@greengeek: I have looked at your last two suggestions about the Carousel and they really aren't feasible without major changes.

However, I have added a pop-up message when you press Play a second time that explains the limitation.

V3.1 is posted above.

Excellent - 3.1 is working well. I like the idea of the message clarifying that the playlist cannot be modified on the fly.

Actually - while using Carousel I've had another idea - would it be difficult to rearrange the Carousel window so that instead of being relatively square, it was a long and thin rectangle that could sit underneath the video window?

That way it would be possible to click "next track" and "next disc" without the carousel window having to pop into the foreground over the top of the video.

(ie: one row of 3 title windows at far left, a second row of 3 title windows in the middle, and the control buttons regrouped toward the right).

If not, no matter - it's great as is.

@greengeek:

1. I have put the line of Carousel control buttons in a separate window that takes up less screen space.

2. I have added a Random feature to the Carousel.

See v3.4 above.

Peasy Carousel v3.2 has good functionality now. I can use it very happily like this:

Couple of comments:

Normal mode:
I like this "ribbon style" control - I can tuck it at lower right, below the video window and step through as I want without having windows overlay each other.
If using "Next Disc" to step through everything there is sometimes an unexpected delay as it switches from the last disc back to the first disc. Not a major but momentarily makes you think something has stopped (which it hasn't). This seems to be something to do with switching from an flv video window back to an audio window - but strangely it seems to be more noticeable sometimes than others. (Maybe something to do with my Mplayer??)

Random Mode:
Very useful addition. Note: select random before clicking start.
One notable issue: if you click "Next Track" everything works as expected but if you click the "Next Disc" button it usually steps back to a specific previously played song - even if that is already playing. (although this behave slightly differently depending on whether or not you have just used "Skip Track"). It's hard to quantify exactly what is happening here. I guess Its really not intended for the user to fiddle with things when it's in random mode, but the ability to skip away from a disc that you've heard enough of would be handy.

Overall, very good and useful.

In Random mode there is only one "disc" because all the folders have been merged together and shuffled. So clicking Next Disc just restarts playback from the beginning.

You can see this "disc" in the temporary folder /tmp/carouseltmp.

Testing the v3.4 pet:

Very good! Loving it. My preference is Carousel - it works nicely and is flexible - I can chuck in my entire media collection, or just smaller portions of it very easily.

I think most people will be very happy that you've set it to play as soon as they hit start - that makes it nice and streamlined (although I quite liked the fact I had a chance to move the ribbon controls to bottom of screen before hitting play... But then I can use the 3.2 pet for that)

V3.5 adds a new feature to the Carousel. In Random mode, the program will now search into subfolders for media files. So you can generate a randomized playlist of an entire directory tree.

I have tried Peasy/Carousel in a few puppies now and it seems to work well in all of them. The v3.5 .pet is perfect for my needs.

I especially like the fact that you have added both Peasy and Carousel to the rightclick "open with" menu. Makes it so easy to get my whole music collection playing randomly while I carry on with other work.

Really like the way I don't have to even think about a playlist with Carousel - it does it all itself. Nice.

Hi.

I do use these icons for PeasyMP3 in my LazY Puppy.

RSH

EDIT:

I've added a .pet to install. It includes the .desktop files (DE & EN edition) plus the Icons in /usr/share/pixmaps, plus symbolic links to these Icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps.

@R-S-H: Thank you for the icons. Could you please add some instructions on how to create a desktop shortcut that uses these icons? That might be helpful to new users.

@charlie6: Thanks for the translation. It looks like I got the gettexting correct the first time!

I will be posting another version shortly that has a new startup feature.

Hi.

I've added a .pet to install to my post above.

It includes the .desktop files (DE & EN edition) plus the Icons in /usr/share/pixmaps, plus symbolic links to these Icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps.

So, to have a desktop shortcut one needs just to move the .desktop file from /usr/share/applications onto the desktop.

I think, this is the easiest way for new users.
