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.

Thank you!

Cheers for the updates

 

Just reporting, Avast scanned the update installer for malware, but cleared it. No big deal.

Sadly, Avast does this on almost every release. I scan each release with NOD32 before publishing. Enjoy!

Loving the player.  Now my primary player on the PC. Is it possible to add the ability to Tweet now playing tracks?

 

Thanks

Thanks for loving it! There is currently no Twitter integration. I'm however working on a plugin system, which will allow plugging anything to playback events, including Twitter. I might create the Twitter plugin myself.

Albums showing up multiple times. ID3 tags look fine.

Please check the F.A.Q. https://www.digimezzo.com/software/dopamine-f-a-q/

Could it be a case of Why are some of my songs not grouped in one album?

 

I get this "issue" a lot. Next versions of Dopamine will ignore album artist and just group on album title.

HI all,

Dopamine 1.5.11 was just released. Mostly compatibility fixes in this one. I got a lot of reports of audio files not playing. This seemed caused by an incompatibility with 32 bits versions of Windows, and the infamous Windows N editions. I'd like to resolve some annoyances (like the album thingie above) in the next version.

 

This is the change log.

 

2018-03-21: Dopamine 1.5.11
 

- [Added] Added support for N editions of Windows (Even without Media Feature Pack)
- [Changed] Updated the Chinese (Simplified) translation
- [Changed] Updated the Croatian translation
- [Changed] Updated the Greek translation
- [Changed] Updated the Korean translation
- [Changed] Updated the Portuguese (Portugal) translation
- [Changed] Updated the Swedish translation
- [Fixed] Fixed a crash which happens just after startup on some editions of Windows 10
- [Fixed] Playback fails on 32 bit Windows versions

It doesn't display the empty lines in the lyrics anymore. (edit: When there are time stamps)  Not a major issue, but this seems to change from release to release.  I guess I need to timestamp the empty lines.

Don't mess up your lyrics yet. I'll try to find out how it should work tonight.

I've never given it much thought. Are suffle and random defined by this? (found on the web):

 

Random: if you have a list of 100 songs, a random number is chosen in the range of (1..100) and then the song representing that number is played next. Each time a selection is made from 100 songs.
Shuffle: selects 1 song as the method above and removes it from the 100 list. So the next selection of a random song is made from 99 songs. Next, 98 songs and so on, until the list is empty.

 

So with random, a song can be repeated .With shuffle, it won't, until the complete list has been played.

Is that how you mean it? I yes, Dopamine uses "shuffle", not "random".

 

Which is usually preferred by users: shuffle or random?

 

When using random, and pressing "Previous" does one expect the previously played song to play, or just another random song? Because for shuffle, most players seem to remember the previously played song.

In WinAmp there's a problem with 'shuffle' enabled on randomized list. When turning it off I found many long time unheard songs. So it would be nice to hear random songs :)

I'm fixing this issue. The LRC format has given me some headaches. But I'm now improving the LRC parser and adding some automated tests which will prevent behavior to change between releases.

I'll soon release a 15.5.14 beta 1, with these fixes. Give me a day or 2, as I'd like to spend some time getting this right.

      Spotify will acquire podcast hosting firm Megaphone
      by Jefferson Mangubat

      Spotify is beefing up its podcasting capabilities with a new acquisition move. The streaming service is acquiring Megaphone, a podcast hosting company that provides ad-insertion capabilities.

      As part of the deal, Spotify will open its proprietary ad insertion system called Streaming Ad Insertion to all podcasts currently hosted on Megaphone. The system was unveiled earlier this year with the goal of bringing more relevant ads to podcast listeners. While the technology works in the same way as other podcast ads, what sets it apart from the competition is the way it inserts ads in real time.

      Spotify noted that the acquisition marks the first time its ad insertion tech becomes available to a third-party platform. Dawn Ostroff, Chief Content & Advertising Business Officer at Spotify, said in a statement:

      The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. With the addition of Megaphone, Spotify is expanding its podcast ecosystem including a number of exclusive shows. In July, the company also launched support for video podcasts and tested sharing podcast quotes on social media. The acquisition is awaiting regulatory approvals for now.

      YouTube Music adds new personalization features and other changes
      by Jay Bonggolto

      YouTube announced today a new update to Music that introduces new personalization features. The music streaming app is adding a few changes to its Home tab that allow you to listen to a set of personalized playlists and access songs based on your current activity.

      The personalized playlists are called My Mix, providing up to seven new and personalized set of songs that will be available on the Home tab. The playlists contain songs from various artists, curated according to your taste. The curated lists also combine your favorite songs with new ones that might capture your interest. YouTube Music is also rebranding its Your Mix playlists into My Supermix, which blends your favorite songs in a single library.

      Another change to the app's Home tab is the activity bar that provides access to four types of activity, including Workout, Focus, Relax, and Commute. Tapping on each activity icon will lead you to a dedicated personalized homepage containing playlists that match what you're doing at a given moment. In addition, the Workout tab includes up to four new personalized mixes featuring songs you already like on top of new recommendations. These filters were first seen in September as part of a test.

      The latest changes are YouTube's way of taking on Spotify and other music streaming apps in terms of bringing personalization options to users. It remains to be seen whether these new features will help bolster YouTube Music's market adoption.

      Spotify now lets some users stream music on Apple Watch even without an iPhone
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Streaming music on Spotify through Apple Watch currently requires connecting to an iPhone. However, a new update to the music streaming app appears to be removing that requirement for some users.

      A report by Macerkopf suggests that multiple Spotify users are now able to directly play songs or podcasts using the app on Watch without needing an iPhone. This was after a test conducted by Spotify in September, the report says.

      This change basically makes the Spotify app for Watch more than just a remote control for the iPhone. That said, it's a bit late to the game, as Pandora and Apple Music already support that capability. Of course, streaming music on Spotify won't work without a Wi-Fi or cellular connection.

      In addition to the new capability, Spotify has also added a recently played section as well as access to your library when streaming on Watch. However, it seems you can't search for songs you wish to play as this feature is missing from the app. That means your streaming experience will largely depend on Siri, which will pull up specific titles for you. The new feature seems to be available in beta for now, so it may not be live for everyone just yet.

      Sony Music opens its catalog of sound clips to TikTok's community
      by Jay Bonggolto



      TikTok announced today that it has partnered with Sony Music Entertainment to give its community of creators access to sound clips from Sony's wide portfolio of music. Songs from both popular and emerging artists will be available on the TikTok app.

      As part of the deal, TikTok users will be able to use current hits, new releases, trending songs, and classic titles for their content. It's also expected to help promote Sony's new artists using TikTok's platform.

      Dennis Kooker, President of Global Digital Business and U.S. Sales for Sony Music Entertainment, said the partnership aims to "drive music discovery, expand opportunities for creativity and support artist careers.” Ole Obermann, Global Head of Music for TikTok, added:

      Sony Music isn't the only music studio to have partnered with TikTok to help artists and creators drive traffic to their content. Earlier this year, the video app also inked a deal with UK-based Merlin to make its vast catalog of songs from independent labels available to TikTok creators.
