Now it's compiled I've come across another problem :(

First time I ran it, from the terminal, I added my music folder and it went off and scanned all the files - during this I got a *lot* of these error but otherwise it kept on running:

TagLib: MPEG::Header::parse() -- Invalid sample rate.
TagLib: MPEG::Properties::read() -- Page headers were invalid.

...then when it got to 100% it suddenly closed with the error:

TagLib: Could not open file /home/iain/Music/Feeder/The Singles/01 - Feeder - Come Back Around.ogg
Segmentation fault

If I try to start yarock again, I just get the same error again straight away.

I deleted the ~/.config/yarock folder, temporarily deleted the "Feeder" folder from my music, and tried again, and got the same error from a different folder this time.

Deleted the config folder again, and this time just added one subfolder from Music at a time - some worked OK, others brought about the error again.

I've run chmod 755 on the entire ~/Music folder so it shouldn't be a permissions issue.

Same here with older versions. To me, it happens when my playlists contains missing songs. For example, playlist with 1 song in /home/music/test.mp3. If test.mp3 is on other path (/media/win/music/test.mp3) it crashes. Maybe is your problem too.

I've 1 bestsongs playlist on Win and 1bestsongs playlist on Linux. I just moved Win playlist to other path and then YaRock can't scan it. No more core crashes.

Hope it works for you.

Hi Sebastien,

Great looking app, unfortunately I can't compile it on Linux Mint 14 KDE (KDE version 4.9.5).

Hi, it's seems that Qjson package is missing. Try to install package "libqjson/libqjson-dev".

Hi Sebastien

Thanks for this, I thought I was covered as I checked in Synaptic, and "libqjson0" was installed, but I installed "libqjson-dev" and now it works! Did the same with "libechonest-dev".

Thanks for your help!

Hi, Sebastien.

Random play just don't work fine. When I upload a playlist on the rightside bar with random mode active always sound the same song.

But when I play songs on music explorer works fine.

I've tested with so much playlists and always do the same. Only 1 song playing on rightsidebar.

I'm using Chakra 64 bits.

I have five requests.

Currently, the album art isn't shown by the veromix control interface; would be nice to get a fix.

Add an option to disable volume notifications.

Add a default state for the menu buttons (home, music browser, etc). For example, when clicking the home button, show the context page, the music browser button would show the artist page etc.

Add the option that if you click on the artist in artist view, it would open a view that showed only that artists albums.

Add a now playing playlist option.

Thanks for all your work, yarock is great.

-> ok, it's not the default behavior to browse in yarock so I have to think about it to integrate this new behavior

Add a now playing playlist option.
-> Please can you clarify this point, I don't really understand what you mean.

"Please can you clarify this point, I don't really understand what you mean."
Right now, if you double click on a song or album, it doesn't really have any apparent way of seeing what will be played next. I would like an option to always replace current playlist with that album, artist or song if you click on them from the interface.

OK, You can already make a "Ctrl+ Click" : items will be queued in "play-queue widget".

However, I will try to add more option or to make it more convenient....

I have reported a bug on CoverGloobus project to add Yarock support.

In fact you can already add (basic) support for Yarock :

1) download CoverGloobus source
2) add YaRock.py in src/players/ directory woth followings contents
####
from gettext import gettext as _

from generic.Mpris import Mpris

class YaRock(Mpris):

__title__ = 'YaRock'
__version__ = '0.3'
__authors__ = 'Sebastien Amardeilh <sebastien.amardeilh+Yarock@gmail.com>'
__desc__ = _('Yarock music player plugin')

DBUS_NAME = 'org.mpris.yarock'
####
3) update Makefile.am in src/players by adding YaRock.py in the list of players

4) build CoverGloobus
./autogen.sh
make
sudo make install

Hi, first, this player is very nice and easy to use, which is great!

When running YaRock for the first time, the following message apears:

"No collection seems to be setup
Do you want to setup your collection Now"

There is a missing question '?' mark.

Also, there is croped text for me in Settings->Player, in "Use ReplayGain track metada..." [1]

I've notitced that to change the Shortcuts, it has to be clicked twice, which seems to me a bit unintuitive, considering that there is no function for one-click.

Do you have any service for the translations, like Transifex?
Also, which is the name, Yarock or YaRock? Both are displayed in the program.

Hi,

thanks for your feedback, I have noticed all your remarks and I will try to fix this points for the next release.

Translations can be found at https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/yarock-translation/

However, the translations are not up to date with the last 0.9.61 release. I will update it as soon as possible.

Sorry, can't login to launhcpad. These bugs fixed (thanks): Bug #927554 and #927557.

New version is finely improved too (thanks). But right click menus have some issues (maybe with my dark system theme –pure Qt on Ubuntu minimal + Fluxbox): items duplicated + tracks unreadable. Besides, stars in track view are unclickable, dysfunctional.

Fixing these and a better implementation of playlist management (Bug #927747) would make YaRock the best audio player in the whole planet! Otherwise there's not a single alternative to iTunes in Linux despite zillion audio apps, let alone as a Qt app.
