As I told you in e-mail, the MN created playlists are behaving in any aspect as regularly created static MM playlists. So, if you could synchronize your manually created MM playlists and get saved playlist files to your device, then you would get saved playlist files for MN created playlists as well.

You should have posted your message in the Device Synchronization forum without mentioning how you got playlists since that doesn't matter for your problem. I.e. your question should be: how to get exported playlists files (M3U) for corresponding MM playlists during synchronization automatically?

I don't have any experience with synchronization, but I suppose that you haven't enabled MN created playlists on the Auto-Sync (-->Device) tab of your Device settings.

HELP--MN Playlist saves music to MMA, but not the playlist
I created my own custom magic node that I moved to the Playlist tree, by setting "Position" as "Child of Playlists". I have a Galaxy Note Edge on stock TouchWiz with MMA installed. I performed a wireless sync, selecting the newly created MN playlist and a MM auto playlist (for testing purposes). I ran the sync, which successfully transferred all the songs to my phone. The only problem is the actual MN playlist file failed to sync to my phone. I have all the music, but no playlist?! Scratching my head on this one, maybe I missed a setting somewhere? I did the same test on a SGS3 using stock touch wiz, but same results.

Has anyone else encountered this? Would love some guidance on this... :cry:

Doh! Thank You, Thank You!
That Worked! :)

I was only accounting for one of the fields before (needs to be both as you point out) :-? .

I still have a couple of other questions and will post back later when have a little more time. :D

Code: Select all
Songs.Artist Not Like '%;%'


Code: Select all
Songs.AlbumArtist Not Like '%;%'


To filter out both at the same time

Code: Select all
Songs.Artist Not Like '%;%' AND Songs.AlbumArtist Not Like '%;%'

That works if you have "various artist" written in a field but not if you have something like "Lou Reed; Iggy pop; Joey Ramone".
[albums that don't have a main album artist and then various other artists. In other words, it's no one's album. It's thematic, and
artist and album artist are both various but listed out]

...and besides, if you are not using multi-artist in MN property drop down menu, what is it for?

How do you exclude "multi" items?

I'm trying to exclude "multi-artist albums.
I tried:

ma is not
ma excludes
...the above 2 with --> ;

I can't figure out the right combination/setting for it.

I know it must be possible, but I've not been able to figure it out:

A node similar to the "Artists with at least one track with track rating >= 4 stars", but filtering out any tracks that aren't rated 4+ stars. Ideally, filtering out any artists with fewer than x tracks rated 4+ stars.

This mask works only in the new version of Magic Nodes:
Code: Select all
<Group|Name:Albums...>\(Complete) Albums with <ID:1> or more files on <ID:2> or more playlists|Icon:Top level|Filter:Songs.IDAlbum IN (SELECT IDAlbum FROM Songs WHERE Songs.ID IN (SELECT IDSong FROM PlaylistSongs GROUP BY IDSong HAVING Count(*) >= <Number|Caption:Min. number of playlists per file|Value:2|MinValue:1|MaxValue:100|ID:2>) <If|Caption:Only complete albums having number of files equal to maximal track #|Value=1|ID:3>AND Songs.IDAlbum IN (SELECT IDAlbum FROM Albums INNER JOIN (SELECT IDAlbum, Count(*) AS CntFld FROM Songs GROUP BY IDAlbum, DiscNumber HAVING CntFld = Max(Cast(TrackNumber As integer)) AND CntFld >= <Number|Caption:Min. number of files per disc|Value:5|MinValue:1|MaxValue:20|ID:4>) AS T1 ON Albums.ID = T1.IDAlbum GROUP BY IDAlbum HAVING Albums.Tracks = Sum(CntFld)) <End If>GROUP BY IDAlbum HAVING Count(*) >= <Number|Caption:Min. number of files appearing on playlists|Value:1|MinValue:1|MaxValue:100|ID:1>)\<Album|Trim:1|Statistic:Count(Album)|Unknown:No>\<Album with album artist|Statistic:Count(Disc number), Count(All), Concat(Playlist)|Show if empty:Yes|Unknown:No>\<Disc number|Unknown:No|Statistic:Count(All)>

Do you folks think I can solve this problem viewtopic.php?f=1&t=78959 with magic nodes?
I tried to have a look into this add-on and discovered the predefined setting "Albums with some tracks rated" but I don't have the slightest idea of how to use sql or whatever Magic Nodes is based on. Any help or suggestions is very welcome!

MM developers didn't provide any kind of customization of the Column Browser to the scripts.

AutoPlaylists can reference other Playlists with the Playlist criteria.

Playlist feat all tracks of an album that appears in a list?

Post by ohneland » Thu Jan 22, 2015 11:30 am

Can I create a playlist that features all complete albums (all tracks from an album either by album tag or by folder or anything else) from which one or more songs appears on playlist X or playlist Y or any playlist?

Background:
On my phone, I discover an album I want to listen to but clicking on it reveals that I only have one song of it. Syncing playlists to my phone results in a multitude of folders/albums with only one song. But on most phones this is not visible from the library view.
So I could sync the playlist specified above.

The Magic Nodes add-on allows creating of nodes in the Media Tree panel, you cannot create any kind of additional sidebar with it.

However, Magic Nodes has the Trim qualifier which could help creating nodes with the first letter of each artists (or any other MN field). Please read the manual about that qualifier and also try the predefined "Album Artist [A-Z], Album (by Year)" mask which is using it (it is the first node inside the Magic Nodes folder).
