Hi Bob

This is due to the way your tablet handles multitasking. When you do shuffle all or play a playlist that hasn't been saved, the web app pings the dune every second to check the play status and position. This is done to detect the end of a song in order to start the next (or a random one when shuffling).

When the browser is not the application running on the forefront it cannot do this check and therefore loses track and stops.

The solution is to save the playlist before playing it. However playlists saved via the webapp are limited to 300 songs as it will take too long to save. You could possibly create a playlist within DMM (pc application) containing all the songs and play that in shuffle mode from within the webapp.

To keep you informed, I'm working on the new version of PC/Webapp of DMM.

On the WebApp side the new features will be (limited) :
  • multilanguage (english, french, portuguese)
  • possibility to adjust the size of various elements (lists, covers, buttons, header/footer) to cope with the variety of display resolution, e.g. tablets
  • Vol - / Vol + buttons
  • Possibility to add songs to a playlist without having that playlist being played

If you have other ideas, let me know
Alberto

That makes sense and is not a big deal really. What you have accomplished is outstanding. Any new features would just be icing on the cake. I did prefer the color scheme of the 1.2.8 web app, but that is minor thing. It was just easier on my old eyes


Thanks Alberto,
Bob

Hi there

I'm working still on DMM

Specifically I'm adding the following features (see below). I wanted to ask the community if you are interested in these features or if current DMM is just enough for you.
BTW, this will most likely be the last DMM release apart bug fixes and apart if I get a lot of requests for new capabilities

PC APP
  • Composers page
  • Alphabetical access
    • Global ABC page (pointing to Albums or Artists), as for now ... or
    • Choose if you want to have an alphabetical access for Albums, Artists/Composers, Genres. If this option is not checked, then you go straight to the full list of covers/pictures
  • Possibility to always create a Folder page for folder-based navigation
  • Report after scan + View db infos. This allows to have detailed info about the content and changes in the database (e.G. albums, songs, artists added, etc)
  • Import/Export of m3u playlists
  • Upgrade from previous version. choosing this option a previous release is migrated to the new ones automatically (apart the export that should still be done).

WEB APP

  • UI customization (size of various components for better look on smartphones/tablets)
  • MultiLanguage support (English, French, Portuguese)
  • Volume - / Volume +
  • Add items to a playlist (or create a new one) without having something being played

Let me know
Alberto

Hi Alberto, for me option 5 "Import/Export of m3u playlists" will be much useful and appreciated.
Thanks for your continued efforts and support

Hi Alberto
I will vote for
  • Composers page
  • Report after scan + View db infos
And if you could made it possible not to play the songs alphabetic in the collections, when I use the tablet version of DMM.
