I looked through the post & didn't see where this has been asked before.  Is it possible to add a bookmark function?  Or is it there and I just haven't found it?

There is no bookmark function in Trout.

I know I downloaded the Portable version, but the DcUpdate file links to download the exe which runs the installer? Shouldn't it download and unpack the zip file over the current files?

Well, the issue is that I have no idea if you're running the portable or installed version.  I suppose I could check the registry.

You could also keep a separate dcupdate file that is included with the portable version. I'm not sure what the best solution would be, but I've converted the portable Trout zip file to be compatible with PortableApps.com Launcher and this is the final thing that's preventing it from being truly portable.

I just found a bug:

I added my main "My Music" folder with thousands of songs, and while it was slowly adding each track one at a time I changed my mind and decided to just listen to one specific folder. So I selected "Clear list and add folder" and selected the folder containing the music I wanted.

It added all the music I selected, but then I noticed it kept adding more that I hadn't selected. Well, it turns out that it was finishing up the first command I gave it to add the entirety of "My Music." Expected behavior when selecting "Clear list and add folder" is to stop any previous playlist additions.

In fact, going to "Edit -> Clear playlist" also results in everything being cleared, but Trout happily continuing on with its job of adding everything it hadn't finished yet. This is bad because my computer is slow and it takes a long time to go through all those directories.

Thanks for the level meters!
I like to suggest the user defineable FG and BG color of the volume control for the level meters, too.

Hmm, I don't know if this is a feature or a bug or just an oversight, but there's a minor issue with Last.fm scrobbling.

It seems as though it doesn't scrobble the most recently played track until it changes to a new track. This means that if you have a song on repeat for 50 days it will only scrobble it the one time when you finally change tracks. And nobody (including yourself) will know how much you love/played that song.

EDIT: It seems as though this is standard scrobbling feature. I've been playing the same song on repeat in Subsonic and it only scrobbles the first play (but it doesn't show up in the list until after I've stopped the song or switch to another).

That's a bug as it was supposed to take on the same colour settings as the seekbar.  This is already fixed in the next build.  Thanks for reporting it.

Good to hear.  I also run a Subsonic server (great piece of software) and have been kicking around making a simple desktop client, à la Trout, for it.  Maybe for NANY this year or something...

REQ: URL address as Filename
« Reply #708 on: July 13, 2011, 03:35:23 AM »
Actually URL addresses are displayed as Path.
I use ONLY the Filename column of Trout's list.
That results in empty lines for added URLs.
So I would like to have URLs shown as FileName.

Once you actually play the URL, the filename column should populate with the station's name.  Isn't this better than some random URL in that field?

Moderator of Best Music Player and Organiser on TechSupportAlert about Trout player:"It has some nice advantages with the BASS engine, playing lots of music formats and resource efficiency (it would place high on my list of the lightest players). It seems to continually improve and has active development. Auto loads lyrics now (without tag saving support).

I've commented about it somewhere in past here, and I have similar problems this time with a slow playlist, and I saw an innocuous error message under a standard account (but it didn't seem to hinder any noticeable functions)."

bug report - running version 1.0.6 build 3 and it appears to periodically steal/disable the F1 key

I generally leave it running in the background while I'm working and at some point in the day the F1 key stops working (an essential key for logging into one of our mainframe systems) - I have no idea what triggers it, but isolated it to Trout by progressively closing the running apps until the functionality returned...

It was a static hotkey I erroneously left in the code when I added the WriteToXML and WriteToINI functions.

the problems still occurring - did you perhaps forget to update the portable version?

Hmmm...seems to be okay here.  With Trout running, I'm able to press F1 in other applications and launch, say, their help file.  Do you happen to have an F1 hotkey defined under Trout's options?

nope, no hotkeys, and confirmed that with Trout running all F1 key presses are waylaid

interestingly it appears to be build 9, though I have downloaded and overwritten with the latest versions a few times in the last week (including once this morning)

and just confirmed that the copy I downloaded and installed this morning was build 9 so there could be some sort of caching issue at work here...

I'd assume this as well since build 10 is on the server.  In the meantime, try grabbing this (same zip, diff name):

Apologies for the trouble.   :-[

no apologies necessary, just another of the marvels of modern technology ;)

That did the trick, and FWIW I'm still getting build 9 off the official link

many thanks for your time and attention :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Great to hear.  As for the official link, it must be a caching issue on your side since I'm certain the correct file is there.  Does your work/ISP run some sort of transparent proxy?  Do you see the same issue with different browsers?

we're behind a proxy which I suspect is the issue - same results from IE and FireFox

When i double click on any audio file, Trout software not reproduce this file in automatic  >:(.

This file is only added in the play list.

Is possible associate Trout with any command for auto reproduce any file with double click ?

Many thanks for your interest to my problem. Bye for now.
