Search has different categories in which Any is the default (which is good). But search is somehow restricted, for example: Fleetwood Mac - Dreams a great song if I would want to find it via search I could only do it by the following options:
- “fleetwood mac” (or portion of it) and then scroll manually
- “dreams” and then scroll manually
- “Rumours” (album name) and then scroll manually
BTW Search will fail to find a song name when I will punch few words of it but not in the right order e.g, It Must Have Been Love, If I will search “Must Been” I will not get a result
While the easiest way to find it would be “flee dream” i.e. a portion of the artist and a portion of the title in the same search string, then it should find it as a single result in a very high percentage. Currently no result will be found. I managed to do something similar with bash
mpc playlist | grep -iE "search_word1" | grep -iE "search_word2 | grep -iE "search_wordN"
I can imagine this would affect performance, but I would least want to take the decision if I wish search to behave that way
