HI, is there a way that you could add a "Single"
playmode, so it stops after playing one song, instead of
repeating all, or repeating single? That way, it could also
be used as an "auto-off", where it shuts off after one
song. Also, and maybe this isnt possible, but you could
have an option to play X number of songs and then stop,
where the X is configurable.
This task depends upon

2007-10-15: A request to re-open the task has been made. Reason for request: For deejaying It isnt a very comfortable option to but every song in a single playlist... Auto Cue (or Auto pause) would be very much help.

I would also like this feature, I use my archos in live
perfomances and would only like to play a single song.

A great idea - one of the uses for my Jukebox is sound
effects - and currently I have to put each sound effect in a
separate folder, then change to the folder and play (or use
single track playlists). It would be great to be able to put all
the sound effects for a show in one folder, in order and simply
press play each time a sound effect is required, and for the
right one to play. I'd also like it if the Jukebox would cue
itself, so that the track starts as soon as play is pressed.

Just to complete the feedback loop, see my feature request :  FS#5638  — Auto pause after each track

one thing you can do is stop all playback click and hold the select button on the song you want to play once. and then select playlist and click insert. it will then only play that song. thats what i do all the time.

To me it would be an important difference not having to stop playback to accomplish this.
A "Play Single" mode or "Auto Pause between tracks" would to me be as motivated as any "repeat" mode.

Another way to use it:
"Mmm, I feel really sleepy. I'll let my player finnish this song and then stop, as I'm probably already asleep by then. Any new song would wake me up."

I think I prefer the "Auto PAUSE between tracks" idea as I suppose it makes starting the next song is faster that way.
But "Play Single Track" could easily be accompanied by "Play Single Folder" (as good logic as "repeat track" and "repeat folder").

The main use for the Autopause Feature for me would be in performances, for example a theatre show where you would need to assemble a playlist of sound effects and music, and then play them one at a time on cue, just by pressing the play button. The playback would then pause automatically after playing each track (ideally loading the first bit of the neat track into a buffer), and be ready to play the next track instantly as soon as the play button is pressed again. As a lot of shows like this are one man operations, there would be no time to select different playlists etc.
