[Rhythmbox-devel] searching file path in rhythmbox

Steven Brown said:
For me, I rarely play from playlists. I usually play shuffle on my entire library, skipping stuff I don't feel like, once in a while "Browsing this artist" to play more songs that I particularly enjoyed at any given time.

I do *exactly* the same thing. Since I have some mp3s from the late 90's - before ID3 - I sometimes have difficulty finding the music that I'm interested in. The sought-after mp3 files are usually labeled something like 01__~.MP3 (yay dos), but have been carefully organized in folders based on album / artist.

should i suck it up and tag my old mp3s, or is there a chance of searching the **path** of files as well as artists/album/titles ?? right now I usually have to go into mpd to find my crusty old mp3s, since that lets you search the path. but mpd does not let you shuffle the entire collection (easily, (i think))

I would be willing to code this up myself - since I assume rhythmbox knows the paths of it's mp3s so should be kinda easy - but I tried for a bit to compile rb and was frustrated :/
