The first request is to kdf his excellent Fishbone skin: Would it be
possible to also include the total library play time in the library stats in
the top right pane (as is available under library statistics at the remote
devices)?

Secondly is it possible to provide an option to calculate and display the total
play-list duration for play-lists containing non-streaming file types?

Cheers,

Rob

I don't think the server makes that information avaiable to that page. However,
it could still be possible to add that. In the player UI, under
settings->information->library information, there is an item for total play
time, so the feature IS available. However, this hasn't worked properly for me
and I have not had time to figure out what part of my library is messing this
up. Assuming its just me, then I can look into adding this to the stats pages.

This is a bit more complicated as the server only tabulates the total time for
all songs. It does not keep track for playlists and would have to be added as a
new routine to count up the duration of each song and add together. It could be
possible if someone was willing to create the patch.
