Manual and automatic queue of tracks

 

New play queue handling. The play queue handling now works similar to Neon, which means that manual and automatically queued tracks are supported. Manually queued tracks are marked with a dot on the left of the track in the play queue. These tracks will be retained even if you double-click in any tracklist.

 

I added a whole album manually, but only the last track showed a dot.

Somehow i can't find the auto enqueue options? Maybe i misunderstand this queue handling.

It just stops after the last track.

There is currently an unfortunate mixing of terms in Neon and Streamer 3. We have added the new concept of manually queued tracks (which is marked by the dot to the left of the track in the play queue). 


Tracks will be marked as manually queued for an entire album if you select and Play, Queue next or Queue last options from the menu on an album thumbnail. Tracks will also be marked as manually queued if you right click them and select Queue next or Queue last.


If you double click a track, the track that is being clicked is marked as manually queued but the rest of the tracks are marked as auto-enqueued (not to be confused with the auto enqueue feature. This is where we need to find a better name to be able to distinguish between these entirely different concepts). There is no auto enqueue feature implemented in Streamer (a feature that will automatically queue tracks for you when the play queue comes to an end).


The manually queued feature is there to preserve tracks that the user have selected explicitly to play, and to separate these from implicitly added tracks (such as tracks that comes after a double clicked track). Tracks selected as manually queued are only marked as manually queued until they have been played (or skipped past). That's why they disappear if you double-click on the last track.

Update: The dots are shown correctly when i add the whole album, but disappear after double click on the last track.
