Media Library Sections - Save Changes?

When you open the Media Library, you have the tree structure on the left that has all the options. I have noticed that if you collapse some of those options, close WinAMP and open it again, the media library does not retain these settings.

Is there a way have certain selections expanded and certain ones collapsed by default?

have a look at the ML Lite-n plugin in this section which will allow you to preserve the collapsed state as per it was on exit.

we can blame Egg for that one (and TazDevil for making me do it for the Lite-n plugin which was then copied over to make this one ). got to love pre-emptive plugin creations, hehe

DrO. I have been asking for this functionality forever! Thanks! This is awesome. Now why isn't this native in the winamp install?

i dunno why it's not native but seeing as the main media library dll is on code freeze that's one good reason why, heh

Nice plug-in. I've many playlists in the library and it's annoying, that Winamp doesn't save the settings and I have to close the large playlist section again and again. I agree, this should be part of Winamp.

Hehe, completly agree, but this feature is a valid request, I don't expect that e.g. the "Winamp Pro" entry will be removed nativly.

heh, i had done one that does alphabetise the listing but i hadn't finished the code to remap the saved entries in one of the ini files (so that the alphabetising would hold) but with the changes made to 5.22+ it broke everything i'd intended on doing (since they moved to an xml file) so unless i get bored / nullsoft implement it natively it may still some time off...

Feature Request - Default ML Smart View

So I can use DrO's ML Lite-n plugin to remember the collapsed state of sections within the ML. Winamp by default will remember the SmartView I was on when Winamp was closed. But what if I always want a certain SmartView to be loaded upon startup?

Might I request the ability to designate a default ML SmartView?
When checked, this SmartView would always be loaded upon startup.


DrO, would this feature best be implemented as a new plugin all together
... or as an option within ML Lite-n?

Thanks for your consideration.

ML Lite-n v1.0a

DrO has released ML Lite-n v1.0a

This new release offers no new functionality or fixes other than improved
compatibility with newer versions of Winamp ... specifically unicode.

No known bugs with this plugin I don't think, just the one feature request:Thank you DrO!
