Autoplay Videos in File List

Post by aticus »

Hello! There's a feature I can't seem to understand. In the settings, under "Viewer", I can enable autoplay for videos, which is great. What I don't understand is why, in the file list, when I hover over a video, and even though I'm in detail view without preview, the video starts playing on its own. Is this the expected behavior? I believe that:
- without preview, the video should not play
- but above all, there should be an autoplay option for the viewer and another autoplay option for the file list

I'm sorry if this question was already in the forum. I've looked for it but couldn't find it.

Thank you for this great program.

the preview panel is closed, and you click on a video file, right?

Correct. I have the panel closed and the sound of the selected video can be heard in the background. The solution I've come up with is to open the panel, lower the panel's volume, and close it.

But I believe a more elegant solution would be that:

- the panel's autoplay is independent of the viewer's autoplay
- that autoplay does not work in the file listing if the panel is closed

Thank you very much, boss!
