Title: Chaining playlists together
Post by: fredex on November 18, 2017, 03:27:15 PM
Sometimes I want to have a playlist that invokes other playlists. Like, e.g., when I have a series of books that flow naturally from one to the next.

I want each book/album/CD/whatever to have its own list, but I also want to be able to play thru the group without having to stop in the middle and find the next playlist. The obvious method is to just dump all the files into one playlist, but that seems inelegant...

Not expecting it to work, I tried making a playlist file that named two playlists then invoked it as if it were a playlist, hoping it would go grab those two playlists and play them, but I wasn't too surprised when it didn't work.

Is there some method for doing that that I haven't thought of, or would it be a new feature?

If the latter, please consider this to be a feature request.

thanks in advance!
