Some small ideas for next version

Some small Winamp ideas (potentially doable?) for next version
(there are a lot of other things thet could be improved, but I know time is limited and resources even more, so..)


Difficulty Level 1?

01 Add option in ML views (or in right click): Add after current (playing item) (to PL). Similar to "queue" but more consistent with the order of a builded playlist.

02 Add options on PL tracks: "All tracks by this artist" / "All tracks from this album". Similar to "Explore item(s) folder" but without leaving Winamp.

i.e.: This would be the result of selecting "all tracks by this artist" (it would re-use the Library view):



03 "Prev" and "Next" buttons on CT Preferences window:




04 Full suppport for transparent PNG in covers? (shows up fine in the Tag editor but loads wrongly in skin).





Difficulty Level 2?

05 Option to remove time from playlist (cleaner, minimalist, potentially loved by modern users). And possibly the Scrolling bar can auto-hide. Yeah, I know, all of it could be strange but maybe... look!:

No time - No scrollbar


Minimalist skin + Minimal PL:


06 Alternate background on PL:
(done with default Bento colors so it could be hard to see if your monitor is not properly set up)





Difficulty Level 3?

07 "treat TRACKS as albums" -> To have smart views (or even playlist views) where each song has its artwork and details visible, or to have it displayed like little artworks.. (like the "Small / medium / large icons" view of the library).

Ugly mockup (you get the idea): Click image for larger version
