You probably already figured out that if you just set your default sort to be backwards then it adds the songs in the right order...
There's many bugs already reported, or at least so says the help window.

But where to modify the default sort?
Maybe it's a good idea to group the known bugs together, in the openingpost for instance?

How do you get ml_tree to add tracks in the correct (non-reversed) order when you right click on a folder and select play? The previous poster mentioned changing the default sort order but I can't see anywhere to change it.
Thanks.

I've done a small update to this plugin to fix some compat issues. I'd like to do a lot more, but one thing at a time.

Namely Ive fixed:
- Ratings and playcounts etc not being shown for latest versions of winamp.
- Locate current selected fixed for latest versions of winamp
- Rate items context menu now functions
- Locate/Tracking of current playing/selected items fixed

shaneh when are you going to get back onto this plugin.. its like the best one out there..dynamic library just doesn't appeal to me when I can use this one and already have my entire media library available+plus its built in.. just sucks that you can't customize it much.

would be great if you could start polishing it up some more

ps. is there any quick way i can change the alternating row colours?

May be a stupid question, but I just downloaded ml_tree.zip.
And when look to the content of this zip file: 1x bmp, 1x dll and 2x ini files. I ask what to do to install this plug-in into winamp???

I tried read all of this topic to find out, but nowhere I can find How to install???

I think this plug-in is the answer to my question for which I wanted to start a topic:

How to change the view of ML like explorer.

If this plug-in donnot match my question. Please, let me know. So I can start a topic to get to know what I need to get the view of ML like explorer.

Just copy the files to your winamp's plugins folder, usually is: c:\program files\winamp\plugins

I AM the conscience, though I'm not sure if i'm zero or infinity...

yes its very much what you're looking for..

unfortunately its development seems as dead as a dodo like a lot of good things that get made for winamp they often never get finished and left abandoned... however the alternative to ML_tree is Dynamic Library.. maybe worth a try..

Suggestion

This is great replace for classic Media Library.
But I got a suggestion for you. When you move some tracks in Artist or Artist/Album view to another "folder" (artist/album), it would be great to change ID3 tags of these tracks and class them properly in ML.
Thanks

you can't expect constant/instant updates with any plugins since it all comes down to the devs of the plugins to find/have the time to be able to work on them. also 5 months is a relatively short time to start claiming things as abandonware (personally i've a few plugins which have had a few minor internal updates but nothing major and that's from a few years after the last public release). until shane makes comment regarding this plugin i'd say it's not abandoned and is just waiting for time to appear to be able to work on it again. patience is the key word here (however frustrating that it maybe)

I still use this plugin myself, its my primary interface to the ML. I find and enqueue every song I play from it, and send songs to my ipod from it. Which is pretty much all I need it for.

So I wouldn't say its abandoned, it just meets my immediate needs so I havent bothered to put the effort in to update it.

It has a fairly complex code base, and is written mostly in straight C but really should be re-written in C++. I am reluctant to commit much more effort to it in its current form because:

a. The ML is undergoing a change to unicode in Winamp, yet ML_tree is all multibyte based.

b. I would be increasing the complexity of the code, increasing the need for a re-design/re-write, and at the same time increasing the amount of code that needs to be re-written/re-designed. Its a bit of a stalemate condition.

As I use it myself, it should at least remain usable. I do like this plugin, so its something I will keep on my todo list. If and when I ever get a large amount of free time to dedicate to this, I will probably re-write it (mind you I say that about everything).

I would like to see what the ML does with the unicode transition too. Already there are a few changes, such as with adding 'composer' etc, and a a few bugs fixed. With that, my existing ml_tree code base, and my growing experience with decent code design it should be a little more desirable to design / re-code / maintain.

The biggest problem is time, or lack there-of.

@peba0706:: you are using an old skool version that had a hack to dock the playlist. I dropped this feature in the later builds. Its kinda cool, but kinda useless and buggy. Get the latest version from www.myplugins.info

Thank you for the fast response!
Now its works fine with oldskool skin (i like it, i dont wanna change) The playlist still appears, and the whole thing is OK.
So, thanks for your work, once again!

cheers

Saving preferences

Let me start out by thanking you for ML Tree, it is a very helpful tool. One question for you; is it possible to apply node ordering on a specific directory and have that setting retained between the opening and closing of Winamp?

No unfortuantly not, but I am working on a re-write of ml tree which is going to be quite different, it may support that. Hopefully it will eventually be something a bit similar to

http://wiki.bowron.us/index.php/Foob...:Playlist_Tree

Although probably not as full featured, one thing at a time. Ive got some of the basics going, but it still needs a lot of design work.

Help me!

so.. i'm still using this AWESOME music player...

I would love to get the source-code of ml_tree.dll

(i've fixed some bugs with Resource Hacker, but I want to ajust the ListView, and make it stop showing subfolders, recursively, also)

Anyone has the source-code?

Winamp surely is THE BEST player OF ALL ETERNITY....

Media Library Tree would be the best (needed) tool for me too...

if only we could get the source-code of this plugin to try updating it...
(it's almost working...)


Koogle: take a look at my winamp, and my AutoHotkey's Script (for Winamp):

it'd be easier to just make a new plug-in than trying to get source code when no one has heard from shaneh in years.

Man... I thought this was a plugin-separator... but I guess I stopped using the plugin, and started using this Winamp-built-in separator feature:
http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/8871/1oua.png

The main thing about it, is: I have all my music organized inside folders like this:
Astrix - Artcore - 2004
Artist - Album - Year

so, I made my "default separator" this:
code:
$IfStrEqual2(%folder%,CD1,> $directory(%filename%,2) - CD1,$IfStrEqual2(%folder%,CD2,> $directory(%filename%,2) - CD2,$IfStrEqual2(%folder%,CD3,> $directory(%filename%,2) - CD3,> $directory(%filename%,1))))

(note: sometimes there's sub-folders, CD1, CD2, CD3... so I adapted)

than, everytime I fill a playlist full of albuns/music, I always do this:
1st: Sort the playlist by: "path and filename"
2nd: I use the function to automatically insert all the separators:
(Right-click -> Separator Options -> "Insert separators between folders")

but those ___[PROG]___ and those NULL ones ----------- are all "Separator presets" that sometimes I insert manually, just to organize a lit bit more....

About ml_tree.dll, I think this is the latest (that's the one I'm "using". I searched very well, looking for the latest)
(and when I said: "using", I'm not really using.. couse it's all buggy...)

and, if you want, my entire Winamp, to take a look... (the main "Program Files (x86)" and "AppData\Roaming" folders)
