Even the new package fails to install. It complains about libzip but there is no package to fill this dependency.

This problem should be fixed now, please check

Hi All. It was found that 2.1.4.13 system update replaces libav package with the new one that is incompatible with current deadbeef package. This leads to removal of this application upon update, and makes it impossible to install it again after.

For now I workarounded it by disabling "ffmpeg" plugin in this package, and application became installable again. Because of missing ffmpeg plugin some secondary audio formats may become unplayable. I will try to fix this issue properly along with next update of GUI plugin.

Yes, exactly this one...

Nope this is different...i am complaining that only default media player stutters...other players are working fine and default media player has been stuttering since day one...as for this, i don't have any patch installed so i don't think there is some conflict, but considering this is an alpha it might be bugged (no offense intended) considering i need even to remove every folder related to dead beef to make it work again...i would launch it from terminal to see the output but i don't know the exact name to input...

If player does not open at the second time, it probably means that the first instance hangs on shutdown and prevents new instance to be started. I recall I saw this problem once but I was unable to reproduce it again. Could you please execute "ps ax|grep deadbeef" command when problem happens and provide output?

Also, to start player from the terminal to see it's output you could use "deadbeef --gui silica" command.

Hmmm, this is definitely not a hangup on shutdown since 'ps' shows no instances of application before it is started second time. I have created an issue and will try to reproduce it on my side.

The thing that worries me is the bunch of warnings at the end of the log... Origin of some of them is known, but I have not seen others before. Could you please send me a list of patches and custom system software installed on you system by private message so I can check them by myself?

Patches?nope...my jolla 1 is completely stock, i don't even have patchmanager installed...i just have lpm enabled (via terminal) and an icon theme which only covers android apps...do you want to know the apps installed?

kravich's picture

No, I don't think that regular apps are involved. Since there is only two system tweaks, and lpm could be discarded due to locality of it's influence, the only thing left to check is the icon theme. And as I remember, console log of the player actually contains some warnings related to it. Icon theme you use is this one, don't you?

First bug i noticed is the fact that it opens just one time, then you need to unistall and install it again to open it...by the way, i assume this player will never have album and artist view right?

>by the way, i assume this player will never have album and artist view right?

Currently deadbeef core supports only playlists, but when original author will finish "medialibrary" plugin, various medialibrary-related use-cases (including artist and album view) could be relatively easy implemented in this port. However, it does not seem that this will happen in the near future.

Sounds more like a problem with your device, seeing as you are complaining on TJC that mediaplayers are stuttering and now you say DeadBeef needs to be removed and reinatalled to open it again - this is not the case for me, I can close and open the app repeatedly without problem, so it is not a bug, at least not in my opinion.

Awesome to see first sailfish native player that supports .cue files! I tested this app and yeah .cue files opened.

 

Very simple player lack of features but let's wait future updates. I'm keep to testing this player and gladly report possible bugs and suggest some features. Thank you for this app!

Kelmi, thank you for feedback! Yes, .cue support was the primary motivation to start development of this app =)

I hope I'll be able to provide new updates soon.
