Anyway to play music files using the 'Track' attribute?
« on: January 23, 2008, 06:50:14 pm »
Hi,

  First of all, Ive tried the new beta and generally it is working well.

Now, the 'Play All' option plays the audio files randomly.
Any chance to make it consider the track number (given it holds that metadata already)? Can we expect this soon?

Thanks,

  Nir.

This was the first feature I noticed wasn't present when I loaded some music on my first test LinuxMCE box a few days ago.  The tracks don't actually play randomly for me, they play in alphabetical order, which in music/cd terms i guess is random.
I'd love to code this, if I knew how.
Is it a matter of building something or using an existing engine like xine is currently for video?  Something like xmms or audacious? and then just creating the buttons and output?
