@cherrystraw Exactly. In fact, radio stations that transmit data on the current stream get a search for a cover from online sources by Strawberry and often a cover will be shown. It is often not the correct one (different album or artist, depending on the tag data sent by the streamer), but a cover at least.
If I wanted to make my own compile I could replace the baked in cdcase.png with my own, but I do not want to get involved in that. I assume the developer group scouts this forum and will see the suggestion and hopefully find some value in it.
I've been using Clementine for many years, and I'm happy to see the revival of the project in Strawberry.
In Clementine, the Unix convention of hiding files starting with a dot was respected. It seems like directories starting with a dot are ignored in Strawberry, while music files starting with a dot in open directories are listed along with everything else.
I would like to see at least an option to ignore files starting with a dot, as I have a whole lot of them in my mysic catalog that I have hidden for some reason.
an optimal implimentation would be Shift/meta/alt/ctrl + scroll to increase decrease size on the fly without going into the menu or the typical elektron method of ctrl+ + or ctrl+ - for increase or decrease
I deleted a similar post because I felt it was a stub and could not be edited after a long time.
Spotify will launch with CD-quality HiFi later this year, as it is shown here on their website. Strawberry seems more sound based, however if spotify apk does HiFi it could give more reason to add support for Strawberry.
How did Clementine do that, and why couldn't that support be transferred to Strawberry? Seems like a post alluding to the idea that Spotify had to allow/engage in helping to enable support? If so, perhaps the launch of hiFi could give them a reason to help add support for Strawberry?
Spotify is the best supported music streamer in terms of external apps and phone apps, which makes for a very enjoyable audiophile version. They seem to give developers more access to the api than Qobuz. I'm really confused by any difficulty adding it to Strawberry.
I find Spotify to be a very popular streame today and is used a lot in countries around the world.
Since my last monthly system update of Manjaro this weekend the player and playlist controls respond to touch (Strawberry still 0.9.3). I dont know which other updated package caused that, but it works to my satisfaction.
So this request is "solved".
