Oops. I had to go to this page to refresh my memory. The keys listed in the menus are not actually the shortcuts. They are here. N and p are next and previous, and there's a whole lot of other stuff too. Still don't quite know about those playlists, but read through these -- should help.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Subject: [nvda] So what can you do, and how can you do it, with VLC?
so anybody got tips for VLC then? I'm sorry, I'm gonna need a little more than play and pause and moving through a file. Can I load playlists? Can I open folders? Can I arrow through a list of files and play one of them? Can it play randomly? How do you do previous and next tracks/files/whatever? I mean, I don't really need huge media manipulation abilities, and I very often play things from explorer, but I'm not going to do that for everything.
And sometimes I just want to point a media player at a folder and have it play stuff randomly, or make specific playlists, e.g. if I'm figuring out stuff to burn to a CD or want to listen to, say, all of the recordings I have of folk music with flutes that use a vocal drone if I'm practicing. If this thing's so awesome like all y'all seem to think, and I'm not saying it isn't, you gotta bring more to the table than it can play and pause and move forward and backward through a track. That kind of stuff is fine for a single video file, but not for a collection of stuff.
And while I'm sure VLC can do all of that and more, I haven't really messed with it, mostly because it's only become more accessible fairly recently. So hit us with some info, because I'm pretty interested in trying it out with audio. I like what I've seen of Foobar 2000 so far, but I've already got VLC for videos, so I'll quite happily try it with audio stuff. If it works out, it could save me a ton of work customizing Foobar.
