Description:

A simple amaroK script to insert delays between songs. It supports two options for inserting delays:
1. A random interval between a specified maximum and minimum.
2. A fixed interval (similar to what amaroK currently supports, but with intervals greater than 10 seconds)

Without delays between songs, I get a brain burn. If you have a motley collection of music with Beethovens interspread with Hammerheads, then you would appreciate this script.

Mostly Usable, but with these Known Issues:
1. It cannot distinguish between the end of the current song and a manual play-stop by the user. I am working on it.
2. The Playlist mode has to be random, otherwise, it keeps playing the first song everytime. (The script uses playlist setStopAfterCurrent)

While I love the concept of this, I am frustrated by the fact that the "Save" button seems to be inactive i.e. I cannot adjust the delay time.

Save works. You can ensure it by looking at the "Inserting delay.." status messages in amaroK.

However, when you open the configure dialog again, the dialog is initialised to its default values.

I have tried hard to read the saved settings into the dialog when the dialog is being initialised, but I am not able to get it done in Kommander.

I have tried using the readSetting in Kommander but that doesn't seem to work.

If anyone knows how to do it in Kommander please help me out.

That makes sense. My appologies for being alarmist.

Though I cannot help you with reading the values set, may I suggest a temporary fix of having "Settings Saved" display after clicking Save?

I will have to go and renenable this.

Sry dude! I tried to make up my mind, but I really could not find an answer: "what is it good for?" oO

Well, for some reason, amarok allows a max delay of only 10 seconds between songs.

If you need larger delays between songs, then this script is for you.

I usually set a random delay with min=20 seconds to max=80 seconds.
