SkyDrive to M3U

As addition to recent news about 'cloud' players, here is similar idea of using 'cloud' in preferred player:

script  download link

Script delivers streamable links (from files/folders uploaded to Public folder on SkyDrive - up to 25 GB), which user can redirect to M3U playlist and enjoy in preferred player:

Code: [Select]
cscript /nologo skydrive2m3u.vbs "my_cid_hash" > my_skydrive_tracks.m3u




* cid hash is 16 character string which user can see in browser address-bar while logged on live.com (office tab): "http://cid-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.office.live.com"

** default types are MP3, M4A and OGG, which can easily be changed by editing 'types' variable inside script

It would be very useful but it generates an empty playlist for me. Can anybody confirm if it works

It seems MS did some changes on their services. Links on first post are updated with corrected script.
Also be patient with script depending of amount of tracks of course

Basically this did the fix:

line 29
- Parser(url & "/feed.aspx/.Public")
+ Parser("http://skydrive.live.com/feed.aspx/.Public?cid=" & ARGS.Item(0))

line 100
- WScript.Echo "http://" & XMLDec(match)
+ WScript.Echo Replace("http://" & XMLDec(match), "\/","/")

Ok, now it works.
I also played a little with skydrive and managed to map it as network drive.
To map skydrive you need to enter this url:
https://some_prefix.docs.live.net/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/Backup
if want two or more account the good way is to made different prefixes to be able to login with different credential.

I've tried to put some files from mapped drive into foobar but it takes a lot of time (~5min for  10 files)  to load tracks to playlist and actually get them playing. I don't know why it is so slow. Romor method is faster but it doesn't support id3 tags

Mapping SkyDrive with WebDav address is not such a good idea in your scenario. Foobar in that case downloads whole file before playing that's why it seems slow to your.

As for created playlist by above script, I think I could add EXTM3U tags with folder names, and files as title, but I don't know which player recognizes them without plugin. Perhaps Winamp only, although I'm not sure
