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.

Thanks for PeasyMP3 works great on my eeepc 900a. it only has a 4gig ssd so not much room for music but PeasyMP3 plays radio streams nicely.

Thanks and Great work!!!

A tip for novices like me:

You can save a step if you play directories via the 'open with' route. Customise the Rox menu to 'Play with peasymp3' when you right-click any folder. Brilliant!

Thanks for that tip.

I have posted a new version on Page 1 that has improved support for Internet radio streams.

Another thought occurred to me - would it be possible to detect when the program was fed a directory from a customised Rox context menu and if so automatically start playing? I can thing of no logical reason not to do this from the users perspective!

Cheers

I looked at this idea once and decided against it.

For example, my default .peasymp3 folder has a bunch of Internet radio stations. I rarely want to auto-play the first alphabetical entry in the playlist.

It's only one more mouse click to start playback.

Maybe if the first file in the directory is an mp3 etc rather than a link? Or perhaps a command line switch?? Just thoughts...

PeasyMP3 v3.5 now plays MIDI files through Timidity. Here are the instructions for installing Timidity.

1. Install the timidity_wary53-2.13.1.pet. Click the grey Download button on the left.

2. Download this soundfont package to a temporary location.

3. Copy the file soundfont.sf2 to the folder /usr/share/timidity (or link it).

4. Using one of your MIDI files, test Timidity from the command line: timidity xxx.mid

5. Make PeasyMP3 the default player for MIDI files.
a. Right-click on a MIDI file
b. Select: Set Run Action
c. Enter the command: peasymp3 "$@"

Would it make sense to have a 'stop' button?

With streamed media this would allow one to temporarily suspend the stream instead of having to quit the program or fiddle with a volume control. Pressing 'start' afterwards would reconnect the stream (or restart an mp3).
