Skwire Empire / Trout/bass? buffering?
« on: September 28, 2012, 09:11 AM »
Every time there is any network activity to/from my PII XP laptop while Trout is playing,
the playback "cracks up". This does not happen with (any) other players (that have buffering [set]).
I'm guessing Trout has no buffering and that this is why the playback cracks up?
Maybe something to consider?

Skwire Empire / bass plugins
« on: June 17, 2012, 01:52 PM »


I have Trout (portable) "installed" in the same directory
where I have TagScanner (portable) "installed"
Both use the bass plugins, so I do not have to have
the same bass plugins in two places on my harddrive.

It seems the plugins bass_aac, bass_alac & bass_ape included with Trout are out of date ...
likewise for the main bass.dll 2.471 vs 2.490
(My) Trout will play .wv files, because TagS includes the basswv.dll ...

Skwire Empire / format Trout StatusBar?
« on: June 16, 2012, 05:27 AM »


How about users being able to set some Trout StatusBar formatting?
I would like to BOLD the TE, TR, CPU% & PL# sections and
set the font/background colors to lime on black
(like the/my SeekBar items ... for reference
 see one of my previous postings with upload images ...)

Also the final field with the pathed item playing is not wide enough (for my items).
Maybe the PL# section is too wide?
Also maybe users could be able to select how much (if any) of the path to show there?
... like maybe only the filename without any path or with just the last subdir name?

Skwire Empire / playback status from Win API SendMessage
« on: December 19, 2011, 05:22 AM »
SendMessage to WinAmp (or players that support WinAmp APIs like Trout)
to determine playback status (playing/paused/stopped) is»
Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. SendMessage, 0x400, 0, 104, , ahk_class Winamp v1.x
I would like to know the SM syntax for players (like CoolPlayer)
that use Windows APIs instead of WinAmp APIs ...

Skwire Empire / Hide GUI Playback Buttons
« on: August 05, 2011, 10:37 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?

Skwire Empire / Trout playlist contextmenu bugs?
« on: June 08, 2011, 11:59 AM »

I have just noticed what seem to be some Trout playlist contextmenu (CM) bugs.
After I hit the CM key and the playlist CM pop ups,
Some of the &hotkeys in the CM do not seem to work.

For example, if I hit "s" for &Selection, nothing happens.
Then if I "arrow down" to &Selection,
I cannot then "arrow over" to expand to the &Selection subCM items...
I have to use/move the mouse to use &Selection.

"c" for &Clear playlist does not seem to work ...
"l" for & does not seem to work ...
"o" for C&opy path/URL does not seem to work ...

Skwire Empire / bass.dll as ffdShow filter?
« on: April 11, 2011, 12:27 PM »
Today I stumbled across the DirectShow FilterPack»DSFP
The DSFP enables using bass.dll as an ffDShow filter.
The Softella - DirectShow Filter Manager is also useful and allows tweaking filter "merit".
I was wondering what having bass.dll as a ffDShow filter would do for me (& my PII)?
How does the DSFP bass.dll component interact with ffDShow mp3 decoding?
Wouldn't mind hearing/knowing what you might know/think ...

I've just discovered
I also do lots of AHK scripting ... love AHK...
I have LOTS of AHK scripts - a few are memory-resident/permanent.
I also do some CPU usage monitoring and (attempted) control.
One of my permanent scripts uses the following
Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. SBWErr := 0
  2. If WinExist("Windows Task ahk_class #32770") and (SlWS2w = 0)
  3.  {
  4.   If (RuWTMin = 1)
  5.    {
  6.     RuWTMin := 0
  7.     RunWait, aWTMrepo.exe, %IU%
  8.    }
  9.   SlWS2w := SlWS2/1000
  10.   ErrorLevel := 0
  11.   StatusBarWait, 100, %SlWS2w%, 2, Windows Task ahk_class #32770
  12.   If (ErrorLevel = 0)
  13.    If (ExEx = 1)
  14.     SBWErr := 1
  15.  }
  16. else If (SlWS2w = 0)
  17.  SLEEP, %SlWS2%
which checks if CPU usage at the given moment is 100%.
I have three XP laptops - one auf Deutsch,
so I have to accomodate differing window titles sometimes.

Anyway, I have no idea how to determine the CPU usage of any given process
but would REALLY like to know ...

AHK/NP++ users might want to check out the following»

Any helpful replies/insights appreciated.
Thank you.

Skwire Empire / Problem with Trout Tag Editing Function?
« on: February 21, 2011, 03:16 AM »

Three times in the last week I have had a SERIOUS problem with Trout's tagger.
After I hit Update, Trout's tagger has OVERWRITTEN the next track in the playlist with a copy of the mp3 being edited! I don't know how to suggest easily replicating this.

I previously had always used TagScanner (portable) to do batch tag editing.
(AudioShell 1.35 - no longer supported? - allows easily editing some tag fields
 of single files through any file explorer/manger ...) Anyway, I started using the Trout tag editor because I could see the display in Trout immediately.

I load an m3u playlist.
Goto to the first line. Hit play to bring up the display.
Hit stop and then the context menu button to bring up the lineitem menu.
Choose edit tag. Edit the tag. Hit Update.
Hit play to bring up the edited display.
Choose the hotkey for "next" to display the next item.
Hit stop and then the context menu button to bring up the lineitem menu ...

Three times after I hit Update and then play, playback failed & Trout moved to the next lineitem - and apparently OVERWROTE the next track in the playlist with a copy of the mp3 being edited - not just the tags - the entire mp3!
I have added the following step to the above routine to see if it keeps the Trout tagger from failing & overwriting. After I open the Edit dialogue the first time, I close it and then repopen it ...

I don't know how to suggest easily replicating this fail/overwrite problem but wanted to mention it ...

Today I updated my (portable) to by only copying in the new Trout.exe - which has "solved" this problem that I have had with Trout in all releases since What could be wrong with any of the other files in the release? never skips on any of my mp3s whether at 32-24 or 128-48 ... but every Trout release after has had an unacceptable playback "skip" problem. By only copying in the new Trout.exe, I seem to have "solved" the problem; but what could be wrong with any of the other files in the release?

Skwire Empire / Request: /pause & /unpause switches
« on: February 17, 2011, 05:22 AM »
How about a command line un/pause option to go with the start/stop options?
