I just tried installing pMusic 5.0.5 into my remastered Wheezy Puppy.
Rather strange, on first run it is creating a file at /usr/share/applications/deadbeef.desktop containing the code exec pmusic "$@"

This overwrites my deadbeef desktop file and then when fixmenus runs I lose deadbeef from my menu. Why would pMusic write a file with that name at that location?

pMusic does not make a Deadbeef.desktop file. Something is strange about your experience.
The only thing I can think of; is that the pMusic pet includes a /usr/local/bin/defaultaudioplayer. The pinstall script also overwrites the content of ./usr/local/bin/defaultaudioplayer if installing it inside a woof-like environment.

Please update me if you find more details about this.
Thank you

Hello Zigbert,

Thanks for the reply. It certainly is very strange. I thought I must be dreaming or something, but I deleted the .desktop file, deleted /root/.pmusic and tried the first run again and the file was created again.

I am not installing the .pet or running the pinstall script. I am putting the new pMusic /usr/local/pmusic into my remastered main Puppy .sfs file.

I tested without loading my save-file (pfix=ram) and the .desktop file is not created so it must be something that is happening within my save-file. Also it doesn't happen in my remastered Slacko 5.7 so I guess it is not a problem within pMusic. If I find any further information I will let you know.

I am adding some screenshots to show the creation of this strange file.

Is deadbeef normally your default audioplayer?
EDIT : Could you share what application you access via the Alsa input level.desktop file visible in your pic please? cheers

Yes, deadbeef is set as the default audio player in this scenario. It looks as if pMusic (on first-run) is attempting to create /usr/local/bin/defaultaudioplayer to set pMusic as default which I can understand, but then somehow the file is getting renamed as deadbeef.desktop and moved to /usr/share/applications which is all very peculiar because the file does not even have the format of a .desktop file, it is an executable script. Maybe it has something to do with deadbeef being set as default, but I have the same thing in my Slacko 5.7 and this does NOT happen in that so I don't know what to think. Probably it is something silly I am doing which is right under my nose and I can't see it for the moment.

The original alsa-input-level program was on this forum somewhere, written by 01micko or jamesbond or both of them, I can't quite remember. It had a graphical bargraph display, but for some reason I ended up modifying it so it displays as a console with information and a VU bargraph along the bottom to show the audio capture level. Again I forget why I modified it in this way, sorry, I have a bad memory sometimes. Also I added the analogue VU meter icon which I grabbed from somewhere because I thought it looked nice. There is a .pet in my http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks storage, but I am not sure if it is the same as the one I am using now.

Thank you, I ran it in Slim Slacko.

But when I try the "Downloading
Check target path and click the Download button.", nothing happens.
Is it supposed to save an mp3 file to some location?
Please explain 'Check target path'.

Thanks a lot.

When pressing the Download button, pMusic will save the youtube stream to the file set in the entry field beside the button. Atm, there is no feedback when downloading is complete. I have not solved this query... To verify the download, you have to enter the target directory (using rox, pmusic, ...)

It will be a m4a file which is another naming of aac. Strangely, ffmpeg does not support tagging of aac, while m4a is ok - even if they are the same format.

If you have any suggestions how to make this feature more user-friendly, I would like to hear.


Thank you
Sigmund

Does pmusic support the ogg music format?

I using Barry's newest distro quirky pre alpha
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=108132

and ogg files don't play and don't show in list window.

ogg123 is difficult to compile. Thunor's script 'playmusic' needs a player for ogg files.
http://puppylinux.info/topic/playmusic-a-simple-lightweight-gui-for-audio-players

It's not a format that I use.

m4a is a container (same as mp4 but named as m4a to indicate it contains audio). aac is raw MPEG-4 encoded bitstream. I think you need container to support tagging. Whilst m4a usually contains an aac encoded bitstream, as a container, it is capable of holding other encoding types (even mp3) so you can't rely that m4a will be aac inside. If in doubt you should always check contents (e.g. with ffmpeg -i).
