Default Can the R0 read .m3u playlists?

Hi,

I made a playlist from some tracks in some folders using Winamp and stored it in 3 files (.m3u, .m3u8 and .pls). The R0 seems to recognize only the .m3u file (at least it marks the .m3u file with a blue icon - see attachment). However, when I try to open the playlist, the R0 only says "No Files". Winamp doesn't have any problems with this playlist. Is there a special "Samsung Playlist Format", or doesn't it work simply? I't like to use my own playlists rather than the 5 in the Playlists folder of the player.

Theorically it cannot read m3u playlists.
The R0 reads SPL playlists.

The easiest way is to use EmoDio to make you PC compatible playlists.
You can do it with winamp but then you have to use a software to convert your m3u playlists into spl, that's not an easy way

What does the file format of SPL playlists look like? I could write a conversion tool or script. I don't want to install EmoDio if it can be avoided...

Several people already make their own conversion tool

Maybe you can use this tuto with a google translation:
http://forum.generationmp3.com/index...dpost&p=581146

I'm sure if you google you can find a tutorial in english with another tool etc...

The SPL playlist is a file like that:
Quote:
SPL PLAYLIST
VERSION 1.00

\Music\Beyond Samsung.mp3
\Music\Flash Flash.mp3

END PLAYLIST

Has to be in UNICODE UCS-2 Little Endian. In ANSI format, it displays "no file"

After playing around a little, I have managed to make a playlist! It's the same way as described on GMP3. However, I wasn't able to access the mp3 files on the memory card. If I write, for example:

Code:
SPL PLAYLIST
VERSION 1.00

\Music\Genre\Artist\Track 1.mp3
\Music\Genre\Artist\Track 2.mp3

END PLAYLIST
and copy this as Sample.fav to the memory card, the player will search for these mp3 files on the internal memory but not on the memory card. I think the paths have to be preceded by a drive identifier, but what could this be?

You cannot add a music on microSD to a playlist directly from the R0 so it doesn't surprise me you cannot do it from the PC either

It's quite logical as it's possible sometimes you don't insert a microSD or you put another microSD. Then the R0 could not make the link between the playlist and the missing files... Don't you agree?

BTW did you manage to make it work on the internal memory instead?
I did not

Yes, on the internal memory it works.

If a file reference in a playlist to a file on a memory card can't be found, the track could simply be skipped (like Winamp does).

Okay I got it to work on the internal memory
The extension may be .spl (PC playlist) or .fav (R0 playlist)
But in any case you cannot rename the playlist on the R0, nor add a music to it.

Indeed... But it's Samsung... Never forget that

I'm not a Linux user, I just wonder if it should be possible - and of some use - to create on the R0 root a symbolic link to Music directory on the mSD (or something like).

What is a SPL playlist? Trying to read up on it but can't find anything through google. It keeps forcing me to WPL instead.

Also, does anyone know if there is a m3u to spl converter for Mac?

Edit: Just stumbled upon an online m3u to spl conveter. Has anyone used this before? If it works, its a major deciding factor on me getting a R0.

Also, can we ask/beg Samsung for M3u support? I was reading lebellium's 1.24 firmware post and he mentioned something about the R&D team knowing about his requests. Do they actually listen to us (users)?

SPL is the specific playlist format of Samsung.
The online M3U>SPL converter works

No Samsung doesn't listen to users. They only listen to me when it deals with bugs. But they don't listen to anybody when it deals with adding or improving features. So don't expect m3u support.

Well at least the converter works. If I get a R0, I can at least use playlists until/if Rockbox gets ported.
