I’ve been grappling with the problem of chaining multiple items is Assist mode - and then stumbled across some forum posts about the Link column. I promptly tweaked skin.ini to reveal it, as I’d hidden it in my quest for screen space. Prayers answered, much desperate code now archived! [Suggesting - Links should be mentioned in the next release]
Link(ing) does exactly what we want, but raises two queries :-
Shouldn’t it be suppressed in Automation, where it seems redundant?
How would one deal with Links via scripting? In the help CHM I’ve found :-
TPlaylistItemStatusFlag = ( pisfInLinkChain , pisfLinkSlave , pisfLinkSlavePadded , pisfError , pisfPrebufferError , pisfFixedStart , pisfFixedStartWait , pisfOverflow , pisfWasStarted , pisfPrebuffering , pisfRealtime ) ;
Is it just a matter of setting the flags as above? I noticed that Links can be set/unset in the GUI “on the fly” (most impressive!), so I’d hope a script could do the same.
