Hey Scott,

just noticed a strange behavior with my permanently cached songs and albums. Suddenly albums of which I know for a fact that I cached them are not marked as cached anymore. The can't be played back instantly as well but they get re-cached when I hit the play button.
So I looked into the filesystem of my sdcard and the files seem to be there just where I expect them to be.
Then I re-cached some albums and look at the filesystem again. And now I see that the directory name pattern seems to have changed.
Let me give you an example:
I have the soundtrack for the movie "Drive" cached on my phone. As this is a multi-artist album some of the songs were stored in the directory "Cliff Martinez/Drive" (the album artist) and the other songs in directories named after each artist and containing a subdirectory with the album name.
After recaching the complete album I can see that all the songs are now stored in one directory called "Drive OST - [2011]". Thats actually the directory name under which the album is stored on my server.
That would be no problem but as DSub seems to not find the files in directories named after the old naming pattern does this mean I have to recache all my albums? That would be bad...

Thanks
Arno


EDIT:
I think I just figured out what the cause for the behavior described above is: this has nothing to do with DSub but with the fact that ampache changed its naming pattern (see https://github.com/ampache/ampache/issues/1213). And I recently updated my ampache version to the latest development version... sorry for me ranting here. ;)

Hi,

I just switched from Subsonic to Madsonic because Mad Sonic allows to ignore Tags and instead use folder names only when creating its database. This works well but brings some limitations with dsubs way of showing lists and search results. I can search for filenames and folder names on the Webinterface but dsub only lists Tags instead of folders /files containing the Keyword. Is there a way to get dsub to show the folder names in search results?

That is Madsonic problem not changing the API to respect that choice

Just a quick question: Is it possible to have the lockscreen widget NOT disappear when I hit the pause button while a song is playing? My podcast app is able to do that and it's a very neat feature...

Anyone using Android N? I just installed Developer Preview 3 on my Nexus 6 and now DSub won't play on either of the two bluetooth devices (car, powered speaker) I have paired to the phone. Other audio apps such as TuneIn Radio seem to be OK.

Ah, sliding down the razor's edge of technology :)

so subsonic is not continuing to be open source with the release of v6.0... i know +Scott Jackson knows because he's the one who really brought this change to light on the subsonic forums.

what does this mean for the future of DSub? are you planning on expanding support for other streaming services like cherrymusic or groovebasin? are you as bummed as I was to find out this news?

i hear you on the paywall thing. but emby doesn't strictly depend on their infrastructure if you don't want to use their singular login and such. i do pay for a license for it, though, so i'm not sure about the specifics of how NOT having a license affects API calls and stuff like that. i know that certain apps won't work unless you've either paid for the app or paid for a subscription on your emby server, but i think that's up to the application itself (most of which are written by the emby developers) rather than the server software.

I've had issues with the widget lately. I've attached a screenshot, you can see the white outline. This is occurring on 2 different devices: A 2013 Nexus 7 running Marshmallow, and a 2013 Moto E running Lollipop.

https://github.com/daneren2005/Subsonic/issues/677 I am aware of it but as of yet I have no idea why it is there or what I can change to get rid of it.

Is it possible to show more search results? When I search by folder dsub shows only 10 results. I have a big library and that makes searching pretty useless if a band name contains a common word like "love" for example.

Not sure if this is related to Marshmallow on my LG G4 or an update to DSub... For the past couple weeks I noticed that the EQ will not stay active. It works if I turn it on and listen right away. If I stop listening and come back later it is turned off again.

Regarding cache and cache settings:
1. If I hit "Clear Cache" under "Cache/Network" will that clear permanently cached files as well?
2. To which cache does the "Cache size" setting relate? The normal cache or the permanent cache? Or both?

That should be correct

Now that I have podcasts working in my Madsonic (6.1) server, I finally got to try to listen to them with DSub on my Android Auto. Everything works great, though I notice there's no FF/Rew buttons in the simplified Android Auto interface for podcasts. I really like to skip the commercials; any chance of adding those?

Yeah I will add it to the TODO list to change those on Auto when listening to Podcasts as well

cross posting this here, as it may be something to be aware of now that more people than just myself have seen it. TL;DR: android N beta shows weird DSub behavior until you wipe the app data and start fresh.

Hi,

can't figure out the handling of the equilizer.

When I have turned it on, next time I do start Dsub it is off.

Also when I have the equilizer on and I save this with a play list, next time I call up the playlist it is turned off.

Would be nice to remember the status in both cases.

Best regards

Carsten

Hi, great App I love it.

I have a question regarding the playlist handling. If I do change the playlist and want to save it again with the same name, it saves it as a new playlist with the same name. I would expect to get the mesage override playlist yes or no.

Is this a bug?

Best regards

Carsten

No I dont. I just tried to save the same playlist with the error. What can I say it worked. Did you changed something in he App? I tried it also with the other playlist, all worked THX for your support. Keep up the good work

Is it possible to use tasker to send the play command to dsub? Wanted to use the send intent feature.

My brain obviously hasn't been in gear, been using the tasker plugin for ages but always had it on shuffle. Got it doing what I need now. Many thanks

Dsub is awesome and has been stable for a few years for me but recently I had a bad SD card. I reformatted and now dsub does not play anymore. It shows my library etc, but when it goes to buffer and play it just says 0 buffering. I tried verifying where everything caches to and checked other devices and all of them are working so it is just the instance of dsub in my phone. Any thoughts?

What do you mean there were two locations? The file system should only allow one folder of a given name...

I love Dsub, but i miss the Internet Radio tab. Is there a possibility to build the tab in the app?

It's requested in 2013: https://github.com/daneren2005/Subsonic/issues/172

It's still on the TODO list and I still haven't really decided when I want to implement it.

Hi, I have 'gapless playback' checked in the 'casting' settings but there's still a moment of silence between each track on my chromecast. Is there something else I need to do to get it working? As far as I know the app and the Chromecast are both up to date. Thanks.

Understood, good to know! (Please enable gapless for Chromecast if possible!)

Hello!

Sorry for the noob question... is there a way to start playback of currently selected song using an intent?
I am using Join to send a Tasker command to my phone, which in turn connects to my bluetooth headphones and launches DSub. However, if I use Play action in tasker, native player starts playing.

Thanks!
