    Don't know if this is the right place to ask, so excuse me if my thinking is wrong.
    Is it possible to add a function which remembers where I stopped listening and asks next time I choose this audio file to continue from there? I mean an handling similar to how MP asks this for video files which you don't watch to the end?
    Background for my question is, if one listens to audiobooks ore large live concert bootlegs with MP it's quite uncomfortable to find the point where you stopped last time...

    Is there a way to map a key on the mce remote to add only the selected track to the playlist?
    In my opinion this would be a huge improvement to the usability of music playlists especially in
    comparison to the necesarry effort.
    Depends what you mean by playlist.
    If you mean what is playing now then yes you can map an action to queue the selected track (or you can change the options in config so when pressing OK on a track this is the defaukt )

    If you mean add a track to a playlist that might not be playing then I don't think there is an action for this via the context menu
    I guess it's rather the second option. I would like to edit saved playlists by adding tracks to a playlist regardless of whether currently being played or not.
    Is that an improvement sugestion that could be implemented by adding the respective actions to the remote mapping (so rather remote-related)
    or would this require changes of the music section?

    How about adding to the database field containing MusicBrainz Identifier?

    Some preliminary work is going on to re-design the database and this will include MusicBrainz IDs
    This is at a very early stage but is going on.

    In MediaPortal 1.4 music improvements were hardly implemented, can we hope that a little bit of the improvements will get into Mediaportal 1.5 ? Especially for these improvements ?

    -AutoDJ with Last.FM Rework
    -adding shuffle and repeat buttons to now-playing
    -provide Feedback of what is in current playlist

    Other than
    • Better ASIO support
    • Initial implementation of WASAPI
    • Replay Gain
    • Skip steps
    • Resume
    • Quite a few fixes for artist and album info scraping
    these were all things that were asked for in these threads.....

    How about add source tag for Music Views record:
    Code:
    public class MusicViews : BaseViews
     {
                     private string[] selections = new string[]
                                        {
                                          "album",
                                          "artist",
                                          "albumartist",
                                          "title",
                                          "genre",
                                          "year",
                                          "track",
                                          "timesplayed",
                                          "rating",
                                          "favorites",
                                          "recently added",
                                          "composer",
                                          "conductor",
                                          "disc#",
                                          "source"
                                        };
    source = folder name from Configuration?
