[PARTIALLY IMPLEMENTED] Playlist stuff
« on: November 17, 2016, 06:20:08 PM »
Hey all,
First, it's so refreshing to find pockets of hope for winamp out there.  I still love it so!

I just accidentally added a duplicate item to a massive playlist and rather than remove it, I mistakenly hit "crop playlist" and lost everything.  Fortunately I have a backup from months back but still a huge loss. 
SO, my wish is for better playlist backup/recovery/management options

1. Auto playlist backup to file (I can specify how often and where it's saved)
2. Undo would be nice for any edit function in a playlist (add/remove/CROP/etc)
3. merge playlist would be great (bring a copy from home to work and only import changes) -This might be tricky for some since I'm taking it for granted that my library is coming from the same path structure in both locations (m:\music...)
4. Merge and remove duplicates might be easier -where duplicates are defined by artist/album/track metadata match perhaps?
5. Kinda out there: if I'm listening to a playlist and then listen to something else, I sure wish winamp could remember what I was listening to in the playlist when I return so it doesn't duplicate played tracks again.
6.  Way out there: when i click send to: playlist, sure would be nifty it winamp said "you sure? it's already in there"


I'll think of more... wish I could dev plugins in c#.  I know nothing of c++

There is already a good plugin for playlist undo actually :)

But I would really like to enqueue songs from Media Library into playlist right after currently playing song.
I think there is only option to enqueue songs at the end of the playlist, I didn't find any plugins or something to do this thing....

Not sure if you've realised but that plug-in is also by me and although it was too late for when this thread was started, it's since been updated to work with 5.66x and bundled into WACUP (a standalone 'fixed' version of the plug-in is not available).

But I would really like to enqueue songs from Media Library into playlist right after currently playing song.

The option for doing that is already present as long as you've got the latest JTFE plug-in installed. If you go to preferences -> Jump to file -> ML Options (is a child node) (*) and then turn that on (like in the image below) it adds a number of options including a 'move after current playlist item' onto the send-to menu.

Ideally I wanted that option to be on by default but for a cleaner experience I was asked to have it disabled by default by the management at AOL at the time. Though now you've reminded me of this, I'll have to make a decision on if I keep to that or not as part of the WACUP builds :)

(*) If using a WACUP beta build newer than #1430 then it's instead a tab on the 'Jump to file' node instead of it's own sub-node due to some reorganisation.
