Subject: IN FAVOR say i
From: Brian (GCRockboxer13_at_columbus.rr.com)

So, anyone else in favor of this idea?

summary:
current play function becomes queue (and auto-play)
current queue function remains the same
and add a new function play (including other songs in that directory)

Subject: Good or bad idea?

One day i was listening to my Rockbox, on random play all like i always do,
and i heard a song that i absolutely love, but havent heard in a very long
time. And i thought about some songs that just so happen to play more often
than others, etc... This happens because I usually want to listen to a
specific song at one point, and dont want to go through the 5-button combo
(3 to queue, 1 to return to WPS, and 1 to hit next to the next song), i lose
the point of which i was in the 1000-song shuffled playlist. Then, when i
decide to go back to random mode, i play the playlist and it reshuffles.

So, the problem? I want to know what the best way to make sure i listen to
every song at least once before i hear the same song three or four times.
And if we can all agree on one way that this can be changed, maybe this
change can be implemented in CVS.

I say this: Want to play a song, but then return to the playlist at the
same spot? Well, my idea would be to have "play" and "queue" exchanged in
the browser. So if you press play, that song would be queued, and possibly
at the same time rockbox would hit "next," which would do the same thing (on
rockbox as it is now) as queueing the file, then pressing next. If you
still want the option to queue without playing, that could be another option
in the ON + PLAY menu (queue). To play a song (which would in current
rockbox include all other songs in that directory), that option can be put
into the ON + PLAY menu as well (play directory).

Any comments on this would be helpful. I just put this in because I have
lots of accidents where i lose my place in the playlist because i
accidentally hit play on a song to hear it.

If any of this confuses you, just ask... i'm pretty hard to understand
sometimes.

Brian
