[Bug] Plugin - NowPlaying - Shuffle & Repeat

Post by ZXCVBOT »

(Edit: Changed Title, Added Repeat) (Edit 2: Removed SetShuffle & SetRepeat)
Pointed firsthand by Yincognito in the below link:

When setting the Shuffle and Repeat from the player and not a skin, it is not reflected in the measure from the skin.

If previously there was no shuffling and repeating from either the skin or the media player: The shuffle and repeat value tends to stay 0; Later, when shuffling or repeating is enabled from the media player, the value instead of becoming 1 remains to be 0.

If previously there was shuffling and repeating from either the skin or the media player: The shuffle and repeat value tends to stay 1; Later, when shuffling or repeating is enabled from the media player, the value instead of becoming 0 remains to be 1.

Expected Behaviour: Value of Shuffle and Repeat should mirror the changes according to the changes happening in either the skin or the app.

Thanks for posting this. In case it helps the developers, so far we noticed this while using Winamp and AIMP, though it will probably be true for the other players supporting these values of the PlayerType option.

P.S. The related command bangs ("SetShuffle" and "SetRepeat") work properly to set my Winamp settings - except the latter's inability to differentiate between repeat playlist and repeat track modes - it's just the PlayerType options that do not update properly according to the changes made in the player.
