Re: iPlaylist Importer 1.6 - Updated 25/05/2008

Hello Zibby, To sum up the current status of this script is in development of version 1.7 which may solve your problem. v. 1.6 has problems with non-ASCII characters in both playlist names and in filenames. What we are working toward is to rise to the same level of Unicode support that exists in MM....

Re: [2.5.5.996] ID3v2.3 Unicode (UTF-16) Problem

From what I see you have a case of BOM character import at the beggining of XML. Have you tried to remove BOM from the beggining and than import in MMW? I apologize. My post here was off-topic so I think you have misunderstood my problem: I don't have any problem with MMW, only with the iPlaylist I...

Re:

Re: iPlaylist Importer 1.6 - Updated 25/05/2008

I think that's it! in 1.6 after importing the playlists every track is checked if the track is in the MM DB and if not it is add - this should be unnecessary. Well, I haven't changed that aspect yet - I only stopped the updating of file metadata tags, not the importing of tracks. I think, if you do...

Re: iPlaylist Importer 1.6 - Updated 25/05/2008

Yes I use iTunes as master system, but for several jobs I use MM. So I want to transfer all my Playlists to MM but without resync or control all tracks! All tracks and the mediathek is the same, so the importer must only import all playlists from iTunes. If I understand you correctly, this problem ...

Re: Cue Reader 5.6 - Updated 20/07/2014

Yeah, about the encoding issues, that's a VBScript thing. It can do UTF-16 but not UTF-8, which causes all kinds of problems! It's on my list to try and sort it, but not had much luck so far. Hi trixmoto, We've spoken briefly about this, in context of iPlaylist Importer - which I'm still working on...

iPlaylist Importer 1.6 - hack for UTF-16, Asian languages

I post this, here, in the proper context, for completeness, as I came upon it in my research. I have taken over support of iPlaylist Importer, with blessings from trixmoto, and am in process of implementing full unicode support in the upcoming iPlaylist Importer 1.7. But, just in case somebody wants...

Re: iPlaylist Importer 1.6 - Updated 25/05/2008

Another point is that the script always check all files at the playlist with the library but if you often sync your iTunes Plalists with MM it would be nice to skip this in some cases! Hi Pauli, Can you expand upon this a bit more? I think I understand what you are saying, I'd just like to better u...

I've responded to your PMs, certainly happy for you to take up the mantle on this one, and I'll help where I can. Thanks, trixmoto, and hats off to you for the creation of this very great script! I'll post the update in another day or two - we are just trying to decide on best venue, and format, fo...

Re: 1286 Unfound script Sub gives misleading error [6355]

Thanks very much for reporting this bug.

It just bit me (my first time working with VBScript in MM) and really had me baffled (and wasting time) until I found this report.

Too bad its been 5 years since you reported it and is still a problem!

MM v. 4.1.7.1741

Yep. I've gone ahead and fixed the problem by using ADODB.Stream to read iTunes playlist as UTF-8.

I'll wait a bit to see if trixmoto wants to publish my fix, otherwise I'll upload the source code here in a day or two.

Re: iPlaylist Importer 1.6 [MM2+3]

After more than 10 hours invested in this, unfortunately I have to report that I have failed. VBScript simply cannot read UTF-8 files, which is what this XML file is, only UTF-16. I spent many hours working on binary level conversion and was having some success, but unfortunately I just can't make ...

Re: Newly-imported tracks default to ratings "bomb" [#2147]

Seeing that there has been non progress on improving MM POPM support, I just did a search to see if any other players are doing it and found the following on the Banshee Media Player list: ID3v2 Popularimeter (Ratings+Playcount) import/export http://banshee-media-player.2283330.n4.nabble.com/PATCH-I...

Re: Newly-imported tracks default to ratings "bomb" [#2147]

I have Windows 7 and WMP 12. In win 7 (probably XP as well) you can right click an mp3 file > Properties > Details tab. You can change mp3 tags there.
