00:44:09n17ikhHey, I'm getting a 403 forbidden on , , and
00:44:19n17ikhas linked on
00:44:40Hillshumfroggyman: Is this screen from the OF or RB?
00:44:57Hillshumn17ikh: Those aren't for you :P

00:45:13n17ikhthey used to be.
00:45:13Zagorn17ikh: we've just moved the site. I'll fix them.
00:46:07froggymanHillshum: its the "patented 'Please wait Very low battery'" screen, which is hard coded (i think) into the iPod, in a similar way to diagnostics and diskmode
00:46:30HillshumHmm. What charger?
00:47:23froggymanThe USB port through my computer ( I know it is getting some form of power, as if I un plug it, it goes blank)
00:48:03HillshumHmm. Is it a port on the back, without a hub in the way?
00:48:35froggymanin the front, to hub, directly connected to the computer
00:48:50froggymanno hud
00:48:58Hillshumwhat about a hub?
00:49:04froggymannot that either
00:49:10HillshumBack ports seem to be better
00:49:26*froggyman gives it a shot
00:50:09*stripwax couldn't see the original message from froggyman, what are we talking about exactly?
00:50:33froggymanits a please wait very low battery message
00:50:47scorche|shso plug it in and wait a while?
00:50:49stripwaxdoes it just need charging?
00:51:15froggymanscorche|sh: how long, its been ~3 hours?
00:51:30stripwaxthere's also that ipod rockbox low battery problem of course
00:51:32scorche|shfroggyman: typically 16-24 hours is recommended

00:51:41stripwaxtried holding down menu+Select?
00:51:49froggymanohh, ok I'll let it sit over night
00:52:08Hillshum_Charging shouldn't take that long should it?
00:53:19scorche|shit depends
00:53:48*froggyman had it charging in rockbox all day, but then came home to find out the battery was dead
00:54:15*froggyman leaves
00:56:20saratogai think if you over discharge a lipoly battery they slowly recharge them in order to avoid damage, so thats probably the mode triggered on the ipod
00:56:35saratogaalso, new front page:
00:56:41saratogalast chance to complain before I hit commit
00:57:17stripwaxsaratoga - ugh, what's that?
00:58:22saratogastripwax: seen the mailing list discussion?
00:59:19stripwaxfroggyman - it might be that you only thought it was charging, and it was actually still discharging, is that possible? e.g. backlight or disk usage while connected via usb to your pc?
00:59:58stripwaxsaratoga - I've got email problems at the moment, so no unfortunately
01:00:11stripwaxbut a webpage that says #if 1 #define _LOGO_ ??
01:00:31saratogastripwax: thats how the source for the page looks when viewed without the other scripts
01:00:46saratogathe only thing actually changed is the text
01:00:51stripwaxoh, ok. sorry!
01:01:13saratogahere have a diff
01:01:14linuxstbsaratoga: Can't you post a diff then?

01:03:38Hillshum_stripwax: How much data does that amount to?
01:04:38stripwaxHillshum_ - the spam? no idea, too much
01:04:53linuxstbsaratoga: I would change the phrase "serious problems that limit it to advanced users" to something like "serious problems that limit its usefulness"
01:05:21 Quit ender` (" The Web is a procrastination apparatus: It can absorb as much time as is required to ensure that you won't get any real wor")
01:06:41stripwaxsaratoga - so last mail I have on mailing list was the "3.4 Feature Freeze" from the 14th
01:07:22saratogalinuxstb: the idea about unstable ports is that they've nearly as useful as stable ports but have missing features such manual, installers, recording, etc
01:07:25Hillshum_stripwax: I was before that
01:07:30saratogaand may be buggy
01:07:45saratogai'm not sure I'd say they're less useful
01:07:45Hillshum_and may have uSD issues
01:07:50saratogayes that too
01:08:06saratogaalthough the e200v1 was supported for 2 years with at least as serious uSD issues

01:10:28stripwaxHillshum - oh the "Supported vs. Unsupported Builds" discussion, right.
01:10:48saratogaperhaps "Rockbox runs on these players, but is incomplete, missing features, or has serious problems that limit it to advanced users"
01:10:53linuxstbsaratoga: I just imagine that a lot of the bugs in "unstable" targets will be just as annoying to "advanced users" as other users.
01:11:10Zagorn17ikh: fixed
01:11:30Hillshummore advanced users might be better prepared for lots of reformats
01:11:43Zagorumm, except the 4weeks is a bit short...
01:11:46saratogaif you have to reformat its probably not going to be considered unstable
01:12:09*Hillshum hasn't done much with his e200v2 lately...
01:12:23***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
01:13:18Zagorthat's better
01:13:40saratogalinuxstb: do you have another phrasing? i just don't want to imply that a target necessarily is less useful
01:14:11Hillshum"Provide slight annoyances"?
01:14:20saratogathe e200v2 for instance mainly suffers from a uSD compatibility issues and lack of recording (which is mostly useless anyway since there is no line in)
01:14:26saratogaand lack of USB I suppose
01:14:55saratogai don't think its less useful, although the install process is complicated enough that many users might have trouble with it

01:21:07mc2739Zagor: is there a problem with the IRC logs? When I try to access the log for the 15th, it brings up the current log for the 16th
01:21:22saratogalinuxstb: "Rockbox runs on these players, but maybe be incomplete, less usable, or have serious problems that limit it to advanced users"

01:24:44 Quit JdGordon_ (Ping timeout: 180 seconds)
01:26:12linuxstbsaratoga: I'm just reading the mailing list thread at the moment... Are you suggesting that "unstable" targets don't need to have released bootloader binaries?
01:27:39saratogalinuxstb: just one linked from the wiki
01:27:52saratogareleasing bootloaders officially has proven quite difficult for us lately
01:28:00linuxstbI thought we were against putting binaries in the wiki...
01:28:11saratogathey shouldn't be hosted there, no
01:28:15saratogasince thats quite dangerous
01:28:16linuxstbYes, I've noticed the pp-bootloaders are still in the wrong place...
01:28:32saratogaputting them in a forum thread seems easy enough though
01:28:45saratogaas was done for the AMS sansas
01:29:09Zagorif anyone can make me a tarball or zip with them in the right places, I can fix it in no time. But I don't know where they should be (and I don't want to have to move them around).
01:29:11saratogabasically the idea was to take the soft release we did for the AMS devices and formalize it into a standard launch procedure for in progress ports
01:29:31saratogaZagor: i think they just overwrite the existing ones on the website
01:29:40linuxstbZagor: It's not that easy - someone also needs to move the old files to a backup location...
01:29:44saratogaand the existing ones get moved to whereever (or even deleted)
01:30:27linuxstbsaratoga: But just go ahead with your commit - as others said in the mailing list thread, if we argue about wording, nothing will change.
01:30:29Zagorwell, a shell script and a tarball then
01:30:39CIA-43New commit by saratoga (r22700): Update front page text to mention first of the new Unstable devices, the e200v2 and Fuze.
01:30:39saratogaok done
01:31:19saratogaZagor: would you check that what i've done is ok and then finish the job
01:31:55linuxstbZagor: I can't connect to
01:32:09Zagorlinuxstb: then your dns is slow.
01:32:40Zagorour bind is set to 30 minutes TTL, so everyone should have the new IP by now
01:32:55saratogathe text for unstable devices should probably word wrap but i didn't know how to do that
01:33:02kugelsaratoga: awesome. time to get the RC away from the bootloaders I suppose
01:33:27Zagorsaratoga: I'll tweak that later

01:34:57linuxstbShouldn't the page just wrap automatically?
01:35:12saratogakugel: the wiki already has nice directions
01:35:29saratogaIMO the forums should just be copy of the wiki, or else they should be combined if the forums one is more clear
01:35:43Zagorlinuxstb: it does, but only after the box fills the witdth of the screen. previously the containing box was centered and slightly narrower.
01:35:48kugelI think the ones in the forum are better though
01:36:04saratogaok then replace the wiki ones
01:36:18kugelthe box is huge on my 1024x768 display now :p
01:36:24saratogayeah mine too
01:36:32saratogaIMO it should be limited in width somehow
01:37:02kugelis it planned to list devices under unstable?

01:39:32saratogaalso waiting for Nico_P to take a look and get back to me with some questions
01:39:40JdGordon_fair enough
01:39:49saratogaduring the semester school takes most of my time
01:39:52linuxstbZagor: Hmm, that's what I'm resolving to...
01:39:52JdGordon_yeah, as usual not much discussion on th eml :(
01:40:09JdGordon_hehe, "no site here" for the ip
01:40:18Zagorlinuxstb: can you connect to
01:40:21kugelsaratoga: then I think the text in the paranthesis should be in a seperate line. it looks weird that stabe and unstable are lists
01:40:45saratogakugel: commit anything you think needs fixing
01:41:02JdGordon_Zagor: works.... doesnt
01:41:09saratogasvn co svn:// .
01:41:53JdGordon_I thought we decided the mr500 would be in the unstable group?

01:42:17ZagorJdGordon_: fixing
01:42:21Zagorlinuxstb: haha
01:43:24Zagorsaratoga, kugel: can we wait with committing web pages a little while? I still have a bunch of uncommitted changes due to the server move
01:43:33Zagorso commits now will cause conflicts
01:43:57ZagorI intend to commit my changes tomorrow

01:45:29saratogaping karl and ask him what he thinks, then make sure the wiki has directions, a list of what works and doesn't and a bootloader
01:45:41fish_ <- is there anything i can help you to add support for that controller as a non c coder? ;) some more details needed or something like that?
01:46:18kugelfish_: the bug tracker is not suitable for that kind of stuff
01:46:30kugelyou should've posted that in the developement thread of the d2
01:46:49saratogajust close that, and post anything useful in the development thread
01:47:19saratogaAFAIK the only person working on the D2 is shotofadds so you can just tell him things
01:47:22Zagorkugel: download page fixed. I'll work on the build page tomorrow.

12:15:03edo1493hi i have some questions...
12:15:58edo1493is rockbox an OS for ipod viedo 80gb?
12:16:28edo1493must i delete the apple firmware?

12:18:07linuxstbedo1493: It works on the "Video", but not the "Classic". And no, you dual-boot between the Apple firmware and Rockbox.
12:18:32edo1493i have an ipod video 80gb
12:18:47edo1493so i have two firmware ?
12:19:09edo1493i can't delete completely apple firmware?
12:20:12linuxstbNot all of it, no. But you don't know it's there once Rockbox is installed.
12:21:09edo1493but i have many songs and videos how can i download them to my pc?
12:21:47linuxstbIs that related to Rockbox? When you install Rockbox, it will find all the music already there (but won't play any of your videos)
12:22:11linuxstbWe also have a fine manual and website that you may want to read...
12:22:38edo1493ok so i must convert videos in rockbox format?
12:23:13linuxstbI wouldn't bother - Rockbox's video playback on the ipod video isn't as good as Apple's firmware, as Rockbox doesn't use the hardware video decoder in that ipod.
12:23:32linuxstbSo for videos, use Apple's firmware.
12:24:15edo1493:O so rockbox supports only music
12:24:24edo1493ok thank you
12:24:31edo1493i have downloaded the manual
12:24:42sinthetek it will play the videos
12:24:48sinthetekjust not as well as the apple firmware
12:24:56sinthetekwith that model
12:25:13edo1493so the video is not good
12:25:19sinthetekbut if you want to convert and play them on rockbox, then by all means...
12:25:40linuxstbedo1493: On the ipod video, no. But on most other devices Rockbox runs on, Rockbox video playback is better than the original firmware.
12:25:42sintheteki dunno how good it is personally, just trying to paraphrase what linuxstb said :P
12:26:12edo1493i want only remove mp4 an use a free format
12:26:20edo1493no proprietary
12:27:22edo1493ok i am hungry

I'm working on Nano2G support for ipodpatcher, but won't commit it if you have an rbutil release pending (the changes are quite intrusive, as the current ipodpatcher assumes lots of things about the firmware partition layout which isn't true for the Nano2G, so I've been making the ipodpatcher code more general).

13:46:42pyro_maniacZagor: did you see that not all commiter names are converted into real names?
13:59:49kugelZagor: I think I found some bugs in the build client
14:01:36kugelat least 1. my client, and some others, didn't get new builds after ~2min or so. the worst case I had was that my client doesn't get a build anymore after 1.5min, and the round took 3min after that (so 4.5min in total)
14:02:22kugelsadly rasher's site isn't update to date, his graphs show it easily
14:03:54kugelI think it was 22698
14:05:19kugeloh, and the other bug was that my client was totally underrated for no apparent reason, although it seems to have gotten better over a few builds. it was just strange because its rating was ok when I last attached it two days before or so
14:06:52kugeldiff-stats on the tracker are gone
14:10:38CIA-43New commit by zagor (r22704): Updated location of COMMITTERS file.
14:11:34Zagordiffstat installed
14:12:59Zagorclients don't start builds that they have no hope of completing. therefore some clients now stop before the round is finished.
14:13:30kugelshouldn't they still be used for speculative parallel building?
14:13:43kugelwhat's the point in leaving them idle?
14:14:33Zagoronly for builds that they can reasonable be expected to complete. having my viac3 start an ipodvideo build after 200 seconds is both silly and actually impacts round time negatively
14:14:52kugelapparently the last 6 build rounds took way too long (all ~4.5min), for whatever reason (the reason for my client was probably that it was totally underrated)
14:15:20kugelhow does it impact the round time?
14:15:28Zagorall rounds take way too long. that's simply the way it is.
14:15:34 Part pyro_maniac ("Leaving.")
14:17:27kugelit may sound silly, but it's not since the expectation isn't very accurate. I looked at the the build graphs, and the blue bars (the expectation) and the other bars vastly differed for many clients
14:18:07kugelmy client was idle for 3 min, even though it can manage 2 fully bloated builds in that time
14:18:30kugelat least 1 for sure, maybe the second one is getting close"> ...
14:19:36Zagoryeah, but which round?
14:21:11kugelI can't tell for sure, I seem to remember it was 22698
14:21:38kugelall the most recent builds were similar in that extend though
14:24:16peturhmmm"> isn't working for me
14:24:42kugelhow does that rating work? it's impressive how the avg speed for my client varied each round starting with r22693
14:26:33Zagorkugel: see sub getspeed in
14:26:50Zagorbasically it's the "33% mediam" of your last 20 builds
14:26:56kugel86, 86, 41, 87, 135
14:27:42Zagoryes, build speeds vary a lot. I still haven't split them up by compiler.
14:27:57kugelI also wonder why I only got checkwps builds in r22693. I got normal builds and had +200 avg speed when I had it attached before
14:28:06Zagorsome compilers give lower speed. bootloaders give lower speed and checkwps gives lower speed.
14:29:26kugelthat was also a round where I finished like 10x checkwps within 30 seconds, and the rest 150s of the build I was idle
14:31:33kugelI still don't understand how starting a not-expected-to-complete (which is even wrong for my and some other clients) negatively impacts the build time, can you explain that?
14:31:52kugelit doesn't make sense to me to let clients idle at all
14:33:26Zagorbecause each build has a "started by" counter, and the big sort routing uses that as one of the parameter to choose builds to run. so if clients mega-slow and molasses-sleep start building ipodvideo and onda747 then mega-fast and zippy-me will instead take player and recorder. which means ipodvideo will be completed later.
14:34:54 Join shaggy-h [0] (
14:36:30Zagornow rasher's page works again
14:36:39Zagor(it was my fault)
14:37:26kugelI don't completing ipodvideo later think that's a real problem. mega-fast and zippy-me will complete both builds and ipodvideo before mega-slow and -sleep even finished configure. if mega-fast and zippy started ipodvideo first, then player and recorder after that it evens out
14:37:57kugelbut I do think that trusting on inaccurate rating is a problem, and it looks like it makes builds take 4.5min instead of <3min
14:38:31Zagorno it doesn't
14:38:36kugelyou can see in the debug page how the green and blue bars differ
14:39:23peturI get the feeling that by making the system more complex, it also gets slower....
14:39:29kugelah, and I possibly only got checkwps builds because I entered the round late (I forgot to turn it on before my commit and did it right after)
14:39:33Zagoruh, yes? sometimes the client is much faster, sometimes it is much slower
14:40:08Zagoryes, that would be it. you start with the small builds if you come in the middle of a round
14:40:24Zagorccache makes speed prediction nearly futile

14:42:43Zagorif you look at the graphs you see that it's only at the very end that clients go idle. and only the very slow clients.
14:43:13kugelmy client and b32-roolku really look bad in">
14:43:54kugelmy client isn't slow, it's rather fast. it always has been in the top15. it does ipodvideo in <110s without ccache
14:44:16Zagoryes, that is a special case. since you only built bootloaders you got a very low score.
14:44:52Zagorthat whole round looks rather suspect though.
14:45:17kugelall 4.5 min rounds do
14:45:21*kugel thinks the rating is too inaccurate to let it dismiss clients
14:46:42Zagorfine, I'll disable that check a few rounds
14:49:50Zagorregarding "it evens out": no, it doesn't. that's the whole challenge of build scheduling. fast rounds require an optimally laid puzzle, not just brute force.
14:52:59kugelthis best-fit is still only applied for the round start, right?
14:54:37kugelwell, then I imagine it would be better to use best-fit within the rounds too if possible. this way mega-fast would get ipod-video and mega-slow would get the player, instead of killing mega-slow and let mega-fast do both ipodvideo and player
14:54:40Zagornow look at 22704, which has the check disabled. all clients that were previously disabled now get all their builds cancelled
14:55:15kugelyou should've warned me, my client wasn't on :p
14:55:25Zagorlook at some others. like b32-roolku
14:55:37kugelthe round was 30s faster still, even without my fast client
14:55:49peturkugel: that's why the build rounds are slow, you keep your client off :p
14:56:12Zagorspeeds vary. 22694 was sub-3
14:56:45kugelI meant compared to the same build which was done with the check
14:56:55Zagorand yes, it would be fun to best-fit in the middle of rounds. but with the speed estimates we get, it's just wasted effort.
14:56:58kugelit looks like the same clients participated, except mine
14:57:40Zagorthat doesn't really matter. they get different builds and therefore run at different speeds.
15:01:16kugelbest-fit in the middle seems vastly more promising than deactivating clients to me
15:01:48kugelalso, a lot of clients even got their initial build killed in r22704
15:02:31Zagoryup. fun, isn't it?
15:02:31kugellabb-zagor looks to me as if the disabling of the check enabled him to do a lot more builds, but it may just seem so
15:03:00Zagorlooking at single rounds is like reading tea-leaves. you can see whatever you want so see :-)
15:03:05kugelshaidBuild-Shaid too
15:03:36kugellooking at other rounds doesn't help either since they have the check
15:03:58kugelit's a bit sad that the system is so non-deterministic
15:04:10kugelbut you can't really help it
15:04:14Zagorwhat you should be looking at is the difference between blue and green bars. how much they differ both positively and negatively. then consider how much use it is re-allocating the schedule in the middle of the round with such noisy values.

15:05:17edo1493i am installing rockbox and i have a question
15:05:22ZagorI played a while with allocating slightly smaller builds (not filling the entire round time) so that the roolku clients would not be cancelled. but in the end it takes more time than it gains.

16:45:42saratogathe beast shouldn't be made "unstable" until we have actual install directions on the wiki for it

16:46:49GreatBeaverare decoders often buggy?
16:46:54LloreanOdds are in many cases "Rockbox sounds better" is either placebo effect, or someone talking about how we offer more sound altering options than the original firmware on their player.
16:47:01n1ssaratoga: yeah, and as linuxstb mentioned, an officialy released bootloader
16:47:05GreatBeaveroh ok
16:47:09saratogaif someone on the internet says X sounds better its usually because they're dumb
16:47:50GreatBeaverim reading about some computer software player that loads all the music into ram rather than reading it off the hard drive and it claims it can have an audible improvement
16:47:58GreatBeaveri was wondering if it could be applied to rockbox
16:48:09LloreanGreatBeaver: Rockbox plays all audio from RAM.
16:48:16 Quit evilnick ("Page closed")
16:48:31GreatBeavervirtual ram? i think my mp3 player harddrive has like 8 mb of cache
16:48:33ZagorGreatBeaver: if it has any effect, it is likely only because of noise caused by the harddrive etc. and rockbox already buffers audio before playing.
16:48:41LloreanI suspect you may be misunderstanding the article, since the general process of dealing with files is "load to ram, then manipulate/use"
16:49:14GreatBeaverhere's the software i was reading
16:49:32GreatBeaverit says it avoids I/O interference by using actual ram and not virtual ram
16:50:24ZagorGreatBeaver: the presence of the word "audiophile" on that page indicates it is aimed at an, uh, religious crowd :)
16:50:38n1sZagor: heh :)

16:50:57n1sGreatBeaver: anyway, rockbox has no virtual ram
16:50:59TorneIt's not technically inaccurate. :)
16:51:08GreatBeavercool ok
16:51:21Torneinternal sound devices will pick up interference from other internal devices
16:51:30Tornethe less of them you are using the less interference there will be
16:51:40Tornebut this is a really tiny effect, unless your motherboard is exceptionally badly designed
16:51:51Torneand this is why pro audio devices are external boxes that attach over usb or similar :)
16:52:06saratogaGreatBeaver: i think you've misunderstood everything on that page
16:52:09LloreanTorne: Or unless you're a Sansa e200v1
16:52:25GreatBeaverthe webpage talks about both software and hardware
16:52:26LloreanThough I guess that qualifies as "exceptionally badly designed"
16:52:27TorneLlorean: i presume that comes under "motherboard exceptionally badly designed"?

16:53:21Tornethe remote lcd goes down the same wire as the audio though, no?
16:53:24Torneso that's understandable :)
16:53:36saratogahmm although the author of that webpage is clearly an idiot
16:53:43LloreanGreatBeaver: Needless to say, we take steps where applicable to minimize hardware noise on the audio output.
16:53:58GreatBeaverwow really?
16:54:27TorneGreatBeaver: that page is *mostly* a load of nonsense. it explains that jitter comes from DACs (which is true) but then talks about software induced jitter

17:28:42Torneas long as they don't violate the GPL, anyone can do what they like
17:28:45Torneincluding being paid to work on it
17:30:43GreatBeaverin rockbox for iriver, it searches the hard drive whenever you navigate inside of "Files", would it be better to just make a text file of all the folders in Files\Music and not search the hard drive until someone clicks play on a music file?
17:30:51evilnickBut the GPL involves making the source available, as I understand it. Which means that DRM couldn't feasibly be supported, without being "cracked" in a nanosecond.

17:31:53evilnickIt's probably a no-do
17:32:45evilnickGreatBeaver: First point here:
17:33:07peturGreatBeaver: if you enable dircache, the directory structure and filelists are cached so the drive doesn't spin (unless you click a file to play)
17:33:39GreatBeaverit only works if you access your folders by Database i think
17:34:21GreatBeaverit also applies to files in Files?
17:34:48peturas long as it fits the cache (which is quite large)
17:34:55GreatBeaverhow many mb is the cache if i have 4000 songs? i think the cache on my mp3 player is 30mb
17:35:10TorneGreatBeaver: probably less than 1MB
17:35:16petur4000 songs is nothing...
17:35:36GreatBeaverim going to try to cache
17:38:24GreatBeaverload to ram is dircache right?
17:40:02GreatBeaverah nm i found it
17:40:04Tornethat loads the database to ram, which speeds up database navigation

23:04:27AlexPjo_: Use follow playlist, then when you want to play another song by the same artist as is currently playing, click select to get into the folder as Llorean said, then hilight the new song you want, open the context menu on it, select playlist, then queue next (if you don't want it to stay in the playlist)

23:19:36bluebrothernow with the nick intended :)
23:19:52mcuelenaereaidy: seems to work fine here (VX747 sim)
23:20:12aidyworked fine yesterday too
23:20:22bluebrotherlinuxstb: how shall I proceed with mknkboot relicensing? Is it ok if I simply change the license header and commit, or do you think it's better if you did as you wrote it?
23:21:01linuxstbbluebrother: I guess I should do it... Do you have a patch though ;)
23:21:56linuxstbBut it seems almost too trivial to relicense. So you're intending to incorporate that functionality into beastpatcher?
23:22:43bluebrotheryes, that was my plan. Then we can get an equivalent to ipodpatcher for the beast.
23:23:25linuxstbOK, I'll just copy the header from beastpatcher/main.c
23:23:32bluebrotherok, great.

23:41:37jo_AlexP : Got it all nice and groovy... just a quick question, if I press select to go in original dir and choose another song, can I go right back on the random playlist when I hit next? Must I always go to playlist catalog and reload the playlist?
23:41:54froggymanmy iPod 5.5G video is still in the "Warning Low Battery" screen, I just got this yesterday, so I plugged it in and let it charge overnight, it is still on the same low battery screen. Is there anything else I can do to fis it, or can I consider the battery dead and have to get a new one?

23:44:40AlexPjo_: Highlight the song you want, open the context menu, then select playlist then queue next
23:45:15AlexPjo_: It'll play the song you just added (after the current one), then carry on with the playlist as before (and the song that you added will be removed from the playlist)
23:45:55aidymcuelenaere: well it doesn't here, it works on the target though (well it's like on your sim, I might have done something wrong viewport wise, but I had it working fine before)
23:46:23mcuelenaereaidy: can't help you much about that, I'm not a viewport etc expert
