Feature request: Remember song position with playlist

Added by Netslovdlyasnov Netslovdlyasnov over 7 years ago

Hello.
Whether someone could mention this before, but it would be nice feature to remember current song position with current playlist.
it is good for listening audio books.
So you could (accidentally) close Audacious and begin listening from the position it was closed.
Or when you open another song, you can switch back to audio book playlist and continue.
Some sort of "continue" function.

please comment.

File -> Preferences -> Playlist -> Continue playback on startup.

Well, this fixes only one issue.
What about the situation, when you listen a long file, e.g. 3 hours long, and suddenly other file gets opened with audacious?
It creates new playlist and starts playing new file and forgets the position of the previous one.

To avoid this you can set enqueue as default action when double-clicking a music file.

Anyway I will lose current song position after listening another song...

tallica and I chatted about saving the song position on a per-playlist basis, and we think it would be doable for 3.3. When I have the chance I'll post some details about how we're thinking it would work and ask for comments.

Thank you. Glad to see people open for new ideas :)

Update: This feature is implemented in Git and will be present in 3.3. (3.3-alpha1 will probably be released in a week or so.)
