We’ve just introduced mAirList into our station and so far it’s working fantastically and we love it.
I’m absolutely, positively sure though, that the ‘browser’ should be able to display a track’s duration as it does in Windows Explorer, so that presenters can see a song’s duration before dragging it into the playlist. (And without having to check via Explorer).
I’ve set ‘resizeable panes’ in the config but it’s not the solution. Have searched and searched but can’t find the answer. In our browser within mAirList it just shows the file names. Can you advise if indeed there is a solution to this?
Also I’ve customised ‘skin.ini’ and used the layout designer to suit our station and it’s been brilliant to work with. The only other request I’ve had is to change the colour of the font in the ‘just played’ tracks in the playlist. The light grey is difficult for some of us to read. Is there any way to make the colour of this font another colour. Can’t seem to locate it in ‘skin.ini’.
Any help appreciated.
P.S.: For a community station with limited funds that until now only used WinAmp… (it’s true…!) mAirList is sensational…!
display of the duration cannot be easily set up with the third-party component I use. It also affects the performance significally. If you really need this information, I suggest you set up an on-the-fly database for each of your music folders. You can then also use the database search, and store cue data without having to tamper with ID3 tags or MMD files.
Regarding the font color, the following line in the “Playlist0” section should do the trick:
The font issue was fixed easily as you suggested, Torben.
I’ve tried both solutions suggested by each of you and am consistently amazed at the sheer configurability of the program. I’m probably leaning toward the on-the-fly database option as you described, Torben - mainly owing to the search capabilities of it. But both work and do what I’d hoped.
Well… ‘drats’. It appears the iTunes solution works… but only displays track name and duration (not artist) - although of course artists are searchable via the mAirList Database Search function.
Is it possible to display the artist using the iTunes idea?
BUT the ‘On The Fly’ idea is probably better suited for us anyway however… every time I’ve tried opening mAirList after setting up my music folder in the Configuration Tool, mAirList just hangs forever, until I ctrl+alt+del to shut down the ‘by now’ ‘not responding’ program.
On The Fly works great using a small folder of a few songs in my tests - but trying to use my folder of 1500 or so songs causes it to hang. Is there a solution to this?
Am I mad to be attempting this with one large folder as an On The Fly database?
