If you find that your album art and desktop.ini files are missing, then look harder. It is NOT deleting them. It's just moving the music files and the album art is not moving with it (the album art is not stored in the library).
You HAVE to go into the options and configure the plugin before it's run. It won't let you run the plugin without at least looking at the options.
I don't understand how it was deleting the file extensions, but I threw in two more checks to make sure they are there. If they are not, then it will just add a ".mp3" to the end. Because any music extension is better than no music extension. I even tested it on .wav, .mp4, and .flac. All of the files had the correct extension at the end.
I had a couple of my friends test the plugin on their libraries and their computers, and everything worked perfectly.
Also, make sure you have the most recent winamp!
-- 5.52 at the time of writing.
I am very sorry if you lost your file extensions. There is a tool called Tag&Rename that you can use to change them back. You can get it at www.softpointer.com
. You can also use Rename Master (http://www.joejoesoft.com
The newest version, along with the source, is attached.
Hey I was an avid user of your plugin for many years (no idea which versions I used) and I was just wondering why it doesn't seem to be working anymore. I use Winamp to sync to my phone and to play songs from smart and non-smart playlists as well as I love to organise my music folder to get rid of the pointless looking clutter. Problem is the program seems to be bugging out on eg Pink Floyd's album The Wall. I set it up so that my queries are:
!(albumartist == "Various Artists") AND (discs <= 1)
!(albumartist == "Various Artists") AND (discs >= 2)
(albumartist == "Various Artists") AND (discs <= 1)
Various Artists\<Album>\<Track2> <Title>
(albumartist == "Various Artists") AND (discs >= 2)
Various Artists\<Album>\<Disc>-<Track2> <Title>
all acting on Files to organise: type = "0"
for some reason.. it seems to be renaming the files to eg
-01 Hey You
-01 In The Flesh
1-08 Empty Spaces
1-10 One of My Turns
-02 Is There Anybody Out There
-02 The Thin Ice
very inconsistent. I for the life of me can't seem to work out what's going on. The tags in Winamp are all complete and the track numbers are eg 1,2,3,4, and the disc column is 1/2,..... 2/2,.......
Anyone know what's going on?
