Modification to "Play Next" behavior

New postby ScanAmerica on Fri Mar 20, 2009 4:48 pm

I'm wondering if the behavior of the "Play Next" menu item could be modified slightly.

If I've listened to part of an episode of a podcast and I select "Play Next" from the playlist area, I would like for PT to begin playing the next item in the playlist and take the episode I was previously listening to and place it back in the playlist in it's appropriate spot based on the playback priority for the podcast it's associated with.

I listen to a particular daily podcast every day on my drive home, when I drive to work (and during lunch) I listen to other podcasts PT has downloaded which are released on a weekly basis. Every time a new episode of the daily podcast is released, I always listen to it whether or not I'm currently in the middle of an episode of another podcast. Once I've finished listening to the new episode from the daily podcast, I go back to listening to downloaded weekly podcasts starting with the one I was listening to before the most recent episode of the daily podcast was available. Right now, after I finish listening to the latest episode from the daily podcast, I must rebuild the playlist so that the partially listened to episode is back in the playlist.

Thanks,
Gordon

Hey Gordon, I'll think about how I should implement that (probably an option somewhere) and try it get it in in the next release or so.

Great, thanks!

If possible, it would also be nice if, when you listen to an episode of a podcast which isn't on the playlist, if it would take the episode currently in the "Currently Playing" area and put it back on the playlist.

Thanks,

Hi Gordon,

I added a 'Play next (requeue)' option that should do this for 1.8.6.

I don't think "Play Next (reQueue)" is working 100%. Today, with an episode partially listened to in the Currently Playing area, I selected "Play next (reQueue)" to listen to the episode at the top of the playlist, when I did this the partially listened to episode was not placed back into the playlist. I checked the entire playlist to make sure it wasn't added in the wrong spot.

Hmm, thanks. I'll have to yell at my QA department on that one ;)

I'll get it fixed in the next release.

FYI, the requeuing doesn't seem to be happening in 1.9.0 either when I select "Play Next (reQueue)" to play the next item in the playlist, the item that was in currently playing isn't added back to the playlist anywhere.

Thanks,

Crap, thanks. I somehow missed putting that one on the list. I'll get it fixed for the full release.
