JRemote: new playlist or add to playlist
« on: July 08, 2014, 04:38:28 am »

Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to JRemote and while I think it is a great product, I can't seem to find a feature I use very often: creating, editing and adding songs to custom playlists.
Am i dumb? Missing something?
Can you walk me into that?

Say I have a playlist called "Cool Stuff" and I happen to listen to a song I want to include there.. how do I do it entirely via JRemote?

Thanks.

Ok, here is the current way to do this in JRemote. I may make this a sticky later.

Playlist editing in JRemote

First of all, playlist editing requires MC version 19+. If you have a lesser version, the "Save playlist" option will not be visible.

Creating a playlist

From the "Action" button on the "Now Playing" screen, select "Save playlist".
You may now choose to either replace an existing playlist or add a new one by tapping the "+" icon at the top.
All tracks in the current "Now playing" list will be saved to the new playlist.

Editing a playlist

Tap the "Edit" button and reorder and delete tracks as needed. When you are done, save the playlist as described above.

Adding songs

Make sure the playlist you want to add tracks to is loaded. From the "Action" button on the "Now Playing" screen, select "Load playlist".
Now you can start to browse your files and add tracks to the "Now playing" list. When you are done, you need to save the "Now playing" list as described above. Make sure you replace the playlist that you loaded initially.

Quick tip for quickly adding tracks to current playlist

If you are about to add multiple tracks or albums to the playlist, you should change the "Default tap mode". This is the small "=>" icon visible in any file view. The icon is different depending on your selected mode.

From the popup, select "Add to playlist" or "Add all to playlist". This will now be set as the new global default.
Now, when you tap a file it will just be added to the "Now playing" list, instead of starting to play.

Future additions

The version after the next will allow you to save any track directly to a playlist, without you having to load it first.

This is the only practical feature to edit playlists I am waiting for. Thanks!!

Sorry, not yet. I promise this will be in the next release. (One more bug fix release first though, out in  a few days).

Wow! 10 years to the day since this thread was opened.

Basically, how do I take a single track or an album and add it to an existing playlist?  Either while playing or not.  Currently on Media Center 31 on a Windows 11 machine. JRemote is on both an iPhone 12 and an iPad 9, each with up-to-date iOS.

I see a reference to a "'Default tap mode'. This is the small "=>" icon visible in any file view." Does this still exist? If so, maybe someone could post a screenshot highlighting it for me.

Edit - I have now found the Default tap mode icon on my iPhone. It was hidden behind a display showing me the album playing. Still haven't found it on the iPad.  And of course, it doesn't solve my problem.

Also, I have found that when I try to delete a playlist with swipe left, nothing happens.
