Crossfade plugin doesn't work on manual song change
|Status:||Closed||Start date:||November 16, 2012|
Crossfade works OK on automatic song change but on manual song change it skips crossfading as if crossfade plugin is off.

- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
This is intended behavior. Converting to a feature request.

This is intended behavior.
Oh, that's weird, I was sure it was a bug. What about a second parameter for manual song change then (with 0 means no crossfading)?

The problem is that right now a manual song change causes a full reset of the output stream, and there's currently no way for the crossfade plugin to prevent it. So while I agree that this would be a nice feature to have, it'll take some thought about how best to implement it.

Please, make it an option if you're going to implement it.
If I manually jump between tracks I don't want any fade-in/fade-out.

Artem, yes, I was talking about an option, just like in many other players: separate numbers for automatic and manual song change.
John, OK, I hope you'll find a solution.

as i organise my newyear party i'll use my linux box with audacious and i am big fan of crossfade plugin.
I'll check for this feature because it's a must have when you manage different playlists, changing manually from a playlist to another kill the crossfade same as changing song manually.
Activate this option with checkbox would be great for parties !
Thanks for your attention on this one.
PS : 10 seconds crossfade max is just enough but more (20) would be great .. need another whishlist ?

- Status changed from New to Closed
- Target version set to 3.6
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
I've implemented the following changes for 3.6:
- Added an option to crossfade on seek or manual song change, with a separate overlap setting.
- Increased the maximum overlap for automatic song change to 15 seconds.
- Added a new silence removal plugin which is useful for crossfading, but can also be used on its own.
