My "Backup" script backups up the whole database and has the option to include all playlists as M3Us or do the same export as this script. This script creates a separate database which includes the criteria for the auto-playlists, it does not store the manual playlists. It was also written before my "Backup" script! :)

Ideally i have a node a playlist node (Called Squeezebox)for my squeezebox with playlists i want exported when MM3 closes. I want this to happen to the same directory.

If it is alright Trixmoto to Configure your script to my purposes, Could anyone give me some guidance on changing the script to suit my purposes.

So Export PLaylist node called Squeezebox and it's child nodes to a directory on closing MM.

Any help much appreciatted espiaccaly by the Squeezebox MM3 community.

This script only copies the auto playlist criteria into a separate database. Try one of the many export m3u style scripts that exist on the forum.

I just installed the latest Backup Playlists, but got an error message when I tried to use it:

Error: 'LiteX' could not be installed.

I'm using MM v.3.02.1134.

The script uses "XZip.dll" which it will have put in your Scripts folder and tried to register. Because you are using Vista (right?) this has failed - try manually registering it by right-clicking on a command prompt icon and selecting "run as administrator" and then typing "regsvr32 <path>\Scripts\XZip.dll" where <path> is the path to your Scripts folder.

I'm actually using XP Pro, SP2. I'm not home right now, but I will try your suggestion as soon as I am. Or does the fact tha I'm using XP change anything?

Thanks.

Well you won't be able to right click and "run as administrator" but you should still try typing "regsvr32..." into a command prompt.

Okay, so I tried running that command through the command prompt, as follows:

regsvr32 C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\XZip.dll

but each time I do that, it comes back with "LoadLibrary(C:\Program") failed. Could not be found

Am I doing something wrong?

Yes, surround the path with quotes:

regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Scripts\XZip.dll"

Hello,

I have 2 mediamonkey db's and want to export the playlists from one (that was created with file share N:\) and want to import it into my new DB (\\fileserver\media\music)

When I backup the original file everything seems to work but when I restore I only get a small subset of the original playlists. At first I thought it was due to nesting so I moved everything down to the base level but that made no difference

I am running Vista and the latest version of MM3 with your 2.1 script

Thanks,

Buddy

This script only exports auto-playlists. You can export regular playlists via Tools | Scripts | Export all playlists...

Hello Nohitter,

Thanks for the response, is there any way to import the files once they are exported?

Thanks again,

Buddy

The same way you import tracks, just make sure "m3u" is checked as a file type to scan for.
