Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Ah well, I can't say I know anything about ALSA's resampler or all that sort of things. It now works with the Resampler plugin, thanks!

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Could you add a macro for --nowplaying that shows whether deadbeef is currently playing, paused or stopped?

I need it for a mute toggle script that, when unmuting, only turns the media player back on if it had paused it when muting.

As a workaround you could do that. If or until this gets implemented.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I don't use stop mode.

For now I'll query %e twice:

#! /bin/bash
if amixer get Master | grep -qF '[on]'; then
 if [[ $(deadbeef --nowplaying %e) != $(sleep 1; deadbeef --nowplaying %e) ]]; then
  touch /dev/shm/do_unpause
 fi
 pgrep deadbeef && deadbeef --pause
 amixer set Master mute
else
 amixer set Master unmute
 if [ -f /dev/shm/do_unpause ]; then
  rm /dev/shm/do_unpause
  pgrep deadbeef && deadbeef --play
 fi
fi

By the way, in my opinion, --pause, --play and such shouldn't start up deadbeef if it wasn't running.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

A small improvement to the above, if anyone cares, the one second delay can be reduced to 0 if deadbeef isn't running and on average by 0.5 seconds by checking multiple times:

#! /bin/bash

if amixer get Master | grep -qF '[on]'; then
    if pgrep deadbeef; then
        old=$(deadbeef --nowplaying %e)
        for check in {1..10}; do
            sleep 0.1
            if [[ $old != $(deadbeef --nowplaying %e) ]]; then
                touch /dev/shm/do_unpause
                break
            fi
        done
        deadbeef --pause
    fi
    amixer set Master mute
else
    amixer set Master unmute
    if pgrep deadbeef && [[ -f /dev/shm/do_unpause ]]; then
        rm /dev/shm/do_unpause
        deadbeef --play
    fi
fi

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

Any recommendations getting wma files to work with deadbeef.
Only thing i found was http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=63841 .
Does this work on arch too?

I think I had a few troubles getting WMA files loaded and playing. Make sure you have the ffmpeg library installed; apparently it is an optional dependency. Check the messages when Deadbeef is starting up; I think it prints whether each plugin successfully loaded or not. In my case I had to update ffmpeg because it was failing to load. Also check the plugin settings; make sure the ffmpeg plugin is enabled or whatever. I found I had to add the “asf” extension before it would play WMA files ending with “.asf”. Hope some of this helps smile

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I can't get .cue support to work.

I had a bunch of .tta files with .cue files and I converted all .tta's to .ogg. The .cue's are in Shift-JIS.

When I add a directory with deadbeef, it doesn't read the track and album information, just a plain .ogg.

When I add the .cue directly, nothing happens. Even when I fix the FILE field to the right extension.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

I can't get album art display to work. I've added album art column to playlist. I've tried MP3's with embedded covers and also as front.jpg in songs' directory

What am I missing?

Change the sort method in the playlist window.

Waker, thanks for this great program! It handles my music library well and is a breeze to stream Internet radio with.

Weird, .cue+.tta works here. Make sure they are on same directory with same filename. It does not matter even if the .cue file points to wrong file as long as they have same name.
Deadbeef prefers utf8 or else you get symbols. To convert use iconv -f SJIS -t utf8 sjis.cue > new.cue

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

hello.
deadbeef is very nice and pleasant to use player, but there is one very annoying thing. when program is shut down by any other means than by simple window closing or File->Exit menu item (e.g. sudo halt), it doesn't remember last playing position and resets to the position it started playing last time it was shut down "correctly". Is it possible to fix this? or maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

@Cloudef: Thanks, the issue seemed to be just the fact that the extension was .tta.ogg, which didn't match the .cue. Since I'd have to mass convert the .cue's I could do that to .tta.cue extension files. Haven't tried it though, I'm using my own cue player now.

Re: DeaDBeeF - Lightweight Audio Player

It seems strange, but DeaDBeef doesn`t add files via d'n'd from samba shares. d'n'ding local files works normally,though player doesn`t rename playlist if i add folder.

I use it as my default music player for a while.
But I have one stupid question, how should i enable the album art?
I add album art column and there is a picture named cover.jpg in the folder, but the column doesn't display the cover.

Couldn't get it working either. Thanks. smile

I really like how Deadbeef looks. It's slim, looks pretty, got many plugins (preinstalled) and just works.
Earlier I used Foobar2000 through Wine, however, it doesn't work just as good as Deadbeef. For an example it was quite annoying in Foobar2000 that it couldn't handle non English characters.

Hi It looks very good but the oss sound plugin doesn't work well the sound in ossxmix is low.
When I start ossxmix -b I have to manual increase the volume for deadbeef, Audacious doesn't has this problem.
