    Smart PlayLists (aka Smart Views) Plugin - Enables querying of your music library

    I've created a plugin to support Smart Playlist, also known as Smart Views in Winamp. It uses Winamp5's medialibrary and allows you to query Winamp5's database for songs by genre, artist, date added, etc.

    Requirements:
    Winamp5 (download)
    activewinamp plugin (download)
    After installing Winamp5, make sure to load up its media library. It can take some time if you got a large library. Also, configure RR to use the new winamp5 if not already pointing to the right winamp path.

    Plugin Download (Also Attached):
    http://rapidshare.com/files/44129471...tsRRPlugin.zip

    I've also included a very ugly mod to the default road runner skin, BMV2, to use the new smart playlists. See the readme files in the zip above on how to install everything. Hopefully, if you guys like it, someone will make a real skin or modify their existing ones to take advantage of this feature. Its pretty simple to use, just map the command to a button on the skin.

    Lets call this a beta release for now. If you have any issues or feedback, let me know.

    Here's another skin patch for Moahdib's FSR Skin. This is the skin I use in my car. It's pretty slick, but resource heavy too.

    After installing his skin, just replace the menu.txt file in the skin's folder. This will modify the existing audio sidebar buttons to point to smart playlists instead. Modify the menu.txt file to use your own custom queries and/or restore some of the original quick links to GPS/weather/etc.

    Thumbs up Thank You!

    Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU!

    This is the best thing to hit RR in a LONG time! I have always wanted a database based search in Road Runner!

    I took it one step further. I added some code to a button, that pop's up the On Screen Keyboard. You can then type a search string such as a portion of a song name ect.

    It is Soooooo much faster than the crappy Hard Drive search! Searching for a song with RR's standard search took like 30 seconds or longer to scan my 25,000 MP3's. This does it in like a second flat!

    Fantastic work on implementing this in Road Runner!

    John,

    It's nice to have you active in the forum again.

    Does this mean that we can expect a DigitalFX patch in the near future?

    TJ,

    Some of us have trouble with Winamp 5 in RR. Do you know if this will work with 2.95?
