Hello everyone,



CloudMuzik.


EDIT: 6/21/2013

Hard to believe it's been over a year since I've put this app out into the marketplace. NOW... I present to you.. v1.5! Those of you still using the app should have received an update, if not.. Go to the marketplace and grab it!

EDIT: 6/3/2012

CloudMuzik v1.2 is in the Marketplace. As of today it will still be propogating, but by the next day it should fully be out so look for the update notification.



EDIT: 4/13/2012

After running into some issues with pushing the update, it's finally here! For those who have the crashing first version, go to the Marketplace and update manually if you haven't received the update Notification

EDIT: 3/17/12

FINALLY we're in the Marketplace. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to testing this application. It's come a long way since the initial beta.

EDIT: 12/21/11

The slots are now closed so that I can focus on fixing things and preparation. Thanks for testing!


EDIT: 12/13/11

More private slots have opened up. Feel free to PM!


EDIT: 12/5/11

Fixed the glitch I found which means the new beta build is coming VERY soon! Sorry it's taking a while.. I had to restructure my whole data structure to truly support 15000+ song libraries. Caching the library is a pain, but is needed. More updates coming soon.

I want to thank everyone who has supported this project again. I will do my best not to let you guys down!

CloudMuzik is a Google Music player made to work specifically for WP7 phones. I got tired of trying to listen to Google Music through the browser since the interface is ugly and it doesn't know how to switch to different tracks while locked.


I want to give a big thanks to Marvin_S and sensboston

If it wasn't for them, I would be adding unnecessary complexity :).


Thanks,



Marvin_S and Snickler

Hello everyone,

Coming 10/28/11 is the beta of CloudMuzik.

CloudMuzik is a Google Music player made to work specifically for WP7 phones. I got tired of trying to listen to Google Music through the browser since the interface is ugly and it doesn't know how to switch to different tracks while locked.

Features for CloudMuzik Beta

  • Max 1000 songs
  • Search for individual song, artist or album
  • Album Art accompanied with song if it exists
  • Seeking through songs
  • Shuffling (Everyday I'm shuffling xD)
  • Background Music aware

There also MAY be future functionality to stream music from other sources, but that can't be guaranteed.

With this said, my good friend Marvin_S will be handling the music playing interface in the end. The first beta interface will not be the final one.

I want to give a big thanks to Marvin_S and sensboston

NOTE:

I will edit this post to indicate when the beta is ready. It will be on a per request basis as we will need time to work out issues that may arise and prepare for the Marketplace.

Thanks,

Marvin_S and Snickler

Sigh.. Well everyone I'll have to push the release back a few days due to being very busy at work. Good news is that I have the basic functionality in regards to retrieving the music and playing it. I have to make the functionality for searching and browsing and the beta will be ready. Please be patient. I will post a few screenshots tomorrow to show progress. =)

Another update:

It's looking pretty good in terms of functionality. There WILL be a weird bug in terms of background images per song (Yes, I made it look like the Zune music player that displays an artist in the background as the song is playing). Other than that, I'm working on cleaning up a few things and adding some searching functionality. It will be out tonight!

As I've listed in the initial post. This will be on a per request basis (private beta).

More to come tonight!

EDIT:

Sigh.. after a fun Halloween party last night, I wasn't too keen on working hehe. It will be delayed a day, BUT BUT BUTTTTTT I have something good. A few screenshots of the music player to hold you over.

Hi. This player can be used like offline music player ? and it has an equalizer ?
This just streams from Google Music (hence the name CloudMuzik :p). It has no equalizer.

ALSO! GOOD NEWS I fixed the issue I was having so the release will be coming either tonight or tomorrow morning after I tidy up a few things.

Why is it so difficult to implement equalizer settings in any music app in windows? I mean why we don't have equalizers in any app in whole of the marketplace? Does windows phone not have apis for this?

The same frustration I thought once I saw there was no equalizer built into the zune player. Although there's that nice equalizer for the HTC phones.. everything has to be built from scratch. I don't know for sure if it's even possible to make an equalizer without using the phone's native drivers. I'm assuming it could be possible using MediaStreamSource, but then again that requires an intense understanding on how to modify the sound to that extent. :-\.

well this would involve decomposing the mp3 file, altering the appropriate bytes and than send them sample by sample back into media stream source or something a like. And is possible (technically) with wav files with DSP API, where you can pump in raw wav audio buffers, but with mp3 i think this conversion would be to cpu intensive/slow that its not possible and more importantly not worth the time to implement. You would basically have to code an mp3 codec in c# (correct me if im wrong, but I belive this would be the only way).
