I want to build a (powershell) script which is creating a playlist of my nas music library.

Because of lack of import music recursively I want to create a .nml file which I want to import it into the Traktor.


I see the nml files is XML based. So.. that looks not too difficult.

Has someone already tried this to create?

    So I can put all the files (recursive) in one playlist. Which can be imported.

    But I also want to create a folders, but that don't work because when importing everthing are still going in one playlist.

    So it is a little succes.

    Pretty sure Traktor imports recursively. When you drag 'n drop a folder into Traktor all the sub folders also get imported.

    Network drives might need to be mapped.

    You can import playlist files, but be sure they are not UTF8 (.m3u yay, .m3u8 nay)

    There are some open source programs on github that do create .nml files. Maybe you can ge inspiration from them.

    Good luck, have fun.

    Yes it will imported recursive.

    But the folder structure is lost.

    How many songs can be in one playlist?

    And recursive is very slow.

    If you do a folder without subfolders It takes 5 min.

    Selecting the songs a lot faster. Several seconds.

    The folder has the same number of songs
