Subject: Another cool feature for playlists
From: Jack Peel (jhp_at_cypress.com)
Date: 2002-10-16


I have a feature request for when you start working on
the editable playlists. It would be nice to have the ability
to "knock out" a play list. What I mean is that you have a
big play list, and you want to dynamically remove some
of the files from it.

Why someone would want to do this may not seem
obvious, but I think my example will illustrate it's usefulness.

I do sound at a local club, and we get cover bands all the
time. The band usually gets pretty annoyed if you play
a song during the breaks that they do in their set.
Not quite sure why ;). So it would be nice to have
a master 80's dance list, and be able to create a
"knock out" list for each of the bands, that way
If I add a new song I don't need to add it to all the lists.

This would of course not affect the actual play list
on disk, just the play list that is being run currently.
(I'm not sure if the rockbox reads it's play list from the
file as it goes, or if it loads it into memory somehow).

Thanks and Keep up the good work!

Jack
