Stay on a playlist until I select a different one #1426

Original issue 1426 created by on 2014-07-15T04:23:14.000Z:

Quod Libet 3.0.2, Linux Mint 17

Problem three of three: (with 1424 and 1425)

When playing a song in a playlist, if I click on a different playlist there is no indication which list has the current track, 'Jump to Playing Song' doesn't jump across playlists, and, when the track ends, control switches to the first track in the second playlist.

Have Quod Libet stay on a playlist until I select a song in a different playlist.

I don't understand the enhancement here... I think it's confusing enough for users to know about the queue, and the current songlist, so having a third, magic place where songs can come from (the playlist you happened to be on when you double clicked the first song) is a step back in ease of use.

If you want to play a whole playlist you can enqueue it, otherwise I think WYSIWYG has to be the best option.

playlist browser: implement scroll to playing song. See #1426
Since a song can be in multiple playlists this cycles through all matching ones
(needs ctrl+shift+j to cycle as we don't change the selection if the
playing song is already in the active list)

Afair this is what iTunes does, queuing the list at the moment the song starts and using that as a source. I agree that this would be confusing given what QL does today... (we could of course think about switching to a different player source model, but that's another issue)

I've implemented "jump to playing song" now in 0f57b08 so at least it's possible to switch back to the source if needed
