Date: Tue, 5 Jan 2016 09:04:53 +0000 [thread overview] Message-ID: <20160105090453.GA30328@dcvr.yhbt.net> (raw) Unforseen bugs aside, there'll be one user-visible change to dtas-console for users of software volume control: ref: http://80x24.org/dtas.git/patch?id=7bed564d979ce7e player: implement software volume control This is on a linear scale from 0.0 (mute) to 1.0 (no change) This is in the MPRIS spec and mpd as well (scaled to 0-100) This changes dtas-console key bindings (0/9) slightly to match mplayer more closely. ReplayGain preamp adjustment has moved from '0'/'9' to '7'/'8' keys. The 'm' key also toggles mute state (the pre-mute volume is stored in the dtas-console instance, not in dtas-player itself). Now, I'm also adding the display of the tracklist status for the "repeat" and "shuffle" states (normally controlled via "dtas-tl repeat <true|false|1>" and "dtas-tl shuffle <true|false>" commands) I figure, maybe there ought to be hotkeys for toggling shuffle and repeat states from dtas-console. My main point of reference (the command-line mplayer) doesn't have hotkeys for setting/toggling those; so I'm not sure what to pick. Basically, I've always wanted to reuse existing users muscle memory from existing hotkeys as much as possible; and I figure these are reasonably common hotkeys in existing music players. So, maybe 's' (maybe even 'S') to toggle Shuffle. We're already using 'r'/'R' to cycle through ReplayGain modes; but maybe we can switch replayGain to 'g'/'G' instead and use 'r'/'R' to cycle through Repeat states... Any ideas on what hotkey players to steal^H^H^H^H^Hdraw inspiration from? ...But, I'll soon figure out some of the tracklist impedance mismatches with mpd emulation and think less about UI on our end; as users will most likely use mpd clients for this, anyways :) Anyways, food for thought if you're bored out there. For reference, all the current hotkeys slated for the v0.13 release are documented at: http://80x24.org/dtas.git/plain/Documentation/dtas-console.txt?id=44248402de
