Ay thank you :)

 

Keep up the great work Raphael :)

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

      Amazon introduces The Golden Era Vinyl subscription service
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Vinyl records, the last bastion of analog music in this digital world, has been making a strong comeback. Last year, over 27 million LPs were sold in the US. It is a clear indication that not only the nostalgic folks but also the newer generation has a fascination for vinyl records. To make most of this trend, Amazon, which already lists hundreds of thousand records in its catalog, has announced a new vinyl subscription service.

      Dubbed as 'Vinyl of the Month Club: The Golden Era', it offers a single album on vinyl every month. For those not in the know, the golden era of vinyl refers to the 60s and 70s. The service seems like a good idea for young vinyl enthusiasts planning to build their collection. Amazon claims that a monthly record is picked by its experts at Amazon Music. So far, Amazon has revealed that subscribers will get a chance to enjoy the work of legendary artists such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, and Fleetwood Mac.



      Upon subscribing to the service, you can find out the current month's album from Amazon's orders page. If you already own that album or it doesn't interest you, simply skip the month's package from the 'Manage Your Subscriptions' page. Amazon also allows subscribers to return a vinyl as long as its packing is intact.

      Amazon's Vinyl of the Month Club subscription costs $24.99 per month. The pricing is not bad considering that the cost of popular LPs varies wildly. For instance, Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti currently sells for $34.69 on Amazon.

      Amazon's idea seems inspired by the Columbia Record Club from the 50s. Conceived in 1955, it was the first venture to offer music through the mail. The company offered a complimentary record to boost its membership numbers. It was a huge success back then as the company was shipping over seven million vinyl records by 1957.
