Hi,

As subject says. I wan't to get my oldest son a player like the radio. And this is where my troubles start. I don't want some of my music to be visible on his player. Is it possible to differentiate like that? Or perhaps some third party plugin for this?

Take a read of this thread (hey, this is the second time this week I've recommended it!):

I think this could be what you're looking for.

Essentially you can customise the menus to limit what the kids can get to, and then use the MultiLibrary plugin to limit them to a subset of the library.

Since I design systems, I'm wondering how you would separate the music. Is there a split in the directory tree or would it be based-on artist or what ?

I haven't used MultiLibrary yet but I believe you define library delineators based on the directory structure. I'd guess that with CustomBrowse you could probably also do it on a tag basis.

Thanks guys, I'll investigate suggestions these next couple of days and get back. Sorry about the late follow-up.
