Keep playlists.dat

Post by Sigurd » Wed Apr 19, 2017 8:07 pm

Sometimes, when I have added some edits in a few places I delete the data and let tuniac rebuild the database. I pick up little changes I may have missed and I know everything is as accurate as possible.

I assume its reasonable to not delete Playlists.dat if I want to keep my playlists but refresh the base catalog. Will an inaccurate playlist fail elegantly with an 'X", or something, over the selection?

Playlist.dat and ml dat are directly related.
Playlist references items in the ml that may not be in the same place after a rebuild. Eg a file entry 372824 can become file 4827 after rebuild, playlist would reference the wrong file.
I do not think keeping the playlist but deleting ml is wise or would reliably work.

You can export tuniac playlists to pls or m3u. Then using tuniac settings you can chose if you want to create tuniac playlists of playlist files(pls, m3u etc) during import.
