Subject: Feature request: Virtual Playlists
From: Johan Vromans (jvromans_at_squirrel.nl)
(Note I use the term Virtual Playlist since I couldn't find a better
term, although I know VP is already in use for something else.)
Some time ago, I tried to rip a CD with continuous music, and play it
without interruptions. It turned out to be impossible when ripping
into separate tracks -- there's always a small pause due to technical
limitations of MP3 encoding.
So the only solution seems to be to rip the CD in one big MP3 file.
But then you lose the display of the tracks, and the ability to search
for a specific piece os music.
Then I heard something about Virtual Playlists. If I understood
correctly (which doesn't necessarily needs to be the case) VPs would
make it possible to 'fake' a track structure on top of a single MP3
file, making it possible to display the right track information,
search for tracks, and so on. A VP would be like an ordinary playlist,
but each entry can have a starting position and length associated.
Wouldn't this be a nice feature for Rockbox?
