1.4 Beta 1 - Add to playlist file, Jump to Playing, and playback support for adts/opus/wma lossless

Here is the first of 4 or 5 beta releases for 1.4. There are plenty more features that will be added.  I've tested this build on a few devices but have not done extensive testing yet so there may be some bugs.

Here is a video of the often requested "Jump to playing artist/album/etc" feature:
