Favorites as a plugin
Date: Fri, 18 Jul 2003 18:15:19 -0700
Ok this is something I worked on in the past, but I was waiting on 2.x before
submitting it. Since we have a plugin api (great job guys), I decided to make
it a rock.
favorites.c - is the actual rock code.
plugin_faves.diff - is the diff to apply in the apps directory. This updates
the plugin api and puts a menu option to Save a favorite.

When listening to any song you can select Menu->Save Favorite and it will build
a playlist of songs you selected in /favorites.m3u.
The original feature request....
--- reprinted for the click challenged ------
I was mulling over the idea and it seems fairly slick.
A one button keystroke to add a currently playing file
to a 'favorites' playlist.
I know with 15+ gigs of music I have a hard time
picking out the music I like most frequently unless I
am listening to it. I would hope that this would make
it easier to manage."
My implementation is not "one button", but a top level menu option should
suffice for the majority of users.
I have tested on the player only. It should work on a recorder as well.
if no one objects, then I will submit the code to cvs.
