View Full Version : Not sure is this is where I do functionality request



2004-12-17, 12:56
You guys rock. Did the shortcut thing last night and I was able to see
all my music. So as of today I am 97% satisfied with my SqueezeBox. Once
I can figure out how to make it do my dishes, I'll be 100% satisfied.

Hi Emile,

my recommendation for this would be to create a high
level folder on one of the discs, and then put
links/shortcuts to all the music on the other disc

e.g. C:\Slimserver_music
containing (-> means link or shortcut to):
\DiscC -> C:\MyMusicOnThisDisc
\DiscD -> D:\MyMusicOnThisDisc
\DiscE -> E:\MyMusicOnThisDisc
\DiscF -> F:\MyMusicOnThisDisc

Then point Slimserver at C:\Slimserver_music (My
pathnames are just examples - change them according to
your setup.)

When you Browse artists/genre/albums you won't know the
music is split across several discs.

When you "Browse Music Folder" the top level you'll see
will be DiscC, DiscD, DiscE and DiscF, and from there you
can navigate up and down the directory structure.

I don't know of any simple way of avoiding the top level
directories unless you actually link the contents of all
the MyMusicOnThisDisc directories to the Slimserver_music
directory. That would work, but could be a pain to update
depending on the directory structure you use.

I hope this helps.

The plugin will require that your wife be named "SQL".
