PostPosted: Wed 11 Feb 2009, 01:18    Post subject:  Streamtuner+AlsaPlayer-476kb or Streamtuner+Aqualung-576kb  

Hi This is for Puppy 4 Series. I re-themed Streamtuner, Plus Made some themes for Aqualung. When you select a song in Streamtuner it will launch AlsaPlayer or Aqualung player, AlsaPlayer will play straight away, and Aqualung you have to press the play button. They both work great, enjoy Smile I combined these players with streamtuner because, Gxine will take upto 20% of your cpu and sound playback can be choppy, While these small players of online audio streams plus cd/mp3 etc take around 1-4%CPU, It makes the sound much better, I can surf and listen to music at the same time without any sound loss or breakage, where Gxine it would happen all the time.
Enjoy Smile

Just updated Aqualung with libsamplerate, which allows you change the sample rate quality. Handy if its playing slow. Or that you like higher quality. etc adds around a extra 102kb to the package

If downloaded the first release of Aqualung+Streamtuner and noticed no taskbar icon, there is a patch at the bottom of the page, I've included the missing icon in the updated packages now also.

It was missing a icon, the packages have been updated and the fix for previous downloads is below

Well I did remove the 64x64 icon, lol but what does a 64x64 icon have to do with a taskbar? but thats where the problem is. It already had 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64 and a general icon 6 icons all the same, and 99.9999999% of the time you can remove the 64x64 or 128x128 if it has it, but not this time, lol Download the pet below to fix the issue and I'll update the packages above.

ttuuxxx,there's a newer SVN snapshot of Alsaplayer available on SourceForge (~Apr 2008) Wink

Latest SVN version changelog:
--------------------------------------------------
- 2 bug fixes in the id3 tag support
- fix getting JACK sample rate
- added initial systray / icon function <- interesting Smile
- removed dead code
- fix memleak with path copying
- don't stop if we cannot find plugin->stream_info

Are there any other streamtuner plugins besides Xiph and Shoutcast ?

only a python plugin, never tried it due to the needed python library.
Next time I have 4.2 up and running I'll compile the svn model.
working on dpup right now

I get frequent audio skips when playing net radio streams even when the buffer is 90% full and CPU usage is 0%.

I tried to start Alsaplayer in real-time mode with the -r switch - even that doesn't help Sad

Similar problem with Gxine...but I can't monitor the buffer level with this player,so I don't know if it's due to buffer underruns this time.

ttuuxxx,try this stream (play it for a few hours) and see if you get any of those annoying skips / breaks:

Here's a nice tip for the audiophiles using AlsaPlayer / Puppy:

If you have integrated AC'97 / HDA audio or a Creative soundcard (Live,Audigy,Audigy2 etc.), then run alsaplayer like this:

Code:
alsaplayer --frequency 48000


The difference in the sound quality is like night and day.

What you're doing with this trick is bypassing the shitty resampling algorithm of the Creative / onboard crap and using much better (software) resampling.

The CPU overhead is minimal.

And just for fun,try this one:

Code:
alsaplayer --frequency 8000


for that awesome 'LoFi' sound.
