FS#5170 - Playlist - Track Display - id3 tag for use with TagCache

Include an option to show id3 tags in the playlist options. When using with TagCache and iTunes filenames the playlist is useless.

It will be a minor performance hog. Playlists are only kept in memory as index positions within the .m3u file and getting the file names is done by extracting the proper piece from the file. Getting the meta data from that file instead of just using the name will complicate matters.

Still doable of course.

Why would it hog any more rescources that simply browsing the songs using tagcache, which does not interfere with playback? Couldn’t it simply display the playlist using the same method that it displays songs when browsing?

The “Playlist” display is not useable to anyone who uses a program that changes the filename when synching, such as iTunes or JR Media Center, which is likely a large portion of the market. Also, many people use naming conventions that utilize long filenames, which also can effectively make the Playlist display useless since the names displayed are truncated.

I’d like to see this offered for people that use tagcache.
