Hide GUI Playback Buttons
« on: August 05, 2011, 10:37:14 AM »
Another item I submit for your consideration (maybe you might consider it an enhancement)
is what if Trout users could hide or fold in/out the buttons?
to increase the width of the tag & etc display.
I have hidden the meter and the art work - freeing up considerable screen real estate for mp3 tag displays.
It would be even better (from my perspective) if I could hide the buttons or
move them to the other side - where the meter/artwork would be.
The left hand side of the Trout GUI has more important display info than the right side.
I would like to use window positioning and AHK formatting
to have more of the left side of the GUI visible than I now can ...

What about adding a column/token for the sample rate?
What about setting the default location where Trout should look for playlists & files?

No, thanks, I will not be offering an option to hide the playback controls.  Your other requests are covered here: http://www.donationc....msg258786#msg258786

Greetings ... wow ...
can't wait to try out the latest Trout ...

I try to give input/feedback that adds value to Trout ...
I hope that comes across ...

What about a sample rate column? foobar has that option ...

If you ever have some time to kill, maybe Trout could allow
users to move the playback buttons to where the hidden meter/art would be?
I never click playback buttons on any multimedia app.
I always use local/global hotkeys and/or scripts.
Maybe I am not alone in that.
It seems to me that the space/location of the buttons could be better used ...

Greetings ...

The Select playist file dialog opens to the specified path
but the Select audio files dialog still defaults to My Documents ...

I always open m3u playlists via the Clear list & add files (via a hotkey) ...
any chance users could specify the Select audio files dialog path?

in any case ... Merci viel Mal

I added a "Clear list and load playlist" option.  Please use that instead.  Also, due to an internal change, you will need to re-enter your playlists path.  Apologies.

As for the last used file and last used folder, they are already saved (since v1.0.3 build 254).

See here for the latest changes: http://www.donationc....msg259026#msg259026

Greetings.

It would be nice if users could change/edit existing hotkeys
instead of having to delete/(re)add existing hotkeys ...

Thanks again.

I fixed the $samplerate token in the latest build but the sample rate column works fine for me.

Greetings ...
10621 seems fine. (actually SUPER)
I guess there never was a samplerate column problem.
I just had to re/fresh/load the/a playlist ...

I am curious as to what the
Path_Music=
config.ini entry is does/will do ...

In case it is of interest to anyone, I'll mention that it seems to me that
mp3 files should never be encoded below a 24kHz samplerate.
I notice/hear/see a dramatic difference between 24kHz and 22050.
I do mp3s at the default samplerate when it is above 24kHz.

I do other mp3s like ...
bitrate 48 samplerate 24 lowpass filter 7800
bitrate 40 samplerate 24 lowpass filter 6900
bitrate 32 samplerate 24 lowpass filter 5100
Unfortunately I have many mp3s from long ago @ a 16kHz samplerate
