Hey Thanks. Another question: F5 / 5 Toggles the Media Library, and also switches between 2/3 column mode for the Media Library. Most of the time I'm in 3 column mode. Can I disable the 2 column toggle? I keep switching to it by mistake and for me, it takes longer to load then 3 column mode.

no, since that's actually the same keybinding as for switching to media library. but you can use this patch for it: http://omploader.org/vMmtycw

When I try to get the lyrics for this song, ncmpc++ crashes. Also, the hangul render correctly in the "Browse" window, but in the "Playlist" window, they don't. Any ideas?

I can't reproduce. I need result of `ncmpcpp --version`, `locale` and backtrace of the crash. Also, what encoding are id3 tags written in? All I can see is:
Code:
Title: Hot Stuff
Artist: ???
Album: ???? ??? OST

I use utf-8 (but maybe that's just missing font, what language is that?).

Hi unK,

I think it would be nice if:

- when applying a filter against the playlist the currently playing song would still be highlighted (like in the non-filtered playlist)

- the next songs could be picked from the ones in the filter, not the whole playlist (I know this may not be possible)

Thank you, keep up the good work :D .

it is a dependency. update your mpd overlay as it was added recently.

about the lyrics and ncmpcpp-0.3.5: see https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5965849.html#5965849 and post below it. just update to the newest version and it'll be fine.

1. it's fixed in git. you can wait for 0.4.2, use git version or apply the patch to 0.4.1, it's here.
2. see https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5847947.html#5847947 currently is a no-go, though I may implement something like that in the future, but that's just a random speculation ;)

Hi unK,

I noticed that ncmpcpp crashes if you press space in the playlist window, if the playlist is empty. Best way to reproduce is to press 'c' and then 'space'.

Secondly, I have a hunch that ncmpcpp is somehow crashing screen (I always use screen). Can't trace it or reproduce it though, so I can't be sure, but I've had it happen several times, so it seems more than a coincidence.

Coming back to a former feature request of mine: a pre-listening function.

Since mpd now happily supports multiple soundcards via "audio_output" isn't it possible to create a browser window (searchable of course ;-) ) in which the highlighted songs are played immediately with a defined audio_output?

This would be the *killer* feature for me and let me switch /immediately/ from PyTone to mpd+ncmpcpp 8-)

I think it's technically not possible. There is no way to make mpd play song only with specified output out of the box. You can automatically turn off all audio outputs except the wanted one but that's just workaround.

Screen indeed has quite a few issues. I would strongly suggest taking a look at tmux as an alternative terminal multiplexer.

Sorry to disturb during the holidays...
and thanks a lot for an incredibly nice mpd client developed at an incredible speed!
I somehow can't figure out how "selected_item_prefix/suffic" works. It doesn't seem to change the colors of the selected lines. Right now I added an asterisk (*) at the end, which is shown and it's color does change accordingly, but the tag in front stays the default color.
Right now I have
Code:
selected_item_prefix = "$3*"
selected_item_suffic = "*$9"

Only the last asterisk shows, not the first one.
Also, if I put "-$3*" as prefix and "*$9-" as suffix, only the asterisk and dash after the tag appear, but in the right colors.
I'd expect this: Normal lines are blue. I select a line and it becomes green. The dashes/asterisks were just for testing. Following unselected lines are blue again. If that's not how this function is supposed to work, please correct me.
Thanks a lot.
Edit: The now_playing_prefix/suffix work a little differently, there the first AND last dashes/asterisks appear, also in the right colors, but the tags are in the default color again. Also, the "bold" goes away, even though I wouldn't mind it. In fact, it could be a config option as well.
Whatcha say?

that was actually a bug, it's fixed in git/0.5.

colors works in the same way in now_playing_suffix/prefix and in selected_item_prefix/suffix.

yes, that's exactly the way it should work (and afaik it does ;))

Quote:

there are format options for bolding/underlining/reversing colors. see example config file for further description.


btw, ncmpcpp-0.5 released.

changes:
  • bash completion support
  • libmpdclient2 support
  • "idle" command support
  • new screen: mpd server info
  • new feature: sort songs in browser by mtime
  • new feature: lyrics "refreshing"
  • new feature: toggle replay gain mode
  • new feature: support for centered cursor
  • new feature: add selected items to playlist at given position
  • playlist: support for range sort/reverse
  • tag editor: support for numerating tracks using xx/xx format
  • a lot of minor fixes

enjoy.

Yeah, the first asterisk shows now, thanks. Nevertheless it seems that the "normal" color format for the lines overrides what I set in the pre-/suffix stuff. The asterisks do get the color I choose as pre-/suffix, but the rest of the line doesn't change, except for the bold/reverse/underline stuff. Does it really work for you? If yes, please show me your config...

I really like the new feature to add files at a special position in the playlist...but how do I use it? I'd guess by marking files (no matter if in playlist or browser) and pressing 'M' (capital m, that is) like the help screen says. But that doesn't work, at least not for stuff I mark in the browser.

Thanks for your help.

Sorry, for being a nuisance, but I would like to know why the search with ncmpc++ takes a lot longer than directly with mpc? If that's just the case for me, I'll have to dig into my network, but it seems odd.

What view mode do you use, columns or "classic" one?

Since mpd doesn't support regular expressions, ncmpcpp has to fetch whole database to search in it. If your mpd is running on a remote host, downloading db can take some time.

I use classic mode.
Is there some way to turn off that regex search? If I use something like "mpc search any BLABLA" it is pretty quick...Wouldn't that be a good option?

Do you have explicitly set colors for all tags in song_list_format? That may be the only case why setting color in selected_item_prefix doesn't change your line color, it can change only tags that don't have custom color set (and thus their color is main_window_color). Try with default settings, it *has* to work.

No, because it doesn't support regular expressions. I can however add another search option, that would use internal mpd searching. Please fill a feature request on mpd mantis (http://www.musicpd.org/mantis/) about that, I'm very likely to forget about features requested here.

That's right. And kinda makes sense, that it doesn't work then. Theoretically, it could be implemented to override those settings though. In my opinion, that would make sense. But suit yourself.

Will do that. That would be awesome. For me the mpd-way of searching seems enough for most cases.

Speaking of search, I'd like to somehow be able to sort/search tracks or albums or artists by recently added. I know mpd keeps track of mtimes so in theory it should be possible. I ask because as my collection grows, I sometime have a hard time remembering what I just added after a few days. Any plans to have a feature like this?
