Dolphin Viewer 2

The DolphinViewer2 has been updated to version

New in this release:

  • The Dolphin Viewer 2 now shows song titles and artists in local chat (visible only when you are logged in), if the stream contains such data. The information viewable whenever a stream changes.
    Linux users only: To make this work on linux you have to edit the secondlife wrapper script. Remove the # in front of the line that reads “export LL_BAD_OPENAL_DRIVER=x” to switch to fmod, without which this feature does not work. This change is going to be incorporated in a future release of the Dolphin Viewer 2 as soon as I can be sure that using fmod instead of openAL doesn’t have any negative impact.
  • Domains in the media filter black- and whitelists are now treated as substrings when matching media urls.
    What does that mean?  When you encounter lots of addresses from the same hoster (e.g. addresses like and, you can now manually add a whitelist entry “”, which then would allow all addresses that contain “” to play.  This needs to be done with careful consideration, and do not leave out leading dots, or you could have a whitelist entry “”, which could also match a site like
  • The minimap range rings have been changed to white for improved visibility, and now there are two rings, one at chat range and one at shout range. To switch them on, right-click the Minimap and enable “Chat Ring”.
  • On linux, the viewer startup script creates a folder /tmp/$(whoami)/slcache. This is for use as the sl cache folder in case your linux installation uses tmpfs on /tmp. If you want to use it you have to manually change your cache location to that folder.

The downloads are on the download page as usual.
