    Question DSP Effects R6 - Playlist Writer - PLS

    Just test the new Playlist Writer and choose the PLS output, but when i checked the PLS file so did i notice that the full path is listed...

    X:\Folder\Folder\xx - Artist - Song Title.xxx

    Should it really be like that?

    When creating a M3U file so is there no full path.

    xx - Artist - Song Title.xxx

    It was by design, AFAIK PLS do not have the path removal of m3u, unless you can point me in the right direction.

    The software 'Music NFO Builder' have an option to create PLS files and those PLS files created by MNB don't contain the 'Full Path'. So there have to be a way to get around that, but i dont know where 2 find that info.

    The Playlist Writer is not working for me. Could it be because I am using the Multi Encoder and had to add the Effect to all 3 encodings?

    Yes, it cannot be within multi-encoder.

    If I use the new batch function, then I should be able to create playlists (haven't tried doing this yet).

    I am not sure how to attach something so I will just paste the code here:
    ---------------------------------------------

    @ECHO OFF
    CLS

    SET batchname=CREATE-PLAYLIST.BAT
    SET version=1.0.2
    TITLE=%batchname%, Version %version%

    REM Set the name of the playlist to create in each folder
    SET playlist="playlist.m3u"
    REM Create list of valid file extensions
    SET

    SET validExtn=%validExtn%.

    REM Check a folder has been passed
    IF NOT EXIST %1 GOTO NoParams
    IF %~z1 GTR 0 GOTO NoParams

    REM Remove all existing "playlist.pls" files otherwise files will be

    appended
    FOR /R %1 %%G IN (%playlist%) DO IF EXIST %%G DEL "%%G"

    REM Iterate through every file and pass the path to :WriteToPlayList
    FOR /R %1 %%G IN (*.*) DO CALL :WriteToPlayList "%%G"

    GOTO:EOF

    REM If no match found in list of extensions exit function

    REM ================================
    REM 1.0.3 11/05/2010 Added full file path

    REM 1.0.1 12/07/2005 Original still had some test code in
    REM 1.0.0 12/07/2005 Initial Version


    ---------------------------------------------

    This is a very basic batch file that will create an m3u with a list of music files in the same folder. They can be multiple files extensions, doesn't matter.

    There is one thing that I cannot get the way I want it; I would like to change the file name from "playlist.m3u" to "foldername.m3u". The problem is, when I use %~n1.m3u it uses the folder that I run the batch file with (and rightly so). Do you know of a way to change this?

    I am afraid batch files are not my forte.
