Consume mode

What is the consume mode in the playback section? I mean the feature with the recycle bin / trash icon.

Thanks.

Consume mode makes MPD remove played songs from the play-queue. It's a built-in MPD feature, and I must admit I was quite confused too about its function at the beginning...

I would suggest using something other than the Trash Can icon. We have all been conditioned to associate this icon with deleting files.

In fact, even after knowing what it actually does in the context of the player, I'm still thinking "is this going to delete by files?" It's a Pavlovian response!

You are right, that's a left-over of the first version of the UI. Anyway I'm already thinking about reworking those buttons in a more clear and useful way.
