Can playlist show ONLY filenames

Maybe I'm cracked, but I can't find how to stop WinAmp from resolving names in the Playlist.

I have a significant amount of MP'3 and I don't use the tags, I just have the files named the way I like them and like to display them.

Can I configure WinAmps so the playlist displays filenames only.

Thanks much.

1. Winamnp > Ctrl+P
2. General Preferences > Titles
3. In 'Advanced Title Formatting' replace the string with $filepart(%filename%)

Sweet. Thanks Jonny, can't believe it didn't occur to me. I thought turning off Advanced Titleing should have done it.

Playlist vs file name export

i just read the above post, could someone give me the proper syntax to display only the actual file name and ext, vs the entire directory? And is there a way to export that list in like a .txt format? I need to strip the length, # and directory, then export just the actual file name and ext.

Any ideas?

I've seen a couple of post from you, but I'm not entirely sure I understand what you are trying to do.

The ATF string to display filename with extention would be something like :

$filepart(%filename%)['.'$fileext(%filename%)]

Don't think it can be exported as a list of plain filenames as such though.
What do you need this for? Is it just for archive purposes, display purposes or batch processing?

I have 99% of the code needed to produce a plain listing(from a previous project).
Let me know in a bit more detail and I'll see what can be done.

Filename Exports

I too am waiting for something like this. with over 15 TB of music, i need to be able to build a playlist, and export ONLY the filenames (not the directory info) just the filename.mp3 i dont want to know how long the file is, or anything else. all i need is just the file name listed in the order arranged on the playlist.

if anyone has any great ideas, I could sure use them.

as for why I need this, i run a linux operated radio station and the software only reads .txt and I am to comfortable with winamp to use anything else.

unless there is a way for the m3U file to only show playlist order and filename that would be even better!

Let me know if anyone knows of anything out there.

Best Regards,

DJT
