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!

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.

      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."
