Subject: Nested Playlist patch
From: CombThins (bmnews_at_blueyonder.co.uk)
Date: 2004-01-31


It's been a while since I've had much time to spend here. I just caught up
with about the last six months work, and it looks like lots of good stuff's
been happening, so thanks to everyone.

I've just submitted a patch which allows playlists to be nested (.m3u line
in a playlist will load that playlist down to a maximum depth of 8). If
anyone tries it out please let me have your comments. It generally work
with dynamic playlists, bookmarks, and the playlist viewer, but as I am not
a big user of those features it would be good to have others try it out.

I am aware of a couple of issues which I will look into, and update the
patch:

 - Dynamically inserting a playlist which contains .m3u lines does not go
through the nesting loader, so the nested playlists within the added
playlist are not loaded.

 - There seems to be a problem with loading large playlists into the
playlist viewer - it seems to get out of step with the playlist file
contents. I've only seen problems when the playlist is big, requiring the
playlist viewer to load another section from disk.
