Subject: Re: Creating playlists internally. Why?
From: Robert Hak (
Date: 2003-01-28

Hmmm.. maybe think of it this way. I know for myself I have my music
broken into genres. I have external playlists that cover Punk, Rock,
Punk+Rock, and All (these are the ones I listen to most often).

But what happens if (lets say), I want to do Soundtracks and Rock
togeather. I don't have a Soundtracks playlist, nor one of
Rock+Soundtracks. So I can 'build' an 'internal' playlist of my Rock and
Soundtracks music. Then once everything is queued Im all set.

Does that make a bit more sense?

Then this is where I'm confused I guess. My current m3u playlists,
created externally, have recursive directories now, none more than three
deep, and I haven't any problems loading them.

Maybe I've been working too hard and my brain is clouded today, but I
just don't see it. If you could please bear with me and maybe give an
example of what you mean?
