it would be great if there was a button, "back to the beginning of the track", or/and a key combination like
ctrl+home or something, anything...

people like to get back to the beginning of tracks often...
not only when practising music-- also when someone interrupts them by a phone call or anything...
to get back to the beginning of a track is a cool feature... in my opinion

Enter/Ctrl+Enter does that, no?

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

Double-clicking on the track in the playlist will do the same, as well.

Closing since this feature already exists.

I think this could be reopened because there is no way to do that from the cli and many people use the cli interface to configure bindings in their window managers. Besides it's by far the typical behavior of "previous track" (I have yet to see another player that behaves the same than audacious in this regard). I will open another issue for that specific request since I don't seem to be able to reopen this one.

Btw, my suggestion is to add a configuration toggle that makes "previous track" go to the beginning of the current track as usual (except when the current track has been playing for less than a few seconds).
