Sansa Clip Playlist Creator - easy creating playlist for Clip

 

Sansa Clip Playlist Creator 0.9b (stable, beta version)

An utility to create .m3u playlist for Sansa Clip audio player.

It was born because when I want to put mp3s on player I must open AIMP Classic, then create playlist and manually remove the disc letter from playlist file, moreover AIMP doesn’t sort tracks according to tags so I must did it manually too. So I made this, all-in-one program:)

Functionality:

  • playlist creating, saving it to player or other place (automatically)
  • you can choose the name of track in playlist, for example Author - Title or only Title, data from tags
  • sorting files: alphabetical and according to tracks order from tags (it’s useful for albums)
  • reading tags from all music types supported by Sansa Clip
  • writing tags, including batch writing (e.g. when you want to change album name)
  • changing names of files (batch also)
  • playing all kind of music files, stopping, pausing etc., like simply audio player
  • drag & drop music supported
  • it accepts MP3, FLAC, OGG, WMA, WAV and AA files
  • checking if Clip is connected to PC

This software contains two languages, the default is English. you change it to Polish in Options->Language.

Application is easy to use, your only turn is to put the music in program, click Create playlist and it’s done! Seriously, it’s simply and very convienient.

It has GNU GPL license, so it’s fully free and open .You can copy and redistribute it. Also you are allow to edit its code to be more comfortable to you:)

Requirements:

  • .NET Framework 3.5
  • Windows 7; Windows Server 2003; Windows Server 2008; Windows Vista; Windows XP
  • 400 MHz Pentium processor or equivalent (Minimum); 1GHz Pentium processor or equivalent (Recommended)
  • RAM:96 MB (Minimum); 256 MB (Recommended)

I remind you, it’s beta version and it is not finally edition (but all functionality is added and working good). There shouldn’t be errors, but sometimes you can get an unexpected message. If so, please e-mail me at bkcotm*at*gmail*dot*com.

Download is on SourceForge , and there will be the newest versions.

I didn’t make it for money or to support SanDisk, firstly I want to made my life easier, and then I thought that someone probably have the same problem so I give you this. If you wanna this, download it. It’s easy.

I apologise for my English:)

Regards:)

What . . . Another one? Pretty soon there’ll be more Playlist Creators than players to use them on. :smileyvery-happy:

Your English is just great; thanks you for posting this, which will come in handy!  Also, great picture of the Clip above!

Give me some creators for Clip, I’ll take their functions and make the best Creator ever!:slight_smile: The only One, all-in-one:)

Hi bkco,

My 1st post…I downloaded your playlist creator and am having some problems. I have 130 mp3 podcasts in the PODCAST directory on my 4GB Clip. When I run the playlist creator, I get approx. a dozen popups saying the Sandisk Clip doesn’t play mp3 files. After clicking thru the popups, a playlist is created. If I open the playlist in Notepad, everything seems to be ok. When I select the playlist on the Clip, it’s empty. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong?

Thanks,

Mark

Usually and <empty> playlist means the path to the files in the playlist is wrong. Make sure you’re populating the playlist from files on your player , not on your computer.

Thanks Tapeworm for the response. That’s what I’m doing. Using the “Open folder with music…”, Im getting the mp3 files from the Clip.

At the moment the program is case sensitive. So if your files are called *.MP3, it won’t recognize them. But a new version is in the pipes-

Thanks Leif. I figured out the error messages. There were some tracks that were missing tag info. The generated playlist still shows up as empty on the Clip. I wonder if part of the problem is the tracks are in the Podcast directory. Maybe it only works on tracks in the music directory.
