Does yet mean that it might happen in the future?

I do like the ability to move tracks. I was just curious about sorting and whether it was something that might be there but not skinned, etc...

I wonder if it would be possible to add a feature for sorting a playlist such as Winamp has (e.g. by filename, title, reverse list, random, etc). Is there a feature for this that can be skinned already?

Thanks,

Erik

I made a couple of tests. It seems (at least on my computer) that if I install Winamp and then install Browseamp, I get stuck with the Winamp agent in the system tray, even if I have it turned off. If I leave Browseamp installed, uninstall Winamp and then reinstall it (thus having Browseamp installed 'first') the Winamp agent does not show up. I did this a few times just to be sure I wasn't going crazy and that I wasn't overlooking something.

Perhaps it is a unique aspect of my computer or O.S. or other setups. I don't know. It isn't a big deal. I mostly just thought it would be cool if Winamp started when I typed in the ip address. Fortunately, I am just testing this out right now at work while I wait to get everything setup in my new Apt.

Thanks for your help. It is very few programs that offer support as you do. I only hope to support you with a donation in the near future. You deserve something for making perhaps the best program/plugin of its type.

That's how I did it originally, and how I've always done it for each version of Winamp I've ever used. I even completely removed it once, installed Winamp and then installed Browseamp. I've not tried uninstalling winamp and then reinstalling it with Browseamp left in place. Perhaps that would solve my problem.

There still seems to be some quirk, perhaps Winamp itself, or just some unknown combination of items. I'll try what I just suggested and see what happens.

I only ask because according to my Winamp configuration, the Winamp agent is not supposed to be on or in the system tray. This is the case when I uninstall Browseamp and before I installed it in the first place.

However, with browseamp installed, the Winamp Agent is on, whether I like it or not. The preferences show it off, but it is still there.  I can manually turn it off, but that would quickly get annoying.

Since it only appears when the Browseamp plugin is installed, I assumed that perhaps it was purposely done for the reason I originally asked about. If not, there is something in browseamp, whether you know of it or not, that makes the Winamp agent show up in the system tray.

Generally, I try to keep my system tray empty because it usually means a lot of needless RAM being used (when it goes unchecked and there are lots of things there). One program doesn't bother me, but it is something you should be aware of. I am running Winamp 5.04. I am not sure if that makes a difference.

It is still a fun program, and I appreciate all the features you do have in it. I wish I was a good programmer, but alas I'm not. Maybe in the future.

I am new to Browseamp and love what it can do. I notice that when I install the program it puts Winamp (the winamp agent) in the system tray even though that feature is not enabled in Winamp's preferences. I assumed this was the case so that if someone typed in the appropriate hyperlink, winamp would start up and start playing.

In my own experience, I find that the browser returns a connection refused message unless I physically start Winamp on the host computer. Is it supposed to be this way? It would be nice to not have to think about starting winamp on the host computer if this is the case, especially if I forget to start Winamp.

Perhaps I am doing something wrong. Once I start winamp I know the server is going. Perhaps the server itself isn't started unless winamp is running? Is there a solution?

Thanks... By the way, as it is, this is an excellent program. I think a nice improvement would be to add more drag and drop ability to the playlist features, though I understand if it is limited by the ability of html and the web broswer.
