Subject: RE: Shuffle playlists (sometimes)
From: Matthew P. OReilly (moreilly_at_moreilly.com)
Date: 2003-03-09


I think we should allow a setting in the .cfg to indicate whether or not to
return to the previous .cfg settings once a playlist has been played. This
will necessitate storing the previous settings in memory somehow, but I
think it will save some aggrivation in the long run. An alternative would
be to write the current settings to a .cfg file in the .rockbox directory
whenever a new .cfg file is loaded as part of a playlist/etc.

Use two identical copies of the playlist: list.m3u and list_shuffle.m3u.
Then you have list.cfg and list_shuffle.cfg to handle the shuffle setting.

Let's keep things separated. Loading a .cfg file should never initiate other
actions, such as starting a playlist.
