View Full Version : Moose: Queueing an Album

I couldn't see this reported anywhere so...When adding an album to the
playlist via Moose or playing it now by double-clicking it queues the
tracks in track name collating sequence not in track number sequence.

I may as well add a couple of requests while I'm here :)

May we have track number added to the /now playing/ screen?

If I modify the width of the columns in /Now Playing/ it forgets my
changes after I've closed and re-opened Moose. It would be nice if it
remembered my changes.

Ah, not noticed that, but I guess it makes sense.. Moose queues an
album via a single CLI playlistcontrol command. As far as I can tell,
there's no way of specifying an order here. Perhaps there's a slimserver
option tucked away somewhere ? Not sure..

On the subject of adding albums though I'll shortly be re-coding
Moose a bit to add each album track, one-by-one, rather than the
whole album.. Doing this would fix quite a few problems:
* it could use file-paths rather than ID's, so not being totally in-sync
with the ss db wouldnt matter so much..
* if an album's in flac and mp3, you could just make it add the flac
files, etc..
* custom track orders
Other than extra traffic, I cant think of any downsides at the moment..

Good idea.. Should be in the next release..
