News Aug 1 - Now opens directly to pmusic (mostly)
and begins playing the list

News Aug 2 - Now opens directly to popular music players
and can right click on symbolic links

News Aug 4 - Now restrains the number of
audio players to those installed on your computer




I've written a right click application ( with some code from stu90)
to help make playlists in Pmusic.

I've found that it's easier to use this method

Instructions

1) install the program create-m3u available in this post.

2) Use Rox filer to right click on folder (or entire partition)
containing some music files. Select from right click menu (see image)
and m3u file will be created. (There's probably a maximum number
of song files but I haven't checked. I believe Zigbert told me
that about one thousand songs in a playlist is possible??? )
Your default text editor is launched to give you an opportunity
to edit the list if you wish, but I find the list is reasonably
accurate. It shouldn't need much editing.

There will be underscore in m3u file name if
there is whitespace in name of folder.

Keep the depth of search to 1 folder for max speed,
but 2 or 3 works fine as well.


3) The m3u file will be located in /root. Now launch pmusic
and use file picker on left side or launch Bookmarks.
One of the Bookmarks is home folder.

4) Find an empty playlist (There's lots of them) Laughing

5) One click of button at bottom of window to quickly
make a playlist. It begins playing immediately.
A nice feature Smile

6) You can trash m3u file now. Pmusic has created it's own playlist
in it's hidden config folder in /root

Interesting.
FYI: there is a hidden function 'mkplaylist' in the ffconvert-1.3.

# mkplaylist --help
mkplaylist 0.1
Make play list of multimedia files in a directory.
usage: mkplaylist [PLAYLIST_FORM] (FILES|-f FILELIST)
PLAYLIST_FORM: 'asx', 'pls' or 'm3u'

PostPosted: Wed 01 Aug 2012, 20:10    Post_subject: version 1.2 of create-m3u  

Version 1.2

Now opens directly to pmusic (most of the time)
and begins playing the list


If it doesn't launch pmusic automatically then launch it
form the start menu.

There is one flaw which I discovered while testing
on Lucid puppy (Japanese version)

Namely right click on link doesn't work properly.
I will continue to work on issue. In some puppies the partition
icon in /mnt is a link.

Version 1.3 of create-m3u

1) Now opens directly to popular music players


2) A right click on symbolic link of folder
or partition such as /mnt/home will be treated as if it is a real file.

3) The text of right click menu has been changed to
avoid the mention of pmusic since nearly all music players
can use a m3u playlist.

Great stuff don570 - 1.4 working well here on Exprimo puppy (just created and loaded playlist into pmusic opend and loaded ok here with 1.4?) being able to choose from installed media players is a nice touch. Cool

It sure didn't work very well for me Crying or Very sad
I needed to use the full path to pmusic to
launch it reliably.

This isn't the first time I've noticed a bug in a script and
others don't notice it.

I'm now working on a script that will list the m3u playlists
it finds recursively in a folder and then play them with your
choice of player.

I've started to examine the problem here.

I have now created a playlist player for m3u playlists
Uncheck option in window of create-m3u to create the
playlist in your home folder /root

Then for convenient storage drag the playlist to a folder
such as /root/my-documents/Playlists .
