Subject: RE: playlists
From: Matt Evans (
Date: 2004-05-28

It is strange indeed. I think most of the time I will be creating playlists
in winamp and these work fine in rockbox.

I did look at scripting in winamp but it's probably easiest therefore for me
to load the m3u into a text editor and do a replace of all the / to \.



-----Original Message-----

Strange -- Winamp doesn't recognize paths with a forward slash as absolute
paths when loading the playlist and prepends the current path.
  However, if you were to move the playlist to the root directory and play
from there, Winamp would play all the tracks correctly.

This sounds like a problem with Winamp and not something that should be
fixed in Rockbox. Possible workarounds:
1. Store all your playlists in the root directory 2. Write a small script to
convert the forward slashes to backslashes (doesn't Winamp provide a
scripting mechanism?)
