How to play dozens of songs just by hitting Enter on my mp3 Windows explorer folder?

Post by WilliamTael on Sat Aug 01, 2015 5:35 pm

When I'm at my mp3 folder (with MPC closed) I select dozens of songs (mp3 files) and hit "Enter", but then the songs starts to play on WMP (Windows Media Player).
I already have MPC set as my default mp3 player, but the problem still happens.
But when I do the same process with less number of songs (say... 12 songs), it plays on MPC just as I wanted to.
Why is that?
By the way, KMPlayer doesn't have this problem.
Can anyone here fix this or maybe send me a contact email from the MPC developer?

Another thing: where can I download skins for MPC?

Explorer has a limit of 15 files for certain actions. You can easily increase that to a higher number:

Thank you! That could solve the problem, but unfortunately MPC puts the last file in the beginning of the play list (for some reason).
Is there a way to fix this last problem?
And... are there any skins for MPC?

Only the toolbar is skinnable:

I think the playlist order bug was fixed yesterday in MPC-HC, so I expect that to work correctly again in next version of the pack.

Thanks again! Is there a way for me to create a skin?

You can create your own toolbar.bmp file. Each icon is either 16x16 or 32x32 pixels.

The problem still persists. MPC still plays the last song first.

It is working here with version 1.7.9.143 of MPC-HC from version 11.3.7 of the pack.

It does mark the last file as selected when viewing the playlist, but the first is playing (marked with red color).

Nope. It still doesn't play the first one.
For example: the first song in the folder is Alphaville_Big In Japan and the last one is Europe_Carrie, when I hit Enter the first song playing is Europe_Carrie.
It should be alphabetically playing Alphaville first.

Hmmm, it indeed seems to behave differently when pressing Enter. The order is correct when I use right-click and Play with MPC-HC (or add to MPC-HC playlist). It might be Explorer that is doing things wrong.

Good theory, but no. If KMPlayer can do it by default then it's not an Explorer bug.

It's kinda funny that I'm always f*cked up with most rarest of the bugs.
Bugs that nobody else has given the sh*t about. Hahahah!
Just so you know, my Windows 10 Start Menu doesn't pin apps on it and nobody else is reporting this bug on forums.
Tell me about bad luck...
