Unhappy Wanted: audio CD burner that will import files from a .pls playlist


I have used Rhythmbox and Guayadeque players to drag selected files into Brasero to create an audio CD or a data CD. Now I would like to use the cmus player, which can create playlist files, but I can't get Brasero to import or otherwise fill it's "files to be burned" window from a playlist file.

this one seems to be doing exactly what you want:
http://outflux.net/unix/software/mp3cd/

with gui, the most promising first:
Gnomebaker says it can Import M3u and pls audio playlists
Grip will also generate a playlist (.m3u file) of the tracks converted and put it in your $HOME/mp3/ directory.
a random forum thread

hope this helps...

Is there a version of Grip for Centos 6.4? I cannot find it in the yum repositories. Thanks!

Smile Thanks for the replies

Thank you to those who replied. I have learned some more about this issue. The playlist format that is importable by Brasero has the file extension .pls, and it is a complex format with a lot of information about each track. The playlist format that is produced by cmus and some other players is simply a list of path/and/file names (no information about the track), one track per line. Brasero cannot import this format. Therefore I have given up trying to move playlists *conveniently* from cmus to Brasero. My "solution" is just to use Guayadeque to create the playlist when I want to make a CD. This works fine. For just playing music, Guayadeque works fine also, but I kind of enjoy using cmus for its more primitive, non-Gui, simplicity. Both of these players have an ability that I really like, and that is to be able to automatically create a playlist of tracks RANDOMLY selected from a "filtered" library.

good that you solved it.
however i'm pretty sure it's possible to convert this simple playlist (which is a .m3u file, basically) to .pls, which can be fed to most burners.
