I've noticed that the optional components page for a while now that a better version of the Autoplaylist Manager component will be coming out at some point. I'm not trying to apply any pressure smile.gif I was just wondering how its progress is going... I've noticed a few things that are a little annoying in the current component but I have so far held asking for them to be changed. So, what might we expect from a new version?

The single most annoying thing that will be fixed is the inability to edit the settings of existing autoplaylists. Also planned is a wizard to guide new users through the process of creating an autoplaylist. While this wizard currently is the only part of the new user interface that is already implemented, it will be possible to disable it in the final versions.

As for other new features, well, I have thought about the possibility to restrict the size of an autoplaylist. However, to my great dismay I have found it even harder than expected to add this properly to the autoplaylist backend, so it might stay on the todo/wishlist for quite a while longer.

by the way...

i created an autoplaylist with the following query: %path% HAS 80s (which would add all files in my "80s Music" dir. is there a way to automaticly update the playlist?
lets say i would add a new file to my 80s-music place on my harddisk.
what i do now:
- insert the file manually to the foobar-playlist, or:
- rescan media library (wich takes very, very long...)
is there a way to do this automaticly with autoplaylist? i know there is a way to do this with winamp, and i really liked this feature.

"playlist_bind" should do that....

for autoplaylist the files have to be part of the ML.

Right now it's a little slow for me when the program start with a 10000+ songs ML and more than 10 autoplaylists and some with complex search strings. So foosion could you add an option allow us not to update the autoplaylist at program start and a button to refresh the autoplaylist, right now I have to restart foobar to update those autoplaylist or I miss something. One more, in the context menu of playlist an "update this autoplaylist" would be great.

An autoplaylist should update automatically when the contents of the media library changes. Manual update seems like a sensible idea for large libraries, so I'll put it on the wishlist. I cannot promise that it will be in the first new version.

thanks.

EDIT: It seems that the double quotation marks (") does not work. If I use "%path% HAS "Album Music"" it acts as "%path% HAS Album OR %path% HAS Music" I think it should find the songs with path have "Album Music" string, is it a bug?

Hmm. I noticed a little Bug i think. The autoplaylist component doesnt show up in the preferences Dialog, which im using to check the Version Number. It isnt very important, but it would be nice to fix this smile.gif

In this circumstance, it seems to fail. After remove files from library then autoplaylist updates but if I readd those files then nothing happen.

This is intended behaviour of the media library. If you remove files from it, they cannot be re-added until after you restart foobar2000. This is to prevent them being accidentally added back, because foobar2000 monitors files that are added to the playlist and adds them automatically to the media library, if they match criteria you set on the media library preferences page.

on normal playlists the selected track after starting foobar is the last one played before closing. on autoplaylist it is still the first one of the playlist and the sorting always changes also if i havent insert a sorting format - than it changes to something like %filename% or %artist%%title% or whatever but i like it that the foobar starts as if i closed it.

this is caused by the refreshing of the playlist cause for about 1 or 2 seconds at start i can see the old playlist and than it will be refreshed...

i think it's not possible at the moment, cause you need somethink like IS_NOT or !GREATER but maybe someone else has find a freakin query string for that.

by the way i have a foo_autoplaylist.dll in my components folder but i dont find it under preferences --> components.

What about the NOT operator. Example:
CODE
NOT "[%__replaygain_album_gain%]" IS ?*

Note: This checks if the field %__replaygain_album_gain% exists and is at least one character long.

@foosion: if it's your plugin, can you update the help inside the plugin? or where can i read the hints on such query strings?

little bit offtopic: is there a possibility to see all available %variables% on my foobar set?

The current autoplaylist component already has a help button in the "Autoplaylist manager" window which opens a window with some help text. This help text unfortunately lacks the description of the MISSING operator and isn't structured all that well (it's just plain text after all). I already fixed both issues in the new version.

I look forward to the new foo_autoplaylist, I was just wondering if we could have a way to export all the autoplaylists's that we created so that if foobar2000 crashes at anytime, we can import our playlists.

yes it is annoying. in the majority of cases foobar crashes the autoplaylist are away but everything else is ok. so it would be cool to export it in a readable way - a csv-file or something like this - or the crash stability will be improved

You can use the "File/Save configuration" command to save the configuration file and all the playlists to prevent losing unsaved settings. I haven't lost my configuration in a crash since 0.9 final at least, and the components I use don't crash on a regular basis either.

ahh okay i thought i could save it in another file than foobar2000.cfg, but its only the same as the [save all] button in preferences.

what should this help? my configuration is saved but foobar crashes or will be killed on shutdown and after the next start all autoplaylists are away while the rest of foobar looks like everytime and is set to the same parameters like everytime.
