Oh, I forgot: is it possible for you to make the "Random" play mode a tiny little bit less random? So that it would not play the same file twice in a row?
Cool

The volume bar does not have a border to contain it (unlike the seekbar). Bug or feature?  smiley

I don't know what you're referring to in this case.

Hard to describe... let me try with an image:

[attachimg=#1]


Hmm... it seems in the latest version a 'feature' of a/the previous version got lost. When I start Trout, it now starts with a blank Seekbar and Titlebar - I loved that it used to display the file that it would play next at startup already, *before* hitting the play button. (Play Mode = Random)

I went back several versions but I don't see this feature you're describing.  At any rate, I can populate the seekbar text on startup but the titlebar doesn't get activated until a song is playing (it's always been this way, I believe).

Just populating the seekbar with that text would be great!


When I let Trout run in the background (paused, while doing other stuff) for an hour or two, and then go back to Trout to resume, Trout - unsuccessfully - tries to go through the whole playlist in a quick succession, not being able to play a single file.

I have no idea what would be causing this.  I routinely leave Trout paused for long periods of time (overnight) and have no problems resuming playback.  Are your music files on a network drive that disconnects or a USB drive that has gone into standby, perhaps?

Hmm... I have external drives that go into standby, but the files in Trout are on a local TrueCrypt volume that's always 'connected'.

And these two bugs are still in the last version. Anyone else experiencing this?

Not a big deal, just a friendly request to bring this back. smiley
And another new bug, maybe related to this one (no idea):

When I let Trout run in the background (paused, while doing other stuff) for an hour or two, and then go back to Trout to resume, Trout - unsuccessfully - tries to go through the whole playlist in a quick succession, not being able to play a single file.

I then quit and restart Trout... and everything works fine again. Happened to me twice already.

Another small bug:

I have Trout installed in two folders (with two different playlists). Today I
- started Trout A and played something
- started Trout B and played something
- quit Trout B
- a bit later I saw that Trout A (which was still running) had taken over the window title from Trout B (displaying a title from the other playlist at the top of its window, even though still having loaded a title from its own playlist)

what about hotkeys?

could another app be stealing using that key assignment?
Daaaaamn, that's it! Problem solved, thanks! :-) I didn't think of it as a possible cause.

Thanks to Shades, too.
134  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: most weird Ctrl key issue *ever*? on: January 05, 2011, 04:26:15 PM
The issue has returned.  Sad
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: most weird Ctrl key issue *ever*? on: January 05, 2011, 02:05:53 PM
Interesting, there was another one installed. I removed it... let's see! :-) Thanks for the pointer!
136  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / most weird Ctrl key issue *ever*? on: January 05, 2011, 10:30:00 AM
Hi,

since a week or two ago I have this really strange Ctrl key issue... it *sometimes* stops working as a qualifier key (in combination with the up/down cursor keys). I noticed it in two different programs. First I thought my keyboard was failing, but it's the same thing with a different keyboard.

The really weird thing is that I can't reproduce it at will. Right now it's not working for example, but it might work again in 5 minutes. Or in two hours. I didn't spot a pattern. (Sometimes I seem to be able to get it to work again by restarting the program I want to use it in, but not always.)

Any ideas?

Small bug:

At the beginning of a file, when you pause it at a "TE:" amount of time smaller than the set "Rewind track x seconds when resuming from pause" time, Trout won't do any rewinding once you resume it. It would be very helpful if Trout would just rewind it to the beginning of the file in cases like that.

Request:

An option to add x seconds of silence between files (so in a way to pause it for x seconds) would come in handy in some situations.

I noticed a few times now that Trout, after ending it and restarting it later, sets its volume to 0 at program start (I never set it to 0 manually). Strange.

1.0.5 build 2

An interesting bug showed up today... I can't reproduce it at will, but it happened twice within a few hours.

I created an "Alt-Space" hotkey for "Next" Action yesterday and use the space bar to pause/play files (the pause/play button being highlighted). While I jumped to the next file with this hotkey today and then paused the file with the space bar, it happened twice that Trout paused the file while playing it at the same time! Unpausing it would cause Trout to play the file simultaneously. It was not possible to stop the other one from playing other than quitting Trout. Maybe you can prevent that by making sure that just one play process is being launched at the same time.

@ app103: yeah, I thought about that too, but I'd rather have a fixed version. :-D

Try v1.0.5 build 2, please.
That fixed it, thank you! Thmbsup

...and here's a request cheesy

Please make the random option even more random: when I close and restart Trout, it plays the first file in the list - every time I restart Trout. Only when I click the "next file" button, the random mode really kicks in.

Ok guys, quick questions since I haven't played around with Trout in quite some time: is it possible to use Trout as a 'random directory player' for more than one directory*? Would I just have to install it more than once for that purpose? (Trout A for directory X, and Trout B for directory Y)

*in a way that it would just randomly play the files in a given directory, and would update its list if I add files to the directory after Trout had been closed before

Is there harddisk access when the freezes happen?

When monitoring CPU usage, be sure to show kernel timings. If the lockups have high CPU usage and lots of time spent in kernel-mode and there's disk activity, your disk might be failing. You might want to check if your controllers have reverted from DMA->PIO mode.
Thanks, I'll ask you how to check that if the problem persists - which it thankfully doesn't seem to. And just to be safe, I'll backup my data more frequently.
146  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: what's wrong with my PC? (it's often soooo slow) on: September 23, 2010, 09:25:36 AM
Maybe it was in a recent Windows update? I've had Windows 7 since about the time it was released and it was only recently that I started encountering problems with my HDDs spinning down, too. Then again, I did just recently format and do a fresh install. . .
Yeah, let's blame some recent Windows update for the time being. (I remembered that I did go through those settings after purchasing this machine, so probably a recent Windows update DID change that.

I'll hunt for other causes should the problem persist (doesn't seem to though - fingers crossed!). Thanks to all you.
147  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: what's wrong with my PC? (it's often soooo slow) on: September 23, 2010, 03:43:08 AM
Strange thing about this is that these issues never showed up during the first 2 years after I bought it... weird.  Cool
148  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: what's wrong with my PC? (it's often soooo slow) on: September 23, 2010, 03:34:43 AM
It might be your hard drives being put to sleep after a short time. Windows 7 had it set to about 20 minutes by default on "Balanced" so any time I'd do something that needed a hard drive it would have to spin up again.
Indeed, that's set to 20 minutes in both profiles in Vista too! If that options works as it should it shouldn't be a problem, but I can remember at least two times where the problem occured roughly 20 minutes after starting a Skype conversation... I now changed the 20 to 0 (= never), thank you!
149  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: what's wrong with my PC? (it's often soooo slow) on: September 23, 2010, 02:22:07 AM
Wow, thanks for all the pointers!

No nasty clunking HD sounds, and nothing really bad in the Event Viewer. mouser's comment about CPU usage (when those problems occur CPU usage sometimes seems to be at 100%, sometimes not - I need to monitor this more) reminded me of something I *did* change some time ago: I set my PC's (it's a laptop) energy options from "energy saving" to "balanced" in hope of a better system performance. I now reversed that back to "energy saving", and the PC behaves way more smoothly. Interesting (and a bit strange)... I'll see what will happen next.

Hi folks,

since a few weeks my PC sometimes behaves weird: programs (and the mouse cursor) freeze for a few seconds, Skype conversations (or youtube videos) come to a screeching (or crackling) halt (they sometimes recover after 20 to 30 seconds). Sometimes Vista even totally freezes. If I want a regular Skype conversation I now have to shut down Chrome before I start Skype. Even typing this is randomly slowed down/paused for a few seconds. Sucks. Sad

It's as if the HD can't keep up... and defrag doesn't help. I can't connect the beginning of the problems with any action I took - I didn't install new software or hardware.

I'm curious if you have any ideas...
