    FAQ: How to use the new music skin

    Music Screen:
    Sources List:

    The Six Tabs:
    Artists - Displays a list of all artists from the selected source
    Albums - Displays a list of albums from the selected source
    Tracks - Displays a list of tracks from the selected source
    Play - Clears the current playlist and then if nothing in the list is selected, plays all tracks in the given list. If an item is selected it plays only the selected item.
    Enqueue - If nothing in the list is selected, adds all tracks in the given list to the current playlist. If an item is selected it adds only the selected item.
    Playlists - Lists all playlists available on the current source along with the currently loaded playlist

    Some common tasks:
    To add a few tracks from an album to the current playlist
    1) Select a track
    2) Press the Enqueue button
    3) Repeat

    To Play all songs in you collection:
    1) Press the artists tab
    2) Press the play button

    To play a playlist off of your iPod:
    1) select the sources button
    2) click your ipod
    3) click the playlists tab
    4) click a playlist and press the play button

    To save your current playlist:
    1) Long press the current playlist
    2) Give it a name

    To add an album to the current playlist:
    1) Click the artist name (or the albums tab for all albums)
    2) Click the album to add
    3) Press the enqueue button

    To see all playlists saved in any format on your computer:
    1) Select the MyCarPC source (selected by default)
    2) Press the playlists tab

    To remove a song from the playlist:
    1) Click the playlist
    2) Long press the song to remove

    To clear the current playlist
    Anytime the play button is pressed, it sets the playlist to only the selected items (or all visible items if nothing is selected). This is the easiest way to clear the current playlist (replacing it with a new one).

    I am not sure if i am supposed to write on the FAQ post but I have a question that does not seem to be answered by the above.

    Is there a way to clear the current playlist? I added my entire collection to the current playlist and saved it, but it still remains as the current playlist. How do I start a new playlist? It would be near impossible for me to individually remove every song.

    Thanks, and for the record .8 with this media player is ridiculous. I'm hooked!

    Thanks for the quick reply, where do playlists get saved to? What format playlists does the OM media player recognize?

    Good question...playlists are saved to the internal media database..although saving them out to a playlist file is supported and will be added in a skin update in the near future.
