Automatic Playlist Generator | Omertron’s Media Player Site

This thing will take a directory of your choosing, scan the directory for what ever file type you pick, and then create a playlist in PCH format.

Alrighty, its still kinda in its infancy…theres definitly a few things we’re looking to add and change…but for all intensive purposes it works pretty well.  I can’t take credit for it…one of my friends made it for me, but i though i’d share it.  Any suggestions or improvments are welcome….but since i didn’t create or code it, there will be some lag time on getting anything done.

Heres a break down of how it works…

  1. Up the top…select the directory you want it to scan.  (check the box if you want it to include any subdirectories in that directory)
  2. Select the file type you want it to scan for.
  3. Enter a name of the playlist
  4. Enter the path starting after file:/// that you want the playlist link to have.  (See example below)
  5. Hit "Generate PLaylist"
  6. The file will be located in the directory you selected to scan.


If you have a internal hard drive and your files are located in the MusicMetallicaMaster Of Puppets folder on the PCH hdd.

then you’d want the "PCH Directory" to look like this….

opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK/Music/Metallica/Master Of Puppets

If its a NFS or SMB or USB connection or what ever, then you just simply plug in your Absolute path for those.

Note:  By defualt the "opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/" part will always be pre-typed into the "PCH Directory" part.  But can be erased and edited.
