Had a quick play around with it looks a lot more promising.

 

Only a couple of things that are bugging me

 

The crossfade isn't working great and even though I've set it to remember settings when it restarts the setting are back to default.

 

It doesn't work well remembering what songs it has already played it seemed to want to keep playing Kajagoogoo after it had already played.

 

Other than that it played nicely for the hour or so i spent testing it.

Hi garybaldy,

I'll take a look at what's going on with the save settings.

What exactly seems to be the problem with the crossfade?

I don't yet have anything setup to prevent something like that. I do have a "DJ Rules" option planned and on the roadmap, but I still need to make sure I have all the bugs in this version fixed before I continue on with adding new features.

 

Thanks for the input.

Just couldn't get the crossfade to work still had lots of issues with silence between tracks.

You will need artist and title repeat rules putting into the program to make it useable for most radio stations as it's part of the DMCA about tracks not repeating within a certain time but I'm sure as it's on your to do list it will be coming into the program.

No problem saint.

 

Tried again this morning. Still not working for v1.2 Alpha 4. But, I think I am getting closer. Compiler in Ubuntu seems to not like one of the dlls I'm using. Monday or Tuesday night I'll try to replace the components that use that dll with a standard winforms component and remove the dll. I'll post the results here then.

One part of that I think I have fixed (will be in the next release). I increased the timer interval 10 fold that is used to check the status of the songs. The cross fading seems to be triggered more accurately now. But, I think I need to add an option to trim silence at the end/start of tracks. I have a few tracks that fade out with 5-10 seconds of silence at the end which I imagine could be an issue for some folks.

Yep. This will require a bit more work but I should have something set up for that by version 1.3 I hope.
