Subject: RE: Question about dyn. playlists
From: Tim Elliott (telliott_at_sigecom.net)
Date: 2003-08-09


Hardeep helped me figure this out. I was confused about the shuffle
thing and how to randomize a dynamic playlist.

Here is an expansion of Hardeep's example. I'm sure he will point out
any errors.

Playlist contains tracks 1 2 3 4 5 and we are currently playing track 2.

1. Insert W -> 1 2 W 3 4 5
2. Insert X -> 1 2 W X 3 4 5
3. Insert Last Y -> 1 2 W X 3 4 5 Y
4. Insert Z -> 1 2 W X Z 3 4 5 Y
5. Insert Next Q -> 1 2 Q W X Z 3 4 5 Y (Q cuts in line, before the
other queued tracks.
6. Insert <dir A> -> 1 2 Q W X Z <dir A> 3 4 5 Y (all tracks in <dir A>
are inserted in order regardless of shuffle setting)

If you are done inserting tracks, directories (folders), playlists and
want to randomize everything, turn shuffle on. If it's on, turn it off
and back on to reshuffle everything.

Tim
