View Full Version : Playing songs from Browse Music Folder

Not something I usually do, so I don't know if this is considered a bug or not...

My wife just tried to play all songs by Simply Red. She generally uses Browse Music Folder to find music stored within her music folder. I haven't got her trained in the use of the Multi-library plugin yet (actually I have, but she forgets and uses this archaic method instead).

So, she browsed to the Simply Red folder within this heirarchy:

Alex's Music\
Simply Red\
Stars\
several awful tracks within this folder.mp3


When she presses Play on the Simply Red item, it reports "Empty Playlist" and plays nothing. She can play Stars folder though.

I assume this is because there are no music files directly within the Simply Red folder (that it doesn't descend all sub-folders). Is this how it has always worked, or would you expect it to play all songs in any sub-folder beneath the chosen folder?

It should play all songs beneath the folder.

I filed a bug: http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=6455

Feel free to go in and add any additional information or comments.

Thanks!
