Playlist Script

Post by jonmiz »

I am trying to automate a process I have to do just about every day at my job. Basically I need a script that can take an existing playlist, rip mp3 copies, auto-increment the track numbers to the playlist order, then have it exported to a new folder on my desktop using the playlist name as the folder name. I have looked through scripts and there doesn't really seem to be anything like this out there. I figured this might be relatively easy to script since all the requisite ingredients already exist, just the actual sequence of events would need to be written. I unfortunately am not a programmer by any means. Is anybody out there willing to help me?

Can't you just use the convert tool and include <AutoNumber> in the file name?

That script sounds great if that would really work. I would be interested in that, for sure.

There is No Need for Script, you only need to do is:
1. Right click on desired playlist
2. There is Two Ways to do that:
-- a. Auto-Organize Files*
-- b. Tools -> Convert Audio format**
3. OK

* == Auto-Organize Playlist
Auto-Organize Playlist to copy files to other destination

Copy tracks from playlist to different path and convert to desired format

NOTE: in Both Settings I used example filename mask E:\<Playlist>\<Auto Number> - <Artist> - <Title>

Peke -

This is a very clever solution, though it doesn't do exactly what I need it to do. While renaming the file names to include the order number does in fact work in terms of creating a custom order for the files, the web application I work with actually uses the metadata tags to show the correct order online. I was so excited to see the auto increment script, but I'd like to integrate it into this process if possible. I spoke with my designer and he might be able to reprogram it to use a three digit numeral, but we'll have to see what he says.

One other thing, I have noticed that whenever I do the "Convert to Destination" it tends to copy a few jpegs of my album art. I think I have a setting that makes a jpeg of the album art in the same directory, which I like, but I don't want to have copies made of these files when ripping MP3's. Any suggestions?

Thanks again for your reply.

When Conversion is done I'm certain that you can use Auto-tag from Filename on destination to retrieve Order number to any of Custom Tags "<Custom ?> - <Skip>" and even to some of standard Tags like <BPM> which is mostly unused.
