Subject: RE: Hardeep's dynamic playlist questions/suggestions
From: Tim Elliott (telliott_at_sigecom.net)
Date: 2003-06-23


Thanks for your quick response. I was under the impression that if I
turned off the unit before saving the dynamic playlist I just created,
it would be lost. Where is it caved? Can I rename it to avoid having
it overwritten (Like the queue file)?

I was mainly wanting the quick save/reload feature so I could mix tracks
I just added with tracks I'm listening to now, without waiting for the
current playlist to play (Append) or switching to only the added songs
(Insert). I wouldn't do this all the time, just after I've searched the
drive for a particular set of folders/files to combine into a unique
playlist.

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Tim,

You _can_ shuffle while playing. Give it a try. :)

> currently playing?

Tracks are shuffled if you insert a folder while nothing is playing and
shuffle mode is enabled.

All information about the dynamic playlist is saved to disk. After
resume,
the dynamic playlist will be exactly the same.

If any of these features are not working, it's a bug in the dynamic
playlist
code and needs to be fixed.
