#8178 new bug

MediaPlayer: change the behavior of autoplay and of loop

Reported by: Giova84 Owned by: stippi
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/MediaPlayer Version: R1/Development
Keywords: mediaplayer loop autostart behavior previous file Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


When i start MediaPlayer is played the last played file: that's because MediaPlayer's option "automatically start playing" remember the last played file. This could be annoying. eg: the last played file could be present on an external disk, and if this disk is not mounted/present, MediaPlayer give an error. And again: if i use YAVTD for Youtube playing, and if MediaPlayer has the option "automatically start playing", on start, i listen the previous played file, not the new media file by YAVTD! And again: listen the previous played file could be simply annoying. So: the autostart option should be only on new clicked files (as every Media Players do), and not should remember the last played file. And in my humble opinion, the loop option should combine audio and video togheter.

I set this ticket as enhancement because i like MediaPlayer!

hrev44240: Still occurs: when i open MediaPlayer, it try to open the last played file (for example on a not mounted disk) and appears the same error message:

~ The file " could not be opened. Error: General system error ~

And i have noticed that if i delete the file "MediaPlayer Current Playlist" located inside /boot/home/config/settings, this error no longer appears. I think that this file could be permanently removed.

Mediaplayer still opens the last audio file, but not video file. Even if the last file was a video, the media player will still only open an audio file.

I'm in agreement with Giova84. The autoplay feature can be an annoyance if the last file played causes a crash, or has been moved or deleted.
