Soft Playlists 2011-02-05
-added Last.fm custom playlist functionality, creating a new one must be done on www.last.fm for now

IMPORTANT: For the playlist generation features to work, the foobar2000 Media Library must include at least one folder with music, the more the better!

Can create different Last.fm related playlists:
->loved tracks of a single user, multiple users, friends or neighbours.
->recent tracks of a single user, multiple users, friends or neighbours.
->top tracks of a single user, multiple users, friends or neighbours over different periods.
->top tracks of an artist.
->top tracks of artists similar to an artist.
->top tracks with certain tag.
->tracks similar to a track.
Can also...
-love, unlove, ban and unban a track on your Last.fm account.
-add a track to a custom playlist on your Last.fm account.
-save and load XSPF playlists (make playlists without hard paths). This makes it possible to easily share playlists with other people. Also when you restructure your library (change location of your music files), these playlists will continue to work.

topic title name is too large as the menu item name (and shouldn't be in "File" instead of "Library") 
and entering the name in advanced preferences is not very comfort
how about adding matches for artist similar charts (like foo_scrobblecharts which is now problematic component)?

Yeah did't know it wasn't possible to have long titles , if someone wants to fix it please do.

Library is more logical to me

Was a quick way to add the settings.

Started from the foo_scrobblecharts code, I couldn't get the code to compile, and because I wanted to learn everything (It's the first time I write a plugin), I wrote this from 0.
Normally I will include as much as possible that has something to do with soft playlists.

Didn't know I wanted a component like this, but now I do. Thanks!  Would be even better if, in a future version, functionality to easily (not having to open the preferences dialogue) grab loved tracks from other users (perhaps a dialogue offering to grab lists from your friends on last.fm?) could be added.

Yes that was the first plan, but my knowledge in that domain (win gui stuff) is too little at the moment.

New version:

Soft Playlists 2009-11-13.2
http://telin.ugent.be/~jdebock/foobar2000/...ftplaylists.dll

Changed: Optimized the library querying code, should work faster for big libraries and path preferences.

Great component! Exactly what i was looking for.

Keep up the good work, adding some new features (playling band's charts and stuff) would be nice too.

This is great start.
Disregard the constabulary.

Excellent! This kind of automation is why we have computers in the first place.

Some suggestions:
- shorter menu item label, such as "Generate last.fm Loved playlist". The username is implied, as I'm the one using it.
- move preferences to the Tools item, instead of Advanced. They're not advanced options, they're just plain ol' component prefs.

There's a lot of potential for expanding the functionality, such as the ability to create playlists from other last.fm sources, with relevant options; generating from other users through a quick dialog window, etc etc.

works great
now can we expect similar artist charts: artist.getSimilar / if library match artist.getTopTracks / library match / sort all by playcount - it seems easy?

foo_scrobblecharts actually already does what you're asking:

Indeed it is more or less a contination, a much speedier one.
Top Charts was already included, Loved Tracks not. And foo_scrobblecharts has been put on the crash list.

True. I also like how this component doesn't automatically start playing the playlist like scrobblecharts did.

However, if this component will be a full replacement, I might also make a request for a "sort" option... Which just sorts the selected artist tracks by their placement in their last.fm top tracks list. This is a handy feature for quickly finding that artists most popular songs when they are already in a playlist.

Ok, will have a look what the problems are, is there some info on what has changed or what I should change to get it working again?

The preferences API changed to work in the new/traditional Apply/OK/Cancel mode. But the updated SDK is not out yet, so nothing you can do now anyway.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.
