    First, I love the program. It would be great if you could enable us to add multiple songs, and be able to delete songs while they’re in the playlist box.

    You can already add multiple songs and delete them. If you’re talking about adding and removing while it is playing then it’s because the current implementation needs to be extended a little before that will be possible.

    I haven’t worked on this in over a year, but the next thing I do will most likely be code rewrite to improve the it so I can add options like you are talking about. The source is posted if you feel like you’d like to take a stab at it. ;)

      I also can’t delete songs…tried everything. What are the steps?

    I too am enjoying this program though it is having problems playing song’s with apostrophes. Any idea what I could do?

      Thanks for reporting this. I don’t recall seeing this bug before, but I probably wasn’t testing for it either. I haven’t modified the code for this in over 2 years. Sorry for any inconvenience, but the only solution I supposed would be to remove apostrophes from filenames.

      I may one day get around to looking into this, but unfortunately I don’t have the time these days to publish an update. If you’re interested and up for it, you can always take a look at the source files and make any alterations.

      It sounds to me like the filenames are not being escaped properly. Maybe I can find some time over the holidays to look into this further. Best of luck!

    I’ve been waiting for a WMP compatible power hour program for a LONG time. Really enjoy it! One suggestion is to make an option for a short sound clip inbetween songs…like a siren or “DRINK BITCH” lol…just to make the song change a little more pronounced. Also, how do you add multiple songs at once? If it’s possible, I haven’t figured it out yet.
