Amarok 1.x Scripts by frawau 10 comments

Thank you for your comment.

Adding the "full album path" filter should not be complicated.

Currently the "album" info is extracted from the database.. and that leads to a bug I recently found when 2 albums have the same title...

With the "full album" path, the script would simply randomly select an "album" from the DB and check if it is in the right place. If not it would select another one.


Using the tracks "path" is also an easy way to solve the bug I mentioned above.

Naturally this means that the music collection is more than a directory full of files :)

On second thought...I tried the "Random -> Album" mode... And it did not behave the way I liked.

I'll use my script after all, I feel it behaves more like a dynamic playlist. - Jul 18 2006

Alright.... I always thought I would find it in one of the "dynamic playlist".

In any case, the "random artist" feature is still "new" and it could be easily extended to offer other tags (e.g. year, genre, ....)

Anyway, I learned how to write a script for amaok.... Not a total loss.. for me :) - Jul 18 2006
