2.0.5 - Stable
Big 2.0 update with lots of new features and bugfixes:
- #8: Initial support for automatic audio synchronization. Check out the readme and vidify/audiosync for more!
- #10: Support for local Spotify info on Windows and macOS without having to use the web API, thanks to SwSpotify. Any MPRIS compatible player is supported on Linux now (apart from Spotify). Also, now it's very easy to implement new APIs for other players. So if you want support for a player that doesn't work, open an issue and let me know!
- #11, #16: Support for mpv has been added. It can be enabled from the config file or passing --use-mpv as an argument. It's really easy to add support for other players too.
- #12: A config file has been implemented. Read more about how it works inside the README.md.
- #9: Now using a newer Spotipy fork made by Felix Hildén. This brings more features and improves the web API behaviour. For example, instead of creating an annoying
.cache-usernamefile with API information wherever vidify was launched, it's saved inside the config file.
- #15: Renamed from
vidify. The previous name was confusing because it was called
Spotify Music Videosat the same time, and it sounded quite boring and generic. I think Vidify sounds more interesting and can be more consistent. Also, this app is intended to work for more players now, so I didn't want to limit the name to Spotify.
- #19: A Qt interface has been implemented to contain the players and have more control over the application. This also fixes how the width and height options work. And it's now possible to authenticate the Web API directly inside the app, and select your favorite API.
- #26: New logo! Now that Qt is used, the app needs a logo as its icon. Thanks to xypnox for coming up with it.
- Many other improvements and fixes. But also new bugs! Please report them if you encounter any.
