    Cannot get drag and drop favourites to work

    Thanks McBainUK for the start of what might become the "killer plugin" for the GBPVR. I think many of us have been wating for this.

    I Installed it and manged to search, add and play within GBPVR. However, I did not get the drag and drop to favourites functionality to work. I only got the "not allowed" icon trying to drag directly from spotify. Also tried to add a spotify url file but nothing came up in the list.

    Finally, I saw that you have NMT support as todo. This is actually what I will need the most. Is it doable? I vote for this as being prio 1

    Thanks again,

    \\Agerdin

    First Impressions...

    I like it!

    MVP/NMT support would do it for me too - especially if you could get it to run on more than one client at the same time.

    Apart from occasionaly looking for a specific track, I mainly use Spotify's Radio mode to get a random selection of tracks of whatever genre(s) I want - it would be nice if that could find it's way on to your ToDo list...

    Unless support for this was added to the Spotify's public API this would be unlikely.

    What OS are you running? I found that I wasn't able to drag n drop from the Spotify application to the plugin config form in Windows 7. After a lot of head-scrathing (and as much Googling) it turned out that UAC was getting in the way. You are not allowed to drag n drop from a standard process (such as the Spotify application), into a privileged process like the GB-PVR config app! That's one of the reasons I created the standalone Favourites manager. Run Favourites.exe as standard user to enable direct drag n drop from the Spotify player.

    ...I probably should have mentioned this in the release notes

    I have the same problem with Win 7 and I try the standalone exe.
    I even drag'n'droped a couple of urls in to a separate folder, but that didn't help either.
    Next is to turn off UAC and try again...

    Could you attach one of the URL shortcuts so I can try here? It might be something different in the URL file on different languages.

    Well I could, but I doubt that's a problem, as I have the same problem on a win 7 ult. with English locale.

    I added a couple of albums in gbpvr, just to get the favourites.xml populated.
    Then I started the exe and it is still empty. I had expected that the albums should be shown now.
    Are there some dependencies that you have in MusicSpot that I do miss. Another plugin, like MusicLibrary 2 or 3 maybe?

    OK, Im running XP, but I did some more testing and I was able to drag n' drop via the desktop (drag directly from Spotify to create shortcut on desktop and then drag the shortcut to the favourites). Dragging directly to the favourites did not work even starting the favourites app separatly.

    Regarding adding favourites with the add functionality, I need to do some more testing since I dont think I did it correctly.

    Thanks,

    I retested the add functionality and it works as expected. The only problem I have is to dragn'drop directly from Spotify, but I can live with that.
