Bug Description

The following might need to be tweaked:

1. Empty states do not fit within the screen.
2. Playlist dialogs might need to be tweaked so the buttons show on the screen.
3) Now playing full view
4) SongsView and ArtistView should be checked

Original description:
Currently the music app does not allow auto-rotation on a device. However, there are use cases, such as mounting the device in a car, where a user would want the app to be in landscape mode.

Besides enabling auto-rotation, the following might need to be tweaked:

1. Empty states do not fit within the screen.
2. Playlist dialogs might need to be tweaked so the buttons show on the screen.

This has been fixed with shell rotation landing, however some views need to be tweaked so I am therefore changing this bug to track resolving issues with screens when in landscape mode.

Hi

  When the shell is in landscape mode, the media commands take over 45%
  of the screen, so there not so much place for Artwork.

  (just test it on Meizu MX4)

  Best Regards

Hi,
on Aquaris E4.5 media commands cover more than 50% of the screen (see attachment).

In case some inspiration is needed, the above screenshots show Kodimote's now playing page in portrait and landscape.

It can be implemented quite easily by using a GridLayout with 2 cells and setting

columns: page.width > page.height ? 2 : 1
