I've created a utility for editing Frodoplayer music playlists and database from a machine not running Frodoplayer. Why, you ask? So none of us have to sit in our cold cars customizing playlists on tiny 7" LCD's!
What it does:
Add new music to Frodoplayer
Edit or create new playlists
Edit your Favorites menu
How to use it:
1) Copy files from your carputer
Copy MediaLib.mdb from Frodoplayer's install folder2) Press "Load Frodo Database" button to load the db
Copy any playlists you want to edit from the Playlist folder under Frodoplayer
3) Edit/Create Playlists
Press the button of your choosing4) Add new files
Double click files to add/remove, or use the buttons at the bottom
Press the Add Files button.5) Copy files back to Frodoplayer (MediaLib, any edited playlist files, and new music files)
It will ask you for the location of the files.
Note that when you have finished, you must copy those files (not the selected folder) to your carputer's Media folder (defined by the DB_ROOT parameter in Frodoplayer.ini). A reminder popup will be displayed when you exit.
6) Start Frodoplayer! (no need to Sync/Build the database)
Beta Test Notes:
The program works well for me, but then again, I made it! So, please test it out and reply here with any bugs, feature requests, or other comments. You may also want to back up your MediaLib database and any playlists you edit.
The Console window has been left enabled on purpose - if you see any exceptions, copy the console output and send to me in a PM.
