Dear Sirs,

unfortunately the Fiio Music app on M11 is not able to play back audio files in nested folders recursively. I give you an example:

- TopFolder
- TopFolder\TopFolderFile1.mp3
- TopFolder\TopFolderFile2.mp3
- TopFolder\SubFolder1
- TopFolder\SubFolder\SubFolder1File1.mp3
- TopFolder\SubFolder\SubFolder1File2.mp3
- TopFolder\SubFolder2
- TopFolder\SubFolder\SubFolder2File1.mp3
- TopFolder\SubFolder\SubFolder2File2.mp3

If if choose playback for the folder "SubFolder1", the Fiio Music app only plays the files in "SubFolder1". Same for the folder "SubFolder2". If I chosse playback for the folder "TopFolder", nothing happens. I don't even get an error message or other kind of hint. It would be much better to have a recursive playback, i.e. to playback all albums of an artist, that are organized in folders within the artist folder.

At the moment this is a very poor user experience.

Dear user,

Yes, the playback icon in beside the folder icon will only play the files in the folder. The files in subfolder are not included in order to avoid operation delay problem.

We will report to your feedback to the engineer for assessing as well.

Best regards

Dear Sirs,

I don't share the thought, the hardware of the M11 is not powerful enough, so that a operation delay problem can't be avoided.

For a test I've installed Kodi on the M11. With Kodi it is no problem for the M11 to start a random playback of nested folders (nested over three levels "main folder -> artist -> album") with hundreds of audio files. The files are not accessed by the use of an index or database, but only of the structure of the filesystem.
