How to add all subfolders of a single rootfolder as individual playlists?

Hello,

I'm looking for a way to automaticly add 300 folders as single playlists in f2k.

I have a root folder C:\music which contains 300 folders
รก la
C:\music\foobar\
C:\music\artist1 - album 1\
C:\music\artist1 - album 2\
C:\music\artist2 - album 1\
C:\music\artist2 - album 2\
C:\music\artist2 - album 3\

each folder contains musicfiles which I'd like to put into a single playlist for each folder.

so, after all, I would have those playlists in f2k:

foobar
artist1 - album 1
artist1 - album 2
artist2 - album 1
artist2 - album 2
artist2 - album 3

If there is a simple way to accomplish this, I have forgotten about it ;-/

Thanks :)

Nobody?
Maybe an Addon, that would help?

Not that I know of. But what is the endgoal here?

Automatically creating playlists which you want to export to other players? Or just playing them in foobar?

If the latter, you have various library viewers which give you pretty much the same (or arguably better) functionality.

Its the latter, to save time/clicks when adding more than 5 folders to foobar.

Library viewers cannot help here, afaik, because the folders don't always contain well tagged music.

Also, the folders are just on my hand via an open explorer. When using some library views, I need additional steps to see each of the folders separately inside foobar. => Too much work than just drag 5 folders by hand, but its cumbersome for more than 5 folders.
