The feature I would like to see most in the next version of winamp is support for multiple genres. I know this has been said before, but I'd like to say it again.
For example, I tag my mp3s like this:
Suppose I'm tagging an mp3 by DJ Rap. If I play by genre, I want her to show up for Drum & Bass as well as Electronic. I use id3-tagit, imho the best completely freeware mp3 tagger. (www.id3-tagit.de
) It allows the ID3v2.3 feature of having multiple user defined genres as well as the standard ones.
If I were doing the coding, I would make it work so that if someone sorts by genre, then the first genre in the tag gets used as the sort key, however any other genres are listed after the fisrt in a comma delimited list in the genre column. When someone searches or filters by genre, then the search should be checked against all the genres that file has.
I hope someone finds this useful, I know I'm dying for this feature. Right now my workaround is to make new views in the media library with filters that accept all the genres I want.
