Hi, Sempfmaus, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   :)

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?)-Sempfmaus (March 08, 2016, 06:51 AM)

See below for a new version with your added feature request.

Sorry for my poor english, and apologies for this wall of text, but i didnt know how i should make my request clear simpler. ;)-Sempfmaus (March 08, 2016, 06:51 AM)

Your written English is wonderful  :Thmbsup: and much better than many native speakers I know.   ;)

And another thing which interests me .. if I can humbly ask which programming language do you use?-Sempfmaus (March 08, 2016, 06:51 AM)

All my applications are written in AutoHotkey.

v1.1.0 - 2016-03-08
    + Added option to prepend a string to the generated playlist filenames.
      (Thanks, Sempfmaus)

Sempfmaus:
Wow, that was quick!

I have tested the new version, and it works perfectly. :D

Thank you so much for this wonderful programm, i think i would not have any need for any other .m3u-tool ever!
It just does everything i will ever need regarding .m3us. <3

Oh and another thing... the user unc0nnected (two posts above my first) had a question about multi-CD albums.
I know its a bit late, but here is what i do in this situation.

If a album has two discs, i just rename the .mp3s to reflect the cd, e.g. Intromusic.mp3 to CD1_Intromusic.mp3, and put them alltogether in one folder.
Altrough if the album has more than two or three cds, i just rename the folder to something better than CD1.
(Can be easily done with a multi or mass-renamer.)


I also have two copies of sPlayListMaker on my harddisk:
1.) one configured to "No path at all, just the filename" and "Write location: Each Folder" (for single-cd albums and root-folder for all my collections).
2.) another configured to "Relative paths" and "Write location: Root Folder(s) only" (for multi-cd albums).

I have made a link for both to my "SentTo" folder in windows explorer, so i can just rightclick a album and select the appropriate.

So my workflow is like this: rightclick the rootfolder of my collections, select 1.). (All single-cd albums have a .m3u in their folders.)
Then go into the folder, select all the multi-cd folders, rightclick and select 2.). (All multi-cd albums have a .m3u in their root folders.)

This way i have all on just a rightclick, without the hassle to configure sPlayListMaker every time i want to do multi-cd albums.

Hope this helps someone who has this kind of "problem". ^^

Again thanks for the update & i will have a look at AutoHotkey.

Regards .. SempfMaus

Good to hear and thank you for testing.

I daresay most people use something like the following folder structure:

ArtistName
'--> AlbumName1
'--> AlbumName2
'--> AlbumName3
     `--> CD1
     `--> CD2

I do the following:

ArtistName
'--> AlbumName1
'--> AlbumName2
'--> AlbumName3 (CD1)
'--> AlbumName3 (CD2)

Basically, no subfolders for multi-disc albums.

Sempfmaus:
Ah thats also a verry good idea!

But that could end up in a really long folder-structure..

e.g.: "Karajan 1980s Complete DG Recordings - 78 cds" or "Deutsche Grammophon The Originals series - 141 cds".
Ok, that are extreme examples, but your way is viable for me up to 5 cd-packs.

Also with my method i got a .m3u for the whole cd-pack, and i can just doubleclick it & have all the .mp3s in my player, and i often use the shuffle function.

Anyway thanks for the suggestion, always thankful for new ideas. :)

PS: i have heard before from AutoHotkey, but i thought it is just a gui for batch-files. ^^
I will definitive have a look at that .

Hi skwire,
I've been using sPlaylistMaker since its inception and I haven't had any major problems until now.  I am hoping you can figure it out. Using M4A files.

These are the offending files. You'll notice that Directory Lister has the same error in listing as sPlaylistMaker.

Here is director lister's files:

Here is the sPlaylistmaker's m3u file: http://pastebin.com/pDjDR04x

Here is an image of the settings I use:


The problem is that the listing jumps from 10 > 100.  :(
See pic:


I am not having this problem with any other albums.  M4A files do not allow the extra 0's needed  MP3s do, but it's not an option to convert my collection. :(

It may not be 100% sPlaylistMaker's fault. but is there any way to correct this in the program?  I have subscribed to this thread  so I will see replies quickly.

Thank you again for all that you do. It is sincerely appreciated!
