    I loved Exaile, but for some reason it's not working for me anymore. Just hangs on "loading database...."

    Back to Rhythmbox then, but it's not a patch on Exaile.

    hm, you could try resetting your db:
    Code:
    mv ~/.exaile/music.db ~/.exaile/music.db-old
    you'll lose ratings and playcounts, but it might make it work again.

    Re: New music player - Exaile!

    Does anyone see a chance of exaile adding support/plugins for DSP/Effects?

    The only things I think it really lacks are:

    • Ability to just "Play" an item from the library instantly from a right click context menu, rather than adding it to the bottom of the playlist and/or queueing it.
      This would also allow people to not have to add their entire collection as a playlist in order to find and play a song immediately.
    • More layout themes, because gtk2.0 themes are great anyway
    • DSP/Effect Plugins. It's not remotely fair to compare Exaile with XMMS, but perhaps there is a way to enable support for XMMS plugins? I don't know, I'm not a programmer.

    I like this idea, file a feature request ('wishlist' bug) on launchpad

    contributions are welcome...

    adding support for xmms plugins would likely be a nightmare. however, any sort of effect supported by gstreamer should be perfectly possible to add. we already support the equalizer and ReplayGain, adding more filters could be done the same way.

    OK, well I just did a tiny bit of research.

    I'm in over my head but...from what I can understand ubuntu 7.10 comes with gstreamer-plugins-good, bad & ugly installed by default.

    Regardless of whether they are or not, wouldn't that mean it should be quite easy to enable them...for example, some of the TAP-Plugins for LADSPA in Exaile through gstreamer.

    I may be speaking absolute garbage here but I found a few gst-*-0.10 commands, and some examples on this website:

    Code:
    gst-launch filesrc location=music.mp3 ! mad ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! osssink
    So then can I assume that every time someone clicks the play button in Exaile that's what's really happening?

    Couldn't it be easy to just add a simple TAP-Plugin to the end of this command to add a specific effect?

    Maybe you can clear this up for me, I'm sure I'm muddled somewhere.

    Oh no problem, I'll file it for you then. I just prefer people to post their own requests since then they get notifications when its updated and it's easier to get more info if needed.

    EDIT: bug filed: https://bugs.launchpad.net/exaile/+bug/162811, you can subscribe youself to it once you get your account working.

    exactly, that's how the EQ and replaygain work, we just add one more component to the line.

    Adding support for ladspa plugins would be excellent! With a good combination of TAP's parametric equalizer/BW, dynamics and tube warmth I have turned my simply good speakers sounding like studio professional ones

    Hah! I can't believe I actually worked that out myself. I'm not a dumbass after all lol

    Okay well that sounds easy, is there any way I can help?

    Yeah, thanks that worked. I did a bit of googling to try and see what was going wrong. It seems the database (pysql ??) was having trouble reading non-unicode characters, and was just stalling. I basically reinstalled that, and exaile (after removing the .exaile directory) and it seems fine now. I have noticed that this time the files it was having trouble reading simply havent been put into my library. Not a problem though - i didnt really like them anyway.
