Subject: RE: what do you think about : Playlist = Folder
From: Wolf_Bulk_Mail (wolf_bulkmail_at_comcast.net)

I think that is a good idea but I'd also suggest that folders be treated
slightly differently, as well. What I suggest is that if you "play" a
folder, it should queue up all the songs in that folder (and perhaps
even subfolders) and play them. However, if you click RIGHT on a
folder, it drills you down into its contents.

This way, users (like me) wouldn't be forced to create playlists when
they have a pretty thorough directory structure and simply want to play
at the folder level (by genra, album, etc.). This would still allow
navigation as well as playing. Plus, the key layout is consistent with
the below suggestion for playlists, as well.

Just a thought...

PS: I think there is an outstanding Rockbox feature request for this
but I don't see anything stating it has been worked on at all.

Subject: what do you think about : Playlist = Folder

I think it could be a good idea to open m3u files like folders so we can
see
the files ordered as we wish.

it could use PLAY button to play them like before, use RIGHT button to
open
the playlist like a folder and use the LEFT one to get back to the
folder
where the playlist is.

when OFF is hit while playing and "follow playlist" is set on YES, the
browser should go back to the playlist contents instead of the MP3
folder.

What do you think about that ?
