Summary0008357: Deleting multiple tracks from now playing triggers endless warnings
DescriptionIf the user deletes numerous tracks that are currently playing in the NP queue --> File XXX is now playing. Deleting it will interrupt playback. Are you sure you want to proceed? [Yes] [No]

Then the next file plays, and the error occurs again, and again, and again...

There should be [Yes] [Yes to all] [No] options. (or better yet, [Yes] should behave like [Yes to all]).

The issue is partially fixed in 1431. All the selected tracks are deleted as expected, but the Now Playing list stops playing!

It should continue playing with the track that follows those selected for deletion.

Why it should continue playing if the message says that "Deleting it will interrupt playback" ?

It's referring to the fact that it'll interrupt playback of the currently playing track (and not of the entire Now Playing list).

Fixed in build 1432 (although I think it is odd if MM is continually trying to play a file that is going to be deleted over and over, for me the behaviour in 1431 is better).

Verified 1436

I also Agree with Ludek that behavior was better in 1431

Sorry, I think there was some confusion re. comment It definitely shouldn't continue trying to play each track.

What I meant is that if there's a Now Playing list containing the following tracks:

...and the user selects tracks A1, A2, A3, A4 for deletion, then once the user accepts the warning prompt, tracks A1-A4 should be deleted (without MM trying to successively play each of those tracks), and playback should continue beginning with B1.

Also, in build 1437, there's occasionally a bug with this functionality:
i) sometimes an AV occurs
ii) sometimes there's a warning about MM being unable to delete the track because it's in use (fixing the successively playing each track issue will probably solve this)

Assigning to Rusty for a new review, as I wrote over IM:

  16:03 Jirka: Well, maybe the biggest problem is the app logic, I have been trying to find out the best implementation, but so far unsuccesfully. For example, you try to delete tracks 1, ..., 1000 for a My Computer node. However, track 1 is currently playing and the next one in NP queue is track 1000. So, what currently happens is that playback of 1 is terminated and track 1000 starts. However, in few seconds, when the deletion gets to track 1000, its playback is terminated as well. It's probably a little non-standard example, but I guess that you get the idea.
  16:22 Jirka: Every solution I can think of has some side effects... Maybe you are right that users wouldn't expect playback to be stopped, but on the other hand the whole idea of deleting tracks that are currently playing means that user is doing something nonstandard (and possibly errorneous), so I'd say that it doesn't matter much which solution we choose. For that reason, I'd prefer to return to the original fix from build 1431. You can enter a lower priority bug for a future fix, but for the reasons explained I'm not sure it makes much sense to lose any more time on the issue.

OK so we can revert to the implementation of 1431 for now.

I'll enter a new bug to track the fact that playback stops unexpectedly. The solution discussed would be that on deletion, MM would remove the currently playing track and all other selected tracks from the playlist (exactly as if the user had removed tracks from a playlist), and then then delete the currently playing track from the Library and PC (Jiri was reluctant to make the change now given possible complications e.g. track is locked, inaccessible, or scripts callback prevent its deletion).
