Play / Pause no longer works from my keyboard :(  I am using a Cosair K70 RGB multimedia keyboard and this used to work, now it does not!  I push play/ pause and it pauses then plays again... its supposed to be a toggle.

 

Tested with 1.5.4 its working fine.  1.5.6 ... not working!

Edit: My backup Logitech K400 seems to have the same issue you describe.

That's unexpected. Media keys support hasn't been touched since 1.5.4.

 

Have you re-tested with 1.5.4 after testing with 1.5.6? This would rule-out external factors (you can use the portable 1.5.4 version to avoid messing with your collection. It will create a local collection in the folder where the portable version resides, which you can safely delete after testing).

 

Are you, by any chance, using a Windows 10 insider build? I have reports that build 17063 breaks the Dopamine system notification. Just trying to rule out this too.

Is your Logitech issue new since Dopamine 1.5.6 or have media keys never worked with Dopamine when using the Logitech keyboard? Logitech is known to use custom software (SetPoint) to map media key shortcuts, which interferes with the default way of doing things. So you'll need to be exact when replying to this question.

Could your issue be related to this? Dopamine issue 578 and How do I get my Logitech media buttons to control Spotify

My apologizes I upgraded to 1.5.6 and this time I rebooted and it's working fine.  Sorry for the trouble.  I never use insider builds, Windows 10 has enough issues as it is lol

Sorry for the late reply, batteries were getting low on the keyboard. Replaced them and the issue is gone...

I'm not sure why, exactly, but Dopamine doesn't want to play a folder from the context menu, Just shows an empty playlist. Trying to find a replication.

Guys, when I use the context menu in the Windows File Explorer to listen to an album with Dopamine, it doesn't work. It opens Dopamine with the miniplayer, but it stays blank and nothing gets played. Is this happening just to me?

Thanks!

You're not alone. That's the same issue as reported 2 posts up. I broke that when adding another feature in one of the latest builds. Version 1.5.8 will fix it (release is in a day or 2).

Yes it is. I'd wait a day though. I discovered an issue in version 1.5.8, where albums don't show when an artist or genre only has 1 album. I'm working on a fix.
