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.

Thanks man,  I have a possible feature request for a future version.  The download lyrics from section could be a sortable list.  Netease lyrics have timestamps available in some cases and I would like it to search that site first, followed by any others.

 

Another small bug:  my lyrics download timeout is Language_none seconds.  I'm not sure how long that is.

I've created an issue for the lyrics provider idea: https://github.com/digimezzo/Dopamine/issues/734

Lately I have been moving a lot of large files from hard drive to hard drive and I notice while doing this that Dopamine starts skipping or having issues playing or retrieving the music file from the hard drive while its copying other files... is there a way to have an option where we can increase the memory cache size for dopamine to alleviate some of this?

 

Thank you!

You could try increasing the latency setting in Settings > Playback. I'm not sure if that will fully solve this issue though.

Hi everyone,

 

Dopamine 1.5.14 Release Candidate 1 has been released today. This is the change log:

 

– [Changed] Updated the Swedish translation
– [Fixed] Further improved scaling for narrower monitors

 

That last entry in the change log seems crazy in this day and age. But I have people using Dopamine on vertical monitors :)

@Ned How is lyrics support treating you in the 1.5.14 betas?

 

Enjoy!

Sorry, I don't typically beta test.  How many betas did you release because the last one crashed on me.

 

Two beta's, okay.  I'll try this one out.  I get a crash when I edit lyrics on a song with no lyrics.  Hmm, it's happened once.  Hard to reproduce.

Download lyrics from options are greyed out. I can't select or deselect anything.   Deleting the settings.xml fixed that...annoying.

 

... {after lots of edits}  Looks like if I right click on the lyrics screen too fast after startup it crashes.  Also the file has to have no lyrics in it.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for trying this out! I realized that testing on my computer doesn't make me discover all possible issues. That's why I re-introduced beta's.

I just fixed all issues you mentioned. Sorry for having them in the first place.

As for the lyrics not being found for "Untitled track", I suspect that the title "Untitled" causes the issue. I'm not sure yet. For other tracks NetEase support works fine.

 

Edit: another question: is the white line issue for timed lyrics resolved on your side?

I just want to say - if I haven't already - this is incredible. I've been using this as my main player since its release and it works brilliantly for me. @Raphaël G.I'm astonished at the work that you continue to put in to this program, and given it was a hobby to begin with I think we can all look to you as a great example of what can be achieved when we put our minds to something that interests us.

Hi @Nick H., thanks a lot for the kind words. This kind of feedback means a lot to me, and is partly what keeps the project going. The other part comes from my inexhaustible need to learn new stuff, to learn better ways to program and to support users. It's challenging, but I need this, apparently :).

Will this be fixed by then? 

 

 

?

Yes

 

Edit: however I want to add that the fix will be a workaround for user's which are, essentially, mixing up the artists and album artists tag. There is no AI to detect which tracks are from 1 album. It has to happen based on tag values. Dopamine 1 groups tracks which have the same Album artist and album title. Dopamine 2 will group all tracks which have the same album title. So, I can see the next complaint I'll get: why are tracks from 2 albums which have the same album title grouped into 1 album?

Yep exactly. You're putting in a fix that isn't required because someone can't tag their artists properly! (Don't do it ;))

 

People that have albums titled "Greatest Hits" Won't be happy!

looking good Raphael

 

any chance of you publishing an entry on the Window Store now that they allow WIN32 x86/x64 entries?

the extra level of sandboxing would be nice; even for an audio player :)

I've long postponed "fixing" this, as the current behavior is the only correct one. But the amount of complaints and questions I get about the current behavior is just exhausting. I've spent already too much time explaining this. So the behavior change will happen, for the sake of my mental health :) I'm still brainstorming how I can make this optional though. As I smell trouble already.

I can't say for sure. I've attempted publishing Dopamine to the store already, but the process is tiresome and includes contact with a Microsoft support engineer. I abandoned it after a few weeks. Maybe I'll try again in the future. Hopefully the process of adding a win32 app to the store will be more streamlined by then.

      20th Anniversary of iPod and a look at an early prototype
      by Moshe Jacobs

      October 23rd, 2021 marked the 20th anniversary of the most iconic music player in history, the iPod. Apple's once leading music product has seen sales of over 400 million units to date as reported by Cult of Mac. Although there had been rumors swirling about a Fall 2021 revision of the iPod Touch, nothing has come of it quite yet. Even though the iPad has been relegated to a product buried in the Apple Store online not immediately apparent to purchase, it has seen such popularity through the years that more than 10 models in total ranging from the original iPods, iPod minis, iPod shuffles, and iPod nanos have been released.

      Blog writer from Panic, Cabel Sasser, has shared a first look at a very early prototype of the original iPod intended to mask the actual product design while development was occurring. Having seemingly aged through the years, what was most likely a white body has now taken on a yellowish appearance.



      Despite the behemoth size of this unit, it shares a display identical in size to the original consumer iPod. The prototype unit also included a standard headphone port as well as FireWire like the original iPod. A large scroll wheel was featured at the top left of the unit which, according to one of the founders of the iPod Tony Fadell, was poorly functional.

      Other parts of the button interface include an Up, Down, Left, and Right selection that may have corresponded to Menu, Play/Pause, Back, and Forward respectively.

      Despite the lack of similarity in physical aesthetics between this prototype and the original iPod released, the unit does date to September 3rd, 2001 indicating a date close to the release of the original iPod on October 23rd, 2001.

      For more pictures, and a much more detailed look at the prototype unit, check out the Panic's blog.

Properties dialog: deferred logging of user-entered field names for the dropdown list until the tags are saved, effectively preventing typos from being remembered. Fixed a bug causing alt+f4 (and possibly other keyboard events) to be disregarded if mouse pointer is above specific interactive portion of a window (list controls, buttons in editboxes). Improved handling of files with malformed APE tags - some files were entirely unplayable. More thorough 'remove tags' for Vorbis, Opus and Musepack. Fixed text truncation in ReplayGain Scanner preferences page. Download page: foobar2000 1.6.8 Beta 1 | 4.5 MB (Freeware)

      YouTube is forcing popular Discord music bot Rythm offline, millions impacted
      by Usama Jawad

      YouTube has recently been on the warpath against Discord music bots. For those unaware, this piece of technology allows users to play music from YouTube videos on Discord servers. Citing copyright violations, Google first shut down the Groovy bot a couple of weeks ago, and now, it is forcing Rythm offline.

      Rythm is a massively popular music bot which was installed on 20 million Discord servers and was being used by over 560 million people. Yoav, who is the developer behind the bot, stated that the service was being powered by over 4TB of RAM and 1,000 CPU cores. Google's cease-and-desist letter states that Rythm should be shut down within seven days, and the developers are complying and shuttering the service on September 15.

      The shutdown does not only impact 560 million end-users but also the bot's developer who was involved in this project in a full-time capacity. In a statement to The Verge, Yoav went on to say that:

      The bot's official website echoes similar sentiments, but an interesting note over there also emphasizes that work is underway on "something brand new in the music space that will revolutionize how we all listen to music". As such, the Rythm team has advised users to keep the bot installed on their servers. It remains to be seen what the developers have in store, keeping in view YouTube's copyright restrictions.
