Amarok play list auto continue?


Hi all,

Suse 10 x86_64
Intel 650HT 3,4Ghz
1GB 400Mhz memory
Western Digital 160G SATA-150 x 2
All Packman packages installed and working

----------------------------------------------------

I'm having a slight problem with Amarok play lists that I can't seem to figure out. Hopefully some one here can help me.

I rip my CD collection with Grip without any trouble whatsoever in the following. /home/user/mp3

I create a playlist for each CD compilation in the following. /home/user/mp3/playlists
The playlist files are /home/user/mp3/playlists/cdtitle.m3u

----------------------------------------------------

I load a playlist and all the tracks show up like they should. I can play any individual song without issue. I can select all of the songs in a playlist and queue them. When queued, the little 1,2,3,4 tags show up like they should.

However, I cannot figure out how to set auto-continue to save my life.

I want Amarok to play each song in succession from a playlist without having to press "Windows Key + B" to continue to the next song each time a song ends.

What am I missing or doing wrong?

Thank you in advance for your comments/suggestions!

Switch audio engines. It is heavily known, and posted all over here, there is a particular audio engine which causes that issue. Switching to another one will fix the issue.

Thanks for the reply.

I hunted around but didn't see anything regarding auto continue to the next song but I'll give it a try.

I'm currently using the xine engine, any suggestions on which one might be more friendly?

Thanks

Xine isn't supposed to have that issue... It doesn't for me.

That is very odd... have you tried uninstalling all the amarok files and starting from scratch from Guru with the 1.3.6? Or at least wiping amarok and getting a whole unified set, mixing and matching the codecs with different versioned program and engine could be a cause.

Actually I used the JEM article. I added some installation sources, including Packman, and did the installation that way.

I'm pretty sure it's using the xine engine but not 100% because it's at home and I'm at work.

I'll check it later and make sure. Maybe I'll just expirement with different ones and see what happens.

Thanks for the help.

Solved

Hey RedShirt, thanks for the tip.

After checking to see exactly how my stuff was configured I could see that my amarok engine was set to Helix or some such nonsense.

I wanted to switch to the xine engine but it wasn't available in the drop down list. Searched forum, found post on amarok-xine, installed it, changed config, works!

Thanks
