Audacious on Windows

Added by Kajetan Krykwiński over 4 years ago

Hi,
I've been using Audacious on Linux for years, anyway Windows is my main platform.
Audacious is working great, has very small footprint (it's not even comparable with Winamp ;) ), anyway I have few remarks / suggestions.

- Package with 3.3.4/Windows has 3.3.3 inside ;)
- There's no translations packaged.
- There should be .exe installer. Most of WinUsers i know are too lazy to unpack, move files, etc. And installer can associate audio files with audacious
- (wish) native Windows look of GUI. Removing font line from ./etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini does part of trick (anti-aliased system font), but this seems to be GTK3 issue (still no native theme?).
- (pain-in-the-...) missing Global Hotkeys plugin. This is probably the biggest issue as for now. The OSD one should be useful too.

Anyway, thanks for your awesome work!

Yes, lack of the global hotkeys plugin is the only reason why I'm still using Foobar2000 on my Windows machines.

It was actually 3.3.4 but the version number had not been updated. Please see http://audacious-media-player.org/download for an updated build.

Regarding the Global Hotkeys, the following AutoHotkey works fine under Windows 10 and Audacious 3.8.2 :

#IfWinExist, ahk_exe audacious.exe

; Previous Song
SC110::
Media_Prev::
    ControlSend, ahk_parent, z, ahk_class gdkWindowToplevel
return

; Play/Pause
Media_Play_Pause::
SC122::
    ControlSend, ahk_parent, c, ahk_class gdkWindowToplevel
return

; Next Song

SC119::
    ControlSend, ahk_parent, b, ahk_class gdkWindowToplevel
return

#IfWinExist
