Skip Track

By: Case

Allows you to skip tracks that match a specified search query. By default the component will skip all files with RATING set to 1. The query is configured in Preferences -> Advanced -> Playback -> Skip Tracks.

Starting from version 1.5 time expressions are supported. For example to skip all bad or recently played files you can use the following query: %rating% IS 1 OR %last_played% DURING LAST 8 HOURS

Skip query also offers $rand() field to generate random number from 0 to 2^32-1. %playlist_name% returns the name of the playlist where the current file is played from. And %playback_order% returns the playback order name.

The component also offers functionality to skip only parts of a track. To utilize the partial skipping set a tag field SKIP with timecodes that you want skipped. For example SKIP=0:00:00-0:01:25 (or simply SKIP=-0:01:25) to skip the first 85 seconds.

Latest changes:
1.9 (2014-08-05): Fixed muted output when resuming in paused state. SKIP and BOOKMARK fields no longer override playback resume position. Allows other components to seek to any position on track start regardless of SKIP field's presence.
