FS#1832 - Reverse playlist&directory play

This is annoying: You have lost the bookmark/resume
point in a directory of 50 songs and you can’t remember
which was the last song that you listened to.

One easy (it seems…) way round this would be to
OPTIONALLY allow playlists and directories to be played
in reverse order.

Having played the playlist or directory forwards you can
go back to that directory and play it in reverse order.
(Track 50, 49, 48, 47 etc)

Closing all feature requests.

Ok, following scenario:
You have ~50 tracks. You play the first ~10 tracks, then loose the resume point. Start from the end, play the last, say, 8 tracks. You loose the resume point again. Now you know there are ~30 tracks in between the start and the end you haven’t listened to. What now?

I don’t consider this feature as useful. Playing the first seconds of each track should be sufficient to decide if you already listened to that track. And in that case you can simply skip it :)

this is my attempt at the request… it sort of works, except you have to go into the playlist viewer and manually change to the first track or it will keep playing in the order it was before (I dont know the playlist code enough to fix that atm)…
