    Playback question

    Sorry, another question for the forum.

    The audio/video player will loop playback once finished playing the files in the list, even if I have not set it to loop. Can I stop this and only have it play to the end of the list and stop?

    Also, if I set my added apps to play on desktop, when DriveLine minimizes whatever I have playing still plays. Can I change any settings or set it up to pause audio/video on minimize, so that when my apps open on the desktop the player stops and I can then resume it again when I return to Driveline?

    For the looping I would think that would be a setting in WMP. Could be wrong. For the other problem I think Clockwork needs to answer that one. SNO

    It's designed to always loop at the end of the playlist. The 'repeat' button is for repeating a single file from the playlist. A Skin Config option could possibly be added to enable/disable the automatic repeating of the playlist. Not sure I understand why though. I mean, if the user doesn't want to hear it anymore, they can pause or clear the playlist.

    Same for automatically pausing/muting when minimizing DriveLine -- an option could be added to the Skin Config settings. Not sure if it should auto-resume or not though.. Also, maybe this should be a per-app setting...

    Clockwork,

    The reason why I asked about the looping is that when only loading 1 or two items into the playlist (especially when short in duration), it can get a bit annoying when it loops back to the start so quickly (not so much if you have a good few items loaded up).

    In regards to the pause/mute when minimizing, if a per app setting could be written that would be great. The reason why I asked about this in the first place is that I have some apps that have their own sound and I didn't want the music/video coming out at the same time. A setting written in would be more user friendly than having to pause the music each time before you go into the app.

    Not sure about auto-resume either. I guess if it was easy enough then maybe a setting could be written in to allow the user to choose what happens when maximizing DriveLine again (either auto-resume or user controlled resume via the pause button).

    Is there any development on whether a media pause option can be added for when opening apps?

    I have tried to play about with the apps xml's to include a line to make the media player pause on mouseup when selecting an app, but am not having any luck

    Yes. It's already done. It will be included in the next version. Probably sometime in the next few days.

    Oh brilliant. I can stop trying to convince myself that I'm clever enough to fully understand the coding and command lines :-)
