Playlist Problems

Post by Mike23 » Sun Oct 28, 2007 4:25 am

Does anyone here have playlist problems with Twonky v4.4.2? For me, my playlists will sometimes disappear. Also, when I have playlists, I noticed that Twonky behaves very odd. Cidero will have trouble accessing the Twonky server and the Roku will have trouble detecting it during startup. Does anyone else have a similar problem? Is there any resolution to this bug on the way?

Not sure if this will resolve your issue, but I did experience an issue with playlists "disappearing" when accessing the server from an MP-101.

I originally had song files and playlists in two different locations on the same drive... F:\Audio and F:\M3U_Playlists. I created a subfolder the audio directory (F:\Audio\Playlists) and copied all the M3U playlists into it. I haven't had issues with playlists correclty displaying since.

Its from a real playlist.

Form the directory, this playlist is located in, go one up ".."
and then play in the directory the song "/ACDC/song.mp3"

Note: On linux machine there is no "c:/" or something like this. Therefore I did it like this.
