Bug report:

If user changes the "Missing tag value" string in options,
it will be saved correct in Tags_Missing_String field of config.ini file,
but doesn't appear at playback.
Trout shows the default string "<missing>" instead.
The "Missing tag value" gets filled in when the song is added to the list.
Once it is in the list, it won't get updated.
Try to remove the song and adding it again.
You will then have it filled in with the new value.

Even closing trout doesn't help getting the new value.

Thanks DeVamp for enlighting me! :)

... at least that made me think of a bug - perhaps it's even a feature.  :mrgreen:

Simply highlight the tracks in question (or all of them) and choose Edit, Selection, Rescan tags.   :D

Uhhh...that'd be a bug.  =]  I'll fix it in the next push.  Thanks for finding and reporting it.

Trout is already at 1.0.4 build 28 and not 27. Please, change this on the first page.

Website | Installer | Portable
v1.0.4 build 65 - 2010-06-05
    + Added two new File menu options.  (Thanks, Lesmo16)
        1) Clear list and add file(s)
        2) Clear list and add folder
    + Added Libre.fm scrobbling support.  (Thanks, Bziur)
    + Added a "Full screen" mode.  Default hotkey is F11.  You can also set your own hotkey for this or invoke it from the View menu.
    + Added new token "$part_of_set".  This corresponds to the ID3v2 tag TPOS and is usally used to denote which disc of a multi-disc set a song comes from.  This token can be used in the string formatting sections.  (Thanks, Lesmo16)
    ! Muted volume would unmute on a track change.  (Thanks, lanux128)


I hope I didn't break anything critical.  =]

Almost great! ;)

When using one of these new commands Trout clears the actual list at once.
Skwire, would you please change that behaviour, because the user could also CANCEL the file/folder opening window.
Please clear the list only, if the user terminates that window with OK.

Thanks in advance.

This is almost certainly an ID3v2.4 issue.  Gah, I hate the ID3v2.x standard.  What a pain in the @$$ to deal with.  Let me see what I can do.

Wow, that was fast. But
Sorry, no it doesn't. But now I think the problem doesn't involve tagging.. It seems to have problem not only displaying tags, but also playing music with kana/kanji (Japanese alphabet). So maybe it's unicode problem. I didn't check if the player supports unicode. ^^'

//Edit:
Just as suspected. After translating all the tags to Romaji and replacing kana/kanji with the result and changing filenames it works swiftly and without any problem. All the tags load correctly etc.
//Edit2:
Problem with playing and interpreting tags seems to occur only when the filename contains kana/kanji characters. If the file name and directory name is in romaji it seems to play it without any problems. Also tags are in their places. Japanese characters are replaced with question marks.

Correct.  Trout, currently, does not fully support Unicode.  I have all my computers' default language set to Japanese as well as having set Japanese as the default language for non-Unicode apps.  This allows me to view kana/kanji without a problem:

That being said, yes, I'm aware that there is a branch of AutoHotkey (the language Trout is written in) that does support Unicode.  However, if it was just a simple matter of compiling the source in it and poof, Unicode works, I'd have done it long ago.  Unfortunately, it's not as simple as that.

With ticked "Balloon tip on song change" I get annoying beeps from "Audible notification on new track" although it isn't ticked. It appears approx. at every 4th or 5th track change.

It's only with BallonTip and doesn't happen using Toaster popup.

Can anyone confirm this?
Can anyone fix this?  :)

Are you certain you're hearing the tone that "Audible notification on new track" provides?  It's a three tone sound that should come from the PC speaker inside your case (not your soundcard speakers).  If you want to hear what it sounds like (and have AutoHotkey installed), save the following to a .ahk file and run it:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]

Well, it seems to be another sound I'm talking about.
It's a one tone beep from my desktop speakers.
The new track starts immediately after that beep.

I found the played tone as sound file: "C:\WINDOWS\Media\Windows XP-Sprechblase.wav"
It's called "Windows XP balloon.wav" in English Windows versions, AFAIK.

Make that 11!  I registered here just so I could say that :D

I agree with that completely.  As I said I only just registered, but I've been enjoying Trout for quite awhile.  It's actually the music player I have in my portable apps collection. 

Right now I have my music collection being served up via http and Trout is the ONLY player I've found that will reliably play it.  Although it doesn't read the ID3 tags.  I realize it would be silly to download all the songs just to get the tags, but would it possible to update the tags in the playlist once the song is played?

Also, what is the difference between the Shuffle and Random Play Modes?

Trout is awesome!  I know you said before that you don't want to release the source code, but if you did make it available I'd be interested in playing around with it.
