copyplaylist2 (amaroK script)

Amarok 1.x Scripts by mkae 19 comments

Hi All,

the new version of copyplaylist2 features user-defined configuration sets and has some smaller improvements. Please see the supplied README file. The existing config file is not reused due to the change to a new file format.

You will notice that the dialog does not pop up. The script runs in the background until you right-click an item in your playlist and select "Copy Playlist Files / Open CopyPlaylist2 Dialog" from the context menu, or click "Configure" in the Script Manager.

If you program in perl, get in contact with me in case you want to implement any of the remaining ToDo items or what you think would benefit this small script.

Have fun,

I think it depends on your usage pattern, but it's definitely an interesting feature if the user has a device with a large filesystem.

However, the sync does not work as expected if the %S placeholder is used: When songs are inserted in the middle of the playlist, all following sequence counts shift. But that's a minor drawback. - Jan 06 2006

The %N parameter does not work with newer versions of amarok. I have already fixed this problem in copyplaylist2 version 0.5, but I'm waiting for mkae to upload the improved version. I'll send you version 0.5 seperately by email...

Hi,
I have to look into this -- I even have the same problem with umlauts.
One umlaut results in TWO "broken" chracters in my filesystem filenames. I suspect that perl uses UTF8 internally (coding the umlaut in two bytes) and my filesystem doesn't. The File::Copy call does not mediate the situation either.
What is the exact problem with your filenames? Is a character missing in the destination filename right after the umlaut?
I'll try to fix this, but I wonder why Perl filesystem modules are not aware of the conversion problem.
