[FIXED] M3U files on Playbook

Post by hytran » Fri Aug 24, 2012 4:14 pm

I see that there are those on Android that have a similar problem. Playbook M3U files that have been sync'd with Desktop Manager show up in Neutron, show the correct count of tracks but does not list those tracks, thus there is no way to enqueue the playlist.

Since you've asked for this information in other threads, here is a sample line from my M3U:

file:///store/music/Media%20Sync/Scorpions/Moment%20of%20Glory/07%20-%20Here%20in%20My%20Heart.mp3

Regards...

Thank you very much for the report. I will check the problem. At a glance, from the path you kindly provided, it looks like music file is stored remotely in cloud storage of music service. Am I correct? Would you please comment.

No, these were all synced to the Playbook from my laptop via RIM's Desktop Manager. All files reside on the device.

I don't stream, I don't do clouds ;)

Thank you very much for the reply. Could you please mention what is the path to that music file if you are using some file explorer. It shall start from /shared folder.

It's the same, substituting /share for /store:

/share/music/Media%20Sync/Scorpions/Moment%20of%20Glory/07%20-%20Here%20in%20My%20Heart.mp3

It goes without saying that the built-in player works with the paths in the M3U file.

Thanks again for your help. I love the app otherwise.

Ok, thank you very much for I info, it looks like it will be not problematic to implement support for such path.

Unfortunately I was testing on Windows dev. machine but had to do real life test on PlayBook too (was sure all is ok) :(. Due to excessive slash in /shared/music the path can't be opened by PlayBook OS it shall be shared/music. Will check it on PlayBook and make another delta release. I hope it gets validated by RIM on Monday - Tuesday.
