clear existing cache and force kill / restart Symfonium
Another example is offline cache, where I see people have different requirements.
My personal use case is caching all favourites (artist, album & track) from my Jellyfin server.
To achieve this I’ve created a smart playlist in Symfonium, “Add to offline cache” and “Enable auto offline cache”. Works beautifully.
It may also assist users to list any known issues with providers. You mentioned that there’s a Jellyfin bug where the bitrate is ignored. Strangely, I haven’t noticed this myself. Lucky for me it’s all 256kbps as per the Symfonium setting.
What do you think? I want Symfonium to be a success because it is clearly the best Android player out there.
Your first example is a wrong example it’s a miss in the code and already fixed for next release
For the rest there’s many different ways to achieve things, like for cache all favorites there’s directly an option auto cache favorites You don’t even need the smart playlist.
With that said yes more docs and more use cases are good, but this is time consuming, I guess I can add a Tips & tricks section on the forum for that purpose like I did on Yatse forum.
But this never really take off.
Most users just expect to “turn on replay gain” but Symfonium requires a little more context - is the user streaming or caching for example? Your results will vary depending on your answer.
To be honest, the “cache all favorites” never worked for me, so that’s why I went down my path with a smart playlist sync. Using the “cache all favorites” still requires a smart playlist to play them together (I think?).
I agree - the power of Symfonium is there are many ways to achieve the same goal.
