Fantastic stuff, dude. Really like the user friendly creation of colour schemes (and yes, I totally made it blue, because I love blue). Eagerly awaiting support for .wav, but I'm very pleased with what you've done here. Heck, even the 'Coming soon' screens look nice.  (Y)

Just installed.  Thanks for the early release!

 

Recommendations: Implement the option to group in the Album pane by year or album artist and choose to sort either ascending or descending.  Also it would be nice if you could right-click an album or song and have an option pop up to view in Explorer (which would open an Explorer window to the location of that album or song). Sorting by album artist would be a helpful option, too, as opposed to album title.

Feature Suggestion:

 

Option to have the mini player window float on top of other windows.

 

Cheers for an awesome app. Working fine on Windows 10 TP2 :)

That will happen. I have some technical problems to solve first though (mostly performance issues when grouping in the Albums list).

Good idea! Will be possible in the next build.

You know what's bad? It actually already supports decoding .wav's. I just block it by extension (no idea why I never included it). I'll add support for wav in the next build.

I love this music player, but one quick question. Do you think it would be possible to add a feature(s) to sync to itunes for idevices, or even android? if so I would use this exclusively. Awesome work man.

So, I installed it. Loving it so far. It would be nice to have as option to go to the now playing screen automatically when you start a song. Also having an automatic play queue (it queues the following tracks in playlist or folder tree) there on the now playing screen. There is a slight glitch on the play/pause button. The right side is missing one column of pixels. I am running Windows in 120% DPI.

Thanks! As for syncing with itunes or android: that's not planned yet.

Thanks for reporting the play/pause issue. I've logged a bug and it will be fixed soon.

 

What do you have in mind for the now playing queue? I'm interested to know. At the moment, now playing plays all songs which are in the same list as where you double-clicked. But it doesn't display what it will play. Would you like to see all songs in the queue from the now playing screen, or should it display the next song in line? Or did you have another idea?

Basically I opened the application, double clicked on the first artist/first track in the list then hit Skip and it crashed.

Thanks! The log doesn't tell me anything, that's not your fault, but mine :). There's still some crash handling that didn't make it in this build. I'll add it for the next build. And if it then crashes, we should get more info.

Again, well done sir on this app. Loving it. It's my default music app now :)

 

Couple of points....

 

First, the navigation list on the left side of the app, the curve on the bottom of the dopamine logo is flattened for each of the A, B, C etc list headings. It might be due to the display scaling (I'm on 125%).

 

dpd26b.jpg

 

For those with a long list of artists, scrolling this list is a little troublesome. So, nicely done with the keyboard shortcuts here. Press G for example, drops me into G on the list. Excellent.

 

However, would be nice to have some love for the mouse also :)

 

How about more inspiration from Windows Phone? Click on one of the headers in the list brings up the alphabet + 0-9/# character (so 27 icons). Selecting one of the 27 icons drops you straight to that part of the list.

Track8 (no longer in development) on the iPhone/iPad is a good example, see ~ 25sec mark

Just a thought. But loving the app as is :)

 

Cheers

Thanks for reporting the artists headers cut off at 125%! I fixed some UI issues at 125% yesterday, but missed that one. It is fixed now :)

And for the mouse lovin: great idea -> task created.

Alright everyone. This is what's been done since the last build:

 

- Fixed GUI glitches when using an item size of 125% in Windows
- Added support for .wav files
- Added Green and Yellow ColorSchemes
- Improved logging for crashes
- Added an option to keep the mini player on top of other windows

i tried to add tracks by simply moving my "thisPC/music folder into folders and for some reason for me, it isn't adding the music. I have to go down each folder tree just to the folder where my MP3's are located and select that file.

 

I have a rather large MP3 collection and alot of folders. But I'll take my time until it gets resolved. great app.

Could you send me the logfile? I don't have a clue yet why this would happen.

There needs to be a way to select all artists/album (or unselect an artist or album) because as soon as you click on an artist or album on the left the search box will only search the currently selected artist or album until you close the player.

 

edit: then I hit ctrl+a...

Indeed, you can select all :) And you can unselect by clicking an already selected artist or album.

its not creating an error and where do I locate such log files? I have a veterans affairs exam right now and I'll come back later to address this issue with you. thanks.

 

The logfile is located here: C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Dopamine\Log

      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.
