View Full Version : playlist sanitization (was two newbie questions)

Actually, I'm less interested in sanitizing playlists than
teaching slimserver to understand the playlists I have
already created. To my mind, that means two things:

- understanding that there's a certain drive letter that should
translate to the MP3 directory
- handling \ as a path separation character

I don't want to have two copies of every playlist - because they'll
just get out of sync.

Can someone point me to the playlist code, please? The drive
letter, as well as this behaviour, should be subject to prefs
settings, I guess.

I've solved this in the past with a patch to the Slimserver code that made
it write out it's paths with backslashes and "\\servername\share"
prepended to it.

That way WinAmp could find these files through the servershare and I
created a symlink in my Linux system's root dir so that the SLimserver
could find the files as well.

The advent of SoftSqueeze makes this a bit pointless since I don't use
WinAmp anymore... ;-)
