Hi,

Is there any way to stop Rhythmbox from clearing a song from the Play Queue once it has played it?

I searched the forums and haven't found a solution. This question had been raised before (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1002974&highlight=rhythmbox+play+queue), but there was no answer given (the guy who responded confused 'playlist' with 'play queue').

Basically, whenever I queue up files to play in Rhythmbox's Play Queue (and i prefer to use that, since I operate it via Gnome-Do), they are auto-cleared as soon as I have finished playing them. I'd like to stop Rhythmbox from clearing them as I like to put them on repeat.

Is there any way to do this? Please help, I haven't been able to find any solution for this on these forums or others

You have to install music from your own music home folder to have it download and have persistence. If it is a seperate /home you have made in partitioning it will not have persistence if from different install.

From to this post on the dev mailing list it appears that this is the way the play queue is supposed to operate. ie, This is a feature, not a bug.

Playlists are the way to go it seems.

Thanks garvin and pseudo-morphy.

I actually wanted to avoid playlists, because Gnome-Do doesn't seem to recognise them. Ah well, guess there's no other option now
