kPlaylist finds all symlinked folders and lists them in the main window. However, when I do a search for a symlink name, it won't show up unless I've just accessed that symlinked folder.
What I'm trying to do with kPlaylist is create a server that will allow me to access my very large collection of Japanese karaoke music anywhere, such that I can use it as a resource when I go to a party, for example. I wanted to have all the songs cross referenced, such that if someone searched for the English title of a series, they could still find it.
Sometimes a series might be known by several names. For example, I have a folder called "Hagane no Renkinjutsushi" which contains all the karaoke songs I have from that series. However, the series is also known by fans as "Fullmetal Alchemist", and sometimes by nicknames such as "FMA", "Hagaren", etc. I've never found a mp3 database software that could account for these multiple names, but kPlaylist, with its symlink support, has come the closest.
I've upload the original folder to my server and then symlinked folders with alternate names to the original. The original folder and the symlinked folders all appear in kplaylist, but it would be nice if they could be searchable as well, so that someone could find the same songs by searching for "Alchemist" or "FMA" as they could for "Renkinjutsushi". I don't mind if my database gets huge, but I'd rather not have multiple copies of the same song on my server, if possible.
Perhaps, when following symlinks, an entry could be created with a separate filepath? I know this is asking for a lot, and I understand that it may not be possible, but I figured that it couldn't hurt to ask.
