I've been testing playmusic by THUNOR

and I saw an interesting feature.

Click on the name of the file and the location or details are shown.
I don't see how this can extend pMusic?
In the main window track info is shown beside the albumart, while filename with path is shown in statusbar.

Hover a track in the playqueue will also show complete /path/file as a tooltips.

Please explain if I misunderstand your point.

I just thought it was interesting technology when I saw it.
By the way, your new beta version is noticeably faster in precise puppy 5.7.1.

01micko mentioned many find/grep commands running at first startup of pMusic. I have now dived into it, and tries to understand and improve...
  • Many finds and greps has become one find and grep even if user actively adds/manages tracks in pMusic. This should reduce the scan-time.
  • I have given the first-run scan a lower cpu priority (nice -n 18 )
  • 'find' is much slower on my ntfs filesystem than my ext4. This could be an issue for many users, and a solution could be to skip scan if filesystem is not linux-friendly. - But after all, I guess music files is likely to be stored on both vfat or ntfs for compatibility reasons, so this doesn't sound too smart.
  • 'find' becomes even slower if filesystem contains errors...
  • I have not tested if splitting 'find' into parallel tasks could give a noticeable speed improvement. It would be possible (I think) to ie. run one 'find' command for each /mnt/ folder. This would require a bit of coding...
Please share your thoughts

New Beta uploaded
Beta 4 focus on the first run (music scan) experience.
Hoping for feedback from those of you having large systems with several partitions/harddrives. Please rename (backup) /root/.pmusic to get a fresh start. How is it working for you?
Speed? Understandable? Result?

Have you read my previous post?

Not a "large" system; one 128GB SSD boot (4 primary partitions), one 320 GB hard drive (3 primary partitions)

Works and stable. This is a complete new subsystem/app.

Hope this gets its own thread when it becomes final because of its major improvements, its look and its behavior this has over the old versions.

Thx, again.

Thanks. Playing radio now.
LuPu Super2.

Despite ffmpeg >= 1.2 being missing ?

~> which ffmpeg
/mnt/home/mybin/ffmpeg
~> ls -l /mnt/home/mybin/ffmpeg
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 84264 2016-03-12 20:49 /mnt/home/mybin/ffmpeg

~> /mnt/home/mybin/ffmpeg -version
ffmpeg version 0.8.11, Copyright (c) 2000-2011 the FFmpeg developers
built on Jun 6 2012 17:48:40 with gcc 4.4.3


Probably I'm confused.

pMusic 5 will play with ffmpeg 0.8.
Actually, it will mostly work just fine with ffmpeg 0.8.
But there are features that relies on more recent versions of ffmpeg, so you shouldn't be surprised when things are not turning the expected way. That said, using the radio-streaming frontend should not involve such (I think).

Because of this, I have to state the dependency of ffmpeg 1.2. This version of ffmpeg is 3 years old, and it corresponds with the age of gtkdialog 0.8.4 which is the other core dependency.

Subject description: in Precise Puppy Linux
 

Since new pMusic 5 requires ffmpeg > 1.2, Precise users should install this pet as well:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/ffmpeg-1.2.1-i486-precise.pet

NOTE: You may need to delete /root/.pmusic and restart pMusic.

NOTE 2: The ffmpeg seems to be compiled with different configuration options, so it is possible that other apps don't work properly, for example I wasn't able to take screenshots with SFR's Take A Shot! app. I haven't tested shinobar's FFConvert yet.

I installed both the newer ffmpeg.pet and Pmusic 5.0.0 in Quirky Werewolf 64. I haven't done anything with it yet except start it to see if it would start. While it seemed to start ok, I noticed that the version at the top of the GUI window does not agree with the one at the bottom left. Is that because I installed it without first removing the version that came with Werewolf?

Nice catch Smile
- Upgrade from an earlier version
- No internet connection
- No chosen track/radio to play

You succeed to find a variant not tested - thanks a lot.
Fixed for 5.0.1
