I’m looking for the format of m3u8 files so I can maually create playlists of songs with special characters in them. Manually creating m3u files is no problem for me. I just create a file called playlist.m3u that look something like this:
#EXTM3U song1.mp3 song3.ogg
Without the header & extension, “file playlist.m3u” identifies this as:
playlist.txt: ASCII text
Now I create a file called playlist.m3u8 that look something like this:
#EXTM3U song1.mp3 fußball.mp3 song3.ogg
Without the header & extension, “file playlist.m3u8” identifies this as:
playlist.txt: UTF-8 Unicode text
Sounds good, but when I bring it up on the clip only the 1st & 3rd songs are listed. Something is missing in this format. Anyone know what it could be? Even though the file is UTF-8 it is still treated like an m3u file instead of an m3u8 file.
I also noticed that special characters don’t display properly in the playlist filename itself. I assume this is due to the file system on the clip and is unrelated to the problem listed above.
