Playlist creator for the Nokia 770

This is the home page of PLCreator. It browses trough your Nokia 770 and creates a playlist of all mp3 files it can find. PLCreator is licensed under the GPL.

Download

The newest release of PLCreator is available at the Garage download page.

Usage

Install the deb package using the Application installer and launch the application from the start menu. In the application you can make three choices. If you select "Include Audio clips directory", all mp3 files in that directory are added to the playlist. If you select "Include MultiMediaCard" all mp3 files on the MMC are added to the list. The last option is "Randomize" which, surprisingly, randomizes the order of the files on the playlist.

When you click on "Execute" PLCreator creates the playlist called plcreator into your Documents directory. If there is an old playlist with the same name, it is overwritten. You can load the playlist from the audio player or by double clicking it in the file manager.

Mini-FAQ

1. Why can't I see the playlist in the file manager?

Close the file manager and reopen it. For some reason the file manager does not see files added while it is running.

2. Why can't you launch the playlist directly from PLCreator?

Because I don't know how to do that. Passing the playlist as a command line parameter to the audio player does not work. Probably you have to do some MIME/d-bus magic. If you know how to do that, please let me know so I can fix it.
