YouTube Playlist Maker/Sharer

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

To first explain, this does not actually create a playlist on YouTube.com. It's just one to make a stand-alone playlist on your PC that you can listen to on YouTube. I wanted to quickly share my "Current" song listings with friends, so I thought this up.

What it does is:

You create a playlist name, and then load that playlist. From there you can add/remove songs and then play the play list.

In the play section you can play, skip or go back on the list.

There are instructions to how to share your playlist with others, its not complicated. You just have to share your .INI.

Here are some screen shots.

I know its not much of a looker, I was just going for convenience.

I would eliminate the msgbox's when you try to navigate to a next/previous song when you're at either end of the list. Use a Beep command instead to give a warning, but get rid of the message box as it gets in the way and annoying very quickly. Beep(500, 10) would be a start as a replacement.

View Playlists should be renamed to Select Playlist or something similar to match its function. Also, you should save the last selected playlist in the ini file and have it loaded on next start up rather than having to select one every time.

Just a couple of suggestions.

Nice suggestions, although I don't like the Beep. I will keep the Msgbox's for now. If I get a bunch of complaints I will find an alternative. I have edited the first post.

I will be releasing an updated version soon (when I have more time) that will save the last re-sized GUI/Controls.

Let me know what you guys think.

I've updated the first posts downloads with the following additions:

  • Added a minimize button to both the main gui and the play gui
  • Added a hotkey feature for Next & Previous song
  • Fixed a bug for adding a song if there is no song currently playing

I decided not to go with the auto-save the re sized GUI. I didn't think it was needed. I hope to make the code & GUI cleaner and neater looking soon, but at the moment I don't have time for an over-haul. I want to make the GUI look nice and sleek to, if anyone wants to help with that it would be awesome :D (Not that artistic)

I don't like the MsgBox's use a label instead. Also BrewManNH gave you feedback earlier, I have examples where no one has posted any feedback, but I look at this in a positive sense as generally people post when they have a problem or a suggestion.

I see the problems now with the MsgBox's. If you are also in a Full Screen app (Like a game) and you reach the end, you would get minimized or at least some color distortions. So I edited those away and wen't with labels. Now in the bottom right corner each time you reach the end/start you will get a 5 second warning that it was reached.

First post was updated. I wen't ahead and removed the .zip because there's no real reason to have it since everyone here knows how to run scripts :D

First post updated, I realized I set the shortcut commands to only do

If WinActive, instead of If WinExists.

Fixed that, and removed all Global declarations that were not used.

Seems YouTube changed their AutoPlay for opening a link to = off. So I gotta find a way to control that feature in order to play a song automatically. When I finish learning their API I will post an update.
