I’m actually not sure if this is a bug, or just not implemented yet.
When I’m browsing my folders (using the “File” menu) and play a song, I would like to see the bar at the bottom of the screen, with the play/pause button, once clicked expand to the “player” view etc.
Since I couldn’t see the media bar, I assumed anything I played from the “Files” menu was just for browsing stuff, and would not affect “library mode” stats (if I’m being clear). Then I saw my last played album changed on the home screen, so it obviously did.
Edit: looks like the Files view is very minimalist, no “Details”, “Go to artist”, “Save transcode locally” etc in the track submenu
And yes File mode is file mode, if you were browsing your files in a file explorer you would not have any of those too.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen such behaviour in an airsonic music player, and I still don’t get why you wouldn’t modify it?
DSub, Ultrasonic, even the player I use on my desktop (tauon) has a file tree view with actual media-related functionnalities…
Maybe at least add a “Transcode locally” option for File view and let us navigate on the now playing screen? I can see the player notification changed with the current track, so it wouldn’t be difficult?
