I'm new to media monkey. I downloaded this extension hoping to be able to access my playlists in Serato DJ. Is there a tutorial on how to actually use it?
I’m not aware of a detailed tutorial, but the description on github should give you some good hints on how to use it: https://github.com/fvdpol/MM-ExportITun ... libraryxml

Your use-case sounds quite similar like mine: manage you library using playlist in MediaMonkey, and use these from you dj application (Traktor for me, Serato for you); so you should be good :-)
Do you run the script per playlist or does it export all of them? Also where does it export them to?

Hi, There is no need to do that Open Serato and MM and Drag and Drop Selection of files to Serato.

How do I use this? I'm pretty new to media monkey, but I want to be able to export my media monkey playlists to itunes so I can use them in Serato DJ.

I haven't tried recently (on MM5 now), but iTunes is still functional and has not been discontinued on Windows.

Thanks Lowlander!

So this script still works to export playlists from MM to iTunes?

That's pretty much the only reason I have iTunes installed - to be a middle man from MM to Plex.

iTunes isn't dead:
On June 3, 2019, Apple announced that iTunes will be replaced in macOS Catalina by separate applications for Music, Podcasts, and TV. Finder will also be able to perform the device management capabilities previously contained within iTunes. This increases continuity with iOS, where they are also separate apps. This change will not affect Windows or older macOS versions.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITunes

iTunes will be split in several applications on the new MacOS, that's all that Apple has announced about iTunes so far. Even if Apple would discontinue iTunes altogether, it's a software, it would still work and do the trick in this scenario, you'd just no longer get updates or security fixes.

Is this script dead now that iTunes is getting nixed?

I'm trying to keep my Plex playlists updated using an export to iTunes, but wasn't sure if this would do the trick.

Is it possible to do manual export.
Could you add please option in setting to change export time.
Standard/default way of working is to manually trigger the export (either via Tools>Scripts>Export to iTunes XML or via toolbar button).

The configuration allows for two additional ways for automatic export; either periodic (every 60 minutes) or at shutdown of MediaMonkey.

I checked your linked mockup and it looks pretty good.

While in my case I agree with Lowlander regarding the need for only 1 path change, however I can also foresee that other people may have media stored on multiple drives or network locations, and so limiting the path change to a single option would affect those users negatively.

(when I started out collecting music, I had files scattered all over multiple external and internal drives)

I don't think I considered having multiple paths, so your proposed solution is better thought out than my original request.

One thing that is not clear, when you wrote search and replace, in my mind that means you want to do the search/replace as a post-process, where what I was thinking to include the path replacement within the item processing loop (in-process).

ie in the track info export-
- if pathsubst == true
-- for each pathfind
--- if stored file pathdrive = pathfind then set path/drive export to pathreplacement

or something like that, so it should evaluate path before export, perform the path replacement as needed, then export using the specified replacement path.

thanks again for your efforts.

An option to replace the first part of the Path would be sufficient, remainder is identical. For me a single replace this with that would work.
