View Full Version : Problem with linked .M3U playlists

I have just started evaluating Mezzmo as a potential TVersity replacement. I have many .M3U playlists which work fine in TVersity but when I use them as linked playlists in Mezzmo none of the files show up (i.e. the playlist shows as empty).

All my files have a format like this:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:245,30 Seconds To Mars - A Beautiful Lie
\\Gamling\nas1\MusicLibrary\30 Seconds to Mars\A Beautiful Lie\A Beautiful Lie.mp3
#EXTINF:854,30 Seconds To Mars - A Modern Myth
\\Gamling\nas1\MusicLibrary\30 Seconds to Mars\A Beautiful Lie\A Modern Myth.mp3
#EXTINF:189,30 Seconds To Mars - Attack
\\Gamling\nas1\MusicLibrary\30 Seconds to Mars\A Beautiful Lie\Attack.mp3
#EXTINF:166,30 Seconds To Mars - Battle Of One
\\Gamling\nas1\MusicLibrary\30 Seconds to Mars\A Beautiful Lie\Battle Of One.mp3
#EXTINF:248,30 Seconds To Mars - From Yesterday
\\Gamling\nas1\MusicLibrary\30 Seconds to Mars\A Beautiful Lie\From Yesterday.mp3
#EXTINF:238,30 Seconds To Mars - R-Evolve
\\Gamling\nas1\MusicLibrary\30 Seconds to Mars\A Beautiful Lie\R-Evolve.mp3

and so on...

Note that all my media is stored on a separate media server machine within my domain. Adding the media with UNC paths into Mezzmo works fine, it is just linked playlists that have an issue. I really need these playlists to work 'as is' in Mezzmo.

Is there a way to make these playlists work or should I give up stick with TVersity?

Thanks

Thanks for reporting this - we'll investigate and get it fixed for the next update.

And I'm having this issue too...

Has this been fixed yet? Could it be due to these playlists having been generated from Winamp?

I'll check if it was fixed or not. Can you please send a sample playlist to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and we'll test it here.
