Subject: Re: Feature request: Virtual Playlists
From: Jean Boullier (

Since mp3DirectCut (freeware) does a lot of things with cue sheets
(including their creation) with only 42,016 bytes (under Windows!) the
size of the code should not be a problem in Rockbox. However the
processing time and the memory size would probably be a serious handicap
in the Jukeboxes. I would rather advise you to use mp3DirectCut in your
PC to slice your big file into small ones (easier to handle) which can
be chained seamlessly thanks to a small playlist or an appropriate
naming scheme.

After a previous long thread on long recordings one or two weeks ago I
have tried it on a full concert from a DVD and I am very happy with the
1. direct digital recording of the DVD sound from the DVD reader into
the JBR,
2. then upload of the long full concert mp3,
3. creation of one file per title with mp3DirectCut
4. easy naming and tagging of the elementary files with mp3DirectCut
and/or MusicMatch
5. erasing of the big mp3 file and downloading of the small ones in the JBR.

Steps 1 and 2 can probably be replaced by using a PC program (e.g.
DivX?) but I wanted to test the digital recording capability of my JBR.

In addition mp3DirectCut allowed me to easily edit 3 "blanks" of the DVD
(2 between titles and one in the middle of an applause sequence!).
