Play all.

Postby Xroads » Mon Mar 31, 2008 1:36 pm

It would be verry nice, if there was the possibility, with one keystroke, to play all songs in ones collection. Meening that you dont have to manually select each cd, if you would like to just play your entire collection in random.

This is actually a suggestion from my girlfriend :lol:

Thanks for an exelent program.

That is possible right now!
Take a look at:
# Add playnow functionality
#
# Enabling this option adds a new key (audio_add,playnow) that in
# audio add can be used to quickly listen to a whole folder of tracks.
# This is very useful if one often listens to whole albums.
#
# Please note that using this command will DESTROY your current
# playlist, so don't enable this unless you are fully aware of this :)
#
audio_mode_playnow = true
in AudioConfig ...

Say you have your music in /media/music, setting audio_dir to /media enables you to use play_now on music/ :P

As far as I know, this application (MMS) is the application with the highest women acceptance factor of all media centers ;-)

Offcourse thats a way to do it. But it meens that i would have to move all files to a directory under the one where they are now. And when you then go into "play music", there would only be the one folder there. Then if you didn't wanted to "play all", you would have to go into that folder. I think that would decrease the WAF.

What I have is the following, which (imho) is very practicable:

Top-genres (Mp3, Hard, Dub, Blues, German, ...)
below that I have !!A - F/, !!G - L, etc. ... (see the "!" ... with that, the folder is always first ;)
below these I have Artist, Album, ...

So if I'm bluesy, I do play_now on Blues ... if I want some Dub, too, I'll do audio_add on Dub ... that's very handy!! (play_now & audio_add are configured for lirc)

Together with beeing able to clear the playlist without making the music stop, I'm able to navigate quite fast, changes albums without skip and add a whole lotta music with just a few clicks ... play_now, add, add, add ...
