When skipping a track and returning back to it, the track starts from
the beginning, instead of the last position.

How can I remove items from the playlist?

Is there a plan to make the playlist editable, for changing the order?

Maybe you could add an optional autodelete after a track ended.
This could be useful for podcasts.

Sorry for that amount of feature request! I am desperately looking for
a podcast solution. The Sailfish OS podcatchers out there are either
not very useful, or not further developed. Talefish could be a good
solution for me.

That is exactly how every player that I have ever used behaves, back to my first CD player I bought in 1990.

But this isn't a normal mediaplayer like others. It's an audiobook-
player with a different behaviour. The main feature of such
players is remaining the play positions. Not comparable with a stupid
cd-player.

I guess you are both right.
pichlo uses it as a directory based media/music player, where start from beginning makes sense and is common usage.
Whereas mase seems to use it as audiobook player where keeping track of where last track was left makes more sense (and I guess is common usage, too?)
-- huh, lots of 'where's

Possibly an option to mark a directory as audiobook content or something similar would be nice?

Hi,
thanks for taking the time to investigate your issues with Talefish (and trying it, even)!
  • the current behaviour you describe is the desired one: Talefish only saves you progress per "opened thing". If you open files separately (by tapping on it in the file selector, so basically making it a one-file-playlist), it should save the progress for every file. Within an opened directory, skipping to track beginnings is, as pichlo pointed out, the expected behavior by most users, so the player is not even remotely designed to do anything else.
  • removing items from the playlist isn't supported, since it's a rather unusual use case for audio books. You could remove the file and re-open the whole directory, but please mind that this will currently likely mess up your saved progress, as well.
  • while autodelete can be useful for a podcast player, I think it's a bit "dangerous" (well, better: possibly error prone) for an audiobook player.

Please don't apologise for contributing Ideas, those are always welcome! But please don't be sad, either, if I decide not to pursue them for one reason or another.

Edit: After reading peterleinchen's post, I kind of get where you're coming from. But in Talefish, the whole directory/playlist is considered the "Book", which can consist of several chapters/tracks. If you change the Book, the position will be saved, but if you just browse around in it, Talefish is thinking that you intend to "read" from another page, now.

@mase: I'd assume you'd find the functionalities you're looking for in gPodder (it features both stop/resume on various files as well as auto-remove). May I suggest this thread: What's the state of gPodder development?

Sorry for this off topic comment.

If you're dutch, you might be interested in version 0.0-9 on openrepos!
It was translated quite a while ago, but I've just now had the time to push and release it.

- new translation: Dutch (thanks pljmn!)
