as Jaikoz can correct/change both folder- & file-names, per-track as well as via mass-tagging, any existing m3u playlists can end up incorrect.

nice-to-have the ability to (re)generate playlists, in the BASE folder, when changes are made to folder-/file-name metadata.

thanks

Yes, maybe although unless you loaded as a playlist Jaikoz couldnt hope to know the song is in a playlist, however creating playlists does seem a bit out of scope for a tagger.

Not asking for any 'intelligence', only the option to create per-album/per-directory playlists

(1) select a folder of music for a given CD/album
(2) generate a playlist for that specific folder/album, named (e.g.) "Artist-Album.m3u" (perhaps defined by a filter)
(3) save the playlist to the collection's BASE folder

, nothing more.

depedns. it's a matter of perspective. 4 functions necesary to manage/use a collection

-- 'ripper' rips sources to tracks
-- 'transcoder' (often 'in' ripper) transcodes tracks
-- 'player' plays collections, manages dynamic/multialbum/extended playlists
-- 'tagger' organizes and prepares the music collection to be used/played in/on a player -- including correcting metatags, filde/folder paths, cover art file generation (all of which Jaikoz does now), and 1-per-directory playlists
