Gmu 0.7.0_BETA7 released

2009-12-31 05:23
Here is another Gmu release for the GP2X (Open2X), the GP2X Wiz and the Dingoo A320 (Dingux). It is the last Gmu release for this year. ;) It comes with some new features and bugfixes.

The new features include:
  • A shutdown timer: Gmu can be configured such that it shuts itself down after a number of minutes or after the last track has been played. Gmu can also execute a command to shut down the entire device, so you can use this feature as a "sleep timer". This obviously won't work on the GP2X-F100/F200 because of the device's mechanical power switch.
  • A log bot: Gmu is now able to keep track of the played tracks by writing them to a text file. This can be used for various purposes. It might be useful for feeding those data into the system for example.
  • Faster seeking: When seeking through a song Gmu now increases the seeking speed
  • An increased number of playlist slots: Gmu can now handle up to 32 playlists (instead of 8).

Besides those new features there are some bugfixes, e.g. the auto-play feature has been fixed. That was previously broken in the 0.7.0 series of Gmu.

Gmu for the GP2X and the GP2X Wiz: (850 kB)
Gmu for the Dingoo A320: (780 kB)
Please have a look at the README.txt file that comes with Gmu. There are lots of useful information and configuration hints.

I substituted an ipod for a dingoo and then moved to dingux basically because of GMU, which is completely brilliant!!
A defect of the dingoo’s native music player is that it inserts a very annoying silence between tracks, which completely ruins long pieces divided in individual tracks, or very short pieces. I think this also happens (to a lesser extent) with GMU. Is it possible to eliminate the gaps between tracks??

hug: Thanks for your comment. I’m considering to get rid of those gaps between tracks, or even implement true gapless playback. It probably takes a while until it will be ready, though.
