Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

Thanks Elias.

But is there a way to get the names of the playlists all in the same order,  for instance Artist name > Album name ? I have all my albums tagged with MP3Tag or Tag & Rename. But the playlists, generated with your tool are different in order. Some are Artist > Album and some are Album > Artist. Has it something to do with the tagging itself and is there a way to influence it ?

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

If I understand correctly what you're saying, then I'm afraid not. The playlists themselves are ordered by the Clip. There's no way to change that.

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

Here is an example of what I mean ( a few playlists):

 

Tracy Chapman - Our Bright Future - MUSIC.m3u8

Manu Chao-La Radiolina - MUSIC.m3u8

I See A Darkness - Bonnie  ''Prince''  Billy.m3u8

The Living Road - Lhasa De Sela.m3u8

 

The first two have the artist name in front and the 3rd and 4th the album name.

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

Rij, why not just use the Clip's "albumn" option?

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

Hey everyone!  This looks like a great tool! I have one a couple of questions though:

  1. What file format the the "Sansa View" use for playlsits

and, that being said:

 

   2.  Can I use this to make playlists for my "Sansa View"

 

   3.  If not, what can I use? Is there a similar program?

I don't have my "Sansa View" yet, so I can't test it, but I expect to arrive soon and would like to know how to make playlists.

 

Thanks!

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

XCFan, the View is quite like the Clip, so it's probably OK to use my program with it too. Other than that, you could also use any desktop media player to create M3U playlists (WMP, WinAmp, etc.)

This is probably because the first two folders are named as "Artist - Album". The name genaration works better if you have an "Artist" folder containing one or more "Album" folders.

 

You could either rename the folders or separate them and run AutoM3U twice with different settings, changing the name generation order. Anyway, I'm planning to have a preview function in the next version that I hope will make things like this easier. It will let you see the playlists before they are created and let you modify their names, song order etc.

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

[ Edited ]

i wish i found your program before i went and wrote mine. oh well, it only took me 1 hour. im uploading it here.
it has no user intrace. place it in F:\MUSIC and run it.

features:
- creates separate m3u playlists for each directory and its subdirectories
- place this program in source directory and run it
- each playlist will contain mp3 files that are in directory and all its subdirectories
- each playlist is named after its directory.
  at the beginning of playlist name in parantheses is also the number of items it contains.
- each playlist is placed in directory which is source of its mp3 files
- if playlist with that name already exists it is overwritten.
- source code is small (180 lines), written in easy language Euphoria
  and can be easily customized

 

here it is, 70 k, both exe and source included:

Re: Automatically generate playlists for folders

Elias,

 

Do I load songs directly through your program? And can I have as many individual playlists as I choose? When I sync through Windows Media Player and add a playlist, it overwrites my previous playlist. Does your program do away with WMP altogether? Is there some detailed step-by-step instruction for your program?

 

Regards,

crooner
