copyplaylist2 (amaroK script)

Link:  http://
Downloads:  3439
Submitted:  Mar 21 2005
Updated:  Mar 8 2006


This small script copies the current playlist to a certain directory.

For use with mobile devices like mp3-players or usb-sticks.
Can also be used to create a tree of directories for CD/DVD archiving.



1.0 (March 8th, 2006)
- configuration preset buttons replaced with user-definable configuration sets
(idea: Juan Ignacio Pumarino)
- integration in amarok context menu, blank->underscore conversion
(idea/code: Todd Sepke)
- on copy error, you can also Skip or Skip All Errors instead of just
aborting the whole copy process
- the playlist is found in arbitrary locations (needed for klik users)
- Tab order fixed, keyboard shortcuts introduced

0.5 (uploaded December 28th, 2005)
- Bugfix: Track number (%N) not available in amarok 1.3 (thanks to Steve Herrel for reporting this defect)
- added new naming component for real directory name of file (%D) and an option to remove leading text from the path name (like /home/songs)

0.4 (October 9th, 2005)
- Two bugfixes:
Script failed if there was only one track on the playlist
Starting Number setting was ignored in the actual file copy process

0.3 (August 24th, 2005)
- Added Qt GUI [Qt is supposed to be installed anyway since amaroK requires it,
only perlqt is needed in addition.]
- Renaming of files is possible with configurable format
- Directory trees are created if the name format contains slashes "/"
- Symlinks / hardlinks can be created as an alternative to copying files
- Size of current playlist is displayed and refreshed on request, allowing user
to fine-tune the playlist size until it fits in the destination directory

- Another info dialog in case of not enough free diskspace

- Checks free disk space and playlist size before it starts to copy
- Shows another dialog with playlist items

- Initial release

 v1.0 released

Hi All,

the new version of copyplaylist2 features user-defined configuration sets and has some smaller improvements. Please see the supplied README file. The existing config file is not reused due to the change to a new file format.

You will notice that the dialog does not pop up. The script runs in the background until you right-click an item in your playlist and select "Copy Playlist Files / Open CopyPlaylist2 Dialog" from the context menu, or click "Configure" in the Script Manager.

If you program in perl, get in contact with me in case you want to implement any of the remaining ToDo items or what you think would benefit this small script.

Have fun,

 Playlist title

Great job, I was looking for this functionnality long time.
I think it would be cool to have the playlist title as a variable like "%p" in addition to all others (track name, artist, etc..)

Nice tool =)
I have a wish: can you add an option to clear the directory before copy the playlist?

After executing (in Suse 10.1, Amarok 1.4.0, Kde 3.5.3) I get next error message:

Can't locate XML/Simple.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i586-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /home/hugo/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/amarok-copyplaylist2/copyplaylist2.pl line 572.

Any idea?

Forget it. Solved one instaled perl xml simple.

But keeps on not working because it needs more perl modules I don't have.

I just got a cell phone that has a very crude mp3 player. It requires all the files to be on the same folder, which is nice and annoying. I almost started to write a hack to do what this plugin does much more elegantly.

Thanks for this nice tool.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
