[Desktop] Keeps repeating same songs when search a keyword in playlists

alperensenalp

So, I have Windows 10, connecting from Turkey. After the big update which the template changed this problem occured for me, if it is a problem. Let's say I search for "yellow" in a playlist and it founds 5 songs related to that. When I start playing one of them, it doesn't play all the playlist but rather only that 5 songs. The queue consists only these 5 songs relating with yellow.

Hey @alperensenalp,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!

 

Currently if you write any word in the Filter bar (the little magnifying glass search bar) this will filter only songs which contain that specific word in their Name, Artist, Album. So all other songs in the playlist will be filtered out. What you'd need to do is to clear the search bar after you've found the song you were looking for. This way you'll see all the songs in the playlist and you'll be able to play them.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

So then why does the song I searched for in the Filter bar just repeat even after I cleared the Filter bar?

Sure thing!
Here's a link of a quick test I did:

(This happens when shuffle is disabled as well)

Hey there @Daniel00000,

Thanks for your prompt response and the linked video!

Looking at the recorded situation and replicating it, we can conclude that this is rather an expected behavioral situation when filtering with search terms within a playlist. When you start playback from the filtered results the app generates a queue list that matches your search term and adds that to the queue. Clearing the filter words doesn't change that if you don't actually click play on one of the items shown in the results. 

Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.

I see, is there any way to change this or work around it?
It's really annoying to be frank.
Thank you for your help.
