Cross LE: m3u playlist import issues

Postby Mamboking on 02 Feb 2009, 08:06

M3u playlist import via drag&drop or file import menu will only work if

a) m3u file sits in the same directory as the audio file
b) m3u file does not contain any audio file path info

Example #1:
audio file: m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3
m3u file: m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.m3u

m3u file dataset:
#EXTINF:327,Steve Vai - Hand On Heart
Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3

No problems here.

Example #2:
audio file: m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3
m3u file: m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.m3u

m3u file dataset:
#EXTINF:327,Steve Vai - Hand On Heart
m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3 (containing full mp3 file path)

Result: Filename error in playlist window (file not accessible):

m:\music\m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3

Same here:

Example #3:
audio file: m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3
m3u file: m:\playlists\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.m3u (m3u file in separate directory)

m3u file dataset:
#EXTINF:327,Steve Vai - Hand On Heart
m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3 (containing full mp3 file path)

Result: Filename error in playlist window (file not accessible):

m:\playlists\m:\music\m:\music\Steve Vai - Hand On Heart.mp3

Source of error: During file import, Cross seems to automatically put the m3u file path in front.

Thanks for your report Mamboking,

I will try and recreate this problem my end.

What update version of Cross are you using and can you tell us what software your using to create the *.m3u files if not Cross its self.

Regards,
Bryan

Ok, i can confirm this issue with Cross 1.2.0 Alpha...

The *.m3u playlist file returns file path native to its location while extending to the actual file location relevant to its full path...

C:/Users/Bryan/Music/Playlists/I:/_MY DVS/breaks/funky breaks/Tom Scott - Sneakin' In The Back _4B.mp3

The development team will catch this point later today ;)

Thanks again and good work!

Regards,
Bryan

Error occurs with Cross LE 1.1.5.

M3u files created with MediaMonkey Gold 3.1 (via playlist export script).

Cheers, R.
