View Full Version : FW: Filter listings to player

2004-03-22, 08:18
I'd like to see something like this as well, possibly providing a different
music root for each player at the server itself. I'd also be handy for
keeping explicit stuff available at certain players, and Britney Spears off
my player :)

This might be managed by links/shortcuts and would require the creation of
multiple libraries, (with refs to the actual "songs") which could then be
assignable to (and/or selectable from ) the various players...
