A way to show all files under a node

Post by guapo » Sat Oct 20, 2018 4:39 am

Hi!
I would like to have a way to show all files that are part of the playlists stored under a node in the library. Meaning, a way to display the sum of all playlists, with tracks being displayed multiple times if they are part of multiple playlists.
Even though you think that its not useful, let me explain why: I am DJing and store tracks that I find interesting in monthly work-playlists. Also, the playlists I was DJing are stored under the same node "DJ". I would be interested to see the whole content of this node, because the sum in there is a pre-selected collection that would make it much easier to find the danceable songs.
best, matthias

Hi,

With the addon of MM, the data is exported to an EXCEL file for further processing. Here you can sort, group ...
Maybe help

Hi, thanks for the reply! The add-on just allows to analyse the content of the node's playlists, right? I would like to display the songs and play them. Intuitively I would create an autoplaylist that "contains" the files part of the node. Additionally with a similar option that your xls file has, namely the column "Playlist Name".

This question was already issued some time ago (https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=52869), with the reply of Lowlander "If you want playlists to inherit you already can using AutoPlaylists and criteria Playlist." The problem here is that Im adding every month a new nested playlist under that node. So in order to keep it up-to-date, I have to manually check the new playlist in the Autoplaylist criteria...

ja ich spreche deutsch.
for the sake of the wishlist, Im just gonna answer in english. yes, the script is doing what I intend to have, however, as I understand, I gotta manually execute it whenever I've changed something in any playlist within the node. for manual purposes, I can easily make an autoplaylist and check all playlists given in the node (plus, monthly add the new work list into the autoplaylist).
I was searching for an autoupdating list...
thank you for your efforts, man!
best, matthias
