Options and stuff - Playlist

New tracks

Tick Verify file content to check whether files are actually playable, instead of just checking the extension. If you add files, you can prevent adding duplicates to your playlist by ticking No duplicates. If you then do add a duplicate, you can choose to move the file to where it would be added (tick move existing). If you try to add an HTML page, XMPlay can search for online streams on that page (Scan HTML pages for playable URLs), or for links to playlists (including playlists). The found entries are then treated as added tracks. In the Ignore filetypes-textbox, you can add extension which XMPlay should never load, separated by spaces. Using archive plugins, XMPlay can load music files from compressed archives, but also from archives in archives. The Archive recursion setting determines how many levels of archives-in-archives XMPlay will accept.

List advancing

By default, XMPlay continues playing the next file after the current file has finished, but you can prevent that by unticking Auto-advance. If you'd like XMPlay to randomly choose the next song, check Random order. Note that this does not change your playlist, so you can't see what song will be played next. In random mode, the next button selects the actual next track in the playlist, not a random one, except if you check apply to play/next/previous controls. If XMPlay encounters a dead track in the playlist, you can have it try the next one by unticking Stop at dead track, otherwise it'll halt at the dead track. If XMPlay reaches the end of the playlist, it'll start at the beginning again if you have Loop checked. If XMPlay reaches the end of the queue, it'll continue with the next track from the playlist if you have Stop at end of queue unticked. Finally, if XMPlay reaches the final track and stops after that one, be it of your playlist or your queue, you can choose to keep it loaded, or to unload it from your computer's memory (Unload final track).

Follow current track

If ticked, XMPlay will keep the current track visible in the Playlist panel or in the Extended Playlist by scrolling the playlist on track changes.

Mouse button actions

Here you can define what double-clicking a track should do, as well as middle-clicking and clicking with the two additional buttons you might have on your mouse. You can choose none, play, queue, dequeue, add to/from library, track info, plugin info or remove for each button


Toggle queueing lets you queue a track only once, trying to queue it again will dequeue it. If you untick this box, you can queue a track multiple times, but you have to remove it from the queue with the dequeue action or shortcut. The playlist panel in the Main Window can show the queue if you tick Show queue in playlist panel. The Extended Playlist does not have this functionality. Auto-save every .. mins saves the playlist and the library periodically, so you don't lose too much playback information should anything crash. Finally, Show filenames in extended list forces XMPlay to show full filenames in the Extended Playlist, rather than the formatted titles.
