DEFAULT ADDING TO QUEUE

Postby ianpaulstone » Sat May 23 2020 20:46

Hi There

I had a party recently and had lots of people round (pre-lockdown)

teaching them to use the Jukebox with Volumio took a while. In particular, all I wanted them to be able to do was click on the song and have it add to the queue as a default.

I'm wondering, why is this not an option in Volumio's functionality? And how can I adapt the code to make it happen?

There are a couple of online tutorials that claim to have made it happen but I can't find the folder - http://www.markwheeler.com/wordpress/?p=519 for instance - but I can't find the /src/app/browse/browse.controller.js folder to make the change happen.

Can someone please help? It would be how I want my jukebox to work!

thanks

Ian

This "hack" was done 3 years ago. I assume the code has changed since then so that this folder isn't there anymore.

How Volumio should behave when clicking on an song is controversial.
This will soon be configurable -> https://forum.volumio.org/773-track-selection-t14719.html

If I remember correctly others have already asked for a "Jukebox-Mode". So there could be a third option ...

Yes, please let there be a third option ... where do I have to sign

I only use Volumio for a few months so far, but I would have loved to have such a Party/Jukebox-Mode from the start.
I tried moOde in the beginning. At moOde, I have at least a selection menu popping up, when clicking on a track, asking what should happen with the track.
I just liked volumio better from the UI and handling, except for the immediate play. But for a party the behavior of Volumio is actually impractical.
Especially as the evening progresses.... ;)

If this option were available, I would also use it. Sometimes I like to listen to just a few songs of an album or a playlist. I do this by adding the entire album or playlist and then removing the unwanted songs from the queue. The "Jukebox-Mode" would make that easier.

In addition, this would also be a workaround for the "select multiple tracks at once" feature that some users want.
