    Hello everybody

    Since I've got a pretty big music collection it takes quite a bit of time to scroll through all the albums when using cover flow.
    Coming from the mce I know how they handle this and I think this would be a nice improvement for the mp music library.
    When you scroll longer than x seconds through your music collection mce will shift into "fast forward scrolling" and will only show
    the initial letters of your library in alphabetical order. This way it saves much time to scroll to an album that starts with
    lets say M and beyond that it is an eye-catcher as well.
    Mce users will know what mean and maybe you find something at youtube (I did not unfortunately).
    What do you think?

    Some skins already do this, MP is capable of displaying such a letter (e.g. my preferred skin AValon has this feature).

    Ehm - I just started thinking: Does it do this in Coverflow as well? Not sure - will test later.

    Hey that's good news.
    I'm using streamedmp and maybe the skin team could be assured of implementing this feature into streamedmp..

    Hmm, it shows the letters only in list view. I will see if I can change that (for AValon).

    I just checked the functionality and it seems it is only implemented for listview, not for cover flow, nor for icon and filmstrip views. I must say this could be improved (esp. coverflow & filmstrip would benefit a lot).

    So from my side:
    +1 for the feature request (since the basics are there, it should not be TOO hard, I hope)

    Especially as it takes the most time to browse through your collection in cover-flow view so it could really save time...

    btw: thanks for your effort checking this...
