I don't want to strip metadata.

Basically, I like the idea of optimizing JPEGs to take up less space.  I couldn't perceive any difference between RIOT-optimized images + regular JPEGs but the size difference in some cases were up to 70%(!!!).

Does your utility do the same thing?

Hi all,
RIOT:
Fileforum: http://fileforum.bet...on-Tool/1242238434/1
HOME PAGE: http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/


I am currently using RIOT (a program that efficiently optimize images for the Web? ) , but I need a tool that respects folder hierarchy.  RIOT does not currently do that, nor does its plugins.
Anyone have any recommendations that their current program that does?

Mp3tag is the GOD of all mp3 taggers. It is the gold standard IMO

skwire,
You never cease to amaze me.  Thank you! This works out perfectly for me and I don't even have to install/run another exe!

131
I have some ideas for new features skwire,

1) add posibility of default dir to INI, or preferably inside of gui
2) when selecting more than 1 line, it  shows all of the recognized cover arts in the pane on the left.

Hi skwire/wr975,

I was JUST about to ask for this app before browsing this forum.  What are the chances.  I am in dire need of this exact app.

basically, I want to be able to drag and drop 950 folders onto this app (each has folder.jpg inside of it) and have them embed the photo to all of my mp3s, unicode or not and leave tags.

It seems like this will do that, but I can't figure out 1) where to download the compiled exe.  I see the script there but I do not have AHK and would just like a standalone .exe like splaylistwriter and wastenot, etc.

Is this possible?

I don't add this to any of my apps.  Help, Check for Updates will have to do.   

Also got dcupdator. it seems I have a newest wastenot version than the one on the site. rofl

Hi skwire,
Don't know if you're interested, but right click > copy selected paths to clipboard is not functioning on my computer. I have the latest version. I can right click and select the option, but then when I hit ctrl+v or paste, there's nothing in my clippy

Wow, just wow. That just shattered my expectation. The only thing it needs now is "autocheck for updates on startup" and it's golden.
  Also, thanks for mentioning me in credits! Wow!


If I have any more ideas for software, I will definitely let you know. some of your other software has saved my life as well -- spinzip, covart ops, and now splaylistmaker

hey skwire,
is it possible to get the same program that makes NON-UTF8 (regular) m3u files (instead of UTF-8 m3u8 files).  That shouldn't be too difficult right?
Your program is so much faster than createm3u on my machine :D

Hot diggidity! You rule man!

I like the "no empty" playlist behavior (yours) better. I had no idea createm3u made those for empty folders.



I just tried it out. It worked great! file was in utf-8 format.  Just a random question:

do you know why yours is so much cleaner looking than mp3tag? this is what the mp3tag special export function spits out

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:235,Acoustic Alchemy - The Alchemist
01 - The Alchemist.mp3
#EXTINF:236,Acoustic Alchemy - Jamaica Heartbeat
02 - Jamaica Heartbeat.mp3
#EXTINF:265,Acoustic Alchemy - Georgia Peach
03 - Georgia Peach.mp3
#EXTINF:364,Acoustic Alchemy - Playing For Time
04 - Playing For Time.mp3
#EXTINF:277,Acoustic Alchemy - When The Lights Go Out
05 - When The Lights Go Out.mp3
#EXTINF:397,Acoustic Alchemy - Clear Air For Miles
06 - Clear Air For Miles.mp3
#EXTINF:248,Acoustic Alchemy - Fire Of The Heart
07 - Fire Of The Heart.mp3
#EXTINF:244,Acoustic Alchemy - Freeze Frame
08 - Freeze Frame.mp3
#EXTINF:240,Acoustic Alchemy - On The Case
09 - On The Case.mp3
#EXTINF:295,Acoustic Alchemy - Break For The Border
10 - Break For The Border.mp3

what is all that #EXTINF garbage rolf

AWESOME. I was just thinking what a pain it is to have to go through all the steps in mp3tag just to do individual folders. Your program will help for individual entries.!

UPDATE: skwire,

I just found a specific script inside Mp3tag (deep inside their forums) that does EXACTLY what I want! Please devote your time to other much-needed projects.
For anyone else googling for a solution, create an ".mte" file (without the quotes) and post the following inside: 

$filename(%_folderpath%%_directory%.m3u8,utf-8)#EXTM3U
$loop(%_filename_ext%)#EXTINF:%_length_seconds%,%artist% - %title%
%_filename_rel%
$loopend()

then save the file into mp3tag's  /export directory.  Export all your mp3s with this script and you're done. It did 100GB of m3u8 playlsits in 15 seconds. rofl!

142
I just wanted to say THANK YOU to skwire for making this app.

My 100GB of MP3 collections (80% of with no tags, 100% with no cover art). 3 days continuous work later, it's all cleaned up, thanks to your handy app

If SnapList won't cover your needs, I can write you a CreateM3U clone that will handle Unicode characters.

rofl. holy shit. skwire, you are a living god.

skwire, could you do the following:

Basically, make it exactly the SAME design/everything as createm3u
-portable (.ini or config or whatever)
-give user the option of m3u (ANSI) or m3u8 (UTF) (or maybe even "create m3u8 if non-english/ Latin-1 characters found?)
-each m3u/m3u8 file is placed inside of the folder
-each m3u/m3u8 file is named after the folder
-recursive (I can drop /mp3s on there and all of the subfolders get m3u8/m3us)
-drag and droppable
-be able to process folders that are  "sent" to it via sendto menu.
-no prompts after dragging

I can't think of anything else

m3u8 files are basically unicode-friendly versions of .m3u playlist files.
The different (AFAIK) between m3u and m3u8 files is: m3u is ANSI  m3u8 is UTF-8 files compatible with foreign languages.

In my experience you can save m3u files as UTF-8 and they still work with the likes of Winamp or AIMP2.

I have written a tiny command-line utility to create a file called playlist.m3u from an alphabetically sorted list of all mp3 / ogg / wav files in a folder. The resulting file extension is m3u, but the file is encoded as UTF-8 if any of the filenames contains trans-ASCII characters. I use it with Total Commander, because it lets me easily execute a command-line program in a specific folder. Let me know if it is something you could find useful!

Hi tranglos,
yea, I would assume winamp would take m3u as UTF-8. It's too bad I don't use TC.  I used it a while back but gave it up for the best file manager yet -- XYplorer.

Plus, I would need the following criteria:

UPDATE:rofl
 
answered my own request, BUT we could still use a program like create3mu that does this seamlessly.  With this script, I have to open m3u tag, load up ALL of the folders into mp3tag (takes a long time).


One can use mp3tag using the following export configuration to do exactly what I want:
1) Relative file name
2) m3u8 or m3u file extension
3) -directoryname-.m3u8 (or m3u) file naming structure
4) 1 in each folder, respecting folder structure
5) UTF-8 format

SnapList will do what you want.



Hi skwire,
long time no see.

Did you mean SnapPlay?  I didn't see an option for m3u8, only m3u

I have searched ALL over the web and I have not found a single program that will do this in a batch fashion. I am certain a lot of (domestic & international) users will find this very handy!

http://lostfound.raum108.de/create_m3u/
CreateM3U 0.1.1
Create .m3u playlists with drag&drop of files and folders. For each folder a single .m3u file is created named after this folder. It will not replace already existing playlists of that name. The generated playlists do not contain EXTM3U information because a simple .m3u is nothing more than a text file with a list of file names per line. The initial tool for this task for me was a batch file ;-) As the generated playlists only include filenames without any path, as they are located along with the media files, they can be moved together with the files, for example for portable mp3 player usage.



Basically, I want to do every CreateM3U does, but with making m3u8 files. m3u8 files are basically unicode-friendly versions of .m3u playlist files.
The different (AFAIK) between m3u and m3u8 files is: m3u is ANSI  m3u8 is UTF-8 files compatible with foreign languages.


Basically, createm3u is the perfect program in every way, except it doesn't make the files m3u8 (UTF-8) format so my mp3 Winamp player skips over ? characters. :(

I just wanted chime in.  I am a lurker here but found your utility while googling for this solution.

skwire - god dammit, you are my hero today.  I have been looking for such a utility for a long, long time.  What's even better is that a) it's free b) portable! c) lightweight.

Feature suggestions: I know 7z is out of the question,  but can we get a .RAR option? :D
ZIP works for some things, RAR works for others!
