Subject: RE: Bug with shuffle/insert playlist!
From: Tim Elliott (telliott_at_sigecom.net)
Someone had written a patch a while ago to queue with the play button. I
stopped using it because it made playing playlists a pain since there was no
option just to play it. It was always "inserted", which could take a while
for long playlists.

Subject: Re: Bug with shuffle/insert playlist!
This remembers me what i told myself when recently using my archos in a
party... what a hell !
I explained the play/playlist functioning of rockboxx to another guy, so he
could enqueue tracks too (and
then i could dance more :o) )... This was quite hard to explain. He finally
understood my explanations,
but quickly did the manipulation mistakes i had guessed : clicking "play"
instead of "on-play" on a
track, thus deleting the current playlist, etc.
So this would be great to have a good way to use rockboxx for parties. Maybe
you already spoke about it,
i searched but did not found. I've not had time to really think of it, too,
would it be a special mode
with easy access to restricted functionality (e.g simple unique keypress to
enqueue a track to the
playlist while browsing), or the current menu settings a little revisited.
It would be cool at least to
have it in mind for discussions about UI. My 2 cents.
