View Full Version : Softsqueeze 2.0 "Now Playing" bug

Softsqueeze 2.0a11
Slimserver 6.0b1
Java 1.4.2_06
Fedora Core 3

When I browse to album and press play, it works, but the NOW PLAYING
screen seems to be stuck at track 1 and never changes to tracks 2,3, etc
as the playlist goes along. Even after some additional navigating and a
push of the "NOW PLAYING" button, it goes back to track 1 even though
I'm deep into the playlist.

BTW Richard, excellent job on the new fonts, animations, and VU meters.

I can confirm this.

I have been working on this with Richard today.

It turns out that it is mostly fixed in the 3-10-05 Nightly of 6.0b. The
remaining problem of the Track Title information not updating is related
to a bug in the SlimServer itself when the title is long enough to require
scrolling. Richard is filing a bug for this, so it is put on the to-do
list.

This is partly fixed in the latest nightly, see also
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1013. I will try to get that
fixed over the weekend.

Thanks. The real credit for the fonts, animations and visualizers should
go to Dean and Vidur. I just copy their fine work :).

Richard
