Feature: File browser: Recursively 'select all subfolders' within multiple folder selection #2399
I'm using quodlibet 3.7.1. on Debian Linux 9, and some other linux variants, since 2 years because i did not like bloated players or the others lack some specific feature.
I'm using different music players on different OS nearly exclusively with their file browser since i've got a huge music file collection. The files are sorted into folders (character stations) which resemble specific moods, or other criteia, and targeted at semiprofessional DJ usage. I'm used to quickly find a file for a specific mood, or mix some 2 or 3 stations. It's even possible to let it just play random from the mix, unattendet.
The files are organized in a flat hierarchy of 2 levels. In the top level root folder, are some 100 folders for different moods / character features. (not genres).
Well there wasn't :) and so i had to click-add every one of the 50 folders manually ...
I would like to have such a mix-folders feature because, depending on the mood of the dancing people, or otherwise just my mood, i'd like to mix a composition of different moods / styles / things.
I agree that my usage is far from 'widespread' but i think a 'comfortably mix different sources into one playlist' feature would be useful to other people too.
