I am not sure whether that info is helpful to user. I'll consider it.


I'm rather sure it is. I was about to download your plugin just because I've needed it a few times, and will be needing it again and again... but I didn't download. Because I will wait until I need it, sincerely hoping this feature will be there. But just highlighting them seems to me like a rather unpleasant status report...

The more control the better. A report when done, that seems obvious to me. I think it should state which items worked and weren't touched, which items were changed, last but not least any items that were broken but couldn't be found. If it could also show all new filepaths, that would be great. That way I could check that there hasn't been any mixing up of similar songs.

I second this. Moreover, I see cases where the plugin fails to find an alternative (same artist, same title, but different codec).

Anyway, hakase seems to have dropped any development ont theis pretty plugin... Would anyone suggest an alternative ?

I have looked but never found any better playlist fixers other then Hakase's plugin. Perhaps it could be open-sourced?

A change I would like to add would be for it to uniquely id the files based on the audio content portion of the file only. This would make it resistant against ID3 header, filename changes and the like.

You might want to look ats M3U Reviver a standalone by Werner Staudacher but I found it quite a fiddle to use.

Another trick I tried was to use an in-built playlist repair facility of WinAmp but looking at my current version that option seems to be absent?

Perhaps there are other apps, I would be intrigued to know.

Yeah, using MusicBrainz'MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID field would be very cool.

It doesn't seem to work for some of my playlists, I'm trying to fix the location of a file that used to be in C:/Shared but is now in D:/Shared. I see it in my library but it still doesn't work.

Not working here.

It shows me the missing tracks but cannot revive them eventhough I definitely have the same file OR the same title in my Media Library.

CODE
Tracks that fail to update due to no or multiple candidates are selected in the playlist. Please make sure your media files have been scanned into the media library.


Any idea on this one?

Great plugin! I've only recently been creating dedicated playlists, had always used the autoplaylists, and have a general Music folder that I just toss new folders into as I obtain them. Problem with playlists of course is when it's time to do some housecleaning the playlists become hopelessly screwed up; but this component fixes things in no time flat. Thanks for your work!

How do you get it to run once you extract it? there is no revive dead files option... or am I just being stupid?

it would seem so. from the opening post:

QUOTE
Use main menu -> Edit -> Revive Dead Items to do the job.


edit: just noticed you mentioned extracting. there's no need for that....

Very useful little app. Works like a charm so far.

In theory it's not strictly vital as fileops within Foobar itself keeps playlists up to date but using revive is much more straightforward.

Same issue as ELITEeNergizer reported--On a couple different PCs, I've had the plugin fail to find items, usually when I'm porting foobar and my music collection to a new PC with a different combination of drive letters. I'm guessing the problem is related to drive letters, since we're talking the exact same set of MP3s whose paths would previously be updated. I'll test this some more if there's any indication the plugin is still under development.

Doesn't seem like there was any development on this recently, a pity.

QUOTE (hakase @ Aug 14 2009, 10:03) *
This option became meaningless as I modified the matching algorithm in v0.2. Please just ignore it :-)

Basically the mathcing is based on file size and track length. A matching title field is a positive factor but not determinative.
The case this scenario doesn't take into account is when you convert the tracks to a different format (for lossless tracks). Alternatively matching by tags would help with that.
