The color-themes.xml file within the WCM skin folder is what you need to look at modifying.

Have added it to the todo list to re-check for a later build.

Preview Build Discussion / Re: Two problems with streaming podcasts
« on: September 09, 2021, 10:09:00 PM »
Replacing in_mp3 isn't a trivial thing to do as too many other things annoyingly have to go through it especially when it comes to streaming. It has to be replaced but as I've tried to explain before, I don't have an ETA on when that'll be done & I'm already a month late on a new public preview build despite my plans. It'll eventually be resolved.

It's also very likely that you're other issue is related as you've noted.

I've been struggling with Winamp versions since I upgraded to Windows 10 ... ❤️
You're welcome & that's good to hear it's working nicely for you 👍

The first issue is primarly due to the Winamp 5.666 in_mp3 plug-in & what it's doing vs what the remote server is doing - pausing a stream (be it a file or 'live') is always a weird one to deal with & if left too long then the remote connection will time it out (hence it stopping) but it's also very likely that in_mp3 isn't doing what's needed to try to resume the connection from the prior position (subject to the remote side even supporting it to begin with).

The second issue, Preferences -> Media Library -> History -> change the resume option for any applicable. As none of the streams will be treated as podcasts since that information is only stored in the local library database for local files - it's probably something I need to consider adding a fallback to check if a stream is recognised within the currently stored feeds information.

for people with similar problem, just remove the "[[ ]]"
Or wait for the fixed build :) At least you've got a solution until then.

I've now had a look & it's an issue with my in-file lyrics metadata parsing (the double brackets at the start was causing the problem). Will get that resolved for the next set of builds.

I can replicate a lock-up when trying to access the file. Will have a look into what's going wrong & thank you for providing the example file!

Within the episode list if you've got it sorted by most recent then it should be feasible to determine if it's new or not. However something I've already been thinking about before all of this was either having a different icon shown next to the items to also distinguish between it being downloaded or if it's been played (though that's not something currently able to be seen in the internal betas as the icons aren't currently supported with the replacement library core).

The other thing instead of only using an icon (which isn't great from an accessibility view point) would be to add a 'last played' column into the episodes area & have pull that information in from the history / local library plug-ins. That might be a simpler way to achieve some of what you're wanting with the added clarification that you've provided.

I do however think that some sort of overall view (or even a complete re-design of everything podcast related instead of still mirroring a 5.666-like experience) might be the better way to get all of what you seem to be wanting, it's just how to get it to fit in with things as-is without making a duplicate interface as I otherwise quite like the existing podcast root handling for what it was designed to do.

Whatever might eventually get done, having a 'last played' part in the episodes lists is something I need to do sooner rather than later as that's useful to have no matter what else might be done later on :)

General Discussion / Re: Best Way To Prevent Video Playback
« on: August 31, 2021, 10:34:28 PM »
It's not a beta build specific option & hasn't been moved from being a sub-node of the Playback node. Maybe you've already disabled the video support. If you go to Preferences -> Advanced -> top of the first tab -> if that has the 're-enable' button show as clickable then it means you'd already attempted to disable it.

It is possible to manually force the video plug-ins to get loaded after having used that option which might be the case since you mention you're using in_dshow for everything. So if that is the case, you'd need to click re-enable, then go back to the video prefs page (after a WACUP restart) & then click on the disable button to get it to a no video state again. Otherwise you may just need to adjust what in_dshow is set to use.

The only other thing is maybe you'd removed the Video prefs page & you'd need to click on the action part of the close prefs button to get to the menu that allows you to view the hidden prefs pages & check that for video being listed.

Disable video support via the video preferences page & after doing that if needed disable any other input plug-ins that relate to video formats (this can be a bit messy since mp4 files can be audio only though it has an option to only play audio from mp4 files).

I've been thinking about it a bit more & a local library podcast filter view would probably do most of what's needed (assuming the podcasts get added to the local library database but ignoring the episodes that have yet to be downloaded) if it's just a means of seeing what there is.

Alternatively, a variant of the downloads view with it set to show everything (downloaded or not) might be a better way of seeing everything in one go vs an 'all' option in the existing podcast root. As that's going to make it easier to then have all of the information listed vs doing a specific setup for one item in the root view. I get that it's also adding more to how things work so I'd need to have more of a think but it might be suitable as a toggle mode in the existing root view plus it'd help to implement part of the wanting to search for things aspect.

Either way there's options to consider as I don't think the pre-aggregate your feed approach is a viable solution when all of the information is there locally, it's just getting it into a valid state to work with. That's the main why reason I can't just suddenly change the existing root view & an 'all' item as it's been based around only seeing on feed & it's episodes at a time instead of just showing things however & all jumbled together.

Ah, that's a bit more involved than what I've just thrown together vs how things are handled within the podcast root node view.

What I've added for now is shown in the attached screenshot where it'll run through all of the podcast feeds & either add all episode entries within a feed in chronological order (it won't apply that overall but each grouping of episodes from a feed will be date sorted) or only the newest one into the main playlist.

Am now expecting that's not really going to fit with what you were hoping for now you've clarified what you were looking for.

The nearest approximation for now would have to be to either look at the downloads sub-view & just grab the most recent items from there or have a custom local library view that looks for recently added podcasts (e.g. ispodcast = 1 && dateadded > [3 days ago]) but that's not going to deal with a podcast that adds new episodes daily.

Otherwise it's going to need some coding on my part to enumerate the podcast feeds & generate a playlist of just the most recent episodes. The question for you is how / where you'd expect to be able to access that? As I can relatively easily add something to the podcast node's right-click menu &/or within the view though from reading things, I can't tell if you're expecting it to maybe be a specific view / library playlist entry (which makes it a bit more complicated).

That does actually work but only for http:// streams & not https:// streams (as a lot of podcasts have gone towards). Until I replace the Winamp provided plug-in responsible for doing most of the streaming (in_mp3) then these issues are going to persist as it's down to that plug-in not being able to correctly cope with https:// streams - the rest of the player is otherwise fine with them & will already do as you want for custom playlists (it's the actual playback that's the problem).
