Subject: Custom directory settings
From: Chris Pimlott (rockbox_at_chris.pimlott.net)
Date: 2002-09-06


        This whole 'directory settings' idea is good, here's how I see
it happening:

        * Settings are stored in a .ini (or something) file
                EQ
                volume (proportional)
                shuffle
                others?
        * Settings can be applied via the file view
        * A settings file named "dir.ini" (or something) is
          automatically applied for all songs in the directory
        * Settings files can also contain specifications for individual
          mp3s (perhaps even globbing)
        * When playing a playlist, apply each song's settings
                apply those like vol, eq
                ignore those like shuffle
        * The master settings file is stored in /.rockbox

        The format might be something like
[all]
vol=0.5 #average volume
treble=1
bass=0.1

[big bass.mp3]
bass=0.9

[too loud.mp3]
vol=0.1 # who is the moron who encoded this??

        In fact, you could store all possible settings in this (it's
not inconceivable someone would want a different wps for an audiobook or
to show non-mp3s only in their movies directory).
