Hi Tassilo,

Your translation/dict stuff is still going strong.

How about a "how to"?

Obvious stuff like : Here is my music, how do I get emms to see it and
allow me to make a playlist? The documentation is lousy. Sorry :( It
really is semi-impenetrable. If you dont believe me, put someone in
front of it and ask them to make emms work! It took me half a day to
realise that the reason that it didnt work at all was down to its
default player list! Even though I had mplayer, it fell over when the
first one  in the list wasnt available. Who would have a default player
list of 5 players? Better to have none and document to add the one that
the user uses.

emms-browser : how does one use it? I open it and look at an empty buffer!

Aha. Maybe I expected too much. I assumed it would look for them, like
every other music player out there, based on album name!

As you know, I love emacs, but it could/should be easier  to play a tune
