Hi,

I want to change the location of all my songs but I want my playlist to have all the songs in the order they are in now. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Wolfy

Give me a week or so (maybe less), and I'll have a plugin that does this (keep your fingers crossed).

humm

This is kinda odd, I didnt need to change anything...

For some reason the playlist only had a /Mp3's/ as a dir so I just moved the mp3 folder where I wanted it and put the playlist file in where the mp3 folder was and it worked.

Humm, why was it like that? Anyway that was kinda nice hehe

The Unofficial M3U and PLS Specification

Generic M3U/PLS
A list of links to files makes a valid generic playlist. The entry can be relative (i.e. \files\song.mp3) or specific (i.e. c:\media\files\son.mp3). Also, URLs can he inserted to point to a stream or a file on the Internet.



im glad for you, most people arent as lucky

Well, I finished it earlier than planned.

Although, I don't know if I'd use this if all you are doing is changing a drive or root directory - I'd use the "edit all files" as mentioned in the other posts.

hummm

Well you know, I may even wanna change it yet again in a way that I would have to edit it. I think it might even be wise to just put the dang playlist save file in the same dir as the songs, that way its all in the same spot and you can rename the folder all your songs are in etc if you want. I donno, its fine the way it is now I guess. Might be nice if winamp had a feature to add like a file for track list and then you specify where the files are at, but then again just 1 playlist file is also nice...

You could always load the playlist file into a text editor (like Notepad) and do a Search and Replace All function on it. Replace all occurances of the old path with the new path.

Import all your playlists in Foobar. Then use the masstagger for renaming files or changing their places. The playlists are corrected automatically. And then reimport the M3Us in WA.
