I'm in the middle of brainstorming a HTPC/automation project, and while tossing around ideas with myself, a question popped up. Can a CCF be designed such that a song can be selected from a music library and then dragged/dropped into a playlist window?

Essentially what I want to do is build a machine for storing all of my music and movies and use a touch screen with NR interface to access, browse, organize playlists, and play music. I'd also like to try and add some kind of iPod compatibility so that if an iPod is plugged into the PC, I can browse and play the music on the iPod (from the NR interface). Any additional thoughts?

Thanks!

Not sure you could get a drag/drop working but you certainly can implement an 'add' to the playlist button. I do this with my Now Playing skin to create a playlist by 'browsing' through my albums and clicking the 'add' button for either the entire CD or individual tracks. When I am done I can save the playlist. This is all done on a ELO 15" touchscreen.
