Playlist problem

Hi,

 

I'm creating playlist on a clip+ player with osx. I use the command line so I'm sure about the content.

 

the playlists work ONLY when the playlist file are in the same folder of the playlist file;if I try to add to the playlist files that are in subfolder they will not be showed when I open the playlist on the player, while I can use the same playlist on my computer (vlc, cog, itunes...)

 

Is it this behaviour normal ? it'd be quite useless to make playlist that cannot contain files that are in subfoleders....

 

 

Cheers

Re: Playlist problem

In your playlist, are the folder listed as part of the path to the file?  For example this is a playlist I have (this is in m3u format):

Re: Playlist problem

Yes, there is the complete path to the file, without the folder MUSIC, like your playlist - the only differece are the slashes: on os x and linux the slash is "/", while on windows is "\"

 

I've tried to convert the slash and now the playlist works... not that great, but at least I know why Smiley Tongue

 

Thanks for your answer!

Re: Playlist problem

it's just a different standard, and we could talk a lot about it, but that's not the point.

 

In this case, sandisk should support both the slashes - I hope in a future firmware update Smiley Happy
