that sound's good, as I say - if possible - you're the boss here so it's your call !!
Let's assume we go with this method.  How would you like it synced?  Here are two possible methods:
1) Clear the playlist and rebuild it from the specified folders.
2) Clear only dead entries, re-scan tags of existing files, and add any new files found to the end.

I see "Clear Playlist" is hotkeyable
If you could possibly make "Add Folder" hotkeyable as well that would cover my current needs (if not, I can always do it with the mouse - gawd help me :D actually, I can always do it with Alt+F to access menu - it's just I'm only learning all about tagging and organising so I'm in a period of major upheaval so-to-speak and have to reload the current folder often)

just BTW:-
I've finally properly tagged my (very) small collection -
Also, I changed <missing> to <++++> and find it much easier on the eyes - also makes it much easier to see what hasn't been tagged - I cant see any reason not to do this - if you can please let me know!
Thanks :)
Tom

Sure, easily doable.  It'll be in the next build.  Thanks.

Skwire: just a small suggestion, please make Trout update-able via DCUpdater.. i normally download the portable zip version and extract over the existing folder and it'd be nice to have it automated. :)

I think you can remove that part about 9x not being supported, now.  :)
Well, there's still some quirks that I see in a VM that I can't seem to iron out.  Specifically, the tray icon.

What's wrong with the tray icon? Looks ok to me:

And I am not even running in true color (had to sacrifice that for a higher resolution)

Very cool.  In the VM I test 9x on, it always shows the standard AHK green "H" icon.  Maybe it's an ME thing?  Drugwash, what does your Win98 tray show for Trout?

I hope to add this soon.  It will be optional, however.  As in, you will need to copy the dcupdater into your Trout folder yourself.  Would that be okay?

Could you add to the right-click menu a new item "Open Music Folder" to open the current selected tracks folder?

Absolutely.  I plan to go one better and provide an option for a custom file manager string for those that don't use Explorer (like me).

v1.0.2 build 106
    + Added "Explore here" option to the Edit/context menu.  [Thanks, apfel]
    + Added an option for specifying a custom file manager in regards to the 'Explore here'
      feature.  It's under the Tools, Options, General tab.  You use the $file_p token for
      the path.  I use Altap Salamander as my file manager of choice so I have the
      following specified:
     
      C:\apps\file\Salamander\salamand.exe -L "$file_p"
     
      This would open Altap Salamander with the left pane at the path of the currently
      focused song.  If a custom file manager is not specified, the path is simply "run"
      and Windows Explorer will most likely display (unless you have some other file manager
      specified as default on your system).
    * Cut the tray menu back down the basics as it was getting out of hand.

If the changed up tray menu bothers anybody, by all means, speak up.

Random is just that...random.  The same song could be played ten times in a row.  Shuffle will play each song in the list one time and stop.  Certain actions will "reset" the shuffle list, though.  Namely, adding or deleting files from the list as well as changing play modes.  Make sense?

i have been adding songs while listening in 'shuffle' mode that's why some of the songs were repeated. thanks again for the clarification.

oh, i miss the 'option' menu when right-clicking the tray icon. :)

v1.0.2 build 119
    + Made the following keys available for hotkeys: - = [ ] \ ; ' , . /
    + Added a "Preserve file modification time when saving tags" options under Tools, Options,
      General.  [Thanks, badmojo]
    * More Win9x/ME compatibility fixes.
        1) Font selection size should now work properly.
        2) Hotkeys should work now.  However, mouse-button hotkeys under 9x are sketchy at best.
        3) Text display bits should be more compatible with themed progress bars.
    * Added 'Options' back to the tray menu.  [Thanks, lanux128]

thanks for returning the 'Options'. btw, in the newer version (build 120), "Remove duplicates" and "Remove dead entries" doesn't seem to work. to make sure i moved one of the mp3 to another folder and tried again but the 'missing' file was not removed.

Thanks a lot for this player, great work! I'm blown away - again - by what's possible with AHK.  :-*

PS: The version number given in your first post in this thread is outdated.

PPS: I suggest you add "audio player" to the thread topic (to find it more easily).

Have a great day!

Edit: I found that I can only move the Trout window with the mouse, not with the Windows key + Cursor keys (AHK script), which works for virtually all other programs I use. Any idea why?

I also saw that the "TE" and "TR" track info (your position in the file) is not updated while a file is paused, you can rewind or fast forward, but only when you resume the file it's being updated. Nothing big, just mentioning it.

You're welcome; I'm glad you like it.  Sometimes the version number will get outdated when I upload silent bugfix builds.

Hmmm...that's odd.  I have a similar keyboard move script and it works fine.  If you want to PM me your script code, I can try it out on my systems.

Yes, the times only update if the track is playing but I should be able to change this.  In the meantime, the tooltip should show the current time you're dragging to even if a track is paused.  Thanks for the feedback.

Will do!

Yes, the tooltip is helpful, but it only shows up when I use the mouse, not when I use a hotkey. 8)


Last but not least, I would like a hotkey to skip back or forth a few (definable?) seconds. I'm used to that from players like mp3DirectCut and xmplay. Do you feel like adding that?  :)

Your script works perfectly for me with Trout.   :huh:

Now that's strange... but not vitally important, as I move around other windows more often than my audio players.
