    I would encourage everyone to test out what they are requesting in WMP. StreetDeck utilizes WMP as it's engine. If it's possible in WMP, chances are it's possible in StreetDeck. If it's not possible in WMP, chances are it will take a lot of work to make it happen.

    Just some food for thought.

    Hi RedGTiVR6,

    Thanks for the suggestion now I know why the music search feature in StreetDeck works the way it does itís exactly the same in Windows Media player. The song can either appended to the bottom of current playlist or played immediately but it replaces the current playlist in the "Now Playing module".

    Any improvement in the "music search" or "queue" would be greatly appreciated even a grouping of letters in the playlist I.E "abc", "def", etc that could be used to move to the songs that begin to the corresponding letter.

    Thanks

    Blechh! Windows Media Player is HORRIBLE! It's appalling to think that the media player in this $200 software is nothing more than a SKIN for a terribly designed piece of software (way to go Microsoft... as usual!).

    You guys may want to consider a complete re-design and overhaul on the media functions for SD 2.0... build it from the ground up, you guys have the talent! That's likely the only way I'll spend any money on 2.0. WMP is the absolute worst app in existence for media

    I didnt want to make a new post about it but another nice addition would be "move to top" when moving music in your queue nothing is more annoying then having to hit "move up" 700 times to get it to the top of the playlist.

    Hell I have 120GB of MP3's try scrolling to the bottom of 29,000 songs every time you add a song.

    Agreed "move to top" would be a nice feature too.

    Note had some free time today an experimented with several different media players, winamp, windows media, media monkey etc. None of them has a search feature like the one we are looking for but media monkey did move to the songs that begin to the corresponding letter pressed on the keyboard.

    Even implementing grouping of letters in the playlist I.E "abc", "def", etc that could be used to move to the songs that begin to the corresponding letter, as mentioned in my previous post would greatly aid in finding music in a large playlist.
