Project description

Tools to create amd manage an m3u playlist Documentation Status



pip install m3u-manage



Analyze a playlist for the most common terms appearing in filenames.

m3um analyze DIRECTORY_NAME

Produces output like:

m3u-manage 0.2.2
90: cbc
47: true
47: season
45: patrol


Create interleaved playlists by inserting from playlists with even spacing.

m3um mesh -o OUTPUT.m3u FILE1.m3u FILE2.m3u FILE3.m3u ...

Produces output like:

m3u-manage 0.2.2
wrote OUTPUT.m3u


Curate playlists based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria in the provided .json file.

m3um curate --config example.json

Produces output like:

m3u-manage 0.2.2
write TV/cars.m3u
write TV/trucks.m3u
write TV/planes.m3u


When using the curate command, a series of expressions is provided in a .json file to indicate which playlists to generate.

The following example.json creates three .m3u files based on the videos present in the /TV directory. The cars and trucks playlists will contain any filename that matches the regular expressions.

The planes example specifies criteria for inclusion and exclusion, both as regular expressions. According to the exclusion criteria, all shuttles belong in the trucks playlist.

    "path": ".",
    "subdirs": ["TV"],
    "patterns": {
        "cars": "(car|auto|sedan)",
        "trucks": "(truck|bus|shuttle)",
        "planes": {
            "include": "(jet|plane|rocket)",
            "exclude": "shuttle"
