So far so good, performance is pretty darn good and the UI looks great :)

 

Not particularly a fan of the large 'dopamine' logo in the centre of the titlebar however.

Nice! Just a suggestion, you should have more default colors (I assume these are coming in future builds), but I do love that you can create create custom color schemes easily!

Looks very nice, ++ on the UI. I'll see how it works.

 

One thing I miss in most players is a thin horizontal mode to play on top of other windows.

That can be done. I've created a Task in Visual Studio Online (which I use to manage my projects) so I don't forget about it.

Fantastic UI design. I would say the only thing that bothers me is the huge custom title bar font. It's not common to see that, that's why it sticks out. It feels somewhat tacky.

Leave the custom font for splash screen and/or product branding.

That will probably happen. I didn't have much inspiration for nice looking colors yet :rofl: And indeed, you can add colors yourself too :)

I have few personal suggestion, if it could be possible in future builds.

 

- Duplicate Song Finder

 

Means find same songs and then suggest to extract out each copy of them in one separate folder and delete rest of files from other folders.

 

Scenario:

 

I have 5 to 6 folders, About 50+ songs will surely repeat in them, so I want to delete all songs from these folders and extract them in one new folder (to make new collection properly).

 

Just if it possible. It sleek looking UI.

 

- Option to start Dopamine right after setup finish, like usually software have tick mark to allow opening software after installation

 

I hope you don't mind these suggestions in just preview release. I know you will do good job with this player.

Thanks for the tip. I'll sure think about that. There are some ideas spawning in my head :)

Raphael.. that is absolutely amazing! That looks a lot better than most commercial programs out there. definitely will be downloading this.

 

Please, whatever you do, DO NOT SELL this. everytime someone sells an awesome program like this, it ends up being destroyed. where do I donate?

Concerning selling. I don't think we have to worry about that yet :) It's still very far from doing what it should.

There is a donate button in the application's About screen. It leads to my PayPal link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=ZHEXYNH8ALM5N

I pointed to my music folder but for some reason it didn't list the music that I have. I just simply pointed to "this PC/Music" I have some ripped CD's but a larger amazon music folder too.

 

for the time being, point to the folder above where the mp3 files are.

 

Raph, could you code it to list our songs by pointing to our thisPC/music folder? some have a huge selection of music like I do. then have it search subfolders? hope I'm not asking alot since I have such a massive collection of music.

ok I'm a disabled veterean on a fixed income but, when I can this month, near the end, I will definitely donate. this is awesome.

 

Don't worry too much about it. It is very optional :)

What audio format are your files? I forgot to mention (I did with musiX, but didn't think of it for dopamine) that it only supports: mp3, ogg, flac and m4a/aac.

Also, under Settings -> Collection, it should show you the folder you pointed to. Has "this PC/Music" been translated to the actual path on your computer?

I'm ready to do a lot, as long as I understand the problem :rofl:. On my computer (however I'm not excluding this might react differently on other machines), when I point it to "This PC/Music" this is automatically translated to the actual path where "This PC/Music" is located, which is "c:\Users\Rapha

      Apple reportedly testing Music and Podcasts apps for the Microsoft Store
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Apple retired iTunes for macOS back in 2019 with the release of macOS Catalina, splitting its functionality into three apps: Music, TV, and Podcasts. However, the company continued offering iTunes on Windows and had nothing to share about replacing the aging music client. A job posting spotted late in 2019 hinted towards possible efforts in that regard, with the firm calling on UWP developers to build the “next generation of media apps for Windows”. The company then made available Apple TV for Xbox late last year.

      Now, a new report suggests that the Cupertino giant is working to bring its Music and Podcasts apps to the Microsoft Store. The apps are reportedly being tested as part of a private beta program and a release is expected sometime later this year. It is not clear if the apps are aimed at Xbox users alone, just like the Apple TV app, or if Apple plans to make the offerings available for the PC as well via the Microsoft Store.

      Apple has been gradually expanding the availability of its services on multiple platforms. Apple TV, for instance, is making its way to Chromecast with Google TV and multiple smart TVs from LG and Sony. It will not be surprising to see the Music app make it to the Xbox, following the TV app. Though the service has a great web app. there is merit in releasing the apps for Windows 10 – and by extension for Windows 10X that is expected to launch on low-end PCs and tablets first – since it will greatly expand the reach of the company’s services via native apps.

      It will be interesting to see what the iPhone company has in store for Microsoft’s platform. The introduction of native TV, Music, and Podcasts apps to Windows will be a welcome addition for users of the services.

      Samsung debuts its new brand sound to appeal to young folks
      by Ather Fawaz

      Samsung kicked off its CES 2021 announcements with a new brand sound, 'The Voyage', complemented by a new animation of the company’s letter mark logo.

      Created by sound designers specializing in creating sound for product functions, Samsung claims that The Voyage represents its "overall brand identity" and is the first time that the firm will be communicating directly with its consumers via a brand sound. In line with the company’s iconic sounds like 'Over the Horizon' and 'Beyond the Horizon', the new melody presents a simplified musical scale so that the brand sound can be used in a broad range of applications.

      Overall, The Voyage accentuates Samsung's efforts to be "young and playful" so that it can appeal to "the Millennial and GenZ generations, in a more friendly and flexible manner." The South Korean tech giant plans to develop various arrangements of this melody for marketing activities while maintaining a single motif. If you are interested, Samsung has posted a bunch of variants on its blog post already; you may check those out here.

      YouTube reveals top trending videos and creators in the U.S. in 2020
      by Usama Jawad

      2020 has been an unusual year with people all over the world being restricted to their homes for extended durations and having to rely on digital services and capabilities for the most part. On the digital services front, YouTube even decided to cancel its annual Rewind celebration. While the company blamed the current circumstances, it has to be noted that its Rewind videos have been very poorly received over the past couple of years.

      While the firm may not be releasing a montage celebrating its top creators around the globe this year, it has still revealed the top trending videos and content creators in the U.S.

      YouTube has divided its trending content for the U.S. in various categories. Collectively, its top 10 trending videos on the platform garnered 356 million views and were watched for 48 million hours. The channels hosting this content totaled 175 million subscribers. Trending content and creators in 2020 mainly ranged from gaming to COVID-related videos. You can view the various categories below:

      Top Trending Videos (U.S.) Netflix Is A Joke - 8:46, Dave Chappelle Mark Rober - Building the Perfect Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder SNL - First Debate Cold Open JeffreeStar - We Broke Up MrBeast - I Bought The World’s Largest Firework NikkieTutorials - I’m Coming Out.

Roddy Ricch Roddy Ricch - The Box Drake - Laugh Now Cry Later ft. Lil Durk YoungBoy Never Broke Again - Lil Top Lil Baby - The Bigger Picture While YouTube has only revealed the trending videos and content creators in the U.S. currently, it's natural to assume that it will do a similar list on a global level at some later point in time.
