I found a track change-related bug regarding keyboard usage, here's how to reproduce it:
- load/create a list of files to be played
- play a file and hit TAB until the the pause button has focus (press the space bar twice to see if it works)
- now wait for Trout to jump to the next file
- hit the space bar again... and you'll notice that it stopped to work

Thanks again for Trout!

It's by design.  What is happening is that, on a track change, the focus is set to the listview (and, consequently, away from the play/pause button).  I did it this way so that you could immediately use the up/down keys to move through the list.

Edit:  brotherS, the easiest way to solve this is to simply add a "Space" local hotkey for the Play/Pause action in the Options dialog.

skwire, how about support for off-line lyrics? if there is a text file with the same filename as the song then it can be displayed in the lyrics windows. would save some bandwidth for someone like me.. :)
Yes, I plan to expand this a bit to include lyrics file reading as well as lyrics tag reading.

Ah, ok.

Thanks for the suggestion, I did that, and (only after closing and restarting Trout) it seems to work smoothly now! :)

* More slight graphical tweaks to the main interface.

I seriously hope this is a bug and not how you intended for it to look. I am running 1.0.3.38

by page 16 of this thread this shouldn't be a surprise..

from Elite Freeware blog:
"..suggest you give it a chance, i did and now Trout is my main music player. "

Trout seems to have stolen the F12 key here
-
I have a couple of apps that use F12 as a shortcut. When Trout is running, F12 doesnt work in those apps.
(This has been going on a while, I just hadnt made the effort to find out what was causing it)

I just have just four hotkeys in Trout at the moment, none including F12...

Drag & Drop doesn't work for me.

I have tried all the 3 ways of drag & drop behaviour on Trout settings.

The music files I try to drag & drop from Explorer simply don't get queued on the listing zone.

I already have reinstalled Trout several times. No success.

I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bits.

Thanks for the support.

Hmmm...if that build doesn't work for you, start Trout directly from the executable file and then try a drag & drop operation.  For some reason, that seems to make d&d work in my Vista VM.  As to why, I haven't a clue.  Maybe some more Vista-savvy folks have an idea?

i got it fixed :)

i installed the latest build and I ran Trout through the installation directory.

the drag & drop function is now working fine.

thanks for the support and keep up with the great work!

I would also like to make a suggestion for Trout:

Why not create a setting in which the user would choose the place of the dropped files?

I mean, the user should be able to place the files in a specific place (eg.: at the middle of the playslist) instead of the way of getting them dropped automatically to the end of the list.

Hmmm...that's not a bad idea.  The only issue would be how to determine where to insert the new rows.  Maybe something like "Insert after highlighted row."  Would something like that be acceptable?

Using portable version on XP SP3.

I right clicked on a mp3 and chose to open it with Trout making sure to place a tick in the check box that reads 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'.

I opened Trout and it's playing a certain mp3. When I double click on a mp3 in windows explorer, nothing happens.

Any idea?

Here's a screenshot of wassociate for mp3 file extension:

I see that the tracks are getting queued in Trout when they are launched from explorer.

So here's a feature request: A option to specify whether files should be queued or played when launched from explorer.
