:B: Rex

for the musix player i had asked if you could include support for last.fm scrobbling

it would be nice if you could get that working either natively or via a plugin

i know there are other main functions you need to work on first before something like this

Change what font? The title of the window?

There are no audio options yet, except setting the latency.

 

 

 

Have you released the new build yet? I've had a look and it still shows build 100?

 

Also, I see the option to check for updates is still there, is this feature fully working from the start? I follow this thread so most of the time I'll find out here if you've done a new build anyway.

 

 

 

 

I second this, If I select an Artist on the left, it narrows the list down to just that Artist, but then it will only play the songs in that list. There is no easy way to make the application (that I've found) go back and display all songs from all artists again

Update check is fully working. I didn't release an update yet, it needs more testing. I was just informing of the work I did since build 100. But I might release it tonight. Especially the logging part is important now, to be able to track issues some of you have been having.

 

If you click on an already selected artist, it gets unselected and shows the albums for all artists again. Alternatively you can press ctrl+a and all artists are selected and all albums are shown.

You can select multiple artists by holding ctrl and clicking.

I didn't forget about it :) But indeed, other stuff to worry about first.

I made a portable version with ThinApp and it works perfectly and stores the settings in the directory its run from. Maybe worth looking into.

 

Liking the look of this, nice one.

 

Dopmamine (contrary to musiX) was built with portability in mind. So it's indeed probably just working. I just didn't have time to test anything out in portable mode. That's why I left this feature out of the changelog.

Great job, man!  :laugh:  I've just downloaded Dopamine and I'm giving it a go on Windows 10 TP Build 9926 :)

 

Sorry, because I haven't read the entire thread and don't know if it's been spotted by anyone before, but when you hover the mouse pointer over the minimise and maximise buttons, the tooltip shows the same message in both cases "minimise".

 

Just my two cents. I'll keep on testing it!

 

Thanks again! :D

That hasn't been reported yet. Thanks! It's now fixed for the next build.

Build 107 is available for download. If your update check is enabled, you'll get a notification. Otherwise, download from here: http://raphaelgodart.tumblr.com/downloads

 

These are the changes since build 100:

 

- 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
- Improved Synapse indexer robustness
- Removed the title on the main window
- Improved the search (you can now use multiple words to fine tune your search)
- Fixed the window tooltips

 

The main window now looks like this:

By the way. I hate the look of the search box right now. But I've added it quickly, because a search is important in my opinion. In other words: it will most likely change in the future.

And final post for today. To give you an idea how I organize feedback, this is a list of my current tasks for the dopamine project:

This is simply a fantastic project you have here.  I'm so glad you are sticking with it.  This player simply blows everything else away.  Thanks for continuing to improve it and sharing it with us.

Weird, in my case it worked fine - opened an Internet browser window and I grabbed the update. Have you tried again to see if you can replicate the issue again?

Quick question, does this support synchronisation at all (eg: other libraries, or portable devices) or is it purely a player?

This is beautiful, I'll surely watch this project closely. Right now I'm using MusicBee as my audio player (and it's great, nothing to complain about here), but I think I like your UI more. I only have one regret - that I don't have something like this in Linux. :(

 

P.S. Does this app search for covers online? If so, what are the sources?

What is your default browser? I've read that this can happen, thought I put enough safeties around it. Do you mean it wasn't logged in the logfile?

There is currently no sync, it's just a player.

I've been using MusicBee just before starting to code musiX. MusicBee is the only player that I found usable, but still too cluttered for my needs. That's why I wanted to create a very simple player myself.

Ah Linux. If I had this idea 5 years ago, it would have been a Linux audio player (I was a Linux fanboy then :))

 

No cover searching yet, but I'd like to add that eventually. Which sources would you recommend?

Hi all,

 

Small update on progress (no build released yet):

 

- Improved Synapse indexer robustness
- Added option to organize Tracks alphabetically or by Album
- Fixed some UI bugs
- Added an checkbox to the installer to launch Dopamine after installation

I'm not so happy about the background behind the checkbox not being transparent. But it seems (after lots of confirmations online) that Windows Installer is just bad like that...

I think it was mentioned somewhere but I'll say it just in-case it wasn't as I can't see it.

 

With MusiX I used to be able to open it, hit play using the media keys on my keyboard and it would just instantly play from the default playlist (all music), I miss this :(

 

Atm I have to double click the first track in all artist.

That's correct! It is currently missing, but planned. I'm confused from what playlist I should make it play. By default when dopamine starts it shows all songs: should it play from there? Or should I keep track of the last queue (=the list which was played the last time the app was used) and play those songs? Or maybe I could provide an option for those that want it to remember the last queue?

For some reason, 360 Security reports these files as malware. I'm sure there's nothing wrong, just wanted to let you know.

      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.
