Playback Using the Playlist
With the playlist you can arrange media files and let them play consecutively. For example the media files can be listed and played back in different orders. To do so, select playlist in the DVBViewer menu and then show playlist.
Here you can:
add Files: Open the context-menu with a right-click in the window and select add file. Now another window opens, in which you can select the file(s). Alternatively you can simply open the windows explorer in order to drag and drop the wanted files. The playlist can also cope with directories.
New files are generally inserted directly behind the last marked entry. That means you can choose the inserting-position by marking a file.
You can remove a marked entry by selecting the corresponding command in the context menu or by pressing the [delete] key. The clear all button empties the entire list after a safety query.
You may re-sort the entries via drag & drop. Simply move the file to the desired position. Alternatively you can use the keyboard: The combinations of keys [Shift]+[¸] and [Shift]+[¶] move the marked entry a position up or down, [Shift]+[Pos1] and [Shift]+[End] move it to the start or the end of the list
With the search function you can jump to the next file fitting the search criteria.
The whole list can be saved to a text-file by clicking the export button, which contains the file paths and names. The import button allows you to load such a list, but be careful, all previous entries are deleted. If you want to combine two or more list you have to select add playlist in the context menu.
Play item in the context menu starts the playback of the playlist with the marked entry. Alternatively you can also start with any file by double-clicking it.
Normally the files are played one after another downwards. Reaching the last file the DVBViewer starts over from the beginning. You can choose different ways via the playlist sub-menu:
First Item and Last Item start the playback of the file at the appropriate position; the playing direction is forward.
Next Item starts the playback of the file directly following the one being played. The playing direction is forward.
Previous Item jumps to the file preceding the one being played. The playing direction thereafter is backwards. This functions is not advised to be used with DVBViewer versions before 1.99 R4.
Random Item starts the playback of a randomly chosen file. Now all files are being played in random order.
Like all settings the current playlist is stored in the setup.xml-file automatically.
