Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Search influences Playlist

Didn't find a topic for that, so I just opened a new one. I hope it's in the correct sector.

My question:
Is it possible, that if I put every song into a playlist and search for a specific artist, the playlist only shows and plays that artist I searched for, as in iTunes?
Don't want to use iTunes, but it would be awesome, if there's a tool or something for Foobar, too.

Thanks in advance,
Stephan

That's not what I meant. I mean, that in the playlist are only the songs/artist/whatever I search for, when I use the CRTL-F search window.

And if you send the result to a playlist ?

Strg + F is creating a playlist. Just give a new name.

"Every song" should already in your media library. Creating a playlist with "every song" would then be redundant.

...and search for a specific artist, the playlist only shows and plays that artist I searched for, as in iTunes?

If you search the library (found in [main menu]->Library->Search]) for an artist, you can then click the [...] button and create a playlist that only contains tracks from that artist.
