    Dumb question about media browsing.

    Ok, I've looked all around, and I saw the FAQ entry about searching and about multiple file locations, but I still have not been able to find a way to "load" a specific Genre (or other ID3 based search criteria). Is it really impossible (without adding Genre and other fields to my dir/file structure)?

    If you load your files with the winamp library, RR will show the -- Genres -- entry in the audio browser, which you can use to browse genres... then you can select an entire genre or subselect artists/albums from withing that genre into the playlist. No need to have a genre in your folder structure if you don't want to.

    Ok, I was using WinAmp 2.95 (as recommended I thought). I will load up the newest 5.x version and see how it works.

    2.95 works just fine. Just go to the library from the main menu and add the folder or folders containing your music files. It will build a database containing artist, album and genre.

    2.95 has winamp library too.. and it actually works faster than the 5.x versions.
