Awesome.  Hey, I think the file renaming issue was happening in 1.5.14 as well...I think.

That's definitely possible. That cr*p piece of code has been in there like almost forever :) 

I'm currently rewriting how deletion of entries of a playlist file occurs. It'll work correctly in Preview 5.

These are the issues that are already fixed for preview 5:

 

 

- [Fixed] Fixed incorrect sorting for Artists and Genres because prefix "The" wasn't ignored anymore since preview 2

- [Fixed] Fixed invisible text on some context menus

Dopamine 2.0 Preview 5 is available!

 

Here’s the change log:

 

– [Changed] Updated the German translation
– [Changed] Updated the Swedish translation
– [Changed] Removed song covers in playlists. Loading so many images in memory causes a huge memory footprint.
– [Changed] Created and enabled the light theme
– [Fixed] Fixed incorrect sorting for Artists and Genres because the prefix “The” wasn’t ignored anymore since preview 2
– [Fixed] Fixed invisible text on some context menus
– [Fixed] Fixed an issue deleting entries from playlists, after files have been removed from or renamed on disk.
– [Fixed] Fixed playback order being alphabetical when enqueuing from Explorer (This would not have been a problem if humans and computers used the same sort order. One hour of my life I’ll never get back)
– [Fixed] Fixed inconsistent UI when the player reaches the minimum window size

Enjoy!

Hi, Raphaël.

I'm pretty happy about dopamine. I honestly think it's the best music player i've stumbled upon. I wanted to thank you for that first.

 

Now, you see... on page 98 of this thread, you mentioned that you fixed a bug related to MiniLyrics, and I wanted to ask for your help, because I can't make MiniLyrics detect your player.

 

Those two are compatible? If that's the case, can you please teach me or show me how to make it work? Thanks.

Hi,

 

Dopamine doesn't work together with Minilyrics. Dopamine however has a built-in lyrics downloader and displays the lyrics in the now playing screen.

Oh. Okay, thanks.

 

I just wanted to know if it did. Now that I know for sure that it doesn't, I'll  start attaching the .lrc files to the .mp3's "Unsynced Lyrics" Tag, That way, Dopamine can show a sort of... not-so-perfect karaoke (NOT BECAUSE OF DOPAMINE. Dopamine it's the best player for Windows 10; hands down. It's just the way .lrc file's internal scripting/encoding (?) works.)

 

(I have 500 songs. It's gonna take a while. That's why I wanted to know if I didn't have to, but now that you told me this, I know for sure I better start soon.)

 

Thank you.

Hi @Jackaluichi and @kukata,

 

I got both your messages, but I lost track of it. It's an error of my part, sorry for that. Thanks a lot for your efforts keeping these translations up to date. I'm processing them tonight and they'll appear in the next preview.

Now he needs to add Romulan and Klingon to the languages. :D

Great app none the less!

Always appreciate work from a person who created a nice app from nothing.

Looks like Project "Dopamine" is terminated. Am I right? Nothing new from December 2018 😢

No it's not. I did take a break from Dopamine for a few weeks though. Life has been rather challenging, and I wanted to spent my remaining time and energy on another project, which is now nearing completion.

I started the planning for the next Dopamine preview a few days ago and will proceed with development in a few days.

      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.

      Spotify is testing a cheaper, ad-supported plan that lets you infinitely skip songs
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Cheaper subscription tiers are becoming a thing among streaming platforms in an attempt to lure consumers into their paid services. Earlier, YouTube confirmed that it's testing Premium Lite in some European countries, allowing subscribers to watch videos uninterrupted by ads for €6.99 per month.

      Now, Spotify appears to be trialing a new cheaper plan called Spotify Plus that combines some capabilities of its free and paid tiers. For $0.99 per month, you can skip an unlimited number of songs per hour and listen to specific titles in an album or playlist. However, you'll have to bear with the ads just like in the free plan if you wish to gain access to those capabilities for a cheaper price.

      Spotify confirmed the report in a statement to The Verge:

      The current free tier allows you to skip only up to six songs per hour. And while you can select specific tracks to play in specific collections such as “Discover Weekly” and “Daily Mix”, you'll only be able to listen to shuffled songs in all other albums and playlists. If you want to avoid those restrictions, you can opt for the service's paid plan which currently costs $9.99 per month.

      Spotify, however, cautioned that the experimental tier may not necessarily roll out in its current form in the future. And if ever it does, it remains to be seen how the cheaper tier will help convert free users into paying subscribers.

      Amazon introduces The Golden Era Vinyl subscription service
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Vinyl records, the last bastion of analog music in this digital world, has been making a strong comeback. Last year, over 27 million LPs were sold in the US. It is a clear indication that not only the nostalgic folks but also the newer generation has a fascination for vinyl records. To make most of this trend, Amazon, which already lists hundreds of thousand records in its catalog, has announced a new vinyl subscription service.

      Dubbed as 'Vinyl of the Month Club: The Golden Era', it offers a single album on vinyl every month. For those not in the know, the golden era of vinyl refers to the 60s and 70s. The service seems like a good idea for young vinyl enthusiasts planning to build their collection. Amazon claims that a monthly record is picked by its experts at Amazon Music. So far, Amazon has revealed that subscribers will get a chance to enjoy the work of legendary artists such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, and Fleetwood Mac.



      Upon subscribing to the service, you can find out the current month's album from Amazon's orders page. If you already own that album or it doesn't interest you, simply skip the month's package from the 'Manage Your Subscriptions' page. Amazon also allows subscribers to return a vinyl as long as its packing is intact.

      Amazon's Vinyl of the Month Club subscription costs $24.99 per month. The pricing is not bad considering that the cost of popular LPs varies wildly. For instance, Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti currently sells for $34.69 on Amazon.

      Amazon's idea seems inspired by the Columbia Record Club from the 50s. Conceived in 1955, it was the first venture to offer music through the mail. The company offered a complimentary record to boost its membership numbers. It was a huge success back then as the company was shipping over seven million vinyl records by 1957.
