    Exclude Playlist From Library Views

    I have some playlists with uniqe artists/ Albums. I dont want this artists to show up in the library views (Albums/artists/ etc). But i still want to play/browse and add new songs over LMS to this playlists.

    Can this be accomplished? Do i need to use multi library?

    Thanks in advance

    In LMS you could move those folders outside the main music folder. Add
    that new folder as an additional music folder, but uncheck all content
    type options on the right hand side. This would allow you to browse
    those folders using BMF without adding their content to the library.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But what is BMF?

    I tried setting up multi librarys. Now i can seperate them in custom browse plugin. Is it possible to use the dynamic playlists with just one library or is it always the whole library?

    Is it possible to skip a whole album? So i load up a playlist and use skip but.instead of.playing the next track it skips to the.next album?

    Browse Music Folder (one way to access your files from the default My
    Music menu).

    I don't know these plugins.

    Not with a single click.

    @ Michael: Didnt you add something like another "filesystem" like temp/ or something similar at some time for exact that purpose ?

    Browse Filesystem would give you access to the full filesystem (as far
    as the LMS user is allowed to access). By adding a folder without having
    it scanned (no media type checked) you'd get quick access to that
    particular folder without storing its data in the database. Kind of a
    shortcut for Browse Filesystem to specific folders.

    Seams like its not something people really use. Which puzzles me because i think it would be a great feature.

    Thanks anyway and also a big thanks for all your great plugins.

    Sure. But, you know, most people don't want to fiddle with URLs if they
    can just click it. I know you're not most people.
