    Question Play list maker?

    Does anyone know a program that will take songs in a certain directory and make a .m3u playlist out of them automatically?

    ie. just run the program and there's your playlist created new in a certain dir.

    It should have nothing to do with winamp.. just a simple exe or something.

    Wish I could code.

    No, no. That uses winamp. I don't want it to have anything to do with winamp. Just make the list and exit.

    dos dir does the trick. try something like this:

    dir/s c:\dir\*.mp3 > file.m3u

    that should work fine

    I did a quick google search and the first result was this
    www.sassner.com/mp3


    I downloaded it and it works well. all you do is run the program, select the directory in which you have the mp3's, then click "add recursive" which selects all the mp3's in that folder and then save the playlist. that easy.

    Thumbs up

    I coded a quick VB program to do just this. I'm currently updating it to have more features like recurse all directories under it and make m3us, recurse all directories but store m3u in base dir, etc. If you'd like a copy, email me at [email protected]

    nipkick: Ya, I know about that but it doesn't make a proper playlist.

    Adam F: I tried that program... but I need it to be completely automatic. Just the execution of one file. I know... I'm picky.

    schrodos,
    if you use dir /s /b /od c:\your_dir\*.mp3 > c:\your_dir\allmp3s.m3u will create a playlist of artists and albums in alphbetical order. The songs in each folder will be in order of creation from earliest to latest. If you use something like Audiograbber to rip your CDs, then they will be in the correct order.
