I'm not sure if this might be better served by a separate app entirely, but might be handy if it's incorporated into sPlaylistmaker as well.-Xennon (April 13, 2015, 10:09 PM)

Correct, this is better suited to a file renaming application.

I can usually get the correct names into a text file (1 per line) to match the media files so having some way to automatically merge the correct names onto the existing files would save a lot of renaming work.
I have a file renaming utility that can do this albeit in a clumsy way - maybe you could find a elegant and simple solution?-Xennon (April 13, 2015, 10:09 PM)

When I want to do freestyle renaming like this, I use one of two programs (depending on how fancy I need to get with the text editing): SpeedRenamer and Freename

Note that SpeedRenamer's website is in German but the program is in English.

Thanks, I'll check out those 2 apps - they might be easier than the one I currently use.

Was surprised to find a bit of functionality missing, specifying the filename of the playlists based on customized variables such as Artist, Album, Folder, etc etc.  Right now it will automatically name the file based on folder but that's it.  Being able to put something like "%1_%2_%3" into the playlist filename field, with %1=Artist, %2=Album and %3=Folder you can completely autogenerate the filenames to include multi-CD albums.  Right now if I have something like /Artist/Album/CD1 and I autogenerate playlist names based on folders it will name the playlist 'CD1' which is about as useless and can be when I have 500 folders named CD1 :)

While I won't argue with you that sPlaylistMaker is pretty simplistic, please keep in mind that it was written as Unicode-capable clone of the following app:

If I'm not mistaken, I think the following app will cover your custom variable needs:

Hi there!

First of all, thank you very much for this extremely useful program.

I am using it now for about 4 days, and i am impressed how fast and configurable to any possible needs it is.
I also like the clean & lean look of your tools.

I have one request though, would it be possible to put a character in front of the name of the .m3u? (maybe trough the .ini file?)

The thing is when i drop the root-folder with all my my soundtracks into sPlayListMaker, it makes all the playlists for all albums in the corresponding folders. Which is good so far.
The .m3us have now the names of the folder of the album. (e.g. "Inception.m3u")

Now if there are 20 (or more) mp3s in that album, the .m3u is somewhere down there between all the mp3s.
(mostly waaay down there, because the .mp3s are mostly named with the tracknumbers in front, and therefore the .m3u is almost everytime on the bottom or somewhere in the middle of all the .mp3s.)

What i then do is i put a ! in front of the name of the .m3u, so it is always on top of the folder, and i can doubleclick it without scrolling down &  searching for the .m3u.
e.g. "Inception.m3u"  -->  "!Inception.m3u" (can be done with a mass-renamer)

But now unfolds another problem.

I cant drop the root-folder where all my soundtracks are stored into sPlayListMaker again, because the programm will create a new .m3u (without the ! ) for all albums in there,
because its thinking there is no .m3u for all the albums.

So would it be possible for you to implement some kind of "put one character in front of the generated .m3u-filename"-function?
maybe in the .ini-file: "PlaylistName=+!" or something like that.

I just hope i didnt overlooked any function of your programm, which already allows me to do this.

Sorry for my poor english, and apologies for this wall of text, but i didnt know how i should make my request clear simpler. ;)

And another thing which interests me .. if I can humbly ask which programming language do you use?

Regards .. Sempfmaus ;)
