Winamp playlist title

In my old copy of WA 2.91, I was able to have seperate layouts for tracks that had ID3 tags and those that didn't. The new formatter seems pretty sophisticated, but now it doesn't seem to be able to differentiate between files that aer completely missing their ID3 tags, and those that simply have blank entries. Also, I used the full path and filename for my files wich lack ID3 tags, but it seems there is no handle for adding the filepath in the playlist entry. What I would like to see added are:

-- %filepath% - to add drive and path name to playlist entry
-- $if3(x,y) or $ifid3(x,y) - to display x if an id3 or id3v2 tag exists, and diplay y if not.

These should be easy enough to implement....

Thanks!

As an addendum, is there any way to differentiate between the contents of ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags? This would be an excellent way to create sophisticated (and flexible) titling schemes, if, for example, the formatter could manipulate %artist1%, %artist2%, %composer2%, $ifid3v2(x,y), $ifid3v1(x,y), and so on. A user could define long titles or short titles depending on Winamp's mode and the MP3 tag data.

As an addendum to the addendum, maybe a way to test the contents of a field, such as $contains(x,y,z), which would display the contents of z if y exits within x.....

anyway, I could pry go on until turned the playlist title formatter into a phreakin' programming language....

Thanks.

(click help button under pref > titles > advanced title formatting)

%filename% displays Drive:\path\to\file.mp3
$filepart(%filename%) displays file

%filepath% would display Drive:\path\to\ (yeah doesnt exist)


$if2(%artist%,No Artist) or
$if(%artist%,Yes there is an Artist,No Artist)

as for your addendums...im not sure if that would happen or not. Check out foobar2000 (another player) ...i assume it does taht sorta stuff.

How can fix the lenght of the tags? How can programming there?

the Artist-tag must have 30 caracters,the Title-tag 30,and so... So in the playlist I can see a perfect
allineament if the leght of the artist,title etc..are differents. How can do this?

Something along these lines do you mean :

[$left(%artist%,30) - ]$if2($left(%title%,30),$left($filepart(%filename%),30))

You will also need to enable Prefs > Playlist > 'Zero pad item numbers'
and use a monospaced font. Prefs > Playlist > select something like 'Courier New'

[Edit] NO, this won't work with short titles. Will get back to you if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

[later] Try this one :

[$padcut(%artist%,30) - ]$if2($padcut(%title%,30),$padcut($filepart(%filename%),30))

I used a monospaced font. like 'Courier New',enable Prefs > Playlist > 'Zero pad item numbers' and I wrote this line: [$padcut(%artist%,30) - ][$padcut(%title%,30) - ][$padcut(%comment%,4) - ][$num(%bpm%,3) - ] ALL WAS PERFECTLY YEAAAH
Thanks guys!!! Have you also a list of the functions-keys (and maybe the descriptions)..I think there is similar to BASIC language...eg. left$() - right$() - num$()....???

There's an 'ATF Help' link in the Prefs > Titles > Advanced Title Formatting, that gives a full list of commands, functions and variables.

I'm not sure that everything has been implemented though.

http://media.winamp.com/main/help/50/atf/atf.htm is the atf documentation link ujay is referring to and not what is seen via the current client release (sorry ujay but that was something i changed about a month ago in the beta version instead of the limited message shown before).

Wondeful!!! Thanks for your patient. Another question: It's possible change/insert the Tags in the "info file" form? If I want change a Tag ( like: "%key% or %publisher% or %mood%..) I must use another program,like Mp3Tag,or is possible inside Winamp?

%publisher% should be editable via the media library but not the other two you've mentioned.
