Is there any chance this could be made to work on Mac/Linux? Perhaps using Mono or something like that?

 

Use this on my Windows PC and would love to have it on my Mac too.

could always run it in wine; it's rather stable now a days :)

.NET might give some issues. I failed to get 1 of my applications to work in Wine because of a .NET issue. I didn't spend too much time troubleshooting though.

Smart playlists finally work! It's about damn time, as I really really didn't enjoy adding that feature :) (it took about a month to add...) This picture illustrates the file format that it generates and the icons which differentiate static and smart playlists.

Hey there, great Player.

 

Just a quick note, Preview 1 as well as preview 2 may have a memory leak.

 

Trying to import a 20.000 songs collection from an HDD overloads the memory. Seen some 12GB in my task manager by dopamine and force closed it.

 

Other than that, is my app of choice for music

Not sure if this is a bug or an intentional behavior change.

 

In Artists view, select artist with multiple albums. All albums from that artist show correctly. However, clicking an album here doesn't appear to filter the songs list to the right.

I wasn't aware of that issue. I'll have a look today and will let you know what can be done.

 

Edit: I found the issue. What a silly mistake :) I'll release a preview 3 tonight.

Yes, tried that with preview 1 and end up with that problem and when I tried with preview 2 same thing happened. I don't load Dopamine preview cause it resumes loading those songs and eventually the same memory-thing happens.

 

Whatever more info you might need just tell me!

I recently did some folder renaming in my music collection, the result was invalid entries in my playlists (which was expected) and in dopamine's library (unexpected).  I thought I had it set up to find new songs on boot, but I'm manually doing that now (going to "add music" and hitting "refresh now").

 

Annotation.thumb.png.4984f8ff9859c613685f8b033c11b4a4.png

 

So after manually updating the library the song can be added back into the playlist, but the invalid entries in the playlist cannot be removed using dopamine...which is new to this preview i think.  I think the library not updating issue was in preview 2.

 

A fresh profile didn't help.

 

Also this:

...I didn't even know this menu existed until I found this visual bug.

Thanks for reporting this. I'll look into it for the next preview. The issue was logged here: https://github.com/digimezzo/Dopamine/issues/896

That's weird. Does the memory thing happen while the collection is indexing?

Could you send me your log file? It's in folder %appdata%\dopamine

Using Preview 3 but I noticed the following earlier.

 

Artists with The in the name:

Artist list is split into 3 sections. A->Tha, Then T with all the 'The ... something' artists ... then Thi -> Z.
I prefer the sorting of old, where 'The' is essentially removed in the list, so The Stone Roses are sorted under S for example. Is this a bug or an intended behaviour change? Any ways to switch back if this is intended?

 

In Artists view .. Select Artist, Albums show for that artist, but under the Album name is shows Unknown Artist. I assume this is something to do with Artist/Album Artist? If the Artist field is populated and the Album Artist is blank, could we show the Artist field instead of Unknown?

 

Cheers!

The memory she uses is pretty good for me.  It starts with 80-90mb and scrolls up to 170mb. Maybe more sometimes.  Quite often it crashes and forced to stop by task maneger. Here is an example.

After looking into it, that setting seems to only check whether folders specifically added to the collection settings are still there, but it doesn't check subfolders under those folders...which doesn't make sense.  [edit: actually it's only when I rename a folder]

 

Any updates on this? :

I guess removing or renaming the dopamine.db file will stop the indexing, since it removes the folders from the collection settings.

P. S. I have wrongly expressed myself.

The memory it uses is too much. It starts with 80-90mb and scrolls up to 170mb. Maybe more sometimes.  In same conditions Groove (for example) uses at maximum 70MB. Quite often it crashes and forced to stop by task manager. Here is an example.

if I remember previous discussions correctly that memory use is partially false because it's actually .net reserving extra memory; not that the memory is being actively used.

 

but Raphael should be able to confirm if that is still the case or not :)

Seems like I'm the only one not liking the Artist sort on Dopamine 2 at all.

 

Downgraded back to 1.5.14

You may have actually found a bug with how that list is being displayed, it looks like it's intended for those artists to appear higher in the list than they are.  For example, "The Chainsmokers" is labled C on the list... under T.  So there is two C's on the list.

 

 

Okay, I also want to point out that you can reproduce the playlist bug that I'm seeing by removing and adding songs to a playlist (.M3U).  It's loosing track of the playlist order and doesn't remove the correct song after that.

Hi everyone. Sorry for the delayed answer. I've lost track of this post. Notifications seemed to be disabled, so I didn't get any notification when something new was posted. That has now been fixed.

 

@jasondefaoite The artist sorting is not supposed to behave like that. This is a bug. It should work like in the 1.5.x releases. I've created this issue on my GitHub and will fix that for preview 5: https://github.com/digimezzo/Dopamine/issues/907

 

@kukata and @Brandon H While .NET indeed reserves more memory than is actually used by the application, there was a very nasty memory leak in the version 2.0 releases (it might have been in 1.5 also, but I'm not sure). This leak only happens while playing with the window minimized. It doesn't happen when the window is visible. The leak is fixed in Preview 4.

 

@Ned I'm going to put your reports together in a issue on Github after this post. This will require some more investigation.

 

Last but not least! -> Dopamine 2.0 Preview 4 has just been released. This is the change log:

 

– [Changed] Updated the Bulgarian translation
– [Changed] Updated the Hungarian translation
– [Changed] Updated the Chinese (Simplified) translation
– [Fixed] Fixed unresponsive UI when rating songs
– [Fixed] Fixed a nasty memory leak which occurs when the player is minimized
– [Fixed] Fixed Last.fm scrobbling not working anymore since Preview 2
– [Fixed] Fixed “Unknown artists” and “Unknown genres” categories remain visible even when empty
– [Fixed] Fixed a crash which occurs when trying to enable the system notification on Windows 10 N

      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.
