I have a pretty long playlist and I often look for a particular song in it.
I grew a bit tired of having to scroll the whole thing, and I wrote a quick
patch to find a particular song. It prompts for a search string, matches
the first title that contains this string, selects the song and scrolls the
playlist window to it. There is also a "Find next" feature.
The patch is against the 1.2.10 version.
If anyone is interested, I will try to make it a bit less of a ugly hack :)
Isn't that what "jump to song" is all about? Just tap J with
XMMS in focus, then enter a substring. AmaroK, for a change,
makes such a feature integrated with the playlist. I look
forward to XMMS 2! I still use XMMS because AmaroK is
bloated (much like iTunes).
