Clear Track List?

Post by RonSD » Sun Jul 13, 2008 9:48 pm

Is there a way to get MM3 to start with a clear track list?

You can try Trixmoto's Clear Now Playing script. Follow the instructions on how to set it up to clear all.

Yeah. Even though I have the Playlist set to remove each track after it is played, it always leaves the last track in the Playlist.

I often wonder why that is so.

Which settings do you use in the setup portion? I would assume you hve clearplayed set to 1? If so, it appears from my inexperience that clearall would be the best. :-?

Code: Select all

limit = 100		'maximum number of songs to leave in now playing

clearall = 0 		'set to 1 if you wish to clear all files
clearplayed = 0 	'set to 1 if you wish to clear just those before the current
clearextra = 1		'set to 1 if you wish to clear all but the first (limit) songs
'NB. Only one of these options can be set to 1, the rest must be 0

What setup portion are you referring to?

When you installed the Clear Now Playing, did you make any adjustments to the script? The previous post shows the portion which you would adjust. You can open the script in any text editor, ie. notepad. The section is right near the top. If you want to clear the entire now playing list, set clearall to one. and the other two to zero. If you want to clear all but a certain number, set clearextra to one and the other two to zero, and the limit = to the number of tracks you want to keep in the now playing list. If you leave it as it is, it will always clear the now playing list of every track except the first track.

I am not using Clear Now Playing.

But what I am saying is that I have MM set to remove tracks from the Playlist when played.

I have Player > Now Playing set to: "Automatically retain 0 previous tracks in Now Playing".

But it still leaves 1 track behind in the Playlist.

Thanks, nyn. I just tried that, but it seems to only clear the play list. There are some ideas at http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30990 that I may try when I have time.
