Ludek,
Thank you for implementing this. I have installed it in v5.0.4.2692 and found the commit dialog to be intuitive, although it would be great if there was a way to configure the filename and location as a set option so I don't have to browse to the designated folder each time I want to export.
However, after 5 minutes, the library is still exporting, and it never used to take this long in the previous v4 iteration. I have 13000 files and maybe 200 playlists. The status bar along the bottom shows "Exporting (filename and path)" but I see no colored status bar along with it so I have no way to tell if it's incrementally progressing or not. I'll leave it open for another 15 minutes but I don't think it should be taking that long...?

Update: after 15 more minutes, there was still no advancement of the status bar. I terminated the process, closed MM5, waited a few seconds and reopened, where I can confirm the status bar is working properly for other tasks.

If you need a log file to examine, please advise.

Hmm,
you seem to be right, it does not work with 5.0.4 builds, only with latest 5.1.0+ builds and 2024 builds..

I'll look why it does not work with 5.0.4 -- although it is probably seamless, because we are going to release it as bundled addon with the newest builds..

EDIT:
ok, I added one new function to the API, so yes, you will need to install 3021 build ( https://www.mediamonkey.com/beta/MediaM ... _Debug.exe ) plus the addon installed from my DropBox link

Success! It worked as expected on 3021 and took about the same amount of time as it used to on v4.

Thank you for your quick response.

Would you please modify this feature to re-create the folder structure with the MM5 playlists in the "iTunes.xml" file? The old MM4 script "export to iTunes.xml" does this. To be more specific, don't append the folder name(s) to the front of the playlist name and re-create the playlist folder hierarchy in the iTunes.xml file. This is the very last thing that I am still using MM4 to do - export to iTunes.
