#5345 closed Feature Request (fixed)

Inconsistent behavior with open subfolder media file via a folder shortcut

Reported by: endahosor Owned by: Underground78
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7.9
Component: General Version: 1.7.8
Severity: normal Keywords: subfolder shortcut
Cc: Evaluation:


[Prerequisite]: Put a media file in a subfolder, (i.e. "Music\Sample\media.mp3") and create a shortcut for the folder (In the case is "Music").

There are 5 methods to open the media file in the subfolder, they are:

  1. Right click the folder, select "Play with MPC-HC" from the context menu.
  2. Right click the folder, select "Send to" -> "Media Player Classic". (Need put the MPC-HC shortcut into system "SendTo" folder first.)
  3. Drag the folder to MPC-HC desktop shortcut.
  4. Open MPC-HC, then drag the folder to MPC-HC window.
  5. Open MPC-HC, Click "File" -> "Open Directory..." in the menu, select the folder, and then click "Select Folder" button. (Need check the checkbox "Include subdirectories")

When I operate the 5 methods to the folder directly, all the methods can open the media file successfully.

But when I operate the 5 methods to the folder shortcut, (All the operation to folder is changed to the shortcut.) not all the method can open the media file, here is the detail:

  1. Open media file successfully.
  2. Cannot open media file.
  3. Cannot open media file.
  4. Cannot open media file.
  5. Cannot open media file, and in the status bar, say: "File not found".
