Browse Music with embedded Filesystem Browser

Registered by Amit Mendapara on 2011-05-23

It will be a great addition to have an embedded file system browser to browse the music directly from the file system. This is particularly, helpful with huge music library well organised on filesystem itself. For example, I myself organize my music on file system like this:

$HOME/Music/{GENRE}/{ALBUM}/{TRACK-TITLE}
$HOME/Music/Best of {ARTIST}/{TRACK-TITLE}

It will be even great if BeatBox add support for indexing the files for quick search.

This can be either done with embedded filesystem browser accessing file system directly or a different view for music library database (see folder view extension of Rhythmbox).

Will not be implemented. BeatBox is a music library manager, not a folder browser. I would suggest nautilus + totem.

May be, but then you can even consider it as a different view of the music library browser that uses file names instead of tags.
