It doesn't seem to work for large playlists (over 400 entries?) It finds matches for the missing files, but is unable to save a playlist file with the changed locations. That's a deal-killer for me. Don't make the mistake of selecting a large number of files and then selecting "Replace Entries" in the vain hope of changing the folder name for those files manually. You will have to hit cancel hundreds of times or terminate listFix from Task Manager. UPDATE: I found the problem, and it isn't the size of the playlist. The problem is that listFix apparently doesn't update its internal list of the contents of the "media directories" when it is started. If it is possible that the contents of any of these folders changed since listFix was last run (always, in my case), you need to click the "Refresh" button. It would prevent much confusion if listFix did this automatically on startup.
A program that solves problems with broken playlists. If you've moved files or slightly altered their names, this tool will help you fix that with exceptional simplicity; bringing playlists back to life.
Awsome work !! I don't really like the fact that JSE is required but the pro is that it's portable and does not need an installer. I originally though it was designed for Winamp but it is not and works based on M8U and Library location; For Winamp users on Windows 7/8: the playlists are located here: %APPDATA%\Winamp\Plugins\ml Thanks for putting this together, it's an amazing tool.
One of the magical programs that does what it does, perfectly! Saved me hours of manually editing playlists when I moved them from one computer to a portable drive. The author was happy to help me sort out one issue that was my fault...his friendly email was most helpful. The help file could be tweaked but overall a great programme!
I've had listFix now for several years now, I've tried other programs before i found listFix and they all sucked. This is the BEST little program you can ever ask for and i'll never use any other.
