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 :)

I don't mind at all. Thanks for the suggestions. I've added these 2 as tasks in my Project.

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

      foobar2000 1.6.1
      by Razvan Serea



      foobar2000 is an advanced freeware audio player for the Windows platform. It features the simplest, most minimalistic interface you'll ever see in this kind of program. Other features include full unicode support, ReplayGain support and native support for several popular audio formats.

      foobar2000 features:

      Supported audio formats: MP3, MP4, AAC, CD Audio, WMA, Vorbis, FLAC, WavPack, WAV, AIFF, Musepack, Speex, AU, SND... and more with additional components. Gapless playback. Full unicode support. Easily customizable user interface layout. Advanced tagging capabilities. Support for ripping Audio CDs as well as transcoding all supported audio formats using the Converter component. Full ReplayGain support. Customizable keyboard shortcuts. Open component architecture allowing third-party developers to extend functionality of the player foobar2000 1.6.1 changelog:

      Added support for HLS: HTTP Live Streaming. To use, add internet M3U8 file through Add Location dialog. Enabled icy-metadata support for Ogg FLAC internet radio streams. Updated Properties / ReplayGain page layout if editing a single file. Improved Properties dialog performance, list of autocomplete entries is populated asynchronously. Enabled embedded album art loading from raw .AAC files with ID3 tags. Updated FFmpeg to 4.3.1. Added support for playing Matroska A_MS/ACM content. Fixes for rare AAC codec configurations that FFmpeg doesn't fully support - an add-on decoder can override the built-in one for such special cases.

Fixed "fade on manual track change" setting not being used since version 1.6. (beta 6) Changing volume no longer affects Windows Mixer sliders; restarting foobar2000 no longer resets Windows Mixer slider to 100%. (beta 7) Mitigated crash when initiating drag&drop of a very large number of songs (such as Album List "all music"). (beta 8) Enabled support for 7-zip archives using PPMd compression.

      Amazon Music now has podcasts in the U.S., UK, Germany, and Japan
      by Rich Woods

      Today, Amazon announced that it's adding podcasts to Amazon Music for customers in the U.S., UK, Germany, and Japan. They're available for all of the various tiers of the company's music services, and at no additional charge.

      The company also said that it's going to be releasing a series of original podcasts, which of course will be exclusive to Amazon Music, similar to what Spotify has been doing. Some of these exclusives will be hosted by people like DJ Khaled, Becky G, Will Smith, and Dan Patrick. Amazon is also picking up the rights to the "music-meets-true-crime" podcast called Disgraceland.

      "Our customers’ listening habits are constantly evolving, and we know they’re looking to us to provide them with a rich experience rooted in music and entertainment," said Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music. "With this launch, we’re bringing customers even more forms of entertainment to enjoy, while enabling creators to reach new audiences globally, just as we’ve done with music streaming. Podcasts, paired with our recent partnership with Twitch to bring live streaming into the app, makes Amazon Music a premiere destination for creators."

      Podcasts are available on Amazon Music starting today, and as mentioned, it's for all tiers, including the free one. You can listen using an Echo, the Amazon Music app, or on the web. If your podcast isn't listed yet, you can add it here.

      Facebook will let partnered creators play copyrighted music during game livestreams
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Facebook is making it easier for its partnered creators to play copyrighted songs in the background of their livestreams without running into legal issues. Facebook Gaming has teamed up with music labels and publishers to give its top streamers access to a vast library of songs that they can use while live-streaming games.

      Leo Olebe, Global Director of Games Partnerships at Facebook, announced the latest change today. The songs covered include a variety of genres including current pop hits, dance floor beats, hip hop, and 80s classics. Access to copyrighted music is thanks to Facebook Gaming's partnerships with Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Kobalt Music Group, BMG publishing, and Merlin. These licenses cover more than 90 countries.



      It should be noted, though, that the licenses do not include every song. Some tracks are restricted and if players try to use those titles, they will receive a notification informing them of the restriction. However, Facebook didn't say which songs are not covered by the agreement.

      Streamers must also make sure that their livestreams focus on the gaming aspect, not on the song being played. For now, access to copyrighted music will be rolled out first to partnered streamers. Facebook plans to eventually bring it to Level Up creators in the future, although they can still access a catalog of royalty-free music and sound effects through Facebook’s Sound Collection.
