Woot!  Another name for the list!   :D

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.-ignotus (July 13, 2010, 10:52 AM)

Try the latest build I just uploaded.  It should read tags when adding them to your playlist and you should now be able to seek those URLs as well.  Please let me know if it works for you and if I've broken anything else in regards to streams and streaming.

Also, what is the difference between the Shuffle and Random Play Modes?-ignotus (July 13, 2010, 10:52 AM)

* Random plays songs randomly with only a basic check to make sure it doesn't play the same song twice in a row.  This mode doesn't quit until you click stop.
* Shuffle takes the current list, randomises it in memory and plays each track exactly one time.  Certain things can reset that order (adding songs, stopping, etc.).
Make sense?

Website | Installer | Portable
v1.0.4 build 83 - 2010-07-13
    + Added ability for Trout to read tags from and seek URLs that are
      actually files e.g. http://www.site.com/music/song.mp3.  Trout will
      read the tags when you ADD the files so you will have to re-add the
      files in your playlist to see the tags.  (Thanks, ignotus)

ignotus:
Thanks for the quick response!

Make sense?

Yes indeed it does :) Thanks

I have ~3500 songs all in the same playlist and when I added them it did read the tags, but it also took a lot longer to add songs.  This wouldn't be so bad if I could start playing while the rest are being added.  Trout tried to play, but the streaming sources kept failing.  I'm guessing this has more to do with the http server I'm using (python -m SimpleHTTPServer) than Trout though. 

Also, the seeking seems to work the same as it did before.  I can't immediately seek to the end of the song, but I can seek short distances until the song loads completely.  Again, maybe the http server I'm using doesn't support it.

I'll try and get a more advanced web server running and give it a try then.

I doubt is has to do with the server.  Maybe I'll change it so it reads the tags on playback instead of on load.  That way, you'll see just the filename at first and the tags will come in as the files are played.  Would that be acceptable?

This is probably more of a issue with the upload speed of the server.  Are you streaming these from home to work or something like that?  If so, there probably isn't going to be a whole lot you can do about it.

Thanks for you patience on this while I work out what's going to work best.

That sounds just fine with me.
