Mistakes files loaded over network
Submitted by Gary Lawrence Murphy
This is almost a feature request, but it's so nearly there I hope it's a bug ...
I have Thunar 1.6.12 open on files across the LAN using sftp, and if I press the space bar on a selected MP3, the file plays correctly in Parole. If I drag and drop a directory or a collection of files, Parole cues up all the files in the first sub-directory of the remote view. Now here's were it is strange:
I have a dir structure like
music/ +- folder_one +- file_one.mp3 ... +- folder two
if I select folder one while in 'music' and drag and drop, the files in folder one are cued and played
if I select folder two while in 'music' and drag and drop, the files for folder_one are again cued
if I enter folder two and select all files from folder two, drag and drop, the files from folder one are cued, one copy for every file in the select list
if I enter folder two and select a file and press the space bar, the correct file is played
this suggests something goes wrong in the drag and drop?
It would be really sweet if I could keep my files on one machine, but play them on another. Videos too, and the space-bar behaviour suggests it is possible, just not yet fully implemented :)
