    Hi,

    This is a catch-up post. Below is a compilation of work already completed from the "Up Next" list for release 1.1. I'm currently working on general layout, text wrap and button size issues, the timed power off feature, and the issue with compilation album (various artists) not being shown as a whole album in the Library panel.

    Regards,
    tcmods.org
    TC

    SUMMARY

    1) DONE! investigate odd bit depths being reported by MPD
    2) DONE! fix Library parsing bug when song title contains a colon ":"
    5) DONE! favicons for both desktop and mobile (save to home screen)
    7) DONE! implement save/load/delete custom playlists (fix up and complete this feature)

    DETAIL

    1) DONE! investigate odd bit depths being reported by MPD

    Max over at the MPD forums provided a nice explaination of whats going on with MPD bit depths. This is what MPD is doing:

    (1) MP3: The property of bit depth does not exist in compressed file formats until they are decoded back to PCM. MPD uses libmad plugin to decode MP3 format and libmad outputs 28/44.1 PCM of which 24 bits are used by MPD.

    (2) WAV: The libsndfile plugin is used by MPD to decode WAV format files and this decoder always outputs a bit depth of 32 bits.

    (3) HW_PARAMS: This is the bit depth reported by ALSA and is what is actually sent to the audio device. If its lower than the MPD decoded bit depth, it reflects MPD falling back to a PCM bit depth that the audio hardware indicates it can support. This was the case in the WAV example where the decdoded bit depth was 32 bits but the DAC (a BerryNOS) can handle only up to 24 bit.
    Bottom line is that MPD bit depth reporting is OK, but its not necessarily the source bit depth but rather the bit depth output by the particular decoder MPD is using.

    I think all thats needed is a bit of editing in the Input Media section of the Audio Info popup to indicate what the bit depth actually reflects. Something like "Decoded to:".

    2) DONE! fix Library parsing bug when song title contains a colon ":"

    This is where if a song title contains a colon character ":" everything after the colon gets truncated. It affects song title display in the Library, Playback and Playlist panels! BTW, song titles with a colon are commonly found in the Classical genre.

    In the example song titles below, the parsing bug would cause only "Szymanowski" to be displayed.

    Szymanowski: Mazurka In G Flat, Op. 50/1
    Szymanowski: Mazurka In E Minor, Op. 50/2

    The attached screen shots below (green and blue) show the Library panel before and after the bug fix.

    7) DONE! Implement save/load/delete custom playlists (fix up and complete this feature)

    The feature now includes the following fixes and new capabilities:

    - FIX: Saved playlist name not showing up in Browse panel
    - NEW: On click, list items in saved playlist
    - NEW: Action menu for saved playlist includes "Delete this playlist"
    - NEW: Action menu for saved playlist items includes Add, Add/play, Add/replace/play

    The attached screen shots below (carrot) show a before and 2 after Browse panels.

    Hi,

    Just finished fixing the layout and text wrapping issues in the Browse and Playlist panels

    In the attached "before" screen shot (blue), the title text wraps but the row height does not expand. This causes the line of text below the title to crash into the next row.

    The "after" screen shots (amethyst) show the Playlist and Browse panels with the row height nicely expanding when the title text wraps.

    Hi,

    Here is an update on mods to the Library panel to improve the layout, text readability and action buttons.

    The attached images show before (blue) and after (alizarin) screen shots of the panel. The new panel has a 20/30/50% horizontal layout providing more room for album names, double high song rows, larger text, larger Addsong button and three standard action buttons (Add, AddPlay, AddReplacePlay) on the bottom for handling song lists.

    The 1.1 release is looking like this so far

    ======================

    - FIX: Incorrect string function used in scripts_playback.js, $('.context-menu a').click(function()
    - FIX: Song position not passed in library, Play All action
    - FIX: Saved playlist name not preloading in Playlist panel entry box

    New Features

    - NEW: Saved playlist On Click action lists items in the playlist
    - NEW: Saved playlist root Action Menu includes "Delete this playlist"
    - NEW: Saved playlist item Action Menu includes only Add, Add/play, Add/replace/play (same for Browse item)

    Probably not quite the right place to ask ... but does this support "composer" as a browsing option?

    ...in my opinion / experience...
    While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.
    And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.
    keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

    Not currently, but I'd like to put together a list of mods for "Library Management". What would you like to see with regard to browsing the Library by composer?

    I would want a hierarchy where I could browse by first selecting "Composer" and then as a second layer need to be able to select either by Orchestra (could be Artist); Conductor or Composition (Group). Then from there select the same till you target down to what you want to listen to.

    Hi,

    If your filter criteria are actual ID3v2 metadata tags and they appear in the MPD database, then it might be possible to create views of the Library panel just for Classical music.

    What would need to be defined are the tag hierarchies. For example:

    View #1 - Composer / Artist(Orchestra) / Album / Songs
    Ralph Vaughan Williams / Sinfonia Of London / English String Music / songs...
    View #2 - Composer/Conductor/Album/Songs
    Ralph Vaughan Williams / John Barbirolli / English String Music / songs...

    How do you use tags in your collection?

    Hi,

    I started working on the Clock Radio feature but became distracted thinking about how to handle Compilation Albums in the Library. Currently, each compilation album shows up as a series of individual albums, one for each artist in the compiltion. This is due to how the Library is organized.

    First step was to figure out how 'jotak's elegant and amazing core Library filtering and rendering code works and then determine whether its possible to integrate Compilation Albums so that each one shows up as a single, rolled up album.

    It appears to be doable, but I'm not quite finished yet. When complete I'll post release 1.1

    The attached images show before (river) and after (carrot) screen shots of the panel.

    Hi,

    Just a quick update on what's been completed so far for release 1.2

    (1) The album art lookup module has been updated to use the mpd music root as the album art root and set the necessary symlink automatically on player startup. This appears to support arbitrary music dir structures for NAS and USB sources, and it eliminates the need for manual symlink setup.

    (2) bug fixes!

    Next is to look at improving the Webradio feature by adding new choices to the action menu.

    - Add new station
    - Edit station
    - Delete station
    - Import stations


    Regards,
    tcmods.org
    TC

    ======================
    1.2 Release 2014-10-DD
    ======================

    Bug fixes

    - FIX: Remove extra WDET file present in Webradio update 3
    - FIX: Wrong copy cource for webradio batch update in utility.sh
    - FIX: album art lookup failing on usb source due to case sensitivity

    Updates

    - UPD: Improved album art lookup eliminates need for specific music dir structure or manual symlink
    - UPD: Webradio update 4

    Hi,

    The attached image shows a prototype Action Menu that contains additional functions (create/edit/delete/import) for managing Webradio stations.

    I added a UI mod to this new code to highlight the item row when the Action Menu button is clicked so it's clear which item is associated with the Action Menu. This works for all sources in the Browse panel

    This seems useful. At some point I am going to work on Volumio again in order to use the Twisted Pear Botic BB Black>i2s. I'll be keeping this in mind. Thanks for the efforts TC!

    Hi,

    Completing the mods to the Library panel, the song rows now have a standard Action menu. Screen shot below.

    When this code is finished and tested, I'll push out release 1.2 beta2 and then start working on the code behind the new Action menu for the Playlist panel.

    Hi,

    One last mod for the Library panel

    Non-scrollable, click enabled column headers to replace the scrollable "ALL..." item in the lists which require scrolling back to the top to click. Screen shot below.

    Hi,

    Here are some new configuration settings that have been added to tcmods.conf file

    clock_radio_enabled: No
    clock_radio_playitem: BLANK
    clock_radio_starttime: 06-00-AM
    clock_radio_stoptime: 07-00-AM
    clock_radio_volume: 8
    clock_radio_shutdown: No
    timer_knob_countup: Yes
    timer_knob_radiocount: Yes

    The code behind the timer knob settings controls how the time is displayed in the knob. The code is complete but there are no UI controls yet to toggle the settings.

    timer_knob_countup: Yes/No
    - count up from 00:00 to the song time or count down from the song time to 00:00

    timer_knob_radiocount: Yes/No
    - when radio station is playing, continuously count up from 00:00 or just display 00:00

    In the relnotes below please note additional UI improvements for small screens (iPhone 5 sized) that make the player easier to use by providing more space for controls, text, and modal popups.
