How To Play CD?
« on: September 18, 2021, 07:08:32 PM »
another noob question - My pc is configured to Autoplay cd using WACUP. However, if I play a file afterward, how do I navigate back to play the cd?

I'm using the beta version (instead of the Preview Release) and what I do is open the library window or pane in the skin I'm using and select the CD drive in the panel on the left. The tracks on the CD are listed in the panel on the right. The tracks can be selected and played in the same ways that other media library files are selected and played.

The metadata for each track is also listed if found in the online database that WACUP uses. If metadata for the CD is found, it can be stored locally so that it doesn't need to be looked up again. The locally stored data can be edited.

Depending on what you were doing, the undo playlist action in the main playlist editor window (better thought of as a temporary queue / scratch list vs what the media library playlists are like) can also be a simpler way to get things back to what had been there prior to what has been set be it loading an audio cd or another playlist, etc if that's what is wanted. Otherwise just add more items into the main playlist however you prefer be it internally or externally.
