[Req] Automatic Configurable Playlist Export

Post by Bananahead »

My main use case for Media Monkey is to create playlists for other devices. I store all of my music on a NAS and then create playlists on that NAS for use by a hardware player.
In MM4 there are the following facilities:
Automatically export playlists (from named set) at shutdown.
Paths in playlist files : Relative and Unix.
How do I do this with MM5 ?

MM4
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:326, Massive Attack - Girl I Love You
../../../FLAC/Massive Attack/Heligoland/04. Girl I Love You.flac
#EXTINF:453, Daniel Avery - Sensation
../../../FLAC/Daniel Avery/Song for Alpha/05 Daniel Avery - Sensation.flac
#EXTINF:411, Kraftwerk - Sex Object
../../../FLAC/Kraftwerk/Techno Pop/06. Sex Object.flac

MM5
Z:\FLAC\Massive Attack\Heligoland\04. Girl I Love You.flac
Z:\FLAC\Daniel Avery\Song for Alpha\05 Daniel Avery - Sensation.flac
Z:\FLAC\Kraftwerk\Techno Pop\06. Sex Object.flac

In MMW4 this is done through a Third Party Addon, such an Addon hasn't been ported to or created for MM5.

Hi,

Same problem for me,

I am using Minimserver/Bubbleupnp for reading the exported playlists from mediamonkey.
I would very much like to have this function back in MMW5

Hi, can you please elaborate which feature are you referring/missing ?

Do you mean the native/vanila (already implemented) MM5 menu > File > Create Reports > Export all playlists... ?
i.e. to adjust it to relative paths rather than absolute ?

Or are you referring a MM4's third party addon ?

Hi Ludek
It's a third party addon
http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/Export ... bNodes.htm

Export all playlists creates a bit of a mess for me because it actually creates duplicates.

Ludek,
MM5 generates for each song one line with driveletters and backslashes.
What I need is the way MM4 generated the playlistfiles, just like Bananahead wrote:
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:326, Massive Attack - Girl I Love You
../../../FLAC/Massive Attack/Heligoland/04. Girl I Love You.flac
#EXTINF:453, Daniel Avery - Sensation
../../../FLAC/Daniel Avery/Song for Alpha/05 Daniel Avery - Sensation.flac
#EXTINF:411, Kraftwerk - Sex Object
../../../FLAC/Kraftwerk/Techno Pop/06. Sex Object.flac
So slashes in stead of backslashes, no driveletters and '#EXTINF:' label in front of the lines.
I think this is the 'extended M3U' specification, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M3U
This was working fine in MM4, without extra addon.
