View Full Version : "Back" button for whole playlists
9th September 2004, 18:53
I noticed just now that when I e.g. click on a web-radio stream from the internet, it overwrites whatever is currently in my playlist (which I might have spent a little while composing). It would be good if whenever an 'overwrite' action like this happens on the playlist, the old one is kept and accessible via a 'back' button (you could even have back and forth buttons like a browser).
I admit this is semantically weird because normally you'd expect "back" to go back one SONG on a playlist, but hopefully the arrows could be a different shape or something...

undo(like if you add a song/move a song/overwrite, blah blah blah) is already in the official wishlist...
and i believe(though im not sure, and im too lazy to look it up) that it will be a feature in dros much anticipated extended playlist

Yup, Playlist Undo has been on the wishlist for ~5 years.
Best bet for now is to make "enqueue" the default action, or use WampEnq to make Enqueue+Play the default action (see wishlist sticky for all details).

Hi, thanks all for the replies. I was wondering about searching for this, but I didn't even know what other people would have called it (and don't have a brain-connection handy so I couldn't search this forum by "concept").
You could probably adapt the existing "playlists" section in the media library to do what I'm suggesting, by having the current playlist always be a member of that section (called <current> or something) and when an 'overwrite' happens, it generates a new playlist instead of overwriting <current>. It would probably be nice to have a small playlists pane on the playlist window so you could quickly switch between the current one and other saved ones.
Just some ideas.

this will undo any and all changes you made since you started up winamp.
