Since my last monthly system update of Manjaro this weekend the player and playlist controls respond to touch (Strawberry still 0.9.3). I dont know which other updated package caused that, but it works to my satisfaction.
So this request is "solved".
Just a suggestion if you want something relatively simple for radio streams. PLS playlist file:
Create following in text editor (i.e. Notepad), save with .pls extension (i.e. "Radio.pls).
Title1=Whatever title you want
Title2=Whatever title you want
and so on...
If you want them in some specific order and add new ones later you just increment numbers.
With Spotify or Deezer support I mean that the player could have a simple search bar for them without unnecessary graphics and other bloat. Youtube and Vimeo support might have an option for the video to watch. Soundcloud and Mixcloud, these also wouldn't need more than a search bar in my opinion. You would need to use your account in all these streaming sites.
@silver-sun Thank you so much, I thought there would probably be a way of doing it, just that I couldn't find it for some reason. Not sure why not, must have been half asleep at the time. Thanks again, much appreciated
