I've a small problem with the new playmode for music files.
It seems that a have to press everytime on a music file if the previuos track has ended (in play mode), This was not so in mp 1.1. I don't know if this is a bug or not. If not, Can I change some settings to get the same result than in mp 1.1 ?

I know that I can add all my tracks to a playlist and then use the playlist mode, but it's not so user friendly (Hard to understand for the rest of family).

    Not 100% clear on what you are saying but the defaults should be set to emulate what happened in 1.1
    Play Music 1.2 - MediaPortal Wiki

    Play mode means that whenever you press play or enter/ok on a file that file will immediately start playing and cancel what is already playing. The add all to playlist option sets whether all the other files are played as well (which I think is what you are saying?)

    I'll try to explain it better.

    - "shares view"
    - enter on track ---> track plays
    - track ended ---> next track starts.

    mp 1.2
    - "shares view", "playmode"
    - enter on track ----> track starts
    - track ended ----> mp stops playing, but I got it working now if I put the "add all tracks to playlist" on.

    So with "add all tracks to playlist" and "play now behavior" = none, I get the same behavior as in mp 1.1.

    But it seems that there is a bug with the "add all tracks to playlist" on. For example: If I start track 1, track 2 starts and so on,
    I'll try to get logs about this

    These are the default values in SVN so you must have either upgraded from an older SVN or changed the values manually.

    If there is another issue can you create a new thread? Thanks
