Hi guys,
I asked about his particular problem on IRC channel but it didn't help me much to solve it. The problem is that the player keeps replacing my playlist content which is quite frustrating at times (especially if it has 100+ different songs in it).

The advice i got on the irc was to check the "always send new files to "Default playlist". However this feature seems to work only for the files selecter internally from Media Library for example. Each time I select a playlist, and then click file/open/... anything, the playlist content is completely removed and replaced by that one or more files I selected to play "externally", i.e. not fro media library or anything else inside the player.

I assume there must be a solution for this. Winamp didn't create a new playlist or even replace the old one, it just played the song. Where can i find that one or more checkboxes that will ensure this?

There may be other methods, as I am a user who has never used the FILE menu to play a track in foobar2000. Just took a look at it now. In my File menu, I have Add Files and Add Folder selections. Might be a better choice for you instead of open.

If, based on old habits, you do overwrite a playlist[keeping in mind you could also OPEN this files in another playlist], you can use the handy FILE > UNDO functionality and return to where you were.
And just a heads up, the behavior of one piece of software has zero to do with another and no one here cares wink.gif
