Hi.. New to E-Touch and ive had a look but can't find the answer to my questions.. Any help would be much appreciated.
1. How do you have the songs display as song titles not albums?
2. If there is a film clip attached to the song will it play automatically or do you have to be in Video mode?
Thanks

If you want the songs to display as singles then you need to put each song in it's own folder. Tag the album name field of the song as the song title and drop an image in the folder to user as the cover.

If the track is video then this will play, the separate video library is just for those that want to split the videos off from the main songs such as in a commercial environment where you might want to charge more for videos.

thanks for the info!!

So if i put the songs in seperate folders is there a way to display the songs as a list in alphabetical order instead of the boxes that they're displayed in on the demo??? ORRR would it bebetter to have a folder of say 90's with all the songs from the 90's in it so when the box is clicked on there will be 500 songs by alphabetical order from different artists etc??

You can do either of those. If you just want a song list then you can use the skintool to make a COV file that only displays the titles so you would end up with just a text list of songs.

Or as you say you can group all the 90's tracks together with an image. If you group the tracks together in a folder for say 90's make sure they all have the same album name in the tag. You can do this in tag and rename and it will bulk do them all in the folder. You could set the album name to be something like "Hits of the 90's".

Hope that is some help.
