GMPC gets QUEUE support, again
GMPC used to have this before when there was an implementation in MPD a few years back, this implementation never made it into MPD-stable, so was removed.
BUT it is back, in completely different form. You can now give a song in your playlist a higher priority, so it wil be played next. For this to work, you need a recent MPD and
GMPC+libmpd from git.
REMEMBER: Giving songs priority only works in RANDOM mode.
The QUEUE-ing works as follow: (I need to find a better name then queue-ing)
Select a song in the playlist:**
As you can see, all songs have priority -1 (aka no priority):
Now Press : “alt-q”
As you can see the priority jumped to 255, and it will be the the next song played (see sidebar).
GMPC will automatically remove the priority once the song is played:
You can also select multiple songs, and queue them. They will get a decrementing priority, this to ensure they play in the right order:
This is a first implementation, I plan to change the color of the song-icon depending on the priority and do some other GUI-updates.
