Multiple track Properties Playlists

Post by chrisjj » Wed Apr 29, 2009 5:00 am

It would be nice if Properties Playlists worked on multiple tracks. I.e. if Multiple track Properties showed Playlists. I need it to find e.g. which playlists are using tracks from a given Location path.

adding a column that shows what playlists a track is on is now a wishlist item - to show that you want this feature in a new mediamonkey version, please vote for it here:

oh, and there is indeed a script that saves that information to a custom field while we wait for this to be an official mm feature:

That's good, but note it does not meet this requirement, though could possibly

You might try MagicNodes - it's got significant flexibility and may be able to do this.

Thanks, but IIRC MagicNodes lists tracks not playlists.

Understood - but your request was

and I believe you can create a MagicNode to show playlists and location paths. Both playlists and paths are fields that can be used in constructing the node. So you could build a mask that shows

Code: Select all

Your Custom Node
  Location Path 1
    Playlist 1
       Tracks
    Playlist 3
       Tracks
  Location Path 2
    Playlist 1
       Tracks
    Playlist 2
       Tracks
or

Code: Select all

Your Custom Node
  Playlist 1
    Location Path 1
       Tracks
    Location Path 2
       Tracks
  Playlist 2
    Location Path 1
       Tracks
    Location Path 3
       Tracks
If that's not what you're looking for, that's ok, just trying to help. :-?

Wow. I'd missed that - would indeed be useful. Thanks.
