I tried to install OneButtonMusic, but it doesn't show up in configuration.
The installer says that it has been installed correctly under folder C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\process.
But if I open this folder there is no file OneButtonMusic.dll.
There is no OneButtonMusic.dll on my whole system.

FYI: This is a german Windows Vista so this folders name is
C:\cProgramme\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\process (don't know if this matters).

    shouldn't matter if it is german or not. i have also a german windows version here.
    you could simply extract the dll from the mpe file.
    it is like a zip file.

    Never mind, I got it working. Had to run the ExtenIsion Installer as Administrator.

    Hi
    Any chance you can add a fairly simple feature that would solve a big problem for me. I have all my music in one folder trouble is I also have my podcasts directory in the same music folder. When I One Button Music selects 10 random albums it often pick some podcasts (because there are so many) to play which i don't want to happen. Could you add a regular expression type filter to exclude certain directories when it comes to selecting. If there is an alternative method of achieving the same result could some one please let me know.

    Cheers

    Hi
    Thanks for the suggestion but wouldn't I have to rate all my music somehow or at a minimum rate all my podcasts and what about new podcasts as they are downloaded - I'd have to remember to rate them as they come through? A filter would work nicely especially if I could specify multiple regex's to exclude filenames, or particular artists , I could also exclude my kids music which i have stored in the same spot.

    Thanks again

    yes that's right. you can prob get tools / scripts that will monitor a directory and assign a genre / rating automatically.
    atlernatively a 3rd party tool could regularly auto create a playlist based on directories then you could use that with one button music.

    but yes all suboptimal, but could work.

    Would you like to have the exclusion on folder name or on Tag Value?

    if you use a specific button for feeding the music, i think you could use Genre != 'Podcast'

    Hi
    I don't really mind to be honest. If it wasn't too hard could yo make all the variable from the tags available like %genre% or %artist% along with the folder name - that would be brilliant. That way I could exclude my kids music by artists as well.

    Cheers and thanks for providing the plugin in the first place, its appreciated.

    If you are looking at the plugin again, have a quick glance over random tracks with tag > 1 star. It will often create a list with the same track more than once in the random playlist.
