Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Thanks waker. Your effort seems excellent so far. It almost fills all my needs already and what i like about it most besides the interface is that it doesnt use additional layers of complexity and that its VERY configurable.
I hope that never changes.

The only issues i had was the 25% utilization of my cores from one of the deadbeef threads.
Also as some point it would be nice to have much less debug output on screen.

Other than that deadbeef is the only GTK+2 based audio player available today i'll ever consider using. Thanks again.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I like this player a lot, but I have a little issue with it. I've got a big library of music and when I want to scroll the playlist to the bottom (of from the bottom up), it segfaults with this error:

deadbeef-main[30256]: segfault at 8a321e54 ip b75333af sp afc845e4 error 4 in libc-2.11.1.so[b74c5000+145000]
deadbeef-main[31766]: segfault at e ip b756de5d sp a9ebd0a4 error 4 in libpthread-2.11.1.so[b7566000+15000]

I use an AMD Athlon 64 processor, arch 32bit.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

So, I've installed deadbeef and enjoying it a lot.  How do I find out all possible cli commands short of guessing?  man deadbeef and info deadbeef aren't yielding any results.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I installed deadbeef a while ago and it's pretty nice...however, I have one question. I can't figure out the command to feed Thunar to get a cd to play automatically in deadbeef. Right now it's

deadbeef --play %d

and that doesn't work. When I try something like

deadbeef --play /media/cd0

(or similar on the command line, deadbeef comes up but has nothing in the queue and doesn't play anything. Has anyone else figured this out? Is there some sort of bash file or something I might need? Any help is greatly appreciated.


Clever Linux quote.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Is it just me or is DeaDBeeF's search function behaving strangely?
I expect the search panel to narrow down the list of found items to only the entries whose artist name and/or track title contain _all_ tokens (separated by whitespace) entered in the search field.

For example if I want to jump to the track 'Trace Bundy - Bristlecone' I would open the search box and write 'trace bun bristl' and hit enter. That would work in Goggles' Music Manager, Rhythmbox and Audacious (those I've used and behave like that).
But what happens in DeaDBeeF is:
type string 'trace', press space, list is narrowed to all tracks containing that string in artist/title;
type 'bun', list is narrowed to Trace Bundy tracks;
type space, list is emptied and i am sad ;(

Any thoughts on that?

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

yasen, no, it doesn't work like that.

it searches for the string that you enter. no tokens, no whitespaces. just entire string.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

A very suitable player, indeed reminds me of foobar.

Anyway: any chance of a JACK plugin?

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

my favourite player at the moment, but more shortcuts such as "clear playlist" (or a clear playlist button for each playlist) or "add folder to playlist" would be useful

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I'm wondering whether I'm the only one who can't open .m3u files. roll
Otherwise your player is great, thanks waker.

------------------
I see, at least it isn't a bug in my system.

And huge thanks for the .cue support!!!

m3u (and pls) playlists have limited support -- for opening internet radio streams.
however there are plans to add better support.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I know I'm being a total noob, but I ran ./configure , make and make install, but deadbeef didn't go to a /bin/ folder, so I can only run ik from the folder I compiled it in.

Ah, yes, there it is.
But it's the only file there, and /usr/local/bin/ isn't part of the path environment variable

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

/usr/local is the default prefix when you run configure
if you wanted to install to /usr -- you should've used ./configure --prefix=/usr
