Magic folder that automatically adds files to the playlist

For file playback, have a monitored folder where any time something new is added it's added to a playlist.

Great. I was just going to ask for the same feature.

Comes in really handy for audiobooks. I'd like to have a folder where I can just drop stuff which then gets added to the end of the playlist.

I like this feature request, but in order for it to be effective there probably needs to be some way to associate the magic folder(s) with specific playlists (as opposed to just going to the default playlist). For example if I have two folders call "Moby Dick" and "Headbanger's Ball", I might want the ability to for the content in each folder to go seperate playlists. Perhaps the easiest way to implement this would be to have something on the "Browse Folders" interface ask the user if they want to automatically add the content to a playlist. If they say yes, then the interface should provide the list of existing playlists along with an option to add a new one.

In browsing all the feature requests I noticed another requested feature "Podcast settings to sd folder links". My guess is that if this is implemented it would give the same functionality. It's not clear if that is more difficult or not though!
