View Full Version : Play and Add on Browse Music Folder

I'm a bit confused about the behaviour difference between browsing the database compared to browsing the music folder.

If I browse the db and press play, then, as expected the playlist is replaced by the new track and, if selected in the server settings, the entire album/etc gets added. If I select add then the selected track/album/etc gets appended to the end of the playlist but the currently playing track continues without interruption.

However the same is not true for browsing the music folder. Play works as expected but 'add' works in exactly the same way as play, replacing the current playlist with the selection and playing immediately. Clearly this isn't desirable!

I've had a look at the files to see if I could figure some of this out, but I haven't had much luck as I don't know perl.

Is there an easy way to achieve the (expected) functionality?

we'll see about getting it fixed for the next build.
