The feature does work here. Be aware that it is only supposed to work when you see this screen (Nothing is playing):

hi thanks for the awesome player. just installed 2.0 and im seeing high bitrate files lagging. when they play fine in other players (even with dopamine open and paused.)

the files im refrencing are over 1000 kbps.

they play fine in dopamine 1.5.14 though so im back to that. i dont think i can legally send you the files though.

 

heres the media info if it helps https://pastebin.com/gWzLdacn

 

i dont know what you need to fix this. let me know and ill do my best

I have an idea what is causing this. I change the decoder a while ago. No-one complained during the previews or betas. So I assumed it was OK. I'll roll back that change and release 2.0.1. Then, decoding will be the same as in 1.5.14.

 

Edit: I created issue  #1093, and will use that issue to revert the decoder.

I apologize for the stupid question.  How do I get to this screen? When the player is played, there is always a song paused there.

Don't worry, it is not a stupid question. That screen is shown initially (after adding files the first time). The only way to go back to it, is to dequeue all songs form now playing.

so Raph, now that 2.0 has hit final do you plan 3.0 to be the multi-platform rewrite?

 

should be interesting to see what Dopamine is capable of written in electron :)

Yes indeed: 3.0 is the multi platform rewrite. Supported on Windows and Linux. Theoretically also on Mac. Although someone else would have to build and test it (as I don't own a Mac).

I'm interested too. I haven't done all the research yet. But seeing as web technologies have a lot of multi-media capabilities, I see a promising future for Dopamine.

With version 2.0 out of the way, development on 3.0 should get a boost.

 

Edit:

 

Dopamine code and issues were moved to https://github.com/digimezzo/dopamine-windows

 

This is the Dopamine 3.0 GitHub: https://github.com/digimezzo/dopamine

For all feature requests, please log an issue over there. I don't always guess right how people like to listen to their music. So if anyone has suggestions, don't hesitate to create issues via GitHub.

One idea: Add a button to open the collection from the small players (Nano, Cover and Micro).  To avoid having to switch to the main one when changing an album.

Any plans to look at gapless playback for 3.0?

It depends on how easy it is to add. No promises yet.
