UKMP 1.3

Another wednesday, another release of UKMP.

Major features in this release are: faster startup and delete song functionality. 1.3 uses a database file that is stored in covers directory. Basically what it contains is the id3 data of mp3 songs on your system. By using this file, ukmp doesn't have to scan all your mp3 files on startup. It'll just check which files you have on your system, then retrieve them from db or from id tags if it doesn't have them on the db. On my music library of around 400 songs, this dropped mmc scanning from 21 secs to around 3 secs. Nice improvement, huh?

Delete song is just that, delete. You enable it by pressing the mode toggle. First switch is party mode, second is delete songs mode. Once you are in delete song mode, just click on a song in the song list and it'll delete it.

This version fixes a few bugs from previous versions, most notably the cover.jpg bug.

Download from here:

as always, you need to have python installed. Install python from here:
Pymaemo

As always, here is a video that demonstrates the new functionality (also shows the light theme).

    Nice! Just tried it and it really runs very smoothly on my 770. Thank you!

    However I noticed some minor bugs, is there a place to report them?

    I'm having trouble running ver. 1.3. For some reason, it just runs saying that it's scanning the memory cards and then quits.

  6. Does the default player support wma files? If it does, then I can add the support. I've also been considering moving to use mplayer, which would basically support pretty much everything under the stars, so might be something for the future. Anyway, email me and we can discuss the wma support more.

  7. Hi there,
    Not sure where to email you, couldn't find your address. Either way, WMA support would be great. Did you mean switching to Media Player, the built in player? It's supposed to support WMA but I had trouble playing last night - it kept skipping through the songs. I can further look into this.

    Thanks for the great programs!

    I can try to add support if you are willing to be the test subject.
