As people doing a fantastic job in porting qt apps, I thought I open up a "wish list". However thanx a lot for
a) qt and
b) porting some apps, where I already found a few very useful!!! THANX!!

Here are my wishes:

Playlistmanager

Maybe this might be an Idea for porting... I need a playlistmanager. It should be capable off:

- reading my mp3 id3 tags
- filtering/display them by Artist,Genre,etc...
- a playlistcue where I can add selected songs
- a possibility to save playlist as eg. m3u, pls

It doesn't have to necessarly:
- play songs (would be of course great to play them via Datatypes, Arexx or whatever... might be a workaround for missing sound capabilities of qt)
- download covers and other stuff via Internet

I checked a few on qt-apps.org, cannot test everyone, as they donnot have Windows binaries, there maybe some better and easier ones around:

These ones were tested on Windows and suit my needs:
- Clementine (probably to many dependencies)
- cuberok (looks promising)

These ones couldn't be tested, but might suit my needs:
- TepSonic (sources still seem to be available on git?)
- PlayListGenerator
- Phonik?
- sleek?
- yarock

Thanks again...

Hi Gerograph and Cara,

I take a look and

1) Lyrics seems not very useful.

It's based on http://teksty.org lyrics repository. I succeed to grab only 1 or 2 songs of singers that I don't know (maybe that they have change the website structure.
But if you want to take a look by yourself

http://zzd10h.amiga-ng.org/Qt/Lyrics.lha

2) Playlistgenerator,
very more interresting, thanks to libtag that I have compiled yesterday for qTagger and to a new one libid3. I succeed for a part.

http://zzd10h.amiga-ng.org/Qt/PlayListGenerator_01.jpg
http://zzd10h.amiga-ng.org/Qt/PlayListGenerator_02.jpg

I have removed phonon functions => no player and certainly no song duration indicator too.
The id3 tags modifications worjs and m3u export works too. But as you can see in the second grab, the path is unixified. Therefore, I will have to make a after procedure to replace "/Work/" by "Work;".

But it could be useful ;)


edit : and for Clementine, the cmake stage complains about Boost ;(

Thanks for trying out Clementine, it's mention of use to transfer files to an iPod is what caught my eye.

What about Audacious? It has all the features you need.

Forgot about Audacious, however considering playlistbuilding it is not as user friendly as it could be, but works... yes

But there is another character and pathproblem

Audacious m3u playlist cannot be read by e.g. Tunenet. As
1) path is wrong: e.g. file:///MP3/Motörhead.mp3 instead of MP3:Motörhead.mp3
2) for blanks, German Umlauts (ä,ö,ü...) etc. you will see other characters if you open playlist in a plain editor. Tunenet still doesn't understand that sort of characters.

@zzd10h
make sure, that Umlauts (ö,ä,ü,...), accent aigu, accent grave etc are handled correctly.

And yes you could always write a converter on top, but would be better to have straight away "Amiga compatible"

That version of boost is ancient (2006).

...and it is built for clib2, which is no good for Qt which uses newlib shared objects.

I managed to port something which used Boost by picking the bits of the library it needed and just building that. I can't even remember what it was I ported now, but it worked.

Ok, but don't tell me that this job is to be thrown away.
Some of you probably can start from here and integrate the recente changes.
Then switch to newlib if needed (I don't know the required work for that).

In my opinion this is a bug in the concept of TuneNet. "M3U" is not an Amiga format, so it should be compatible with other systems and support URL notation.

If someone likes to port Clementine he should consider, that maybe boost is not needed completely. You can compile only parts of this library. For the .docx plugin for AbiWord I needed boost, but it was only necessary to compile a small part of it.

No it isn't, Audacious m3u playlist cannot be played with either tunenet, AmigaAmp nor Winamp. Btw. Audacious m3u <> Winamp/official m3u

Could you try that please ?

edit : link removed, too much buggy !

Yesterday it worked.
It built m3u playlist compatible with AmigaAMP,
but since I changed something in Prefs:Qt, it crashs when writing m3u file. I want to know if it's a problem on my system or this program related.

1) Umlaut don't work even by changing Qt:Locale and codepage inside the program. Even copy/paste of a special character don't work (like other Qt programs, it seems)

2) At end of "File / Save " playlist processus. It created 2 files. A normal "unixified" playlist.m3u and another "Amigaified" playlist.m3u.AOS.

Thank to say me if it failed.

I'll keep checking, here are the first results:

1) Saving m3u playlist:
a) Freezes, if you untick "native menus" in qt prefs. Therefore only works, if you use AOS menus. Strange...

b) Only saves AOS playlist, when you donnot use native dialogs. If you work with ASL File Requesters, it only creates Linux like m3u file.

EDIT: next results:

2) Treeview
Only works right after starting programm. In case you choose "New", your treeview and List view on the left is empty, but once you choose "explore dir..." only list view gets filled, treeview stays empty. When adding dirs or files to existing playlist, treeview doesn't get updated either.

3) Buttons donnot work -> freezes appear, I can only use menu
(This is on X1000 with "native rendering/paint engine"

4) What is the Fileexplorer on the right side for? I cannot drag and drop or add choosen dir to the left (playlist) ?

5) I cannot delete entries in playlist

6) I cannot sort playlist by e.g. Genre or Title

7) I cannot filter by anything

8) I cannot resize columns in playlist

9) When using native menus the "recent filelist" sections stays empty

Concluding: I may miss something, but up to now, I can only list one or more directories and save them as playlist, not much use. Could do this with a list CLI command as well. Donnot know wether the author did this on purpose or didn't implement those features yet? Cannot test on other systems.

EDIT: Next results

10) If I have got directories containing Umlauts, they will be ignored...

EDIT: About playlist compatibility

All generated m3u.aos lists are Tunenet and AmigaAmp compatible However I couldn't test with "Umlauts" as all files containing them are ignored by playlistmanager.

11) Exporting playlists still use "Linux" way of saving pathes. (Which could be ignored, cannot figure out what we need xml playlist for example?

Thx for tests.
I'll check this evening which menu option I have.

What is the goal of "Native menu" ?

Which option don't create AOS playlist ?

I only checked "file / save" "file / save as" option.
There is another way in this program to save playlist ? (not in front of my Amiga)
