When I click on GOLD it takes me into the tracks on the album but from the GOLD (album window) for that artist there is no option to just select play from one of the albums under that artist. I hope this makes sense.
I found that rather confusing at first too.
When you have found your music, by finding Abba and seeing the list of albums, you have to click on an album to display the tunes, then click on MORE across the bottom and then PLAY ALL.
When your tunes are playing, if you hit F7 or click on the middle gyro mouse button to bring up the menu again, on the far left, click that media button and you can find the RANDOM option up top.
I believe, if you want to add more music to the queue, while somehting is playing, you have to do the MORE and PLAY ALL buttons to add them to the list. This sometimes works for me and other times it just replaces the current queue with what I selected.
I have no idea how you manage playlists in LinuxMCE, but that's something I really haven't sat down and tried to figured out yet.
I don't know how you tell it to play "all of Abba's songs", I find it wants to be told to play a specific song or an entire album.
Is there a wiki page with user instructions on how to access music? or photos for that matter, I have no idea how you make it play all photos in a folder...
On the other issue of moving the video folder, was I correct in using the user_1 video folder. I have not moved those files yet. I just want to be sure that is where I need to move it to.
If you put them into the /home/user_1/data/* directory, they will 'private' files owned by the first user you added to the system.
If you want files to be public, they should be into /home/public/data/*
I also find that you need to fiddle with the owner:group and set them to root:public if you want some of the attributes to work, even if I've copied them into the public folders using the Samba shares. When in the media file sync admin area, if I try to set the attribute to "Music Video" or "Movie" it doesn't 'stick'. I go look at the ownership and I see plutu_gerry:public. I change it to root:public, try again, and it works.
I don't know if that's the way it's supposed to work or not, seems kinda odd that you'd have to go fiddling with permissions in order to set attributes in the admin pages.
