    Hi Jameson_UK.

    I am not sure if you want items brought forward from the last thread so that they are not lost???

    If you do, can I kick it off then with a re-request of the synchronised playing of music across multiple clients like this XBMC plugin: [RELEASE] Multiroom Audio & Video Streaming Plugin (Syncronized) - XBMC Community Forum

    One implementation would be to start a client playing music as normal, and then have the option "link to client" in a menu in the music menu which when selected brings up a submenu listing the names of available "streaming" clients.

    Thanks, and keep up the excellent work. 1.2 is a really nice step forwards in so many ways.

    Thanks

    Robbo100

    P.S Please delete this post if you do not want repeats of previously requested features.

    A little idea in the aftermath of the Play vs. Playlist mode change:

    How about an option to select the position of the next enqueued / played song? Standard it could be "Now", Options would be "Next" and "End" (before scrobbled songs).

    This could be even selectable within the GUI (aka End would be close to Party Mode).

    This can be done via context menu. there is a play next option which will play the selection after the next song. Selecting a track will add it to the end. My thought is that this is sufficient? you can achieve this but another option in config would be confusing?

    Here are my five cents for new ideas.

    - I would like the possibility of a "Favourite albums" view. This would require to be able to flag albums as favourite.
    - And it would be even better if we would be able to add additional attributes which allow to filter on. E.g. My girlfriends albums vs. my albums

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hi. I know you can select this option, but this would change the play behaviour. The problem is, that I see at least 3 use cases for the play button (ehm, sorry 4 including the test/play workflow from the feedback thread):

    1. Play this song (and optionally all following songs) NOW
    2. Finish the current song ( as I am a nice DJ ) and then play the selected song (usually just 1 song), this could be DJ Mode
    3. Enqueue this song to the end of my playlist (could stay in menu for me, others may disagree), this is advanced DJ Mode
    4. Play this song now, but add it to the end (or as next song) in the playlist (and let me undo). This is playlist builder mode.

    So if I could select either my single prefered way of doing things in config, or if I could change them within MP (as I might use several of them) it would be perfect.

    So you could have "Usage Profiles", which would set Play Mode vs. Playlist Mode, Add all and Add @ position First, Next, Last.

    :D

    I would love a possibility, to rate the Song in the Now Playing Screen and the Playlist Screen. Recently I can only rate a song in the Music-View. This not soo good.

    +1 for this idea, would be great!

    If possible it would be even better if it could be "platform independend" - e.g. that you could use your small internet-radio to tune into the stream.
