Subject: Re: what do you think about : Playlist = Folder

Hi,

I think that all this could be included in that hypothetical "open with..."
function Daniel talked about in
http://rockbox.haxx.se/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2004-01/0169.shtml

This way, users can choose between playing a playlist, viewing it... or
whatever he may want.

I personally prefer using the playlist viewer.

Just my opinion :)

Jose
