I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I don't really get the logic of Noise player (or these music-library based players in general, I use Audacious on my other systems). However I want to give it a chance before I switch so please don't recommend other players (unless they follow elementary design guidelines but work like Audacious).
Update: After switching to elementary OS Juno on my primary laptop (a Dell ultrabook), I've found that Music/Noise actually cannot even load my library (~30 GB of mp3s) - it crashed every time I tried to import it. Then I tried Melody - a great player by Artem Anufrij, which loaded the library in two minutes. This player works exactly how I expect it, I highly recommend it and if I knew about it before, I wouldn't even bother to aks this question here.
When I double-click on an album (for example) I expect it to play just that album but it won't - it plays from the whole collection of my music, which is incredibly annoying. Shuffle in particular is very problematic in this regard, with shuffle off it plays the album before it switches to some other music.
Also the queue feature works rather unpredictable - I managed to put some songs there once but when I tried to add more songs it didn't update and showed no other songs than the first batch. Also most of the time the queue shows up as empty even though there is music playing, which is superpuzzling to me.
So to narrow it down:
- How do I make Noise to play only subset of my library, e.g. few albums or just hand-picked songs?
- How do I use queue properly?
