I'd really like support for the commands in the Playlist window's sort menu:

  • Sort list by title
  • Sort list by filename
  • Sort list by path and filename
  • Reverse list
  • Randomize list

Perhaps dosort=(title|filename|pathfilename|reverse|randomize)?

Please don't make me implement these in JavaScript...

I'd also like a way to easily reorder the playlist, in a custom way.  Perhaps setplorder=[song ID],[song ID],[song ID]... and so on.  It would just be a comma-separated (semicolons are good, too) list of the IDs of every song in the playlist.  This would make manipulating the playlist in an interactive way (e.g., drag-and-drop) much easier.  Without this, doing drag-and-drop is just a nightmare (I'd have to systematically abuse the insert command--imagine removing every track in the playlist, except for the currently playing one [to not interrupt play], then inserting the entire playlist in the new order, then moving down the current track until it is in its correct position--all in one POST.  Don't make me do it.  Please.).

Oh, and another though: it would be nice to be able to change the path (and filename) of a playlist entry (like in the manual editing dialog of Winamp, which will be hard for me to implement without this feature) via querystring.  For instance, 5470068F1_setpath=V%3A%5CMusic%5CAmerican%20Pie.mp3

The syntax was meant to imitate that of the arguments for changing inifile settings, but it's not really important.  It can be broken apart--whatever.

Thanks,
Tom W.M.
