Additions:
~When searching [[http://blog.puppylinux.com/?viewDetailed=00033 youtube]] inside pMusic, there is a difference in how to specify the best search-string. Youtube has a advanced search-engine which gives result for __related items__. This means you can specify 'as much as possible' to get the closest result. pMusic has a simple search-engine, and requires the search-string to have a correct syntax. It must not be complete (not even the words) and it isn't case sensitive, but the search will fail if the search-string is misspelled. The consensus is: Search youtube, write whatever. - Else, search simple.

Additions:
~~- **My tracks** is local audio files stored in the [[http://blog.puppylinux.com/?viewDetailed=00024 database]]. The database holds a lot of data, and whatever info the database holds about a track will be a target for your search. E.g. You store your music in /dir/music/, and are searching for //**''Madonna Music''**// you will get all tracks because //**''Music''**// corresponds with directory name found in the database.

Edited on 2016-07-09 10:18:04 by zigbert
Additions:
~~-The last option is a plain **file search**, and let's you specify directory to search in. This will find all files - also those not stored in the database. Normally all music is stored into the database, but in some cases, the user can override this, and a full-range file search is required. This kind of search is much slower than a search inside the database. pMusic uses [[pFilesearch]] as the file search engine.
