m3u support on WDEP


#1

Someone tried m3u playlists ? I don’t get them recognized, folders seem to be empty :frowning:


#2

The playlist entries have to point to the correct location.

If you just created an M3U through some application, the entries probably point to a location that’s based on where your PC thought the files were.

Post an excerpt of your playlist and we’ll take a look.

I managed to sort of get them working. My playlist  finds the files but plays them in alphanumeric order and not the order I added them. I used Playlist Creator 3.6.2 (freeware), I went into the playlist settings and picked the setting “absolute no drive name”, just dragged the files WDEP from the explorer onto the playlist creator and saved the m3u in either the movies or music folder.


#4

Sorry, my mistake.

The problem was that m3u file names were not visible at all like my playlist folders were empty. What I did wrong is accessing the folders from file manager icon instead of music one. Somehow I thought the file manager give you access to all files but nevermind. It works now just as should.

Btw, my playlists are created in winamp and have only relative path which I preserved when copied from PC to WDEP. Everything plays ok including the right song order.

Hi - Did you try winamp on video files? I’m getting closer but still no there yet. Could open one of your play lists in txt editor and paste it here so I can check mine look the same. Thx

I edited it and included few video files (see below). Unfortunately it ignores the order and plays in alfabetical order. I have no idea why :frowning:
