Automatic import cover-art from

Lastfm configuration (don't connect with other programs/plugins to lastfm in the same time)

Web radio, equalizer, minilyric, some winamp plugins

What does not

Window issues; you cannot minimize or maximize the window, it doesn't respond & the program does not appear on the task-list.
­Browsing covers is a bit slow (it needs a working DIB engine)

Albumplayer does not resume playing after a pause in Ubuntu Lucid with the default pulse-audio setup (see the note for workarounds)

CD playing works only when cd is inserted before starting program, it doesn't auto-remove.

Momentum scrolling makes it difficult to add an album to the playlist (this might also be an issue on the windows version) You can disable this feature in the preferences.

HowTo / Notes

How-to for AP5.0, 5,1, 5.2
Install the following way in a terminal, use the wineprefix command for installation in a clean environment
You need to have (the latest) winetricks installed

cd ~/ && wget && chmod +x winetricks

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x sh winetricks corefonts mdac28 jet40 msxml4 directx9 ie6 wininet dotnet20
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine '/path/to/albumplayer_setup5x.exe' (install AlbumPlayer V5.x)

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine regedit

Go to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command"
Edit and change it to C:\windows\system32\winebrowser.exe -nohome "%1"
(Set native firefox as the default browser)

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine "C:\Program Files\AlbumPlayer\AlbumPlayer.exe"
How-to for AP5.3
Install the following way in a terminal, use the wineprefix command for installation in a clean environment
You need to have (the latest) winetricks installed

cd ~/ && wget && chmod +x winetricks

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-AP53x sh winetricks corefonts mdac28 jet40 msxml6 dotnet20

(AP craches with directx9 on wine 1.4 & 1.6, so don't install)
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-AP53x wine '/path/to/albumplayer_setup53x.exe' (install AlbumPlayer)

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-AP53x wine "C:\Program Files\AlbumPlayer\AlbumPlayer.exe"



For 64-bit systems set wine to 32-bit first, for msxml6 & dotnet20 to install succesfully

env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-AP53x WINEARCH=win32 winecfg


Pulse Audio issue (ubuntu 10.04)
With the default pulse-audio setup in Ubuntu Lucid 10.04, Albumplayer can not resume playing after a pause..  

To use ALSA-only in Ubuntu 10.04 you either need to remove pulseaudio or stop it from auto-spawning. 
To disable auto-spawn, edit or create the file ~/.pulse/client.conf and add a line containing "autospawn = no" there.

I ended up completely removing pulse.
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-alsa gnome-alsamixer
sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio

*Note, this will also remove the volume-applet*
(screenlets or avant window navigator can replace the volume-applet)

Another alternative which you can try is Wine with pulse-audio enabled

Best alternative I came across is from the bordeaux group
With this wine version you get a working dib version (for native speed) and pulse audio support in one!

Setup is like this:

The DIB engine wil only run in the root of .wine
So to install this get your copy of Bordeaux here: ,
then install AlbumPlayer in the root of wine (.wine)

If you look at the how-to instructions above
then the only thing you need to change is to leave this part of the command: 'env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x'
So you get: 

[code:]sh winetricks allfonts mdac28 jet40 msxml4 directx9 ie6 wininet dotnet20[/code] (you must use allfonts here too)
[code]wine '/path/to/albumplayer_setup5x.exe'[/code] (install AlbumPlayer V5.x)
etc/etc (assuming winetricks & wine1.2 is installed)

Then you still have to change audio to pulse, do this with
[code]/opt/bordeaux/bin/wine winecfg[/code] audio settings

Once your installation is finished you start Albumplayer like this in the terminal:
[code]export WINEDIB=ON[/code]
[code]/opt/bordeaux/bin/wine "C:\Program Files\AlbumPlayer\AlbumPlayer.exe"[/code]
