Copy/paste items to/from playlist
« on: December 18, 2018, 03:12:47 AM »
It would be useful to be able to hit Ctrl-C (or a menu item) and have the selected playlist item(s) copied to the clipboard as links. Likewise for pasting via Ctrl-V back into the playlist. This is one of those features which is standard virtually everywhere in Windows but which Winamp doesn't support.

There's a Drag n Drop plugin, but dragging and dropping is not as useful, and the plugin also crashes constantly.

Thanks

I would like have this extended to saving partial playlist file too.
For example, select songs from playlist editor, then rmb menu would give some "export" function with "copy selected to clipboard|save selected as .txt|save selected as playlist" and latter one you could choose m3u(8)/pls/whatever as in saving playlist normally, also checkbox "
  • extend [ ] top
  • bottom of existing playlist" would be nice to create new playlists from only the best ones from thousands of songs from current playlist.

For copy/paste, I think it would need selection what to copy, just songnames or filepaths?

This one still works most of the time: https://web.archive.org/web/20160316222828/http://nunzioweb.com/joonas/dnd/

I ended up making a plugin myself for ctrl-c/x and ctrl-v in the playlist but I had to edit the Winamp exe to remove the built-in keyboard shortcuts which were preventing this from working. I think this could easily be implemented in WACUP.

Removing actions is no more different than what I'd need to do via anything wacup provided.

I'm in the middle of replacing the playlist editor ui code with my own so I'm putting some thought into these things but for a first attemp I don't want to break existing features.

However non-windows the playlist editor works isn't something I want to do lightly &/or would require an option to change the expected behaviour & then it's what should be default.

Maybe changing to be more windows like is better but I'm a bit torn tbh.
