View Full Version : Media Library: display other fields
29th October 2003, 05:53
I organize my collection with the comment, artist and title fields but the ML does not display comment and also display other unwanted fields(to me).
My collection is an anime song collection and the comment field holds the title of the anime where the song comes from.
My playlist format: %comment%: %artist% - %title%
The comment field is important to me.
I wish that the displayed fields in the ML can be changed, reordered and removed. I would also want the ML to count the songs by comments instead of artist and albums.

Change the order of or remove the fields are displayed in the ML

Make sure it includes the adding of fields and the ability to count the tracks by the comment.

You're not alone, for me it is also important to see a comment collum that can be sorted in lib... good suggestion.

What ever happend to the "pull-down" style menus in the media library, I am refering to the winamp3 style ML. I liked that you could pull down a menu and select what that pane displayed. If that could be implemented that would be sweet

+1 from me,
I find the winamp 3 style of media library very intuitive.
being able to select the field displayed in each pane is a powerful way to quickly search your media library.
Select an album of genre rock, or select an album of artist pink floyd, or select an artist of genre folk. Very fast to find what you want, whatever you're looking for.

thats why i miss it so much

this is the ONLY thing keeping me on iTunes (genre pane in artist/album).
+1000 from me.
Perhaps we should retitle the thread (or make a new one) to get the mods' attention?

Right click on columns header -> customize columns
Options to add/remove & move columns (including genre)
14th November 2003, 04:39
that option does not appear for me in wa5b2. Where exactly do I click? In artist/album view, right click only gives me play selection, enqueue selection, and send to.

It's not in Beta2, it will be in final.
14th November 2003, 05:47
...and the "customize columns" option will be available via right clicking on the column header (ie. the gray bar thingy along the top of the media view, bottom pane, where it says: artist, title, album, length, etc etc).
Other optional columns:
genre, filesize, track #, year, playcount, rating, bitrate, filename, comment, plus others, plus the option to move up/down . . .

10-4... is this already in internal versions (e.g. will I see it in the next beta), or is it just planned?
14th November 2003, 05:51
Its been in since Beta3, which was not publically released. There won't be another Beta though, final is due out next week (hopefully).
14th November 2003, 05:52
Yes! (I think you missed my previous reply before posting yours).
btw, I doubt if there will be another public beta.
Internally, we're currently on beta 4 build 5.
There might be a couple of release candidates, then it's going final.
T minus 6
doh! sawg beat me to it . . . again, lol
14th November 2003, 05:53
ah, i see. too much posting, too fast. :)
thanks for your help!

cheers guys, great feature.
Any chance of getting access to one of these betas to check the functionality? Or are these internal betas strictly internal?
Looking forward to 5 final. This is the one feature making me stick to Winamp 3.
14th November 2003, 06:05
Awww, I was hoping for more betas. but if it is comming out in the next week or so. Then its worth the wait.
for the good work Nulsoft and the Forum mods.

I notice that this is not in the latest RC (666). Status update, anyone who knows?
17th December 2003, 00:43
This is in Winamp 5 Full... In the Media Library, right click on any column header and choose "Customize columns..."
17th December 2003, 03:10
Alas, this is not the feature I was looking for. I want artist/album view to be genre/artist/album view, like in iTunes. Or, as in the winamp3 ML, to be able to dynamically assign drill-down categories.
