This is a very simple component I wrote but might be useful to others. Basically you select a list of songs and then create playlists from that list with a maximum length.

Why would you want to do this? Here is why I needed it: I've got a list of 200 songs and I want to record those on to CDs to put in a changer. Instead of figuring out what songs are needed to get as close to 80 minutes of audio as possible, I just select my list of songs, select the BinPack option, and then I have 11 playlists that all fit on 80 minute CDs. This allows me to populate the changer very easily, a lot easier than trying to create playlists manually for each CD!

I might add more functionality later, but this is all I needed at the moment.

Just wanted to thank you for an eminently usable plugin!! I used to have the same problem creating mix CDs for my car.
