  • Who wants Playlist support?

    I previously asked about support for "Playlists" to which coyote responded.

    If there is a big demand of user to implement the winamp playlist support I will put this in the ToDo list. But it will be a big job.
    I'm not asking just because it's a nice feature to have, since coyote said it's a lot of work. I have spent a great deal of time customizing ID3 tags (genre, mood, tempo,situation,preference) so that I can create various playlists via Musicmatches AutoDJ feature, it's a shame not being able to use them.

    I understand the Folder method is easier, but it's obviously not very flexible.

    Does anyone else want/need support for playlists?

    I would like to see playlists support or atleast at a bare minimum the option to "Add" and "Replace" music to the list not just replace it. maybe like if you just tap the enter button it adds the directory or individual file to the list but if you hold enter then it repaces the current list with the new entry,

    BTW great program! and I hope your kid gets better quickly.

      Custom playlists are definatly needed! To have a playlist now I would have to create a folder with the actuall songs in it???

      Wow, it is not too efficient having the same song saved several times on the hard drive - I'll be out of hard drive space a lot sooner, not to mention what a pain it will be to manually copy the songs onto the "playlist" folder.

                    I think playlists would be great! If there was a way we could support both .m3u and .wpl (Windows Media Player 9.0) format playlists, that would be even better . . .

                      Ok, you have won

                      At this time I have already implemented the Winamp playlist support, I work now on a module to create and modify playlist inside Mediacar

                      Do you want a new version with the playlist support without the playlist gestion module or I wait to have finished the gestion module before ?

                        Thank you, very much.

                        I generate playlists on my homePC and then send them to CarPc folder, so I don't need to generate or edit the list while in the car. However, I'll defer to the majority.

                        Thanks again.

                            coyote, what is the function of the "gestion module"? Feel free to take you time with this, I remember you saying that it was a lot of work . . .

                            I think being able to select a pre-defined playlist (.m3u/.wpl) and the ability to select random individual tracks to make a "current playlist" (like a cue-it-up function) would be really awesome. I don't think it should be a requirement to be able to save multiple playlists (other than the single cue-it-up playlist) from within MediaCar.

                            Put another way, MediaCar could have its own internal playlist which is continously modifiable (should auto save when alterred) and could also support externally created playlists (like from Windows Media Player or from WinAmp) . . .

                            Your application is definitely the best one for a car-pc I've ever seen. Thank you for sharing it with us all!
