foosion sorry for that I meant to ask if the component will be released when a new version of foobar2000 is released or if it can/will be released separately when you are finished?

foosion, I am wondering whether the implentation of limiting the size of a playlist is going well. (I hope it's not much trouble now (mentioned last in June); I'm itching for a "100 Most Played" autoplaylist.)

what should this help? my configuration is saved but foobar crashes or will be killed on shutdown and after the next start all autoplaylists are away while the rest of foobar looks like everytime and is set to the same parameters like everytime.
Before reattaching itself to an existing playlist on startup, the autoplaylist component checks if the playlist name is the one it remembers. I wonder whether you are using this component that messes with the names of playlists based on their contents (foo_playlist_name_enhanced or whatever it is called).

I also have this problem when foobar crash a time by time, and i don't have foo_playlist_name_enhanced installed.

  My comment got ignored so I guess my answer is nothing's changed since June. Well, thanks anyway for a great plugin that makes foobar infinitely better by empowering its users with so much more control.

Just wondering, if I do use foo_playlist_name_enhanced, does this mean autoplaylist is incompatible with it? Or is there anything to make autoplaylist remember the 'enhanced' playlist name so rescanning the ML after every restart is unnesscary? Thx

Is there a way to use $directory(), $left(), etc. functions in the query? This is the query I can't get it to accept:
NOT $left($directory(%_path%,1),2) HAS "VA" AND %genre% IS "Post-Rock"

By the way, this is the most useful plugin for foobar, I can't wait to see it improved... nice work

Edit: Nevermind, I saw an earlier post and figured it out, this works:
(NOT "[$left($directory(%_path%,1),2)]" IS "VA") AND (the rest of my query)

This plugin severely kills my foobar startup time. I have some playlists that query groups of artists, like "artist is blah or artist is blahblah or artist is blarge" in a very large list.

With a fresh install of foobar 0.9.3 along with my current db and no autoplaylist plugin, startup time is 0:04s but when I add the autoplaylist plugin the startup time jumps up to 2m:45s. Any chance the new version will be better at this?

There's an easy way.  Go to your main library PL, sort by play count, find the 100th song's play count (=xx).  Make an autoplaylist with PLAY_COUNTER GREATER xx.

Half-ass.  But it works.  Depending on how dynamic your listening habit is... This shoud last you about a month or two before having to re-edit it.

Thanks for the advice, I thought of the same thing. It'd be nice, though, to have that feature, especially for other kinds of statistics. (Say I wanted a sampling of songs that are rated 5. I'd want a limit of 100, RATING EQUALS 5, and sorted randomly.) That feature would give us more options/control.

I've found a bug... if you use a lot of really big autoplaylists (I think I'm the only one) the shutdown time takes a lot longer, and if you force the program to close (windows automatically does this during shutdown) there is roughly an 80% chance that a whole bunch or maybe all of your autoplaylists will disappear. It's happened to me twice now.

Is it possible to sort recursive? F.ex. Sort by %artist% then by %year% ?

Are there any documentation on the syntax other than just the lousy help button?

And... still 1.0 - Any progress on the "new" version?
Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P

I was bored so I've written a little at the wiki.

@odyssey: You can check it out if you haven't found the answer to your question about sorting.

PS: Please check what I wrote as maybe there're mistakes in it.

Feature request:

As you develop the new version, any chance of adding access to tags from the now playing track?

Then we could have autoplaylists with e.g.: tracks in the same album, by the same artist etc. etc.
