Updated to v0.2

New Features:
  • Play Queue Menu
  • Headset Button Bindings

Notes:
I haven't actually tested the headset button bindings as I dont have a suitable headset, but I copied the code from the Jolla Media app, so if they work there they should work in SirenSong too.

Just tested SirenSong and it's really snappy. Good work.

I would really like a player that makes use of replay gain tags (in .ogg files in my case) so the volume doesn't jump up and down between tracks. Just wondering if you had considered adding this.

Glad you like it! It's currently serving my music playing purposes quite well.

I've got a few ideas floating in my head about this kind of thing.

I did not know that its part of the .ogg spec to have gain tags, I thought I could make an external service that would parse the music file and decide what volume it should be played at, and store the info in a tracker tag. In the past I have run my collection through a normalisation program like mp3gain.

If the tags already exist, they might be picked up by Tracker already, which makes things easier

Not sure when I will be able to get around to implementing some of this stuff, hoping to get a new version out soon with MPRIS DBus support and a few other fixes.

EDIT: there looks like a number of different library parsers and players that support the tag method so this is definitely something to add to the TODO list, thanks

I'd love to have folder sorting, and have the ability of adding a folder and all his subfolders and files to the play queue with 1 or 2 clicks.

Yeah next big thing to tackle will be to increase the flexibility of the song library so you can view and add things in different ways.

Might take a little while but we'll get there

I installed it, get this screen https://openrepos.net/sites/default/...-22-25-291.png when launched, no letters are active. No menus, no controls, no anything...

What's wrong?

Great music player
Hopefully you will add playlist/folder feature in the near future.

This can happen if your music files arent tagged properly, particularly the 'track title' field, as that's pretty core to how the menu functions.

Sometimes tracker drops all the metadata and needs reindexing using 'tracker-control -se'

You can also use 'tracker-info [filename]' on an mp3 file to see what information tracker has picked up about your files, looking in particular for nmm:MusicPiece and nmm:Title.

I plan to rework the menu so it can show items based on filename alone, but for now you need to have at least Title in the ID3 tags.
