Minor UI Tweaks

Post by colin_e » Fri Jan 02, 2009 6:21 pm

Couple of small User Interface tweaks that would be a help-
  • An "Encoding Type" column option (CBR/VBR/ABR). Bizarrely this seems to be missing currently.
  • Multi column sort. I.e. I want to be able to click once to clear the sort on all columns, then if I click (say) the Artist, Type, and Title headings have the list sorted by Artist THEN Type THEN Title.

Hold the Ctrl key while selecting second and more sort columns.

There's not a column for that information, but you can set up a node which allows you to browse based on type via the MagicNodes script.

Magic Nodes

I believe one of the build in nodes is "Format, VBR, Bitrate" which results in a three tier node allowing you to browse via the type of file, then further filter those results based on VBR/CBR, and then ended up with nodes based on the bitrate of the files. That might suit your needs, or you could alter it just to sort between VBR/CBR and not filetype.
