Folder View

Hello,

I like the default Library view which organizes my collections according to artist, albums. etc. However because I organize my collection physically in folders, I would like to be able to view the Library as such. So that it will be easier for me to see what songs i have in a folder and from that folder I can select whatever songs I want to the play queue.

I have tried the Smart View but I cant get it to work.

Please advise how to do this. Thanks.

create a smartview that says something like:

"filename" "begins with" <filepath>

thats expected. winamp doesn't natively browse the explorer tree. but the smartview can be made to show bits and pieces of the tree via tags in the ML DB.
