Option for stop after actual song

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I often need a stop after the song which is played. E.g. when playing music for teaching dances, the next song should not start. So it would be nice to be able to configure the player that it stops after the selected and started song. This could be integrated in the menu where I can repeat the song or playlist.

Thanks a lot

Uwe

"+1": what does this mean?

It's shorthand for "I agree too, but can't be bothered to write it out in detail..." :):)

A bit like people who just post "F" to follow a thread on Facebook or forums, rather than adding any actual content. 

Oh, and "+1" from me too for what it's worth. This feature has been requested for about 7 years now, but has not yet been actioned as yet, maybe Max will get around to it in some forthcoming release?

Dear Andre, thank you for the explanation. 7 years is a long time...hopefully they will implement such a feature. It is essential for me.

Best regards

Uwe

The method I had suggested (and which Max said he hoped to be able to implement at the time) was only a minor tweak to the Repeat button options (and terminology) to make it generally more logical and easier to understand. Especially as the term 'Advance List' is still a regular source of confusion for new users. This would give the simple but flexible ability to PLAY or REPEAT by either SONG, CATEGORY or ALL, thus:

Play One Song (stop at end of current song, ready in place to play the next song) [NEW]
Play Current Category (stop at end of the current Category/List, ready in place to start playing the next Category) [currently called REPEAT OFF]
Play All Categories (stop when finished playing all Categories/Lists, ready in place to start again at the beginning).[NEW. This should probably be the default mode for new installations, rather than playing forever]
Repeat One Song [currently called REPEAT SONG]
Repeat Current Category [currently called REPEAT LIST]
Repeat All Categories (play all Categories/Lists, then start again from the beginning, repeating forever) [currently called ADVANCE LIST]

For the old term 'List', I've now substituted the word 'Category' in order to keep it more in line with v3 terminology (which was implemented because there was an element of user-confusion between the generic term 'list', and the more specific definition of 'Playlist').

Anyway, hopefully @maxmp might get a chance to revisit and tweak this sometime sooner than the next seven years. :) :)

Dear Andre,

I like your suggestion. I think this would include all possibilities. When I want to repeat one album I must select "repeat current category", right?

Thanks,

Uwe

Correct, that is available in the current Repeat modes already. It's still called 'Repeat List', as the repeat icon wording mostly still uses the old terminology.
