v0.658 released -- List View Image and Drag&Drop!

The problems with the v0.656 early beta appear to be fixed.

In addition, ListView will now also show JPG files marked hidden (this will eventually be selectable). Also, a rare problem under VISTA fixed (error 70, permission denied).  Finally, now the "Update Tables" entry is shown in Start/Programs/MP3Boss.

Links to the downloads can be found at:

Let me know if you find any problems!  Thanks!

Re: v0.658 released -- List View Image and Drag&Drop!

Harald,

Are you running v0.658 or v0.656?  v0.656 had a problem on most systems...and would never show the picture.

I think I've fixed that with v0.658 -- but the images are currently limited to the *.JPG files that reside in the same directory as the song file.  If you don't have any *.JPG files in the directory, you won't see the picture (but you should always see the 'small icon/text' view of the selected file --and that small icon view can be dragged.  Also, you should have the normal Explorer right-click menu.

Have you verified that the drag&drop works with Virtual DJ?

I'm sure that in addition to *.JPG, I should be looking for *.BMP, *.GIF, *.PDF, *.TIF, *.ICO and maybe *.TXT, *.EXE, *.IFO (video).  But perhaps I should also extract & show tag embedded images?

Ah,
so if a embedded image is shown in Winamp, it is not for sure it will be shown in mp3-boss?

Drag & Drop with virtual dj works very good!smile

Re: v0.658 released -- List View Image and Drag&Drop!

Correct -- all I am showing are JPG files that are in the same directory as the song file.  Apparently, that is what WMP does ... and it sounds like a pretty good idea.  I can easily read the embedded images as well, and create a temporary "Embedded1.JPG", "Embedded2.JPG" ... etc. file that could show up in the list.

Probably a good idea, right?

The only issue is that it will take somewhat longer to process those files with embedded images.  I'm already limiting the update rate to a bit less than 10 records per second.  I don't know if I'd have to slow that down at all to process embedded images.

Great to hear that Drag&Drop is working!
