bill, i have a bit of an unrelated question

and maybe it has been answered in the past

from rp's vantage point:

is there a preferred method of tuning in?

is it better/cost effective, better technically to listen from shoutcast(or other service) or directly from rp?

i use shoutcast (and from my mobile xiia live) quite a bit

why? convenience of multiple stations at my fingertips

please advise

btw, thanks for all of your time and talent

 
No difference. & thanks :-)

Yes, I'm aware of that one.  It really does accept the rating, but there's a data object that isn't getting updated properly. Should be fixed soon.

I find the Show Song and Artist Info a bit jarring. First, when you hover over the  artist name/title, it wasn't intuitive to me that it was clickable and the pop-up explanation looked like it needed to be clicked - maybe tie that to the cursor position and turn the title text blue rather than yellow. But maybe it's just me.

On my computer Chrome W-10, the song info box that pops up is cut off at the top and the lower left corner is rounded but the lower right is square which looks strange. Maybe it would be nice if the box could be re-positioned. I think it would look better if you made it's background semi-transparent so the slideshow peeks through.

Without the slideshow on, I would shrink the RP logo and move the album art up so it doesn't overlap the song info (at least it does the way it starts up on my computer).

 
Sounds like there might be some Windows-specific layout problems (album art should never overlap the song title, corners should all be rounded, etc.). I'll look into that as soon as I can.

Lemmee try a rewrite:

 Double-clicking anywhere in the open slideshow area ie not over a menu button, etc, causes the RP logo to be selected (ie select , ready for copy, paste).  Proper response to a double-click in this area might be ... nothing ?

Browser = Chrome on Win 8.x 

 
Gotcha.  I wasn't looking on the slideshow view.  I agree. Nothing is the proper action.

Double-clicking on Listener supported etc, in between tunes does nothing, though selects the logo again.  Perhaps on mouse-over, a pop-up saying "RP is listener supported, click for more info and/or to send us support" or whatever verbiage makes sense / is simple. 

 
I'm not sure I'm following you on that first one.

Yes, we will be linking to the support page during breaks. That's not in place yet.

I just built an El Capitan hackintosh and tried out the shiny new RP3 beta player on Safari. Seems to work well without any issues. Very cool!

..........
Speaking of adding things to the PSD list...
 
Different to me means something that either a) hasn't been played in a long time, like a year or more... or b) something that's never played.
 
Can you add a button for that category?

A volume knob/slider would be nice. The interface is super clean, wouldn't want to busy it up, but the tiny little song rating tool would be welcome too.

This is worlds better than the old player—when I click play I get a lag of 5 minutes or more with the old one.

 
I'll probably be adding a volume control.  As noted already, just click the heart next to the song title to rate.

Yeah, I'm going to work on window scaling. You'll be able to resize them to whatever you want & keep the settings.  That'll probably happen toward the end of May (it's a busy month!).

The 'basic' player should open w/ no slideshow.  The third button from the right on the bottom toggles between slideshow/no slideshow.

There will also be a 'minimal' mode — just the song title + buttons — but probably not for 3 weeks or so.

Just noticed some bugs — kinda major ones — in IE & Edge.  They mostly relate to window size, so they may be related to the VM I'm using to run Win10.  I'll check it on an actual Windows machine the next chance I get.

However, I'm probably not going to focus on any IE/Edge-only issues at this point. If you can't hang with the window size issues, just use Firefox or Chrome.
