Affects version:3.7.2


Currently when running

audacious my_dir
the program adds all media contained in my_dir and all its subdirectories; the same happens in the GUI when selecting a directory with the "open" or "add" commands.

Sometimes one only wants media contained in the directory, without scanning all its subdirectories.
E.g. I sometimes by mistake run audacious on a directory which has LOTS of subdirs, sometimes even my $home: a massive scan for subdirs starts, and I can't stop it even exiting the program GUI, I have to kill -9 all the audacious processes. You can think of other use cases.

Please add a configuration option to enable/disable recursion into subdirectories.

(audacious 3.7.2 on Linux)

#1 Updated by Jim Turner 4 months ago

Will this do for starters?

Added boolean config option [audacious].no_subdirs that if set to TRUE stops recursive addition of subdirectories, along with gui checkbox in [Settings].[Playlist] for gtk & qt. FALSE || undef: keep current behavior.
