Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: NEMO7538 on 2010-05-03 17:12:01
I am happy to release a new component that let you organize your playlists in a treeview control.

With foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg), you will be able to create folders and hierarchies to arrange and categorize your playlists. All current functions are available by drag & drop or right click on items in the panel.

It can be downloaded here (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_plorg) and is compatible with both DUI and CUI.
Please check this page (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components/Playlist_Organizer_%28foo_plorg%29) for help and additional information.

The click region is only limited to the playlist name. An option to have single click to display would be good as well
Thanks

yes! i've been waiting for a component like this for a long time.
it's a great start, but i think there is work to be done

i would really like to see the ability to assign different colours to different folders
need the ability to double-click on a playlist and have it not just load but also start playing
i'm also noticing issues with the text turning white when selected, which is frustrating

still, i'm looking forward to seeing this develop!

I'll probably add this option later. Can you elaborate on "click region is limited to the playlist name?"

Not in a near future ...

Will be implemented

I you are using DUI, foo_plorg is supposed to mimic the standard colors behaviour (just like other components) unless there is a bug.

This looks very promising.  Can it be developed to have the same functionality as playlist_tree_mod?

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=64623 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=64623)

The developer of that plugin states he doesn't have interest in making it DUI compatible unfortunately.

Playlist tree mod is very good.  I'll start using this.  Playlist management/navigation tools for DUI have been underwhelming to this point.

Finally, I've waited for this for quite some time! =D

Could you make it optional to show how many tracks each playlist contains? It takes up a lot of space:

I am happy to release a new component that let you organize your playlists in a treeview control.

And i am happy you released a component i waited for 4 years ;-)
Thanx for your effort!

And i am glad i do not have to post my suggesstions, as anything that came to my mind is already in your ToDo-List :-)

Just one thing to add:
Renaming a playlist with modifiers (like shift or alt) does not work if the combination of modifier+key is set as a shortcut (works in the original playlist manager)

edited typo

Post by: SpaceAgeHero on 2010-05-03 23:15:03
Thank you!

I was also waiting for something simple like this. Actually I'm still
wondering why it was never implemented by default.

Anyways if you allow me one wish:

If I click a folder with multiple folders/playlists in it, will it be possible that
all songs from all playlists and subfolders will be listed in the playlist view some time?

Edit: Also to choose multiple playlists with ctrl and providing the same behaviour as
described above.
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: Nemphael on 2010-05-03 23:43:52
I noticed something when changing between two panels (In CUI, at least) - each panel has to be configured separately. If you decide to move the panel inside your config, all trees are lost and playlists are put in the "Default" folder again. Would it be possible to create different configs or something, to save one configuration and load it in a new panel? Woah, I hope that made sense... I don't know whether it's intended behavior, but it was kind of annoying.

I have more than seventy playlists at the moment. Playlist Organizer makes it a lot easier to handle them, so thank you for this component.

Two possibly bugs I see so far:foobar2000 1.0.3, Columns UI 0.3.8.5

Post by: smkk on 2010-05-04 05:26:13
Thanks alot for this component, been waiting for years.

Just a few few things which i noticed/would be happy if they got implemented:
- most importantly: right now drag and drop of items from a playlist (playlist view) to the playlist organizer does not seem work
- ability to select multiple folders/playlists with shift or ctrl (for batch drag & drop)
- ability to rename folders/playlists with F2 key
- confirm rename with enter
- ability to remove folders/playlists with del key
- some kind of indicator whether something is a folder or a playlist would be nice
- ability to hide item count
- the item count of the library viewer selection playlist doesn't seem to be updating when browsing the library

But that is just nit-picking, all the functionality is there. Thanks again.

Post by: DustMagnet on 2010-05-04 05:38:12
this procedure I cannot complete because the plugin does not react to pressing 'enter'


Confirmed. The component does accept the new name if you click elsewhere, but pressing Enter is the more intuitive behavior.
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: gob on 2010-05-04 07:21:19
Looks good so far, i like the idea.

A few suggestions:
-custom color for playing playlist.
-clicking options like those used on other playlist managers.
-selecting a panel creates a dotted rectangle on mouse down, and highlights on mouse up. behaviour should be the same as other components.
-pressing enter completes rename operation.
-pressing F2 enters rename operation.

A couple bugs:
-text always seems to be clipped by a few pixels on the right of the title. most noticeable with w's.
-panel appears twice in columns ui layout editor.
-dotted rectangle sometimes breaks and takes on strange colors.

Thanks everyone for the test. I have updated the to do list (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components/Playlist_Organizer_%28foo_plorg%29#Change_Log) to account for bugs and planned improvements.
A new version is available here (http://thx538.free.fr/Foobar/V1.0/Plorg/foo_plorg.zip), with fixes of the following issues :
Please note that using foo_plorg as a standalone (popup) window may lead to loosing part of your playlists organization if some changes (addition, deletion, reordering, ...) are applied with other playlist managers while the window is closed. I tried to make the window startup process more intelligent but it is by nature limited. I would recommend that you use it as a "permanent" panel or UI element rather.
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: watercolor on 2010-05-04 15:53:35
There is some requests.

Playlist name area is not fully. Because playlist name is curtailment in right few pixel.
Please support "Themed appearance" that same columns playlist and library tree. This panel now support only simple color.
In short, Make looks same as Windows 7's explorer like.

Sorry my poor english.
Thank you.

Thanks for the new version, now just missing drag and drop and it will be perfect.

This component should get some kind of award for the best component name.. "foo_plorg"

looking forward to "double-click = activate & play"

If this should get implemented then please optional.

Post by: Robertina on 2010-05-05 03:20:21
Thank you for the update, "Enter" works fine now to complete the creation of new folders.

I am still in a fret that Playlist Organizer can be added as a panel to the (CUI's) toolbar, see my first post in this thread. With the older version it appeared in a subcategory "Panels" twice, with the current once. Is this really intended?
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: Wooops on 2010-05-05 04:07:41
Great! I was looking forward for this as well.
I noticed two minor bugs

Also it seems that the highlighted region color doesn´t disappear after a click in an empty space as in the playlist manager, I really don´t know if it makes any difference to someone but I thought of posting it anyway.

I was going to suggest the same idea as SpaceAgeHero, great to see it in the to do list

controls (nodes) doesn't follow system (vista/7) style


NEMO7538, a few people have mentioned the component does not use the new TreeView from Vista/7. I'm guessing based on your quote and that it is not on your to-do list, the style of TreeView is intentional and not going to change. Yes/no?

Anyway, I like this component and look forward to it maturing. An idea I'll throw into the mix is being able to access the Control context menu when right-clicking a folder.

I will have a look but will need support for testing as I don't have Vista/7 myself.

That should already be the case ... can you elaborate?

He does not mean "when right-clicking a playlist" (where it is already the case) but "when right-clicking a FOLDER".
I guess accessing the control-context-menu on folders will not make sense before "Generate superset of contained playlists when activating a folder" from the ToDi-List is implemented.

Sorry for coming up with this (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=80705&view=findpost&p=703890) again:
Is the keybord-shortcut-behaviour intended?
Renaming a playlist with modifiers (like shift or alt) does not work if the combination of modifier+key is set as a keyboard-shortcut (works in the original playlist manager where keyboard-shortcuts only operate in normal mode (non-renaming) ).

Specifically right-clicking a folder node rather than a playlist, such as the highlighted selection in this screenshot (http://i44.tinypic.com/2a7vdqd.gif).

Probably not ... what kind of functionalities are you thinking of that are not provided by autoplaylists?
Renaming a playlist with modifiers (like shift or alt) does not work if the combination of modifier+key is set as a shortcut (works in the original playlist manager)
I'm not sure I understand  the point. Why do you need modifiers to rename a playlist? Can you explain?

BTW, I Have posted a new version (http://thx538.free.fr/Foobar/V1.0/Plorg/foo_plorg.zip) with some bugfixes and new features that you can check in the change log (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components/Playlist_Organizer_%28foo_plorg%29#Change_Log).
The new version includes a tentative Vista/Seven style tree, an option to activate on single click, to play on double click (See preferences page) and another option to hide the item count.

You can see the problem in action here:

When adding a Playlist Organizer panel to my tab stack, the problem doesn't seem to occur, though.
My layout in CUI is like this:

Horizontal splitter
---Vertical splitter
------Horizontal splitter
---------Playlist switcher
---------Playlist Organizer
------Artwork view
---Tab stack with playlists etc.

I'm not sure I understand  the point. Why do you need modifiers to rename a playlist? Can you explain?

Well, i need [SHIFT] to write in capital letters

Example:
Renaming to "playlist" works, while renaming to "Playlist" won't work if [SHIFT]+[P] is set as a keyboard-shortcut in the foobar preferences.

*edit*: if you have set [P] as a keyboard-shortcut, renaming to "playlist" won't work either as the shortcut is executed...

In cases like this i help myself with [Caps-Lock], but i was wondering if this is intended behavior in the rename-mode.
Foobars playlist manager and every other part of foobar disables keyboard-shortcuts in renaming-mode, so the problem didn't occur before.

BTW: thanx for 0.4 , "Activate on single click" is much more intuitive from my point of view

Also NEMO7538's other component, foo_quicksearch, does (when typing search patterns), but not Playlist Organizer.

What I meant above whether this would be intended:

Thanks for the video. I didn't notice myself since I was within a tab. This bug is now fixed in Version 0.5 (http://thx538.free.fr/Foobar/V1.0/Plorg/foo_plorg.zip)

Example:
Renaming to "playlist" works, while renaming to "Playlist" won't work if [SHIFT]+[P] is set as a keyboard-shortcut in the foobar preferences.

Well .... if you place the panel on toolbar, that's what happens.

My CUI layout the screenshots are taken from contains the Columns Playlist only, nothing else. Right-clicking the toolbar does not offer to add any of my panels (Album list, Artwork view, Bookmarks, Console, Explorer Tree, Filter, History, Item details, Item properties and Playlist switcher), only Playlist Organizer. My point was it shouldn't be offered in the toolbar's context menu in my opinion.

Thank you for v0.5, keyboard shortcuts are blocked now and it works very well.

partly confirmed ;-)
- single-click an empty area is now fixed
- double click on another playlist (Y) now plays the next song after the last played song (in the last played playlist (X)), but it should activate and play the first(?) song of the clicked playlist (Y)
(for double-clicking the same playlist (X) the next-song-behavior is actually a nice gimmick though)

That is fixed as well provided that you have chosen the "Activate on single click" option. Otherwise the playlist won't get selected but only made visible in the tree.

Why does the foo_plorg panel flicker twice really fast each time a playlist is selected? It seems to happen only sometimes when "Activate on single click" is disabled, but every time when it is enabled.

Is this happening to anyone else?

Thanks for the updates. Just wondering if this red-dotted line is intentional. It appears when i click and hold on a playlist/folder.

The problem is aesthetic since i dont have red configured anywhere in my foobar or windows color settings.
Would be nice if it did follow the colors i configured.

Regarding the preferences, some are left in the context menu in case you want to have several instances and they are specific to each instance, while those from the preferences page are global.

Why does the foo_plorg panel flicker twice really fast each time a playlist is selected? It seems to happen only sometimes when "Activate on single click" is disabled, but every time when it is enabled.

Is this happening to anyone else?
I will investigate at some point in time.


Thanks for the updates. Just wondering if this red-dotted line is intentional.
.....
I see ... it will be fixed in the next version. In the meantime, you can just set black & white as custom colors, the red should disappear.

I've seen in the forums that Foobar, unlike Itunes and Winamp, is a playlists based player. For that reason I think foobar must have a powerful tool for playlists management.
I Like your plugin, but here are a few suggestions:
- 1: When You select a folder or a playlist, the "F2" shortcut to edit It isn't working (accessibility issues)
- 2: Imagine that I have a lot of playlists (It makes sense in a playlists based player), and I have a lot of folders.
---- 2.1: If I change from Columns UI to Default UI. Result, I've lost all the folders and the playlists order (unless I return to Columns UI). That is an undesirable behavior.
---- 2.2: If I accidentaly delete the element, again, the data will be gone, lost.

What I suggest You, is to not store the folder data in the element configuration. Store It in the plugin configuration, another file or folder.

Maybe You can store the folder's names in the plugin configuration, and store folder's ID in playlist as a property using the playlist properties API

1. is already in the todo list and will be introduced inn the next version
2. It is not possible to use the playlist properties because the panel may have multiple instances. I am thinking of another solution to address the issue.

Here's an idea for a cosmetic feature in the treeview display. An option for the user to specify a 16x16 png/icon that would be rendered beside the name of any actively playing playlist instead of the rectangular box. Example: iPod View is the playlist that is playing in the pic...

The flickering is now eliminated, at least on XP, both during selection and when resizing the panel. Thanks to someone with Vista or Seven to confirm.

I have encountered another bug
Using CUI+PLORG+Filters. I have it set up so that there is a folder named 'Library' with 'Filter Results' and 'Filter Results (Playback)' playlist.
Using these steps
Start fb2k > Select another artist in filters other than the one selected right now and double click to play > select a different artist in filters
makes the 'Filter Results' playlist popout of the folder and to the bottom of the PLORG tree

It seems that everytime I close and start foobar, my playlists suddenly move from their respective folders to folder called "new" (not created by me). Have I missed some option about saving configuration or is this a bug?

To be exact, I have folders called "genre" and "rating", in addition to "default", but my playlists keep jumping around. Might this be because I have last.fm radio on one playlist, which (I think) creates itself from scratch when starting foobar?

I have the newest version of foo_plorg.

A "New" folder is created only if playlists are found that were not in the tree the last time you closed the panel. It should not happen if you keep the panel permanently (even with last.fm radio).

That's kind of strange, since I'm not doing anything to the layout or playlists, just closing and restarting foobar. I've had five playlists for long time, and they stay in the "default" category, but everything created since I installed foo_plorg move out of their folders everytime to "new" category. Could it be possible that component is unable to save configurations due to some protection in Win7 and so it finds them as "new" everytime?

Strange.

EDIT: Actually, I checked the appdata\...\foo_plorg.dll.cfg and there seems to be outdated data. Should this be updated everytime or where does this component save its configs?

EDIT2: Deleted the config file, now all playlists go to "default"-category. All changes with arranging or making folders disappear when restarting foobar. Changing title formatting from preferences seems to work fine, and is saved to config file but the folders ain't.

I see ... try to remove the panel from your configuration while foobar is still active (Layout editing mode if you are using CUI). Then close foobar , restart and re add  the panel and see if the problem persists. Watch for messages in the console at each step.

Please also check your administrative rights on your appdata\...\ folder and the date/time of foo_plorg.dll.cfg

Well, that worked... kind of. When removing playlist organizer from layout, it says in console "Playlist Organizer: Last instance destroyed, Memorizing configuration" and saves current config properly in appdata\...

When I put panel back to layout, there is almost the same messages than before (only last one missing):

"Playlist Organizer: Error (Playlist [0-] unfound or name does not match) reading configuration
Playlist Organizer: Unmatched number of playlists while reading configuration
Playlist Organizer: Unfound tree configuration, trying to retrieve from last known configuration"

However, this reverts organizer to state it was in before removing from layout, so I could do my folders and arrangements at that point and it works. Any additional modifications (without removing panel again) are lost, as before when closing and re-startin foobar.

if you are using CUI, the config. changes of panels should be written in foo_ui_columns.dll.cfg, or theme.fth if you are using DUI.
Check for your permissions and the location of these two files, or try to do a clean install.

First of all, thanks a lot for this nice piece of work!

I have one bug and one suggestion:

Bug: When I delete a playlist and restore it again (excellent feature BTW), it isn't restored to its original folder and position, but at the end of all playlists and folders.

Suggestion: It would be nice if playlists could be shown in the tree without being active in Foobar. I have some very large playlists that I don't listen to very often, and they take up a lot of memory when they're active.
To clarify this, a web browser is a good analogy: I have a lot of bookmarks but only a few open tabs in my browser. If I want to view a page, I click the bookmark and the page opens in a new tab. In the Playlist Organizer every bookmark equals a tab and vice versa. Or am I missing something?

Your suggestion does not make much sense as playlists need to be stored somewhere

Post by: ArchCarrier on 2010-05-29 11:48:53

Agreed, but they could be stored in a file so that they only consume RAM when they are activated? (Also, autoplaylists could be stored as only a query and sort pattern, which wouldn't take up a lot of space.) Maybe I expected another kind of program when I installed this plugin, but I think it's strange to create and organise many playlists but having them all active as tabs inside Foobar.

Does anyone else have thoughts about this?

Post by: garbanzo.bean on 2010-05-29 12:01:24
if i'm interpreting you correctly, you're saying that all playlists listed in foo_plorg are also open in separate tabs.
if this is what you're experiencing, then it's because you're using a playlists tabs splitter.
replace the splitter with a straight playlist view and only the active playlist will be shown.

Hey there.

I believe my question might be a bit dumb , however I am fairly new to foobar, been a Winamp user before.
While looking for a more advanced playlist manager , I came upon this one and I must say I'm loving it. The only thing that's been bugging me is the actions that happen on d&d of a .m3u playlist.

Using .fpl , if I select multiple playlists from outside foobar and drop them into the playlist organizer , they get a new separate playlist inside the organizer , one for each file selected. That's how I like it.
Doing the same with a .m3u ( what my library consists of ) , all the d&d items get dumped in a single playlist called New Playlist. That's not what I want.

So generally my question would be this : Is there a way to alter the drag&drop actions taken , or is there a way to mass convert my .m3u to .fpl? OR is there a way to tell the organizer which playlists to put inside which folder "the hard way" i.e. if each folder&its respective playlists are ever listed anywhere - go there and manually add new playlists?

I'm using CUI.
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: NEMO7538 on 2010-06-16 15:51:09
I'm afraid there is a limitation of the SDK which only recognizes .fpl as valid playlists, as indicated here (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components/Playlist_Organizer_%28foo_plorg%29#Note).
As you have guessed, m3u and other playlists formats are just processed as a bunch of files at the moment, and I am not aware of any possibility to circumvent it.

I am happy to release a new component that let you organize your playlists in a treeview control.

With foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg), you will be able to create folders and hierarchies to arrange and categorize your playlists. All current functions are available by drag & drop or right click on items in the panel.
It can be downloaded here (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_plorg) and is compatible with both DUI and CUI.
Please check this page (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components/Playlist_Organizer_%28foo_plorg%29) for help and additional information.

First of all: many thanks to this awesome plugin! One of the most useful and handy components...

One question or feature request:
Is it possible to display the total length of a playlist (as with playlist-switcher component)? so for example

[-] Folder
    Playlist1 (8)........................... 1:25:12
    Playlist2 (3).............................. 17:23

so in this example Playlist1 contains 8 items with a total time of 1:25:12 (sum of the length of containes tracks) and Playlist2 contains 3 items with a total time of 17:23...

Is this possible with current playlist organizer (then i have overlooked it, sorry)? If not, could that please be added as new feature? Would be very nice.

another feature-request: Could folders be displayed in another textcolor as playlists?

Thanks again for this compnent!

I found a small bug with autoplaylists:

When I generate an autoplaylist by using the Media Library Search, the playlist in the Playlist panel has the option Autoplaylist properties in the right-click menu.
But if I generate an autoplaylist by right-clicking on, for example, the name of an artist in the Album List and then selecting Create Autoplaylist, there is no option Autoplaylist properties.

Right-click action in layout editing mode on plorg is not possible here.

Sorry, somehow it works now that i started foobar from new.
Ah it happens only if you've put it into an empty box, then again try to right-click. Maybe not really important.

I found a small bug with autoplaylists:

When I generate an autoplaylist by using the Media Library Search, the playlist in the Playlist panel has the option Autoplaylist properties in the right-click menu.
But if I generate an autoplaylist by right-clicking on, for example, the name of an artist in the Album List and then selecting Create Autoplaylist, there is no option Autoplaylist properties.

The option is called "Lock Properties" in this case.

Edit: I may think about improving the name in a future version.

howdy.
I like the component, but two things makes me nervous.

1. if I delete a playlist from somewhere inside the tree, the cursor jumps to the top playlist.
it would be nice if it stay in place and just select the playlist before the deleted one.

2. if I drop a track from playlistview inside an other playlist in foo_plorg (via Strg) the cursor jumps to this playlist, but I want stay in source playlist.

Is that possible or did I miss something?

Is it possible to display the total length of a playlist (as with playlist-switcher component)? so for example
[-] Folder
    Playlist1 (8)........................... 1:25:12
    Playlist2 (3).............................. 17:23

Nemo7538 as well as total length  could you maybe add Size to the TODO list please as posted earlier would be useful for burning CD's and would allow me to drop playlist switcher completely for you component. 

1. if I delete a playlist from somewhere inside the tree, the cursor jumps to the top playlist.
it would be nice if it stay in place and just select the playlist before the deleted one.

Those requests have been fulfilled in the new version (actually the playlist after the deleted one for musack's request).

Check the context menu: Options-->Show Playlist ... to display playlist duration or size.
The variables %playlist_duration% and %playlist_size% are also available in the titleformatting string (Preferences Page).

Please also note that %children_count% has been changed to %count% and is now available for playlists as well. You may have to change your titleformatting string accordingly.

Download from here (http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_plorg) or use the built-in updater.

I've been using this component for a while now, and just upgraded to version 1.6

I'm using DUI, and while it works great, I'm still having trouble using keyboard shortcuts (i.e. Ctrl+F) when it has focus.

I see you have fixed this issue for CUI, but I'm wondering whether you were aware that it still persists in DUI.

I see you have fixed this issue for CUI, but I'm wondering whether you were aware that it still persists in DUI.

I cannot reproduce any problem here with keyboard shortcuts using DUI.

Ctrl+F (if mapped to Edit->Search main menu entry, which is the default shortcut) refers to "Playlist Search" and is only available if the playlist view has focus (which may be questionable but has nothing to do with foo_plorg) . The menu entry is grayed out otherwise, which explains that the shortcut don't work. You can try the standard Playlist Manager which behaves the same way.

Please provide other examples if shortcuts are not working with DUI.

Sorry, my mistake about the Playlist Search shortcut.

Say for example if I press Alt, when I release the key, the focus goes back to foo_plorg. With other components (and other programs), when releasing the Alt key, the focus will remain and give access to the file menu.

It's not that big of an issue though, as I can still use Alt as a normal modifier key (i.e. Alt+F simultaneously).

There is some irritating behaviour when renaming playlists/folders with keyboard-shortcuts:

If you activate playlists on double click ("activate on single click" not selected in the options):
- "Rename" by context-menu works on the selected playlist/folder
- "Rename" by keyboard-shortcut only works on the active playlist

Is this behaviour intended?!
I found myself renaming the "wrong" (active) playlist using the shortcut since i got used to the fact renaming works on the selected playlist using the context-menu...

Not exactly :
- "Rename" by context-menu works on the playlist/folder indicated by the mouse position and then selects the playlist or folder
- "Rename" by keyboard-shortcut works on the selected playlist/folder (because some playlist has to be chosen)
This is by design

Hi NEMO7538!
First of all I'd like to thank you for this great component!
One behavior problem. I don't know if this is discussed before, but every time i start/restart foobar (DUI)
the playlist organizer tab will be activated, not the tab that was open before close/restart, this is not happening on CUI.
I'm using foobar 1.1.1 beta 2 and foo_plorg 1.7 at the moment.
Can you fix this behavior?
Thanks.

Post by: ExtremeHunter on 2010-10-27 20:48:17
Hmm that's weird because this behaviour is present only with the foo_plorg component and not any other component and that's the only reason (for me aniway) to not prefer this component on dui over the official playlist manager.

Okey after many testing here is the thing: installed fresh foobar (DUI) added only three tabs 1. ESPlaylist 2. Album Art Viewer and 3. foo_plorg

and same thing on CUI.

After  foobar restart, on DUI the foo_plorg tab gets activated everytime.
But  in CUI the tab that was open gets activated (like it should).

So I'm not sure where is the problem?

Well for me "Rename" by keyboard-shortcut works on the activated playlist (doubleclicked) and not on the selected playlist/folder (single clicked) ["Activate on Single-Click" is unchecked in the prefs]

Ah, okay, thanks!!!

The trick was pushing the ctrl-key just when the dragging cursor reaches the playlist-organizer, and not before (that seems to be reserved for selecting multiple items). The Foobar-Playlist-Manager recognizes if i want to place something in between or copy something into, thats why i've been confused.

Thanks for your support!

(1) Feature request: Add an option to disable a folder node from automatically expanding from a collapsed state when one of its playlist nodes is activated.

I have a folder node containing Facet, Filter, iTouch Remote Selection, and iPod View playlists which are all automatically activated by their associated components. I'd like it so when those components do activate any of those playlists their folder node is not automatically expanded from its collapsed state.

(2) If a node is a folder, is it possible to display the aggregate item count within all playlists of that folder node? If not, consider that a feature request.

I have a folder node containing two auto-playlists. One displays items that do not have an %added%tag, and another displays items that do not have ReplayGain. I usually have the folder node collpased because these are just "maintenance" playlists. Ideally I'd like the folder node to display the number of items in both playlists so I know there are items not tagged with ReplayGain or a particular tag.

One small bug: when a playlist is too long, it gets ...'ed, and when hovering the full playlist title shows up, which is all awesome and exactly what I want :3 but when the playlist is too long and gets ...'ed, but it's because of the number on the right, then the hover behavior doesn't work.

hi there,

thanx for foo_plorg. enjoying it more from release to release.

so make the folder itself a playlist. is that possible for future releases?

Absolutely fantastic component!

It would be even better though - I think - if it were possible to select multiple playlists at the same time. Not necessarily for playing them all at once, but mainly for moving them around. Sometimes I need to move a group of ten playlists from one point in the tree to another and I have to move them all individually. It would be great to be able to do that in one fell swoop.

Would a feature like that be doable?

I've added item 4/ (%lockname%) in the todo list.
Not so sure about your other requests.
For item 3/ I would recommend that you place the relevant playlists into a folder and keep it closed.
Hello Nemo,
thanks for your response.

Nice workaround suggestion for 3/. I created a folder named "hidden".
As the main goal of this plugin is to organize playlists, maybe you could add a rule for newly created/loaded playlists to go to a specific folder ?
eg "if name starts with quicksearch, put playlist in "Search" folder. With use of titleformat, we could do what we need 

Item 6/ would be a great help for the whole foobar community. IMHO it should be in core foobar. No-one seems to care since CW Bowron left. Too bad 

Thanks again for taking into consideration

Hi, and thanks for this great plugin. I've also been looking for something like this for some time for managing my playlists.

A little request:
moving tracks from playlist to playlist is very much possible using [Ctrl]. But I personally like the management style from playlist tabs, i.e. you can do everything one-handed (on a desktop, using a mouse).

So, is it possible to make it an option keyboard control for moving files? Something like:

Option: "Assign keyboard modifier for moving tracks between playlists: [dropdown box] Default (mouse hover) / (key 1) / (key 2) / ....."

Just suggesting......


Anyways, great work!!!!

in summation:
cant drag+drop songs into playlists


Yes, you can 

Use Ctrl+right-mouse for dragging into playlists... BTW: this is described in the help of Playlist Organizer...

I´m very used to delete playlists with middle click in playlist switcher,is very fast,could you implement this feature in plorg?

Thanks!

This is a very nice plugin and I have been using it for a couple months, with great success....
Until today, I used Windows system restore to resolve a completely unrelated issue. When I opened foobar2000 after the restore none of the playlists were in the folders. They are all situated in bewitched folder called 'New.
I would just sigh and start to reorganize everything, but that will simply take too much time since I have 316 playlists, of which many I have to look up into which folder I should drop them. If it takes let say 1 minute per playlist it would take me over five hours!

I looked at the configuration file with notepad, and I saw that inside there everything was still neatly ordered with the <F></F> and <P></P> tags. But it doesn't show it like that in foobar2000, and no matter how I tried it won't read in the data from the .cfg. I tried reinstalling the plugin and removing the .cfg file, let the program generate a new one and then copy paste all the playlist information from a backup. However when I do the latter all it gives me is an error stating that the cfg is corrupted.

don't want to waste those five hours drag and dropping playlists in foobar2000, EVEN I have something better to do.

Roll back the system restore to the point that the playlists were correct, then use the *foo_jesus* plugin to back up the good foobar configuration (copy the backup zip file to your desktop), perform the system restore again, then restore the foobar backup created by foo_jesus from the zip file..?

Post by: Tilpo on 2011-03-30 09:39:16
System restore was the thing causing the problem, and I reverted back to a time where the playlists were perfectly fine.
and foo_jesus didn't work as foo_plorg won't load the configuration, for some reason it completely ignores it and places all the playlists in folder called 'New'.When I jumble the playlists around and put them in different folders and then shut down foobar2000, delete the config file, open up foobar2000, it still shows the jumbled around playlists. As if it completely ignoring what it says in the config.
And equally important, it also doesn't put new data into the configuration file, no matter how much playlists I do put in folders the config stays like this:
Code: [Select]

Have you checked the read/write permissions for the foobar program and application data folders?
Yes, and all the permissions are correct. The strange thing is that is does edit and read the configuration file, but completely ignores the part about the folders and playlists within those folders. Or nodes, as it is called here.

And I have also checked: any manual change (that is, using notepad and typing information in myself) in the configuration file, no matter how subtle will cause foobar to display an error that the configuration file is corrupted. I don't know if this is related, however.
Also copy-pasting working configuration files does work, but it still doesn't load the information about the playlists and playlist folders.

Note that I have done system restores before with this component installed, and it caused no such problem.

The reason is that foobar2000 isn't a 64-bit program.
Doesn't matter if your Windows is x64, you will need the x86 runtime to be able to use the components with foobar2000.

Get the correct runtime from first post and it will work fine.

The required dependency is 4 meg. Is it really a problem to click on a link and install? Keep in mind that, oftentimes, program authors may not want to support old versions. Guess you can sit and wait for someone to supply you an old version, you can follow the simple requirements of the current version or just use google and source the old version yourself, or repeat the same message again.

I found a bug with 2.1
I select a playlist where I want to copy a track to another playlist
then drag'n'drop the item on my target playlist
the number of items counts up, the source playlist stays active and selected.
Now I check the target playlist and click and it is magically filled with the complete content of the source playlist, or with itself.
The more I try to switch the more same items are added.
This happens mostly directly after copying.
If I wait some seconds it works methinks.
I suppose there is some background library action to be finished?
Maybe it's my fault - but in previous versions (with holding the Ctrl Key) it worked.

Which pain did you have? Normally, it should be only a matter of switching the code generation from /MD to /MT. I made the last updates of some of my components already with VS2010 and static linking against the runtime library without any problems.

Yes, I'm aware of that. However, almost all foobar components use static linking because it is easier for the users...

There is a way around this: link to "generic" version-less runtime libraries. See http://code.google.com/p/xchat-wdk/wiki/InfoKK (http://code.google.com/p/xchat-wdk/wiki/InfoKK) for more information. I haven't tried this myself but I think that would be the ideal solution (though missing debug info).

I guess it's OK for users to install the runtime, it's not so hard when you get 'used to it'.

Is there a reason the playlist order in foo_plorg doesn't necessarily correspond to the actual playlist order? I mean, regardless of subfolders or whatever, it's still a list of playlists from top to bottom, right? I had to switch back to Playlist Switcher because of this, since I use "go to next/prev playlist" commands in my setup. It's not a huge deal, but I'd rather use your plugin then Playlist Switcher because of the tree structure, so I'd just like to request that feature if it's possible.

first of all thanks for this great component.

I'm not quite sure, if the following feature request might be feasible with the sdk. could you implement a checkbox for each folder/playlist that makes the playlist invisible in other playlist managers like playlist tabs or drop down lists. this would be an easy way to manage backup or not used playlists.

Great component! I just decided to use this since playlists have been piling up...

One small bug:
- context menu shows up only after the second right click


And two small feature requests:
- ability to adjust indentation (I would like it to be smaller)
- better icons for "+" and "-" for folders
  - looks ugly when using "dark themes" (DUI themes with dark background, e.g. dark blue)

Thanks.

Here's a weird one:

I have the Playlist Organizer in a tab along with the Album List viewer and Metadata.
When I go to the View -> Playlist Organizer menu item, it correctly selects and highlights the tab.
However, if I assign a keyboard shortcut to that very menu item (the shortcut appears in the menu), it opens up a separate Playlist Organizer window instead, with a completely different organisation of the playlists.

Is this a bug?

Which UI are you using? At the moment DUI should activate the window (both with menu entry/keyboard shortcut) while CUI launches a new window (which I may change later), but the behavior is consistent within one UI

I'm using DUI. With the menu it definitely activates the current tab, but with a keyboard shortcut it opens a new window.
I'm using Esplaylist, but I previously was using the default playlist viewer and it did the same.
Basically, I'd really like to be able to consistently select the existing Plorg tab with a keyboard shortcut.

Could you add an option to sort the playlists themselves in alphanumeric order, newest or w/e... and then a secondary option to carry this over into nests.

E.g.

I have 2 nests one called A and one called B.

Inside both A and B are tracks named D E and F.

First options sorts the nests A and B in order, second option sorts both A and B in order as well as D E and F or just D E and F.

Feature Request: Would you add the option to auto collapse all other folder/tree when I expand a folder/tree?

This way when I have a lot of playlists (and I DO have a lot of playlists  ) I don't need to scroll through them to find the playlist I want (when folders are expanded) or manually close the folders that I don't want to access/see their contents at the moment.

Thanks for the great work! This is an awesome plugin!

Thanks for this useful component!

I have feature request : would it be possible to monitor playlists files (organized into real physical folders) the same way as the Media Library does for audio files?
With a folder structure looking like :
-> Albums
---> Artist1
---> Artist2
---> ...
-> Playlists
---> Compilations
-----> Playlist1
-----> Playlist2
---> Genres
-----> Rock playlist
-----> Blues playlist
-----> ...

For example I store my media library on an external HDD (with my playlists in a specific folder).
I can use foobar2000 on any workstation to manage and listen to my "portable" Media Library.
That way, I will keep my Media Library uptodate  everywhere with me but the playlists store on the HDD are not automatically updated inside foobar2000.

I should be possible to do this by just making a copy of foobar2000 user playlists folder (0000001.fpl, 000002.fpl, etc) but I would prefer a clean way to do this with an integrated component.
And I think foo_plorg seems to be the proper one to do that with some developments.
What do you think?
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)

Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: Yønn on 2011-10-02 18:07:56
Okay, I will try another way.
Maybe I can :
- create a portable version of foobar2000 on my HDD
- synchronize the Media Library to the external HDD
- synchronize the whole foobar2000 playlists directory (from my main computer) to the portable foobar2000 on the HDD
That way, I should keep both my media library and playlists uptodate on my HDD.
Sorry to disturb the topic...

Because actually in my case, the higher pane is much taller than the lower. It's the place where, through tabs, I browse my library and my playlists. Now sometimes, I want to see both my library (in a tall pane) and my playlists. To this puprpose, I re-added a Playlist Organizer instance in the lower pane. That's why.

If it's a feature, then I hereby make a feature request of beaing to sync 2 instances of PLO.

Thanks for this component, I have come to use it as my only playlist tool, since it integrates seamlessly into my whole layout and has all features I could wish for.

One question about the looks: Is it somehow possible to exchange the icon indicator for folders (the little black triangle)? I have looked around but couldn't find a hint. If not, it is no big deal really; I'm just using a very dark layout and wanted to exchange those bits for something more visible. (I'm using CUI on latest foobar).

How should that be possible at all? The playlistorg component is a playlistswitcher: you can organize your playlists inside a tree structure and switch between them. What you wishes is kind of paradox: you have a folder but wishes it to be a playlist. To say it in other words: your folder also had to be a real playlist visible in other playlist switchers - but then it is a playlist and not a folder.

Nevertheless, your desired feature although not possible as playlist switcher is realizable as library viewer: you could try the playlist tree mod component of fbuser.

Hello Nemo,

I have the same problem as laite in post #79.

Quote
QUOTE (NEMO7538 @ May 22 2010, 20:06)
Do you have any message in the console?

Actually, it seems so. When starting foobar there is this:

Playlist Organizer: Error (Playlist [0-] unfound or name does not match) reading configuration
Playlist Organizer: Unmatched number of playlists while reading configuration
Playlist Organizer: Unfound tree configuration, trying to retrieve from last known configuration
Playlist Organizer: Reinitializing Treeview


Today I took some time to redo my foobar layout from the scratch and I discovered when this failure occurs.
I have a albumlist panel in my layout. When activating the filter to be able to quickly search in the albumlist I get the mentioned failure when starting foobar the next time. Unchecking the filter and restarting foobar solves the problem again.

Do you have any idea what is causing this behaviour?

I can provide a simple configuration for analysis if required.

Thanks and cheers!

Oh, sorry. I thought it would be the same issue than mentioned by Jac74 and Frank, but perhaps it's a bit different after I read those comments again, although could be still related to that.

At any rate, the crash occurs in a following way. I'm playing music and then using facets to search and filter artists/albums/tracks. When I'm trying to add files to the playlist ("Send to selection playlist" or "Send to current playlist"), foobar immediately hangs after double-clicking/middle-clicking selection - current track keeps playing to the end but foobar is completely unresponsible to any action. So this occurs when a track is currently playing or paused; if there is no track playing, selection will be added to the playlist normally.

I didn't know which component was causing the crash at first, so I uninstalled all components until eventually finding out it was happening when both the playlist organizer and facets were installed.

For some reason couldn't replicate the problem when I tried a portable installation with both of the components installed and my basic interface being installed. However, I didn't however my full music library (which is quite big) to portable installation monitoring, only couple of folders, in case it would have any effect.

Hi I started up foobar this morning and got this ... it looks like it has re-imported all my playlists into a folder called "new". Any idea why this would happen ?
Thanks

Can you please add an option to adjust the padding?  There's way too much.

At any rate, the crash occurs in a following way. I'm playing music and then using facets to search and filter artists/albums/tracks. When I'm trying to add files to the playlist ("Send to selection playlist" or "Send to current playlist"), foobar immediately hangs after double-clicking/middle-clicking selection - current track keeps playing to the end but foobar is completely unresponsible to any action. So this occurs when a track is currently playing or paused; if there is no track playing, selection will be added to the playlist normally.

I didn't know which component was causing the crash at first, so I uninstalled all components until eventually finding out it was happening when both the playlist organizer and facets were installed.
Thanks .... I'll have a look and hopefully provide a fix, but please be patient. I don't have much spare time atm.

I just switched to SimPlaylist and since then there haven't been any crashes when using facets for filtering. Perhaps it has something to do with having an additional playlist - Library Viewer (playing) was added to the playlists after installing and using it - or to the different way of handling the playlists.

... Playlist Organizers Preferences broken in foobar2000 v1.1 beta 1?

That is now fixed in the new version.
Please use the component updater with V1.1 (or redownload form first post) and confirm. Thanks.


FYI- this console message is now back with V1.1.12 beta 6.  Removing the existing panel, deleting the config file, and reinstalling the component with lots of stopping and restarting Foobar2000 between steps had no effect.  I can't detect any functional problems - everything seems to work just fine despite the console message.  Glad to provide more info if needed.  Thanks for a great component!

As being asked by aeidein, is it possible to add a padding option between each playlist?

Also, I'm not sure whether this is skin related but I would love to see the dashed-line for the tree. Mine is kinda missing.

While I was updating a playlist from explorer (clicking on an m3u link), I realized what I had just clicked on was not what I wanted, so I clicked delete - what happened was my whole (over 2k items) was deleted!!  I did get the backup but lost 30 mins of time.

I was wondering if you could add a delete confirm before just wiping out a playlist?

Thanks!

you should find a restore option on the context menu when you have deleted a playlist. it only exists for the current session though- you lose it when foobar is closed.

and from the main edit menu, you can undo changes made to the current playlist if you've accidentally overwritten it or deleted/added/moved items.

That's good news.  I tired ^Z which works in the playlist, maybe you could make it work too.  At least now I am OK if it happens again.

I seemed to having some problem with this component. Few days ago I just realized that all my playlists just moved to 'New' node and any additional node that I create/moved does not seemed to save after I restart foobar (exit normally). Sadly I could not recalled any significant changes that could cause such behaviour.

Below is the output I got from the console:

Code: [Select]
Playlist Organizer: Error (Playlist [0-] unfound or name does not match) reading configuration
Playlist Organizer: Unmatched number of playlists while reading configuration
Playlist Organizer: Unfound tree configuration, trying to retrieve from last known configuration
Playlist Organizer: Reinitializing Treeview


Trying the following does not solve the issue:
- Removed the panel from Columns UI, restart, reinsert panel.
- Removed the config file foo_plorg.dll.cfg in the configuration folder.
- Removed all the playlists in playlist folder.

Hi,

I am not sure if I have foo_plorg actually working or not. I have downloaded and installed the .dll, and it appears in the component list in foobar. i have installed the VSC++ redist, and in file->preferences I can see an item (below playback) that says Playlist Organiser and it has some settings.

But I cannot seem to get the tree visualisation in foobar or any of the options that are part of the module. In the playlist panel the same options seem to appear regardless of whether the module is loaded or I remove it.

So I am just not sure if its not working, or if I am just not using it right.

Is there something else I need to do to activate it or use it?

I also downloaded the skin spotify, which already has the module built in, and there again I can't seem to see it...

I read the doco, but it didnt help... is there a 'start here' guide or something basic like that? I must be doing some basic step incorrectly.

Thanks for any help

Hi Nemo,

Thanks for this nice tool, I need these little modifications which will be useful for everyone:

Quick&Important/ Technical:
1-[Collapse All] context menu button, on both item title and empty area (General).
2-[Single Expand] tree switch option.


Quick/Aesthetic:
1-[Hide Lines] switch option.
2-[Hide Buttons] switch option
3-Enable tooltip for long folder titles.

------------------------------------------

These are some suggestions that will make this plugin perfect:

Suggestions/Technical:
1-Multi-Selction feature for mass moving for both Folders & Lists, which automatically and temporarily disables [activation on single click], or enables multiple lists activation.
2-[Hide list/folder & Undo hide] buttons, in case having multiple instances of plorg and want to assign each one for a specific view..Personal Llists, Auto Lists,....etc.
3-[Save/Restore] folder structure and other configurations.
4-[Show all contents] switch option, which makes all lists under a folder and subfolders visible in the playlist view (back to first suggestion/multiple list acivation).
5-Invidual title format besides the general format which overrides the last one.

Suggestions/Aesthetic:
1-Change padding size option.
2-Change font size option.

Thank you again, I really appreciate your work.

Is it possible that foo_plorg keeps the same folder structure across all layouts in CUI?
For example:
I have problem if I make playlist "pl1" in folder "fl1" and then switch to another layout "pl1" will appear in folder "new" and "fl1" will not exist at all in that layout.

Hello,

I would like to manage my media library only with my playlists.
I ripped all my CDs collection and have more than 500 playlists (*.m3u). But I think I missed something in foobar.

First, I wanted to manage my playlists with the "Album List", but it does not display them, just audio files. So, I can only access to my standard album. I have around 50 extra playlists which are only virtual album (compilation, best of...), and I can't access it.

I tried the "playlist organizer" plugin, but to be managed, a playlist has to be opened. It does not work like the "Album List" which monitors my audio folder. I loose all the folder structure, and it has to be done manually. If I close a playlist, it disappears from the view. I tried to open all my playlists. Foobar can not handle it. Apparently, it is the way how foobar manage playlists. When closed, the playlist is no more accessible and we have to open it again.

Basically, what I am looking for is exactly the same behaviour that the "Album List", but displaying only playlists, not audio files. Is that possible ? Is it a non sense ? Did I missed something ?

Thanks for you help,
Bellator.

I don't think you quite understand the purpose of each function.

The Media Library is simply a folder-watcher. Its database is being constantly retrieved and listed by the different Library viewers (such as the Album list). The regular playlists are just lists of tracks that were meant to be created, modified and deleted on a regular basis and has nothing to do with your Media Library. (The only exception are Autoplaylists, which use the Media Library's database and a criteria to constantly update their hits.)

I'd suggest introducing the ALBUM LIST (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Encouraged_Tag_Standards#ALBUM_ARTIST) tag to your library instead of relying on your *.m3u playlists. It would most likely solve all your problems with VA/Compilation/Best of etc. albums. You might have to update your Library viewer to handle the new tag, but it shouldn't be too hard. At any point, the wiki (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Foobar2000) (especially the titleformatting part) and the search function on these forums should be able to answer most of your questions from here.

Ok. It is what I was thinking. Finally, the Media library is just a audio files browser. Currently, for each album I have its associated m3u playlist. I have done this because I have some devices (e.g. mobile phone) that only read m3u playlists and not directly audio files. It was much convenient for me to have the playlist with the audio files. My mobile phone, for instance, only display the playlists, including my extra playlists. Perfect for me.

By ALBUM LIST, did you meant ALBUM ARTIST ? If so, I already added this tag to all of my files. From the tagging point of view, I followed the recommendations in order to have proper tags for the VA/Compile albums. I have no issue on this point.

I am not sure to understand. I will still don't see my extra playlists, because only audio files are displayed via the Album list. And with the playlist organizer, I just can't open even my 500 playlists. Or maybe just open the 50 extra playlists, but it will be a shame that I will not have all my albums in the same view : original CDs in the Album list and my compile in the playlist organizer view.

May you suggest me to add the extra tag ALBUM LIST and set the Album List Views in order to display my files using the new tag. The extra "playlist" which will not be playlist anymore in this case. But is a single audio file can be displayed twice ? I am not sure to parse the ALBUM LIST value.

Or may you suggest that I duplicate audio files to create my own albums and tag with a proper ALBUM ARTIST tag in order to not mess with the original album. In this way, I can only use the Album list view. But it still a shame to duplicate audio files.

Thanks for your reply,
Bellator.

In short, no, you probably can't get something like a tree-based 'm3u playlist browser' per say.

The reason is quite simple: it does not make much sense to organize individual playlists linked to your files instead of the actual files themselves in your Media Library, at least as far as your PC goes. At any point however, you can export your 'internal' playlists (the ones you can see/edit in foobar) to external ones (*.m3u for example) which can be put on your phone. Note also that opening an external *.m3u playlist only imports the tracks to foobar's own format (*.fpl), leaving the original *.m3u file intact in my experience.

What I suggested was tagging the files within each of your 'special' playlists so foobar can distinguish between them without reliance on the actual *.m3u playlists. That would streamline browsing your Media Library in general and you could just recreate the *.m3u playlist at any time to accompany the files you put on your phone.

You might want to specify though what kind of 'special' playlists you have exactly. Most of them should be easily redeemed via proper tagging. For example an album with multiple artists on it should have an additional ALBUM ARTIST (and yes, ALBUM LIST was just a typo) tag with a value of 'Various Artists'. An official 'Best of...' compilation album from an 'Example' artist will simply have identical ARTIST(=Example) and ALBUM(=Best of...) fields among its tracks. If you want to retrieve your favorite songs from a certain artist in the future you can just set up a FAVORITE or RATING tag and so on.

For example I have a COLLECTION tag to distinguish between soundtracks of specific franchises/series easily. It is much more elegant this way in opinion and if I have to generate an external playlist to a portable device it only takes a few seconds to filter out the tracks I need to do so (I am using the Filter panel, which is just a different Library viewer):

(http://i.imgur.com/RVtNj.png)

Just a question by the way, does your phone support playing by directory structure? Because then you could just put each compilation into a separate folder (and foobar could do that for you automatically during the converting/copying process).
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: bellator on 2012-10-29 22:07:12
Ok. I got it. Finally it makes sense. The view can only deal with tag files. *.m3u playlists just do not have any tags. And the use of filter can easily show what we are looking for. Actually, it is exactly how I manage my photos.
Only the order of the songs could be an issue.

My phone supports folder structure. That's why I created a standard playlist for each of my album. But as you said, may I should "export" from foobar what I want to copy to my phone. Currently, I copy directly the files from the windows explorer.
Title: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: Daeron on 2012-10-30 00:11:35
So if folder structure is supported (and hopefully we meant the same thing) the need for *.m3u playlists can be bypassed altogether using the File Operations component. With it you can reorganize your files in practically any way you want, based on their tags.

To stick with my previous example, let's say I want to listen to my favorite songs from my Medal of Honor collection on my phone. The Filter panels help to select the files I need, then I have to define the pattern I want to structure my files after. In this case:

Medal of Honor\Medal of Honor Allied Assault\01. First Track.mp3
                                                            02. Second Track.mp3
                                                            ...
                     Medal of Honor Airborne\01. First Track.mp3
                                                      02. Second Track.mp3
                                                      ...
                     ...

Which using titleformatting looks like:
%collection%\%album%\%tracknumber%. %title%

Obviously you can swap things around, like if you want to listen to a specific artist you can just define %artist% as root folder and so on. Once the files are on your phone you can just play them from the root folder. If your phone doesn't go into subdirectories you can just flatten the pattern to be only one folder deep.

I doubt ordering the songs would be much of a problem either. You can set the default order your tracks are sorted after and even if you move things around manually within a playlist/selection, their relative order can always be reflected by inserting %list_index% to the beginning of the filename of your songs.

I have started using this plugin and it works really well.  There is a feature I've seen a couple of people ask but haven't seen any replies, so I'll ask again and see if it's possible.  Can the plugin work so that you can play an entire folder?

For example, I make extensive use of autoplaylists to manage my musical mood swings.  Let's say I have my Manager setup like so:

Code: [Select]
Rock (Folder)
- Rock (autoplaylist - Genre IS "Rock")
- Hard (Folder)
--- Metal (autoplaylist - Genre IS "Metal")
--- Hard Rock (autoplaylist - Genre IS "Hard Rock")
etc...


Right now I can play any of the specific autoplaylists, but I'd like to be able to play the entire Hard or Rock folders with their related sub-playlists as well.  Can this be accomplished using this plugin or in some other fashion?

Thanks

Please add a play option from within the playlist, preferably directly above or below the activate option, i.e. an activate and play.  My intention is to use "foo_playlist_organizer" as a Shoutcast browser to play playlists downloaded from the site.

Foobar lacks a radio option and I am sure that if you could add this function it would extend the usefulness of this application immensely.

Double clicking on a playlist does that for me (activates and plays).

Thanks for the reply, I see the option under preferences.  I guess I should start downloading shoutcast pls.

To be a further pain would it be possible to add an option for it to play, but not open up in the playlist (activate).  It looks messy otherwise.

Hi,

Thanks very much for your work on the component. I'm not sure how much time you have for it now but I have a feature request anyway. Feel free to ignore it.

It would be nice if there was a way to customise where new playlists are places. Sometimes they seem to appear in a "New" folder and sometimes they just appear at the end of the root node. Either way, if for example you could apply a filter to place certain playlists in a certain folder, you could, for example, make all of the playlists created by the quicksearch panel appear in one folder. It could work from the title of the playlist, as you can make all the playlists created by quicksearch start with an asterisk.

Just an idea! Thanks again

When i have a playlist highlighted (whether playing or not) and i download and open a music file straight into foobar, the playlist gets completely wiped and replaced with what was just downloaded. Luckily it was a playlist that can easily be rebuilt but i have some playlists where i have carefully crafted the contents, so i do not wish to override these playlists accidently. Is there anything i can do about this?

Hi,
my musik laptop runs many weeks without a reboot and with foobar open.
foobar crashed during a pc restart after windows updates.

now all my plorg folder and playlist looks like some week ago. 

is it possible to restore the last set before the crash?
when and where are the settings stored?
is it possible to make backups?

Foobar is telling me that foo_plorg is too old for the version of foobar I am using (1.2.9). I am using whatever version is available on component repository. I recently re-installed Windows and foobar, but prior to this I was using foo_plorg with 1.2.9 with no issues. It also says I could be missing a dependency. Is there a newer version of foo_plorg I don't know about or is it a dependency issue? What does foo_plorg depend on?

I have 2 questions though...

1. Is there a feature to display total of "filesize of playlists" at folder??

For example (expanded):
Code: [Select]
- FOLDER A [3 list]    3GB
--- PLAYLIST A        1GB
--- PLAYLIST B        1GB
--- PLAYLIST C        1GB
- FOLDER B [2 list]    4GB
--- PLAYLIST D        2GB
--- PLAYLIST E        2GB

For example (truncated):
Code: [Select]
+ FOLDER A [3 list]    3GB
+ FOLDER B [2 list]    4GB

OR is there any other codes that can be used at the Nodes "Title Formating" to display directly after the folder name
for that case, it expected is:
Code: [Select]
+ FOLDER A [3 list] (3GB)
+ FOLDER B [2 list] (4GB)

2. Is there setting to choose colour of the dropdown arrow? Because it is only visible on hover
I'm using dark theme, if possible I don't want to set bright color on this particular panel when others are dark

[!--sizeo:1--][span style=\"font-size:8pt;line-height:100%\"][!--/sizeo--]I use code box because it's not displaying correctly with default text / fonts. Don't kill me.[/size]

You can have "list" but no size or count information at the folder level.

Is it possible to disable background (also scrollbar) or make it transparent? Even if I do not choose background color it still does not show my skin's background as you can see below:
(http://i65.tinypic.com/4l3rj8.jpg)

The lyrics component offers me an option to make background transparent, and so it can fit in with my own skin well. Thanks.

Hi.
I've just stumbled upon this and it might be my future life saver...
I've been looking for modular, platform independent playlist management for a bit now...and after BeatportPro, Rekordbox nor Rekordbuddy having proven to be viable options as of now for a few reasons, I started looking at what's available in my favourite at-home media player foobar and what kind of extension to playlist management there are available.

And foo_plorg looked perfect!
Unfortunately I could not find 2 vital features...
- I need to be able to import & export playlist data as conveniently as possible to interchange with other programs (drag & drop works [if it has to], but I would prefer multi/batch export ability as I have 100s of playlist I need to maintain & exchange between programs... :/ ). Also, .fpl export - which seems to be the default when drag&drop exporting playlist, doesn't work for me unfortunately as none of the programs I need to get the playlists into can read that... but, I did find a m3u export option, but it's buried deep in GUI pop-up-windows (right click -> Contents -> Utilities -> save as playlist -> File Save Dialogue ), so highly annoying, if one has to use this more than a few times....
Is there any way to batch export all playlists in a foo_plorg window ?
Or even better, export the whole selected hierarchy from the *selected* root node downwards ? i.e. that it replicates the foo_plorg node hierarchy with file-system folders & playlists (in user defined format, i.e. m3u in my case...) ?

- and secondly, not nearly as important as the above for me, but I would like to be able to lock playlists from any accidental edits... and it looks like that was possible ? i.e. the documentation refers to "Autoplaylist (or lock) properties" - but looks the menu has changed and that is not available anymore ? Also, not sure if that is a playlist 'lock' as I had it in mind...

If any of the above are possible, it would be much appreciated if someone could point me in the right direction.
Churs.

Reason: This component is missing a required dependency, or was made for different version of foobar2000."


I did not change anything on my system the last few weeks. I started foobar as usual and the error message came up. Any ideas?

I reinstalled the  foo_plorg.dll and also downgraded foobar (1.3.9 is relative new) to 1.3.8 and 1.3.7. The error is still there  :'(

Thanks. Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package is on my machine. How I said foobar was even running as the error happend. Everthing else runs fine (audioplugins vst, etc.). No changes on my system.

Edit: Problem solved. After installing the latest (security!) update for Microsoft Visual C++ everything works fine. Just wonder why it do not happend before and occurred so suddenly while foobar was running.

The floating window allows me to sort the list of playlists....  however, when I do that, the list of playlists in the panel does not update.

Are the panel and the floating window supposed to be "connected" or are they actually different?

My goal is to sort my list of playlists that appears in the panel... and I didn't see a way to Sort other than using the floating window.

Thanks for any guidance

I am probably misunderstanding, but does right-click > Sort in the 'docked' window not work for you?
Granted, it doesn't auto create  'New' folders like the floating version, but that is easily rectified by adding them yourself with fitting names.

Heya,
in case you're occasionally tinkering with this component still - if you drag & drop a .m3u file into foo_plorg, the resulting playlist gets a consecutively named "New Playlist (1)" (or New Playlist (2), New Playlist (3) and so forth) name.
Would be grand if the playlist created from the drag & drop action could take on the files' name (minus .m3u extension).
Just a thought.
Cheers.

Title: Migrate playlist organizer settings to another computer
Post by: MGriffin on 2016-07-03 16:55:35
First of all thank you for the organizer, which helped me a lot organizing my music for tango-djing.
The problem I can't seem to get a grip on is as follows:
I want to migrate / mirror my entire foobar-setup to another computer (as a fallback solution / just in case)
To achieve it, I copied all of the settings to the new machine, which worked fine regarding some playlists, the entire  layout etc....
But I just can't copy/migrate my playlist- folder structure as created with the organizer. No nested folders, no folders anymore, and most of the playlist names gone. Where are these informations stored? how can I copy them into another system? (WIN7 32BIT -> WIN7 64BIT)
Please help. It would be awful to loose all that work and time I put into the old structure.

Heya,
out of curiousity - as I find a component crippling foobars' undo queue a tad worrying (i.e. if you delete something from innside the  foo_plorg window, it not only lets you not undo the delete action, it also removes all undos from foobars global undo queue) -
am I the only one experiencing this undo issue with foo_plorg ?
or is no one using this component ?
or is no one deleting stuff ?
or does no-one care undo is broken and is affecting foobar directly...?
So many questions :D

undo and redo's are local to the selected playlist and will therefore become unavailable if the playlist is deleted. This has nothing to do with foo_plorg.
Title: Re: foo_playlist_organizer (aka foo_plorg)
Post by: alec.tron on 2016-09-25 23:01:50
Thanks for the feedback & explanation!
But, try this:
- select a playlist
- move tracks/positions around in the main playlist, as to change it
- in foo_plorg windows, delete another playlist (i.e. not the one you shuffled positions in before)
- now, try to undo. For me in this case, undo has nothing anymore. Nada.  Not the delete of the unrelated playlist (I recently only found the foo_plorg restore option...), and not the track-shuffling in the 'other' playlist either

I just thought this behaviour odd, but if that's intended, fair enough.

I used to use a lot of quick-searches with SHIFT, it makes search in new playlist.

But my pain with such scheme is Playlist Organizer always puts new playlist to the end of root directory.
So then folder-tree of my playlists becomes extreamly long in a few weeks.

I do tidy from time to time, some searches I'm willing to return I put them to folder.

My dream is about "Autofolder" which would "catch" quick-search generated playlists by name pattern or so.
Is it hard to emplement?

Or maybe multiple playlist selection to move them as bunch?

Thanks for this useful plugin. Please help me see, I cannot find where to change its font...
You cannot (at the moment) .... the plugin inherits the default fonts from either CUI or DUI.
Is this still how foo_plorg is supposed to work? Because it doesn't work right on my setup. For some reason it's scaling down the font set for "list items" (I assume) to like 6 point. I had a similar problem with another panel, but that one was listed as an element in the dropdown menu on the Colors and Fonts menu in Preferences (in Display->ColumnsUI->Colours and Fonts, Fonts tab), and setting it to Custom resolved the issue. But there doesn't seem to be an element listed for Playlist Organizer, so I can't fix it the same way.

Is there any way to add the vertical padding between items and changing the font size?
Suggestions/Aesthetic:
1-Change padding size option.
2-Change font size option.
Is there really no way to do this? It seems silly that I can easily change the font color (by RightClicking the panel and selecting Options->Custom Colors->Text) but not the size. I realize all these quotes are several years old, but http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Components/Playlist_Organizer_(foo_plorg) doesn't mention font anywhere. Unless I'm missing something, I can't do anything from the Colours and Fonts menu, and the Playlist Organizer preference menu doesn't have anything relating to fonts at all. This plugin would be super convient for me if it was possible for me to see what I was doing. Has no one designed a workaround for this?

Here's a screenshot to illustrate my issue (arrow added for emphasis):

Simple question for an old component. How do you set font size for this? The component itself seems to give no options.

Hai.
Looks like having foo_plorg window activated disables any drag and drop action other than drag and dropping an item to one of foo_plorg's playlists.

eg,
In standard foobar (with foo_plorg window/element inactive) I can drag and drop a track into windows explorer windows, other media players, audio applications etc.
With foo_plorg window/element active the only functioning drag & drop target that foobar respects is the foo_plorg window/element, but nothing else.

Is there any way to get inter-program drag and drop-ability back when using foo_plorg ?

Cheers.

While looking for solutions, looks like drag&drop did work between applications with foo_plorg:

Could it be Windows10, where this is not working for me, is playing a part in why this stopped working ?

Thanks for this useful plugin. Please help me see, I cannot find where to change its font...
You cannot (at the moment) .... the plugin inherits the default fonts from either CUI or DUI.
Is this still how foo_plorg is supposed to work? Because it doesn't work right on my setup. For some reason it's scaling down the font set for "list items" (I assume) to like 6 point. I had a similar problem with another panel, but that one was listed as an element in the dropdown menu on the Colors and Fonts menu in Preferences (in Display->ColumnsUI->Colours and Fonts, Fonts tab), and setting it to Custom resolved the issue. But there doesn't seem to be an element listed for Playlist Organizer, so I can't fix it the same way.

I also have a problem with the font used by Playlist Organizer. It seems to fall back to "System", even though I don't have that referenced anywhere. "Common (list items)" is Tahoma, as is "Common (labels)". The default (MS Shell Dlg) doesn't help either. The playlist view itself (and everything else) is updated, but Playlist Organizer is unaffected by this.

Note that I'm running foobar in wine on Linux.

I think that this component has issues sometimes when the computer is low on memory(?)
I have a large number of playlist tabs, and usually the majority are in a subfolder called "Artist playlists".
I'm finding that I get a C++ error popping up at some point on my work computer (I will screenshot it next time), and then a large slab of those playlists have been moved into a folder called "New".

It's quite annoiyng to move them back, and I have to resort to default alphanumeric sorting because it happens so often now.

So, a fix would be nice (sorry I don't have a lot more info) but in the meantime I'm wondering where the hierarchy is stored? Is there a file I can backup and restore when this happens?

It's OK, I've fixed the specific problem I had - the lists are stored in theme.fth.
I've been swapping out two different theme files between home & work and that was corrupting the playlist organisation. I know there's a better way, but anyway it's solved for now.

If I do see the C++ error again I will screenshot it. Thanks!

Hey @NEMO7538, here's what I sometimes see:
I forced foobar2000 to save its config (available when holding down shift when opening File menu) and first time I got the error again, second time seemed OK. So my Playlist Organiser window is still intact. Anyway, just FYI:

Hello everyone!

I was wondering, is there any way to use the title formatting nodes outside of the Playlist Organizer panel, such as in Panel Stack Splitter? I'd really like to show the current playlist name (%node_name%) along with number of the playlist entries (%count%) somewhere above my playlist. Is this somehow possible to achieve? Thanks for any feedback, much appreciated.

Is there any place you can receive donations.

This is by far the best tool in FB2000.

I've just some questions/requests. Forgive me if I missed these questions in my reading of the thread.

1. Any chance to get font formatting of folders and playlist?
Currently I use this to distinguish the folders from the playlists
Code: [Select]
$if(%is_folder%,'█ ',)%node_name%$if(%is_folder%,' ['%count%']',)

2.
RMB and export folder and subtree to playlists. (both combined and separate playlist option)

3. RMB on selected items and send to a playlist. (Only shows non-autoplaylist ones). I currently use a legacy tools component foo_utils but it shows them greyed out.

4. I read somewhere, someone asked about CXTRL+selection of playlists. +1 for that.

Many thanks for a great plugin.

I'm pretty sure date of modification is a key. I already had some problems with crashing player etc. in the past. I'm using autobackup plugin to restore my playlist and componenets. After restoring, tree looked like most playlists are in their proper places, proper folders, and all, but part of them, newer ones, are all at the bottom of list, outside of any folder. I have a big number of playlist, and, on the other hand, my reinstall isn't too urgent, so i want to be prepared properly. Since you write that it should be ok, I'll make some tests, but at the moment I'm sceptical. ;)

If this isn't currently possible, could it be added?

Or you can create an autoplaylist with a query like this:

Post by: Mrnoname1000 on 2018-02-17 01:46:29
Neither of those seem to have what I want. Playlist Bind doesn't let you bind a folder and you can't put a playlist in autoplaylist. I want a folder that lists songs in the playlists it contains. iTunes does this, but I'm done using iTunes.

Greetings NEMO7538!

Great plug-in & Thanks!

One question... could you please add an option to turn OFF auto-scrolling of the playlists?  Every time I have my mouse pointer above (or below) the playlist, it auto-scrolls up (or down) and this behavior is driving me nuts. 

Even if Foobar doesn't even have focus, this auto-scrolling will persist and can be really irritating.  I have to scroll and scroll back to where I was to select the next playlist.

A simple option to turn off auto-scrolling would be the best solution.

Thanks

Thank you for your response.   Sorry for my late reply -- I was on holiday and was not able to reply.

Since your message, I have been unable to reproduce the auto-scrolling (bug?) within your plug-in.  My attempts to induce it have been unsuccessful.  When I have more information I will contact you as soon as possible.

Hey, my Foobar2000 freezes when I try to create a new playlist with The Playlist Organizer. That happens either with the external window, as well as with the UI interface.
It does not work with 1.3.17 which is crazy because it has worked for at least half a year now but when I tried to install a theme and deinstalling it again because another plugin did not worked with that theme as well as I hoped to, this issue started to occur.

I tried to run it as administrator.
I tried to install my backup but that didn't helped.
Then I tried to install the portable version of foobar and try my configuration there ... It still froze.
After that I tried to figure out, if it was really Playlist Organizer that made my foobar freeze so I installed a fresh foobar version again, without any plugins. That worked like a charm but after I installed only Playlist Organizer to that and tried to create a new playlist, it froze again.
I tried to fix that now for 2 days but I have no idea what to do now :(

I have my old version of foobar still installed (non portable) But that shouldn't be an issue right?
Because I even installed another fresh foobar portable version on an external drive to make sure it density interfere with any of the old files.

I hope someone has another idea, because I have like 300 Playlists and I dint wanna scroll a 10 meter long list until I get to the playlist I wanna hear and O don't know any other plugin that is as practical as this one ♥



EDIT:

I found another backup on another hard drive from a PC backup I made a while ago. I deinstalled foobar completely and copied the Programsx86 Foobar folder and the Folder in the Appdata\Roaming folder so that I had my very old foobar version installed ...
It still keeps freezing o.O So I guess its because of my PC or something like that even tho I didn't really do anything except to install that theme for foobar.

I use Windows10 Version   10.0.17763 Build 17763 if that is any helpful.
I have a pretty decent PC as well so its not because of bad hardware either :(

Hi there,

Perhaps using this portable test install you could have a look at Task Manager and then trigger the freeze - is foobar running high CPU usage? How much disk activity? Does it unfreeze by itself after a while or is it a hard lock? Following that you could use Process Explorer as described here (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,67779.0.html), appendix A-C depending which issue. If you want to post the resulting logs, maybe a new topic in Uploads (fb2k) forum as mentioned.

Best of luck

Hey, sorry for the late respond and thanks for the quick answer!

I just was tired of looking into that after 3 days of trying to get it working again ^^

BUT I actually think that I found the Problem.
I reinstalled another fresh foobar version again and tried the same thing again. Installed my components, created some new playlists ...
After I created some playlist which worked fine at first, I deleted some others again. I deleted a playlist "Default" and a folder with the same name that I did not created myself. After I deleted that specific playlist Foobar froze.
I reopened it and tried to delete it again. And yes every time I try to delete that "Default" playlist my foobar freezes.
After I figured that out, I just renamed it to " " so I wont see it and put it all the way down from my other playlists. In that way it can stay there without bothering me.
I still dint know why that playlist causes an issue tho.


To your questions:

1. Foobar itself is not running at high CPU while it runs normal. When it freezes, It just says not responsive.
2. Sorry, I dint know how much disc activity it had unfortunately
3. It is a hard lock, it did not unfreeze after 10-15 minutes that I waited in hope.

Quick note:
I tried to recreate the issue by deleting the playlist on purpose to help you out with some of your questions but well guess what, it dint freezes anymore.

I really have noooo clue what just happened but It works now fully functional.
but really thank you for the help! ♥

Hey Thanks for this plugin :-)
I, like Mrnoname1000 , have been looking for a way to store multiple playlists in a tree style view like this plugin allows, and hopefully play everything recursively within a folder, or multiple selected playlists, without creating new specially created playlists every time.

A partial solution to this is I create a 'Now Playing' playlist and just drag any playlist withing the subfolders into it. The treestyle view makes it easy to do it since every folder can be retracted so it takes up little space. Without this plugin, I would have to scroll through pages of playlists to do something similar. Just finding a single playlist used to be a chore in itself, so I never did that. Having everything in a categorical, sortable and retractable tree hierarchy makes this fairly easy.
