Yes I'm talking about that one. It pops up halfway off-screen when I click the volume button. My phone's screen is 768 px wide. :)
Are you sure you are not confusing vertical and horizontal resolutions?
768px is a plenty of space.
338px and wider should look okay with small font size.
Narrower screens cause buttons row to wrap.
I can adjust markup to align buttons in two rows for such screens, but I doubt such old phones would support modern browsers anyway :)
Definitely 768px (it's a Nexus 4), I'll post a screenshot as soon as it's charged and I can get it to boot again.

General Audio / Is it all bull**** now?
Last post by bdunham7 -
I haven't visited a "hi-fi" shop in a long time, so I'd like to know if my experience was the new norm.  I wanted to see and hear a rather unusual and uncommon loudspeaker.  There is a dealer about an hour away that was having an open house and demo that included these, so we made a day of it and went to see them.

First, the dealer didn't have the second-from-the-top model that I really wanted to see, so we listened to the third-down model.  It was  interesting, but it turned out the "demo" wasn't really the speakers.  The dealer wanted to demo the power conditioning system, including the mechanical grounding discs to prop everything else.  I wanted to ask some technical information about the speakers, especially how they managed distortion in their rather radical omnidirectional driver system.  He informed me that there was no distortion--because of the $32,000 insulation-biased cable system.  That and the power conditioner, of course.   

So is this how it's going to be?  I'm not that likely to buy the speakers anyway--they're quite expensive--but I could.  But there's no chance at all if I can't have a rational discussion with the supposed experts.  I don't expect them to be unbiased and I can deal with normal salesmanship and opinions, but this seems like if you want anything to do with high-end, you have to join the cult and drink the kool-aid.

Also I just noticed that the slider in the web interface is way more sensitive than the one on foobar's UI. When the web slider is at 50% the UI slider is at 20% or so. Probably a different scale is used.
SDK provides range from -100 to 0 dB, web UI currently just represents this, probably standard UI uses logarithmical scale on top of it. I'll investigate this.

Another suggestion: since single tap selects a track, show relevant contextual actions in the hamburger menu (such as send track to playlist, add to playback queue etc...)
Probably yes, I want to make proper playlist manipulation first, selection and especially multi-selection is somewhat non-existent in web interfaces and this has to be implemented manually.

The volume slider isn't entirely visible on my phone: it goes off-screen to the right.
It should be collapsible to a single button that reveals volume control on narrow screens.

The total play time at the bottom always shows 00:00:00.

Oops, I was really missing libopusenc library. You're right it's more annoying to build as I see there even references to speex and speexdsp libs. Are so exhaustive linkage necessary? I think speex is now getting deprecated.
There's no dependency on Speex in any of these libraries. We've *copied* the Speex resampler specifically to avoid having to link with it.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. I really appreciate that.

The volume slider isn't entirely visible on my phone: it goes off-screen to the right.
It should be collapsible to a single button that reveals volume control on narrow screens.
For very small resolution screens even that is not enought, I'll have to switch to small font size in settings.
What is horizontal resolution of your phone? I'll check this. Maybe there is some issue with horizontal size breakpoints.

The playback order menu is called the "audio menu", it's confusing.
Sure, would rename.

Could there be a list of playlists in a menu? The horizontal tab list is often too narrow and scrolling through it is not optimal.
Such issue exist on my list. I will implement this eventually.

In "touch mode" I still have to double tap a track to play it.
Double tap is intentional to prevent accidental playlist item activation when scrolling large playlists.
I think single-tap activation is possible as option.

Maybe this has another purpose?
Currently it affects how playlist tabs work: in mouse mode they are draggable from any point, in touch mode there is a dedicated drag handle to prevent accidental dragging when scrolling.

This is exactly what I needed! Thanks for developing this!
