Bug Description

We should have both a GUI widget that flashes at the end of the track (perhaps the waveform itself could flash) and a Control that indicates we are at the end of track. This could have a preference option for the number of seconds to start warning.

Imho the main waveform should not be used for the end of track warning.

1. A track might be shorter then the default end of track warning time.
Same may use short tracks (e.g. drum samples to trigger with hotcues & midi pads). The EOT-warning may always be active then .
2. A loop overlay/Cue/Hotcue point may be active in the last part of a song making it hard to see if the EOT warning overlay has the the same/similar color.

So either the waveform overview or some of the tracks text display might be a better place for the EOT warning.

What do you guys think?

Most DJ apps use the overview waveform for EOT.

More precisely, the part of the overview waveform that is already played is colored in some different way. When it comes to the last 30 seconds the overview waveform blinks.

Moving to 1.11.0 since it will be part of the new waveform 2.0 efforts.

Waveform-2.0 has an end-of-track indicator. Thanks for the work you did on this Qifan -- sorry it was deprecated :(

In latest r2754 of Waveform-2.0 the end of track warning with the last 30 seconds on the main waveform is NOT active in FIltered and Simple (GL) waveform mode, only in Filtered (GL) and FIltered (GLSL) waveform mode.
Tested with MacOSX 10.6.8
