Ok, I understand that. Is replacing the dependency on ListView something you already plan for the future? I was hoping to use Tuniac as an music file manager and shuffle player on my music library which contains several thousand directories and hundreds of thousands of files without having to create multiple playlists. In other words, one very large playlist. Will that eventually be possible?

You might consider something like ObjectListView (details on sourceforge.net) just a thought.

hmm maybe I am wrong about the limit of listviews even.. can you give me a copy of your db?

Should be in:
C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Tuniac
I want both
Playlists.dat
and
TuniacMediaLibrary.dat

Zipping them should reduce the size considerably.

I just tested adding more files and got to 40057 fine, I do not think there is any walls for a long way beyond that.

This may depend on your version of Windows. I believe in the past Listviews were limited to 32768 items, but perhaps this was fixed in later versions of Windows.
I am using Windows 8, what are you running?

It obviously takes 5-10seconds to read/write the ML to disk on close and open, but its passable. Text filtering was slower but still extremely quick on my Intel Core 2 Quad Q9600 2.67ghz.
Also memory usage goes up with the ML itself as it is sitting entirely in memory when Tuniac is running.
