Hello! When you run multiple files that are not in the collection, the load begins to go high. This was the case in previous versions as well. For example, if I run 14 files twice and cpu slowly starts to go high , it is as if the processor is overloaded. And it's not.

What do you mean by running files? Could tell me what exactly you're doing? Thanks :)

I select 14 songs from a folder. After a while I open more 14 in the same way and it starts to feel slowing down. It's like overloading the processor.  But this is not true. I must restart the player.

With the Galaxy Book S and the Surface Pro X on the horizon, are there plans to compile this for ARM, or will it already run natively on ARM without using the 32-bit emulation?

It will have to be compiled for ARM. I'll have to do some research. At this point, I have no idea if compiling for ARM is even possible. Also, I'm relying on 3rd party DLL's which are not compiled for ARM.

Hey everyone,

 

Dopamine 2.0 Preview 14 has just been released. Feature-wise, nothing has changed. I did fix a bug and reverted to a lighter version of the audio engine. This is done in an attempt to resolve a high CPU usage bug which plagues some users. Lets see if this helps. This is the change log:

 

- [Fixed] Folders screen doesn't respect order of songs in the folder
- [Changed] Removed FFmpeg decoder

does Electron cover ARM at all? might be able to get it working with your rewrite if so; maybe have it use some alternate DLLs when running on ARM if the owners don't want to recompile the ones you use currently.

 

Would love to use Dopamine on a Windows 10 on ARM laptop if I get one sometime in the future (probably won't be for a few years; waiting for the desktop grade snapdragon chips to mature a little more; the 8cx chip is a large step in the right direction :))

As far as i could see in my short research this evening, ARM seems supported by Electron. That would be good news for Dopamine 3.0.

If it's not possible now, I know it will be, but I'm pretty sure it's already available as an option.  There's little point worrying about it today, because neither devices are available today, and owners of older, less powerful ARM on Windows devices aren't clamoring for Dopamine (afaik).  However, November 5 isn't too far off.  I wouldn't expect you to have it ready on day one, but if you could consider compiling for ARM in the future that would be awesome.  In the meantime, it should be able to (hypothetically) run the x86 version, emulated, assuming you're not compiling 64-bit only at this point.

 

I really want a Surface Pro X, and I'll probably get one, but I don't expect you to compile for ARM just to make one user happy. 

 

I'm also super-excited about the Linux release.

I missed the part about DLLs, though. I didn't realize they were architecture-specific. If it turns out to be too much work, I'm sure running the x86 version will be acceptable. I'm just concerned about performance, but it's just a music player, not a AAA $80 video game.

Unfortunately, the problem of high resource use remains. When playing more than 40-50 files sequentially (from an external folder). Tried on a laptop and desktop.

Could you tell me exactly how you are opening these songs? I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "external folder". Are you opening a folder in Windows Explorer en selecting "Play with Dopamine"?. I can't reproduce this problem here, so explicit steps would really help. Thanks.

@Raphaël G.Why not try to run your software via some static analysis tool e.g. PVS Studio (offered free to Open Source projects) and then try to find some memory leaks or other bugs?

I select them from a folder and choose to run with Dopamine. Not added to player playlist. If added to the player there is no problem. But that is how he played over 40 songs in a row.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try it out, as soon as they send the trial license I requested :)

Thanks for the precise description. It's a real pity that, even following these instructions, I cannot reproduce this issue here. I currently have no idea what is going on. :( Even the code which is executed when performing these actions, is not doing anything CPU intensive.

Could you enable the option "Enable default multimedia key support" and see if that helps?

 

Some explanation concerning this new option:

 

To my great joy, there are multiple mechanisms to control media keys in Windows (Why make it easy for developers...). On some computers, only mechanism 1 works, for others, only mechanism 2. Then, last but not least, are those for which both mechanisms are triggered when pressing media keys. Great fun. So, previous versions of Dopamine (until Beta 1) tried to be smart about this (to be compatible with everyone) and supported both mechanisms at once. For the people where both mechanisms work and both trigger media keys, there was a problem. Play and pause would negate each other. Next and previous would be triggered twice. So I had to split both mechanisms up and added the option "Enable default multimedia key support", which essentially toggles between both mechanisms. When this option is disabled, Dopamine listens to low level Windows media key presses. When enabled, Dopamine listens to appcommand media key presses, which are usually triggered by multimedia keyboards and headsets (e.g. Logitech). The name for this options comes from Winamp (I haven't invented it).

Yeah, it works now.  Thanks.  I didn't think to look for an option in settings.

 

One more thing though.  There is a visual bug when playing though a smart playlist with shuffle enabled.  It goes to the next song in the playlist, then (sometimes) briefly scrolls down to the bottom of the playlist for a split second, then goes back to the playing song.  This doesn't effect playback at all, it's just a visual bug.  It doesn't happen on a normal playlist.

 

The playlist is a 162 song favorites playlist

Excellent! (that it now works)

Thanks for the issue report. I've created an issue on GitHub: https://github.com/digimezzo/dopamine-windows/issues/1086

      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."

      If you have an Android TV OS device or the new Chromecast with Google TV, you’ll also benefit from the following additions:

      Google said it’s not going to stop with these updates; in the coming months, it will allow YouTube Music Premium users to continue playing music in the background even if they’ve exited the app, similar to the mobile app’s functionality. If you’ve not used YouTube Music yet, Google says you can find it in the YouTube app on smart TVs.
