Title: Is there a way to batch change the directory of my audio files?
Post by: Sixmsj on 2011-10-06 02:52:17
Is there a way to batch change directory on a foobar configuration?

I recently switched to linux and am running foobar under wine. The hard drive path changed to a Z though whereas my old configuration was an H:.

I have tons of playlists that I want to be able to automatically use again but it seems like this is not the case.

Any help would be appreciated, whether it is a way to change directories, or somehow change the existing playlists to use the new directories filepath.

The component foo_playlist_revive can help get your playlists back. Here is a link: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=73910 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=73910)

Hopefully it will work properly with your Linux configuration.

For Future Reference: If you move your files with fb2k's fileops component, loaded playlists are automagically taken care of and tags don't have to be reindexed.

foo_fileops does not help, if you copy a foobar2000 configuration from one machine to another. Or from Windows to Wine.

Thanks everyone who replied, I will be trying foo_playlist when I can and will probably update with my results later.

Have you tried adding a Z drive in Wine Configuration? Pointing it to an empty directory and soft-linking (if you don't want to move them) your music folder(s) in there should do the trick (never tried actually ).

HTH.

Ahhh. Yes. Reading comprehension. I knew I forgot something.

Alessandro: Wine already uses symlinks to implement drive letters. They can be edited through winecfg. If you want to check them out manually, look in "~/.wine/dosdevices".

Oh nice, never bothered to explore those details, thanks for the heads up.

Then the OP could directly point the new Z drive to the ~/.wine/drive_c/musicfolder, right?

Still, I'd personally rather move my music library to a dedicated folder: I never liked much those "hard to find" sub-sub-sub-folders.

Yess, it worked. Added a drive letter H to the folder /media/Main and then pointed foobar to the correct drive to monitor.

Thanks everyone.
