whole reading exercise is useless anyway.I have done both - it was quite a lot of work in each case; but at some point I'd like to fine-tune both approaches so that they become simple, run-of-the-mill processes. For the second one, I use(d) the MIDI-to-keystroke feature of Bome's "MIDI Translator Classic"; my (game-playing) son provided the screen-grabber whose name I forgot.H.M.
Then I tried the top pick: https://www.flashbackrecorder.com/expressThis is the one that I am going to stick with. I will have to edit in my video editing software, which is fine. The mouse can be highlighted in various colours, and it follows all the windows changes I make with no issue. And the express version is free.
