Can you make it so that Total time, Time elapsed, and Time Remaining (for individual tracks) don't show the number of hours?

Thanks for the feedback but, no, I'm not going to change that.

I've also been experiencing a strange issue. It seems like whenever I first start up Trout, if I double click an item in the list to play it, it won't play. Then when I get a song playing, double-click-to-play works fine after that.

Argh...this issue has plagued me for a long time.  I've tried to solve it in the past but it's somewhat difficult because I don't have a clue why the listview is acting that way.  Here's the actual comments from my source code right before my attempts to solve this issue:

Code: Autohotkey
  1. ; Fixes the stupid listview bug where the double-click
  2. ; event doesn't work on startup.  Gotta be a better way.
  3.  

 :D

Are there any plans to integrate some windows 7 specific features into this program? (In particular I'm talking about the pause/play buttons that show in the Aero preview and the progress bar embedded on the superbar icon.)

That would make this program (even more) super!

Ok guys, quick questions since I haven't played around with Trout in quite some time: is it possible to use Trout as a 'random directory player' for more than one directory*? Would I just have to install it more than once for that purpose? (Trout A for directory X, and Trout B for directory Y)

*in a way that it would just randomly play the files in a given directory, and would update its list if I add files to the directory after Trout had been closed before

No, but it does have a "Remove duplicates" feature so you can load the directory again (after adding new files to it), run the "Remove duplicates" command, and then just play it in Random mode.  There is also a "Remove dead entries" command to quickly glean out tracks that you have deleted but are still in Trout's playlist.  You'll find both commands in the Edit menu and you can hotkey them as well in Trout's Options dialog.

...and here's a request :D

Please make the random option even more random: when I close and restart Trout, it plays the first file in the list - every time I restart Trout. Only when I click the "next file" button, the random mode really kicks in.

I get around that by using the "Remove track after playback" option found on the List menu. That way it can't play the same files over and over, even when restarting. After playing the first file, it's no longer on the list to be played again. This ensures no repeats as long as there are still files in the list. When the list is empty, reload the folder and begin again.

I keep getting an error message that says it can't save the list contents. It does this every time I do anything to the playlist (add, remove, etc.) and when I close the program.

Windows 7 32-bit.

Move your Trout folder out of the Program Files directory to some non-UAC protected folder.

@ app103: yeah, I thought about that too, but I'd rather have a fixed version. :-D

Try v1.0.5 build 2, please.
That fixed it, thank you! :Thmbsup:

Hmmm...I have no idea, then since I didn't change any of that code.  Does it work in a non-UAC folder?

An interesting bug showed up today... I can't reproduce it at will, but it happened twice within a few hours.

I created an "Alt-Space" hotkey for "Next" Action yesterday and use the space bar to pause/play files (the pause/play button being highlighted). While I jumped to the next file with this hotkey today and then paused the file with the space bar, it happened twice that Trout paused the file while playing it at the same time! Unpausing it would cause Trout to play the file simultaneously. It was not possible to stop the other one from playing other than quitting Trout. Maybe you can prevent that by making sure that just one play process is being launched at the same time.

This happens to me occasionally as well.  However, like you said, it's not reproducible at will so I've had a hard time fixing it.  I added some checks a long while back that mitigated it a bit but not totally.  I'll try to find some time to work on it a bit further.

I noticed a few times now that Trout, after ending it and restarting it later, sets its volume to 0 at program start (I never set it to 0 manually). Strange.

1.0.5 build 2

Small bug:

At the beginning of a file, when you pause it at a "TE:" amount of time smaller than the set "Rewind track x seconds when resuming from pause" time, Trout won't do any rewinding once you resume it. It would be very helpful if Trout would just rewind it to the beginning of the file in cases like that.

Request:

An option to add x seconds of silence between files (so in a way to pause it for x seconds) would come in handy in some situations.

After thinking about it for a while, I realized what happened was that previously I installed all my programs onto another drive, and (somewhat) recently I reformatted my computer and started putting things into the Program Files directory. I guess I haven't listened to music much lately in Trout since it took me so long to notice it.

Another small bug:

I have Trout installed in two folders (with two different playlists). Today I
- started Trout A and played something
- started Trout B and played something
- quit Trout B
- a bit later I saw that Trout A (which was still running) had taken over the window title from Trout B (displaying a title from the other playlist at the top of its window, even though still having loaded a title from its own playlist)

    ! If the value set for "Rewind track # seconds when resuming from pause"
      was set and the elapsed time of a track was less, Trout wouldn't rewind
      the track when resuming.  Now Trout will reset the track time to the
      start of the track.  (Thanks, brotherS)
    ! Fixed a title setting issue.  (Thanks, brotherS)

Hmm... it seems in the latest version a 'feature' of a/the previous version got lost. When I start Trout, it now starts with a blank Seekbar and Titlebar - I loved that it used to display the file that it would play next at startup already, *before* hitting the play button. (Play Mode = Random)

Not a big deal, just a friendly request to bring this back. :)
