Re: Suggestion: Behaviour of "Artist" column

Have you tried adding the 'Album Artist' column? First thing I tried. Unfortunately most of the time (i.e. when there's no album artist) it doesn't display anything and is just a big waste of space. Stephen, your solution with the three columns sounds great to me, would circumvent the need to have ...

Suggestion: Behaviour of "Artist" column

I have a suggestion concerning how the "Artist" column in the library view should behave. First, it may be helpful to explain, that I have my music sorted in the following way: (text in angle brackets denotes a tag field) <album artist>(if present, else just <artist>)/ <date> - <album>/ <tracknumber...

I've just added reading and writing of TXXX frames for ReplayGain- I'll post a new unstable later tonight or tomorrow. I agree the RG scanner is a bit slow- I will do some code profiling and see if I can speed it up. Was r820 supposed to be the build including this, because it's not showing the val...

Thanks!

Would it be possible to have the "progress bar" really display a progress? It's quite useless if it's just an animation that looks like a progress bar. :wink:

* It may be wise to consider the reading/writing of TXXX frames for ReplayGain metadata as well. Apps for power users on Windows like Foobar and Winamp use this rather neat solution. Power users on Windows are very likely to use Foobar or Winamp and have large collections of files with these frames...

In theory that's a great improvement and it looks complete to me! :)
You'll get a real opinion once I get my hands on a Mac again!
Play gets really good really fast.

Hm, I don't want to discourage anyone to use Play or to post here, but have you already had a closer look at Cog, Remain?
On first glance (last time I played with it, is some time ago) it does aout the same as Play, only without the library. Maybe you could use Cog, at least for the time being?

Another alternative would be to make Play add only files from certain directories. Something in the line of: "Only add to library if found in:" and a dialog to choose specific folders. It doesn't disable the library altogether, but it keeps it from growing in an uncontrolled way. That way if you pul...

Hi, this is my first post. Before I try to say something relevant, just let me express my deepest gratitude for you developing (nearly) exactly the player I need for my upcoming switch to Mac. I'd also be strongly in favour of having an option in preferences to not automatically include every played...
