XMMS made M3U playlists


Hi!

I have an iRiver HP120, a 20 gig MP3 player. It can handle M3U playlists. So I made some, in Winamp, in Windows, all worked fine. No that I have Linux, I ripped some music (took me a day or two, but I managed), and I created and M3U with XMMS. But my MP3 player gives me an error when I try to open it. Furthermore; if I open a Winamp made playlist in XMMS it's completely screwed up...
What's this all about???

Thanks!

Lex

Join the club. I never could get XMMS to save and load M3U lists properly. Don't get me wrong, I love XMMS and use it often. I just have to use it listing all my MP3's.

That's kinda why I use Mplayer more. It uses standard .txt playlists and I can add or remove and sort in any order I want and it will just work.

Again, not dogin XMMS and I think if I did a little research I could probably get it working but I just found a better solution.

If you really wanted the M3U playlists you could try running winamp through wine, and just saving it like you would in windoze

i think winamp is officially supported by wine

wine is a windoze emulator, it allows you to run windoze programs/games in linux

http://www.winehq.com/
all the information (ie. installing, running.) should be in that site ^^

Hi,
just tried to install winamp under wine, doesn't work though. When I say
$>wine ~/.wine/.../winamp.exe
I get two X-bars (no window) and X gets quite corrupted until I kill wineserver.
Any idea what that is all about?

Cheers, Carsten

Lex,
you should give Winamp Playlist Creator (http://download.pchome.de/3263,winam...st-creator.htm)
a try. It runs stable under wine. Actually I just had the same problems about xmms-playlists for my
ihp140 as you reported. I think with this executable it will work out.

Carsten
