    The "other players" plugin did this , but it's not maintained and is very likely broken .

    But why walk back to the other room, use a phone or tablet as remote ? Then walk with me becomes more useful if you forget to forward the playlist ahead of you .

    I looked into this, and unfortunately it's a bit more complicated than I
    thought. I can do something to mimic the behaviour of transferring the
    random play mode to the other player. But it would eg. not transfer the
    list of played tracks etc. without some changes to the RandomPlay plugin.

    "Grab the music"

    Thank you Michael for your constant support!
    Coming back to my earlier question, would it be feasible to implement in MWWM a "grab playlist and shut down" feature?

    The "grab playlist from other player"? I just released this yesterday. I thought. Didn't you get an update?

    Sorry, I did not hope that you could code the upgrade so quickly. It's there and works like a charm!
    Thank you a lot, Michael!

    Hi Michael,

    Just wondering if it would be possible to tweak/improve "Music, Walk with me" a bit please?

    It seems that whenever queue is transferred from sync'ed player ( both by grab or transfer options) original sync is changed/broken.
    It is particularly painful when previously sync players are in one room (2 SB Radios in stereo pair).. One of them is stopped but other is still playing and now synced with transfer destination.

    I have noticed that when testing "Material Skin - Move queue to another player" feature which is apparently based on "Music, Walk with me" code. Both indeed work in same way.

    I have suggested here
    https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...l=1#post981009
    adding extra steps to remember source sync before transfer and restoring it after.

    I guess same behavior which is present with "Group Players" plugin which gives option to restore previous sync when dismantling Group. Hope that makes sense and its possible.
    Cheers!

    Walk with me

    I am not Michael, and it has nothing directly to do with your question, but have you tried the “Group Players” plugin to create a group for the room? It might help.


    Cheers,

    Rainer

    Thanks Rainer,

    Although groups plugin is awesome and I use it in different scenarios, it isn't practical in this particular one..
    anyway I think I'm sorted as converting fully into Material Skin which developer kindly added requested improvements into "move queue into another player" which is similar to "Walk with Me".
    Cheers!

    Yet another feature request for "Music, Walk With Me"

    I would appreciate a possibility to "swap" playlists between two players.

    In particular I am thinking of a third option like "Swap playlist with..." (in addition to "Continue playback on..." and "Grab playback from...").
    This would be a great benefit. (At least for me... It happens quite often my kids want to continue listening their audiobooks in the exact room where I am just listening to what they call "daddy music" ).

    While you wait ... this might work ....

    Create a new Group player called "Daddy's Music"
    Associate it with the player that you are at ... and press Play on "Daddy's Music".

    Then when you are told to move simply pause the group player and change its membership to wherever you are being exiled to.

    The kids' playlist can then be moved to their new destination.
    You could also make a Group player called "Kid's Music" and do the same there.

    Then resume the group player(s).
