Bug Description

Binary package hint: exaile

I think we should add a GtkInfoBar at the top of the playlist with the name of the song which isn't available, and ask the user if he wants to remove it from the librairy and let the player play the next song.

This for the upstream bug report use. Why is sending this bug report to the upstream developer an "Opinion"? Please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status for proper use of the Status field.

Charlie, I AM exaile's upstream. Please respect my changes. This is a feature that has been requested before, and the short answer is that to handle all the edge cases right requires more information than the playback engine currently has available to it, so it would require substantial changes to support, and there are more-important issues to deal with. IMO, that problem fits the description of the Opinion status perfectly.

Thank you for your comment. It sure makes it easier to know why you set the status. Without knowing you personally, there is no easy way to see why you would set that without a comment.

Based on the comment above from upstream, this is not going to be fixed soon. Marking as confirmed, wishlist.
