AutoPlaylist sort order?

I have an AutoPlaylist that is based on the songs in a Playlist. Is it possible to set the sort order of the AutoPlaylist to the order of songs in the Playlist? I recognize you'll want to use tag data rather than something arbitrary and MediaMonkey database internal to sort on generally, so I unders...

Best practice for creating AutoPlaylists

I'm looking for recommendations on how to best structure AutoPlaylists. MMW, 5.0.4.2960, lifetime gold user. Let me explain my situation. I have greater than 40,000 songs in my database, and roughly 200 regular playlists. Every song I'll want to pick from to create the AutoPlaylists will be in one o...

Play Now adds unwanted songs to the Now Playing list

I have the Default 'Play now' action set to Play selected files only, but when I try to select several files and click Play Now or play an album, when the list has less than 5 songs left to play, more tracks are added to the bottom of the Now Playing list. This behavior happens even when I start wit...

Re: MMW5 and playlists

Peke, that is a good question and requires a somewhat involved answer. I have about 42,000 songs in the folder that gets synced to my phone, spanning 178 genres. I have 195 playlists that are synced, of which 8 are auto-playlists and 187 are regular playlists. Of the 187 regular playlists, 53 are &q...

MMW5 and playlists

There is a new feature in MMW5 that I would like to turn off, but I don't see how in the Using Playlists help page. My workflow has me adding few songs to many playlists, instead of sending many songs to one or few playlists. The idea of drag and drop is good, but doesn't work well when you add one ...

MMW5 hangs using Send to Playlist

MMW 5.0.3.2627 hangs pretty reliably sending track(s) to playlists. I have it set up so my playlists are nested in folders. So, for example, at the top level I have the following folders: Development, Mix Tapes, Mix Tapes By Artist, Shuffle Play By Album, and Shuffle Play By Track. In Shuffle Play B...

Re: MMA sync with MMW 5 missing new playlists

Thank you for being patient with me. I must have unchecked Devices and Services from the media tree, so the only thing that looked like it might be right was Shared Content in Options. It doesn't help that in MMW4 the device was in Options and in MMW5 it's in the collection list. Half the trouble is...

MMA sync with MMW 5 missing new playlists

Sync works perfectly bidirectionally: new media downloads to MMA and play metadata uploads to MMW 5. On the other hand, I added two new autoplaylists and for some reason I can't get them to sync to MMA no matter what I try. In Tools -> Media Sharing -> MediaMonkey Library (checked) -> Options -> Sha...

Re: Been using MMW5 for about a month now, here are my issues

I've been using the debug version of the beta, and now the first release candidate. No more hangs! Everything I complained about has been fixed.

Been using MMW5 for about a month now, here are my issues

I have three issues in MMW5. Here they are, in order of increasing severity: Issue 1: I was told in a previous forum post that all of the features that were in MMW4 were possible in MMW5. One of the flows I use is add/rescan to add new media folders to my library. If I have a folder C:\foo and in it...

Re: MMW 4.1.31 and 5.0.1 databases messed up

Lowlander, good news, database is back intact. Long story short, I tried to update with python / APSW, which it turns out does not support IUNICODE. I decided trying to integrate support for IUNICODE into APSW using your 32-bit DLL was going to be painful at best. But it occurred to me that SQLiteSt...

Re: MMW 4.1.31 and 5.0.1 databases messed up

Thank you, Lowlander. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you -- I've been sick and haven't felt up to doing much of anything. Getting better :) Anyway, just before I got sick I decided to go down a different path. I moved the old 4.x database to a new name, re-imported all of the music and exports of th...
