Is there a way to get Trout to save Playlist info after every track?

I've changed it so the list saves after adding or deleting files.  Hopefully, this will alleviate the issues you're having.

The option to play a sound when the track changes is very useful.. and has led to me to wonder if it might be cool to have an option to use the MS speech api to actually announce the track #, or filename, or track title.  Could be cool -- and useful for those of us listening to audiobooks while going to sleep, or for visual impaired people.

Hmmm...cool idea...and something I should be able to implement.  Thanks for the idea.

Lastest build:

v1.0.2 build 257
    + Added "Add paths from clipboard" to the File menu.
    * Made Trout save the current list after adding/deleting files.  [Thanks, Deozaan]
    ! Fixed a logic bug when entering/checking Last.fm username/password data.  [Thanks, apfel]

Wow, I just saw this!  This is very impressive, skwire.  Sometimes, the talent here at DC blows me away.

actually, since I created an idea for an audio application a couple of days ago (here), maybe this application can do it with a minor tweak.

Since trout is already an audio player, maybe this can be done easily.  If I load in a short file (mp3, or wav), and I set it to "Repeat File" so that it loops over and over, could you have an option or could you add a feature for gapless looping?  Meaning exactly that:  there is absolutely zero pause between the end of the track and the beginning of the next cycle.  That way, i can load a drum sample in, and play it on a continuous loop and essentially use it as my drummer while I practice piano.  But it must be gapless because these drum loops are made the exact right length, and any gap will throw it off.

I created a custom audio looper app, for you, in that thread.  =]

Could I please have an option that when I click a toaster popup it immediately closes?

Some of the stuff I listen to makes some crazy monster sized toaster popups like this:

v1.0.2 build 269
    + Added a Text-To-Speech option to the "New track notification" options.  (Thanks, mouser)
    + Added an option so you can choose what happens to the toaster popup when you click on it.
      Currently, you can make it stay on-screen until it loses focus or you can make it disappear
      immediately.  Tools, Options, Toaster tab.  (Thanks, app103)
    * Improved the "Repeat file" mode to do gapless looping.  (Thanks, superboyac)
    ! Add URL GUI showed up incorrectly under Windows 7 Beta.  (Thanks, temp01)
    ! Album art showed up incorrectly on startup if Trout was installed on the
      root of a drive.  (Thanks, temp01)

Wow, skwire, that is just perfect.  It does exactly what I wanted, and it's portable.  I basically have my own personal drum backup on my keychain now.  Thanks so much.

For the record, SAPI must be installed for the TTS stuff to even have a chance at working.  I believe that SAPI is installed by default on XP.  Otherwise, you can download from it from Microsoft.  I've no idea if it works on Win9x/ME (I would guess not).

It should work. I'll test it out later and let you know for sure.

v1.0.3 build 4
    + Added a basic lyrics display.  Lyrics are provided by http://www.lyricwiki.org so,
      to make use of this feature, you will need to have "Allow internet access" enabled
      under Tools, Options.  Once you have that done, choose "Show lyrics window" from
      the View menu.  Some notes:  
      1) The lyrics window will even work for streaming music sites that send
         the artist/title info.
      2) The lyrics window also can function in a stand-alone manner.  Simply enter
         the artist and track title and click the search button.
      3) If you do a search on just an artist, a list of all songs that LyricWiki has lyrics
         for will be returned.

Slick;
Very nice.

I wondered what you've been up to.

Thanks.

I thought I had this fixed (during my own testing).  Try resizing the box and see if that saves it.

That does, in fact, resolve the problem, but then again does not save the state if you move it after resizing it.

Hope that helps.

Ah, completely forgot about this place. Was really wondering wassup with Trout. ;)

One minor thing that I just stumbled into: changing playlist background color doesn't start up with the currently set color (possibly a custom one). If we just want to slightly alter the current shade, it would be quite hard to. Could we have it so that the color picker dialog starts up with the current color already selected?

Thank you and all the best!  :Thmbsup:

nice work with the lyrics window.. can you make it snap to the right-edge of the main window? currently it opens at top-left.

I use allSnap for making windows snap together.  The lyrics window should save its position if you resize it.  I need to fix the bug that doesn't save if you only move it (and don't resize it).

Bug: Clicking the toaster popup doesn't change the length of time it takes to disappear, despite having the option to close it immediately selected in the options.
