It pauses playback as soon as the power supply is removed and starts
playback again when power is back: if you have the jukebox in your car it
will stop playing automatically if you turn off ignition.

The dynamic playlist is the current playlist in memory (in a special file)
which is created when you play a song or playlist. When you play one song
from a directory, a dynamic playlist is generated which contains all the
songs from the directory. If you insert or queue songs, you make additions
to the dynamic playlist.

to know details about certain features)

-Can i save playlists created with my jukebox?
Go to the menu, playlist options, save dynamic playlist

viewer: A text viewer, you start it by playing a .txt file
favorites: I'm not quite sure, but I think it's a plugin which adds the
current song to a special favourites playlist
helloworld: Every programmer's first programm is the helloworld-programm
which does nothing except displaying "Hello world!" on the screen.
