Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Just wanna say I love this player although I have one question. (first negative thing I noticed)
I have my servers music dir mounted with sshfs and I just added about 45000 songs to a playlist.
Now, is there any reason for not being able to press anything except the queue window while its adding all the songs, would be nice to be able to use the other playlists while adding to another one.
Because it took a while adding all those tongue

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

i've just started using deadbeef, and echo all the comments on here. As a foobar fan deadbeef is the closest thing available for linux, and i look forward to the addition of more features in the future.
i have one very noob question though, how do i convert my search results to anew  playlist, i can't seem to copy and paste, drag or anything, but perhaps i'm missing something pretty basic?
thanks!

Also, is there anyway to open the containing folder of a selected track?

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Hello guys, I'm quite new to unix and arch and I have a problem installing deadbeef.
I'm trying to install with PKGBUILD. I read the documentation and understood that I have do:

makepkg PKGBUILD

But I get

==> ERROR: PKGBUILD contains CRLF characters and cannot be sourced.

What should I do ?

Thanks!

Seems, like your PKGBUILD was edited under Windows. Just use yaourt and AUR (see wiki for details)

Thanks @eDio, I installed it but there is another issue. When I run deadbeef it apears for a second and disapears. Why would that be ?

Maybe try running it from the shell to get error messages...

Version 0.4.4 seems to work fine here (I just installed it.) Nice icon smile (that's the only change I noticed for the moment!)

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

good work man! i loved the player so much i forgot i had rhythmbox! by the way, there's this weird bug which occurs if you accidentally press the play button when there's already something playing. i suspect it plays the song in the first session saved.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Hey, just wanted to say that I am blown away by this program's support for .cue. Pretty much every format w/ cue I've thrown at deadbeef works (AoTuv ogg vorbis, lame mp3, Alac, Flac single and multi file) without issue.

Apart from that I'm wondering if there is a way I can get deadbeef to look up track info for audio cds (.cdda)? It would be nice to see track info playing a audio cd without ripping it prior to playing w/ deadbeef. Didn't see any obvious options in preferences.

Wishes this was cross platform smile. Doing great so far dude. In comparison to other niche music players that play .cue files on Mac OSX (Cog player, Vox) deadbeef kicks butt.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

deadbeef is listed to be able to run in plain console without X on freebsd and opensolaris, so i would like to make a feature request about also getting that to work for GNU/Linux.

I personally use cmus, which also features e.g. replaygain, gappless-playback etc. etc. but i'm really impressed by deadbeef's image/cue capabilities and tagging support...

Additionally, then a simple curses-ui would be awesome(wishfull thinking...)

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Great foundation for a Foobar2000 replacement on Linux.  There are still things here or there that haven't been written in yet, but this is the first player I've used on Linux that feels comfortable, responsive, AND can handle my huge collection.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

capoeira, there is something called "Edit Post". Use that feature instead of posting multiple times consecutively.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

sorry, i somehow didn't manage to monitor this forum.. will try to reply to last page of posts here..

rulex,
> is there any reason for not being able to press anything except the queue window while its adding all the songs, would be nice to be able to use the other playlists while adding to another one.

yes, there's a technical limitation. i'm trying to fix it for the upcoming 0.5 release, but it will more likely happend in 0.5.1

henge,
> i have one very noob question though, how do i convert my search results to anew  playlist, i can't seem to copy and paste, drag or anything, but perhaps i'm missing something pretty basic?

drag-n-drop works, while copy&paste is not implemented yet. it is a fairly big task, and is quite low priority. not even planned for 0.5 series.

> Also, is there anyway to open the containing folder of a selected track?

it is possible with shellexec plugin, it allows to add custom context menu entries, and bind them to shell commands, e.g. xdg-open %D
the plugin doesn't have GUI configuration though, and no documentation.. so you'll have to dig into sources to figure out what to put into config file..
unless i find time to write a wiki page

jeslinmx,
> there's this weird bug which occurs if you accidentally press the play button when there's already something playing. i suspect it plays the song in the first session saved.

you should file a bug report with some more details.

adamlogan,
> Apart from that I'm wondering if there is a way I can get deadbeef to look up track info for audio cds (.cdda)?

cddb should work out of the box. check cd audio plugin settings

mhertz,
> deadbeef is listed to be able to run in plain console without X on freebsd and opensolaris, so i would like to make a feature request about also getting that to work for GNU/Linux.

this of course also works on linux. read previous page please.

capoeira,
> where do I put jack.c?

you'll need to compile plugin, and copy it to ~/.local/lib/deadbeef/
not sure if it's compatible with 0.4.4 or no.
it's sad that plugin devs are not willing to provide binary builds of their work.

hope that helps

cheers!

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Just realized that DeaDBeeF is in the official repository now. Great work!

And DeadBeeF is updated to 5.0 beta 1 few days ago. Another achievement!

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Had tried the old versions, ok, but i wanted some thing more! So tried A LOT of available music players and backing to this, now I see that is what I WANT! big_smile
No need for music player, tag editors, CD extractor or audio converter softwares (alone) ANYMORE! All this in DeaDBeeF for much little (resources)!

Let's try to implement library, maybe it become better.
But I think that the better would be take the control buttons larger, in high resolutions it becomes a little annoying (at last here):

the size of these icons is controlled by gtk/gnome settings.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

The only thing thats missing from deadbeef now, is a way to have a directory listing on the left, so you can drag n drop them on the playlist. Is something like that planned?

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I have 56 kbps (CBR) 22050 Hz stereo files that play way too fast (or at least the pitch is way too high.) They used to play fine but I don't know which update triggered this problem.

Edit: I just saw this... http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=de … id=1159086
Would be better if it just worked, as before, though.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

many people didn't like the way it worked before. SRC resampler is pretty slow compared to ALSA, and there were many complaints about it. which is why i changed it to the way it is now.

for new installations, it should work automatically -- in exactly the same way as it was in 0.4.4 and earlier.
but when upgrading -- it sometimes fails to auto-configure, and needs some manual tweaking.
