First off let me say what a great job your doing with the scripts, i really love the Previewer but i have noticed a small problem i had. If your Now Playing list is set to remember few previously played tracks than the play list contains, when you stop previewing and flip back to what you were listening to only the last x number of songs show. For example i was listening to the start of a play list containing 25 songs with my MediaMonkey set to remember 5 previously played songs. When i went to preview a song and came back to my play list only the last 5 tracks of my play list were in the now playing list. Whilst this isn't really a big issue as i have just increased the memory of my now playing list, i thought i would bring it to your attention.

thanks again for some brilliant scripts!

This is not normal behaviour unless you use Auto-DJ. By default MM keeps all played tracks in NowPlaying list.

Yeah, unfortunately there's nothing I can do about that because the whole point of the script is that it doesn't affect the Now Playing list.

Dont know if this has already been suggested bcz i didnt have time to read through the post but is there an option to add the track your previewing to the now playing list and continue playing the track?

Also i think this is a great script, i mean all of trixmotos scripts are really nice arent they :wink:

PS: I also think he is the best script writer out there :D just saying....

Awesome script! (It works nice for substituting for commercials in streaming broadcasts/urls)!

I wanted to ask if after the previewed track ended, should the original playing track in the playlist play if that is a stream/url (like it does with mp3s)? In other words, when I'm listening to a podcast/stream and I click a library track to preview, once that track finishes, the interrupted podcast in the playlist reappears in the player but it doesn't restart/play. At least it doesn't for me presently and it sure would be nice if it did. :wink:

Thanks------- :)

I've never tested with a stream, but I'll try to get these behaving as expected in the next version.

I don't understand how this is supposed to work. I have several songs in my now playing list. I find a song in my library, double click on it, and all it does is add the song to the end of my now playing list. What is supposed to happen?

The script is triggered from "Tools > Scripts > Previewer", or possibly from a button on the toolbar if I remember correctly, it doesn't change the double-click behaviour.

Originally, I had gone to'Tools > Scripts > Previewer' and nothing at all happened. However, when I did it again a couple of hours later, a box popped up, and it was then pretty easy to figure out. But before the box popped up, it made no sense to me what was supposed to be happening. Maybe it just needed to be restarted again or something. Anyway, it seems like a nice little script, but unless there's some kind of button for easy access, it's too tedious getting to it to make it worthwhile in my opinion.

If you open "Scripts\Auto\Previewer-Auto.vbs" in a text editor you'll find a couple of lines at the top...

Code: Select all

Dim ShowToolbar : ShowToolbar = False
Dim ShowContext : ShowContext = False
Setting one or both of these to "True" will add a toolbar button and a context menu.

Re: Previewer 2.8 - Updated 03/05/2010

Post by trixmoto » Mon May 03, 2010 2:57 pm

New version (2.8.) is now available to download from my website. Changes include...

- Added buttons to "play now" and "play next"
- Fixed trying to restore stream position - not possible

Unfortunately it does not seem to be possible to restore the position of streams if it has been interrupted for a preview, so now I don't attempt to so the seek bar is at least accurate.

If there was no GUI, how would you control it, a different shortcut for each action?
