No, because you can't search. I want to be able to search for tag data (99.9% of the plugins I've seen cannot accuratly retreive tag data from PSFs, let alone SPCs.) and have the results not only come up in PL number order, but also display the PL # so that I know where the song is in my playlist. All that plugin does is allow you to jump to PL#. It doesn't do anything else. It doesn't display information pertaining to that file, it doesn't search for the file by file name, path, or tag data. That is a plugin I like, but it serves my purposes very poorly. If JTFe displayed PL #s, then JTT would be great, in conjunction with JTFe that displayed, and arranged, by PL #. But it doesn't do that. See the difference in what I'm asking? Thanks for the suggestion though. I appreciate the help. Mouser X over and out.

I like the idea. The problem I have with it is that I have to expand the sidecar thingo (where all the playlists get listed) so much to display the playlists, that there isn't much space for the songs themselves. Yeah yeah, I could just make the whole thing wider, but I like to keep it at the same width as the main Winamp window.

Might I suggest you include both the sidecar and an alternative Winamp window like this plugin (which doesn't even work with Winamp 5 ). The user could choose which one they'd like to use within the plugin options.

One feature i would love to see in this plugin when it gets beyond the "concept" stage, is to freely select what id3 fields to include in the playlist display and sort them (like the tabs you see in the ML)

Right now im using the custom title format and a fixed width font to make my playlist realy easy to browse thorugh and to display albums and stuff directly above eachother (absolute must when dealing with compilations)

But with the custom title like that it also displays the custom format in the main winamp windows (in other words with lots of padding and stuff)

All i want is a way to make a playlist with all my mp3's realy easy to read.

Phear the headbanging llama!!!

Need to read all these posts properly and comment but quickly...

Insolent: you can change the orientation of the area so the playlist part can be the full width of the window and the sidecar part can be above or below the area. option is in the preview's prefs page

Dipso: the aim for the display is to allow it to be customisable as needed ie different colours, fields, etc (yes it's a bit fb2k like but hey )

real work is stealing all my time since i'm not in a fulltime job i have to take any work going, sux2bme

like with the jtfe features, i'm trying to plan things out now so that i know what i need to code etc without jumping in which will mean that once i've got jobs n stuff sorted i can get on with the key coding. as things are i'm giving jtfe the next week to be sorted then plex all the way for a while i think

electricmime: so true but no one will do it (kekeke)

development _will_ start on monday irrespective of the state of jtfe. so i _may_ get a preview 4 out to test the new code by the end of the week or early the week after.

the main aim is for the test version to handle any playlist loading, etc since it's not fully scalable/update-able at the moment and to integrate in the fixed skinning code from the current internal jtfe (will be nice )

i've had virtually no time for any coding/time to post on the forums for the last two weeks (after a 9am-9pm day and then doing everything else i have to do i've had maybe 30 minutes coding time a day and so no forum posts for a while - this is the only one for the time being) so things are going very very slowly at the moment on all plugins

Plague: need to do some more on the bar but functionally it's a better than it was (still changing it to be more wa3 like )

shins: looks good, just now need to make it fully functional since the code it relies on to load playlists isn't 100%... yet (need to finish zip reading stuff and a few wierd crash bugs)

David_Aames: it's not really functional at the moment since i'm re-coding all of the playlist display, etc which was very slow before but now it's nice n fast on my old machine

whiteflip: i doubt it since it will need alot of work to be worthy of that if it ever happened. plex is more a pet project for me and something that maybe was started sooner than it should have been but hey, it's getting there slowly (at last)

d3x7r0: hehe

there's no date as yet since i want to make preview 4 a 0.1 pre-release version to see what is or isn't working since preview 4 will not be fully linked into the current winamp playlist since that's planned for 0.1

That would be awesome . Theres alot of cool things people could do with the side bar if it was plugin compatible, like a nifty lyrics plugin.

it's always been planned for plex to have some sort of sidecar plugin system (like the media library has) but that's still some way off (and now back to the coding )

That would be sweet inthegray, that way when we're DJing we could now which tracks had already been played without having to take them off the list. Would be a cool feature (it would be even cooler if the shuffle logic did that )

one feature I really liked a lot about Winamp 3 was the PL and the abiities it had, and knowing it's gonna be a finished plugin is leaving me drooling with anticipation (if that can actually happen )

DrO do you actualy think people should do these things? Come on I would be ashamed to do this things to people, teasing them, how low can one get!

Ok come to think of it, I wouldn't be ashamed and I would also do it...

Anyway: OMG GIVE US A BREAK DrO (or give us a release he he )
