watching playlist in – copy newly added songs

Get help. Get answers. Let others lend you a hand.

Moderator: Mr_Noodle


is there any chance to have Hazel watching a (smart) playlist in and put a copy of every newly added song (the mp3/m4a file) to another folder? Maybe with the help of an Apple script? (which I'm unfortunately not competent enough to write ...)

I know this is quite a specific task, but if there's any chance to get this done, it would extremely simplify my personal workflow. If this is possible, but only with an Apple script, I would even pay for the efforts if somebody could write it for me.

Thanks so much in advance for your efforts!

Hazel can't really monitor playlists as they are an internal part of the Music app and not something in the filesystem. You'd need either a script or some special software made to interface with the Music app specifically.

Thanks a lot for the answer, Mr_Noodle – appreciated. I'll figure something else out – keep up the great work with Hazel! Happy weekend!
