WOW! Thank you!!

I have been checking every day for a beta update! I can confirm that all known bugs are fixed!

This is a very good update! All global hotkeys work. OpenPandora does not get stuck on loading! :)

Thank you again!

Hokey said...

Hello! Great work, but it doesn't seem to work with my last.fm-account.

To hokey:
Install DebugView from http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/debugview.mspx
Run it.
Run OpenPandora.
Send the output after second song finishes to openpandora@gmail.com

Small "bug":

If you have OP set to stay on top of other windows and you open "Settings" from the tray icon, the settings window pops up behind the tuner window and you can't see it. Not a huge thing, but it bugged me until I discovered what was going on.

Keep up the good work!

no stuck on loading again.

Wonderful use of the IE control :)

By the way, you might want to put an option for people who actually subscribe to pandora so that the flash player doesn't go out of the window.

Also, how bout the miniplayer idea:
-showing the current slide on mouse over
-programmatic play controls

I know... you invited me to the google code piece, but I'd rather not code for this thing any more. It took so long for me to make that VB6 program that I'm all pandora-wrappered out.

yes, indeed, if you are a subscribed pandora user, the new beta shows a very ugly white space and misplaces the flash inside the window...

Brett said...

Yes, how do you fix the ugly white /gray space to the right of the player window?

Daesh said...

I still get the space at the side of the window. I believe you isolated the problem to the fact that I am using 120dpi fonts.

Strangely enough though, the loading screen centres fine but once it finishes loading it is no longer centred.

Thanks for the continued work!

sweef said...

There were 3 problems:
1. Little shift with IE7 - fixed in this beta
2. Shift after finished loading for paying users- fixed for next beta. Will be released in a couple of days.
3. Shift because of using 120 DPI - not fixed yet, but working on it.

Just thought of the ol' "Party Mode" you've been playing with a few versions back:
If the option was dropped at the time because it didn't work, how about checking the app's idle time, and when it hits 1 hour (for instance) just automativcally "love" current track?

sweef said...

I'm still checking different ways to make this.
Nice idea, but problematic, since "loving" songs adds new songs to the radio, and may add some that you don't like.
