Idea: Enable/disable a NAS source
#1
Hi,

For some reasons I have more than one "library" (read: NAS Sources). I don't use them all at the same time because of the size. One of the reasons I have them is because I split up my music into different type of music. That's one of the reasons…
But instead of typing in all the different parameters (type, server, user, password...) wouldn't it be possible to create, next to each created NAS source, a disable/enable checkbox?
Would be handy…

Thx,
Johan

It could be a useful feature. I'll add to the TODO list.

Is this still on the ToDo list?

Yes, but not getting much priority relative to other items on the list for example the changes needed to support the new Pi-4B and Raspbian Buster OS.

When you get round to it, it would be nice if this feature could support enabling / disabling particular paths on USB libraries too. I have quite a mixed library, lots of classical, jazz, quite a bit of pop, but also all my old heavy metal albums. It would be nice to be able to put all the metal in a particular folder and be able to disable it in the context menu in the folder view, so that if the kids are using Moode and press "random album" they don't get an earful of Slayer... (I can't just pull the USB stick as the Pi and usb storage are built into a 19" case and not easily accessible.)

That would be very nice. I can do without my christmas-collection now ?
Would also like to hide some (a lot) albums I only use occasionally.

In that same vein- is it possible to specify a NAS directory (NFS for me!) for playlists to save to instead of writing to the SD card - I don't have a USB drive plugged in.

probably. You would need to replace /var/lib/mpd/playlists dir with a symlink to /mnt/Playlists and then mount your remote Playlists dir to this local dir.

Something like that.
