  • Idea for Media Engine

    How hard would it be to include a "favorites feature" for music. Kind of like how you can "bookmark" music in Winamp. I like this since i have 6000+ songs and maybe i would like to have a favorites list which can be easily edited. This would also be perfect for making a list of the latest and greatest new songs too. I think this would be something that could make this program excel big time! Anyone else with me?

    I like it, if I get what you're meaning

    Say you're listening to songs at random, then say "Hey, I'd like to add that to my favorites list", so you click a button and add it to the favorites playlist ?

      Stop requesting more features. You're just delaying the release of 2.0!!!!

        That seems like a good idea but wouldnt it be better just to add a function like Winamp 2.x where you press "j" and it comes up with the search window? You could have a sliding window with a keyboard on it.

          Search would be nice, bit no, I don't think this feature would come near to the functionality that this would bring

            what are the odds this will make it in Media Engine??

            I think this feature will benefit tons of users. Kind of a Media Engine only. Even though winamp has the bookmark feature, which is kind of like it.

            If you put this in there, consider me a lifetime user, and your personal slave too. hehe.

              In the program I am working on, I have implemented something similar to the methods used in Apple's iTunes, and on their iPod software. Basically it allows you to rate a song from 1 to 5. So if you hear a song that you really like, then you can bump the rating up to 5 stars, if it is decent then you can give it 3 or 4. This allows you to quickly play all of your favorite songs by telling the program what caliber songs to play. The way I use it is to give all of my new songs a 5 star rating, then my favorites a 3 or a 4. So if I want to listen to only the new stuff, I select the 5 star playlist, if I want to listen to my all around favorites, I select the 3 or 4 star playlist, which will also play the 5 star songs too.

                    seperate them into different directories. ME will not be made into bloatware. Meaning 100 different on screen options for something as simple as just using directories to seperate vids

                      the random . shuffle function is for use when playing music videos. instead of playing mp3s, i play music videos. and shuffle is necessary so that it doesnt play in order every time i open it.

                        yes there is no shuffle option for videos yet in 2.0. Go on the website and send the developers some email. I'll bring it up to carcomp
