Default Making your own playlists for Samsung YP-K3 / K5

Since this has been stickied, I should probably explain why we need the prog!

For people who have experience in managing your media files and synching your player with your PC, you'd probably find WMP or mediamonkey does the job quite well for K3 and K5s, and you probably dont need to use this at all..
And for those of you who have actually tried SMS5, you'll notice that everytime when you create albums (playlists), the program will copy all the music files on the list to your player, and you can choose not to overwrite the files that are already there. The downside is, you cant really sort them into folders in your player if you do so, well, at least for me I couldnt figure out how :/

So what happens if we want to just drag and drop our mp3s, sort them in nice little folders and create a playlist from there?
If you are using FW 1.04 to 1.09 (MTP versions), you can do this quite easily in Winamp's media library. Just find your device, create a playlist and add songs from your device to the playlist. Though after that the playlist file will still be invisible to the user :/
If you've upgraded to later firmwares, 1.43/4.03/4.06 (UMS versions), if you create playlists using SMS5, you'll notice that they are using .spl playlists, which can be found in your playlist folder. So if you already have your media files nicely sorted in your player, you still can create playlists easily on the go.. just follow the steps below.

Oh and btw, .wpl playlists should be supported too, but somehow I cant get it to work..

*The converter can be dlded at the next post*

Default Making your own playlists for Samsung YP-K3 / K5

Heres the program that converts .m3u8 playlists to .spl

Instructions:
-Make sure you have firmware 1.43 or later
(this allows your player to be used as a USB mass storage drive)

-Add songs to winamp directly from your player, e.g H:\music\spears.mp3

-Save your playlist directly to your player, e.g H:\Playlist\myplaylist.m3u8
(this prevents your generated playlists from adding "H:" before file paths)

-It is important that u save as .m3u8 and not m3u since the conversion deals with unicode characters.

-Open the program, browse for your playlist in the mp3 player drive, e.g H:\Playlist\myplaylist.m3u8

-Click convert!

-You can delete the *.m3u8 playlist after that if you like

-This program is tested and works fine for chinese and japanese characters.

1.02(19/05/2006) - Added *.m3u support. Works only if the saved .m3u is in unicode. If in doubt, save as *.m3u8 in WinAmp.

1.03(
02/08/2008) - Playlist song paths now omit drive letters.

1.03 (02/08/2008) - Uploaded source code! Its in MFC C++. I do apologise as I wrote this ages ago and hence not properly commented.

Ha! I might have to switch back to 1.43 for this. And I just got my collection redone and synced with mediamonkey and 1.03 firmware.

You mean you're using your player as MTP? I personally think UMS is way better.

You need MFC80U.dll for it to work. Get it here: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...s.shtml?mfc80u

Thanks m1lk, for mentioning AnythingButiPod in the credits of your app!

Ah, that might be true for XP... I'm running Win2000 SP4, and I just put the DLL in the app's folder - worked fine.

Does your app need .NET installed too?

From what I see(and assume) everytime you have a new playlist in, at the boot screen the player checks if all the paths in the playlist are valid, and possibly caches the playlist.. so it takes a few 'samsung-ripples' before it gets started

Nice post and good work, m1Lk!

This is appreciated.. and I agree the Korean firmware is superior, if lack of id3 tag browsing is not a big deal for you. Thanks Again!

What a cool app !!!

There are some wishlist for next version though:

1. Able to convert multiple file at once (now I have to do it one by one).
2. Since using mediamonkey can create the unicode playlist still with *.m3u extension, the current version limits its extension to *.m3u8. Therefore I had to rename the *.m3u to *.m3u8 everytime i need to convert to spl.
Hopely the next version can cope with these limitations.

Nevertheless it's a great app !

I have enabled opening of .m3u files, however it is up to the user to save as unicode, if not the conversion will (might) not be successful. If chinese, jap, korean characters are included in your playlist, and you did not save as unicode, then the generated playlist will not work on your player

Download the updated version at the 2nd post^^

Enabled opening m3u files --> works great, thanks a bunch ! no renaming m3u8 to m3u anymore.
Mediamonkey can save to m3u unicode so this shouldn't be a problem.

Multiple file conversion --> please please pretty please add this heheheehe

Dear M1LK,

I've just discovered a minor bug with your program. I am converting directly from m3u to spl using the updated version, and it seems that the first song in the playlist is always omitted.

If you kindly enough to fix it ... hehehehe

Regards,

Ferdiyan
