Method for copying saved playlist files to flashdrive
« on: July 16, 2015, 09:33:20 »
I use various simple mp3 players with flash cards
the random function is  not very random out of a 700 file playlist I seem to hear about 50 songs all the time
I've been using Clementine which insists on organizing the files alphabetically
I'd be happy if I could copy the files in the order of the playlist
Suggestions?

The included plugin "export" can copy selected songs to a given folder (for example the folder where your player is mounted). It's very very basic, but maybe it can do what you want.

Hi

This is a very interesting question for me as well.
I wanna copy all the files in my current playlist onto a sd-card or thumb-drive.
But i wanna keep exactly the same play order.
I do understand that, depending on the external player the sequence is following the way the other system is organised.
That's why, maybe a new field or tag get's exported as well which let's me sort the playlist according to that ...
Any ideas how to achieve that ? I am talking about appr. 200 songs which i wanna play always in that play order ...
The reason for doing so is that i wanna have a second backup computer which can replace my main system if this is dying suddenly and i can just continue playing the songs from the old one even on a simple player software like deadbeef or alike ...
