Droplet adds files, creates playlists based on folder name(s)

For macOS 10.10 or later. Drag-and-drop one or more folders containing media files on this droplet (or double-click it to select a single folder via an open dialog); it will recursively add each file to iTunes and then distribute the tracks to playlists created on-the-fly and named using your choice of:

  • the name of each file's containing folder
  • the folder heirarchy containing the file
  • the track's "Album - Artist" tags (if available)

If dropped files already exist as track entries in iTunes they will still be copied to the playlists. The same track will not be added to a playlist more than once.

Action shot:

Drop to Add and Make Playlists in action

Options are displayed after dropping a folder of files on the droplet.
