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

      Twitch draws flak over improper use of licensed music
      by Jefferson Mangubat

      Twitch's recently launched Soundtrack feature is facing criticism over its alleged failure to obtain music licenses and for letting unlicensed soundtracks become accessible to streamers. This is according to a letter signed by multiple music organizations, addressed to Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of Amazon, which owns Twitch.

      Variety reported today that the streaming platform drew flak for its lack of licensing agreement with many music rights-holders. The signatories, which include the RIAA, Recording Academy, National Music Publishers Association, Music Managers Forum, American Association of Independent Music, SAG-AFTRA and more, lament that the service has not secured mechanical or synch licenses for Soundtrack. That feature was introduced in September to allow streamers to play licensed music during their stream without running into copyrights issues.

      The music groups also accused Twitch of ignoring "thousands of notices of music infringement" and failing to confirm receipt of these notices. In its letter, the organizations said they were frustrated "that Twitch continues to allow and enable its streamers to use our respective members’ music without authorization". The letter slammed the platform for continuing to host unlicensed music on its platform even after announcing in June that it would remove those contents.

      In response, Twitch said it "responds to each valid DMCA notification it receives by removing the allegedly infringing content expeditiously in compliance with DMCA requirements." Currently, Soundtrack has licenses from SoundCloud, Chillhop, DistroKid, and Monstercat, among other labels. However, it doesn’t have licenses for any major label soundtracks including those from Merlin.

      Apple Music TV brings a 24-hour music video streaming service for free in the U.S.
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Apple today launched ‘Apple Music TV’, a new 24-hour free music streaming service in the U.S. that serves up a constant stream of music videos and other related content such as “exclusive new music videos and premieres, special curated music video blocks, and live shows and events as well as chart countdowns and guests”. The service is being made available on the Apple Music and Apple TV apps.

      Apple Music TV can be found in the Browse tab of the apps and premiered this morning with the top 100 songs streamed in the U.S. on Apple Music. The platform also serves as a launchpad for new content. On October 22, the service will stream a celebration of Bruce Springsteen's “Letter to You” album that includes an interview by Zane Lowe, Apple Music’s radio station anchor, and “a special livestream fan event”.

      On Friday, October 23, there will be two new “exclusive video premieres” at 9 AM PT that include Joji’s “777” and Saint Jhn’s “Gorgeous”. The company adds that the channel will premier new videos every Friday during that time.

      The firm also says in the announcement that its original content like concert films, interviews, and documentaries will also "have a home on Apple Music TV”. The service looks to be aimed at rivals such as YouTube and Vevo. It will be interesting to see how the Cupertino giant expands Apple Music TV and what other content makes it to the platform.

      iOS users can finally add music to their Snaps
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      Snapchat tested the ability to add popular music in Snaps in New Zealand and Australia and promised the feature would be brought to more regions this fall. The firm is now making good on that promise, as it has added a new music feature called 'Sounds' which lets users add songs that will play alongside their posts. The feature is presently available to all iOS users globally, and it is not known when it would be rolling out on Android devices.

      Users can add a music clip to their snap after browsing through a selection of songs, and when their friends view the snap, they can swipe up to view information about the song or open it in a streaming app.

      For now, there are limited tracks available, including Justin Beiber's "Lonely" that is being featured exclusively in the app. Though the music selection on Snap isn't as extensive as users would find on Instagram or TikTok, Snap signed multi-year deals with music labels, so the firm can add to its catalog over time.

      Snap is also working on letting users create custom sounds to add to their stories, and the feature will be "rolling out globally in the coming months."
