Need a script to shorten long tracks

Post by AlexV » Thu Mar 13, 2008 5:47 am

Hello everybody,

Do you have a script that would automatically crossfade a long track after, say 3 minutes... and play the next one ?

Does that make sense ? Why do I need this ? Well, long tracks are boring during a party... I don't want to play a 6-minute song !

Thanks !

Alex

A script certainly could be written to do this, but I don't think there is one at the moment.
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.

Would be nice indeed.

Sometimes tracks at the end of albums go on for ever before a 'hidden' song/noise is played. Would be nice if certain songs could be shortened.

Couldn't you use an autoplaylist for parties to limit tracks to a certain length?

Code: Select all

Track length (seconds) <= '240'
This limits tracks to 4 minutes or less.
