    Playlists on buttons

    Hi, i can't put playlists on the preset buttons on radios with LMS 7.9 ( 7.9.0 - 1436858598).
    They are always empty. With LMS 7.7.3 there was no problem.
    All my m3u playlists have relative paths inside.
    Also testing with absolute paths is successful!
    Any idea, what is changed with 7.9?

    Nothing else changed this would work in 7.7.3, but not 7.9?

    Could you please upload your server.log file right after you've tried to
    play a playlist this way?

    Hi Michael,
    here are the files (log+m3u) in a zip file.
    1Joerg_Soundtrack.m3u with realtive paths.
    TEST.m3u the same collection build on the radio by manual save to favorites, then with absolute paths!
    It seems that the path ../../Soundtrack/ is rebuild to file:///Soundtrack/ that is wrong.
    It must be rebuild to file:///volume1/music/Soundtrack/

    Both playlists can be played from the playlist menu without problems and without log output in the server.log!

    Where are your playlists stored? What's you music folder (as defined in
    LMS)?

    > Both playlists can be played from the playlist menu without problems and

    But what would you get if you played them from a Preset button?

    And this still works in 7.8?

    Could you please provide the full server.prefs file? That would give use
    more information about your setup.

    Playlists stored in /volume1/music/Playlist/
    Music folder is /volume1/music/

    I upgrade from the orig 7.7.3 to orig 7.9.0-061 then parallel installation of Repack 7.9.0 - 1436858598
    In the 7.7.3 everthing was correct with the playlists, in both 7.9 the playlists can be played directly from the menu and only the playlists with absolute paths can be played from buttons.
    V7.8 was not tested.

    If you really use ../../Soundtrack in your playlist, then I'm surprised
    they do work at all. After all walking up from /volume1/music/Playlist
    would result in an invalid folder.

    Is there any good reason why you want to rely on some magic fixing your
    invalid paths for you? Wouldn't it be safer to just use valid paths to
    start with?

    I had build the playlists (over 900!) many years ago semiautomatic!
    We can use this playlists directly in all programs on the pc's (foobar2000), browser...
    Independent of the real file system where the music resides, on a windows server, linux server, nas...

    example for nas:
    real location of playlists
    /volume1/music/Playlist/Soundtrack/CasinoRoyal.m3u

    inside m3u ../../Soundtrack/James Bond/Casino Royal/01 - Casino Royale Theme (Main Title).mp3
    I have always 1 subfolder in ../Playlist, so the ../../ links always to music/

    real file structure
    /volume1/music/Soundtrack/James Bond/Casino Royal/01 - Casino Royale Theme (Main Title).mp3

    So i can start the m3u's by doubleklick directly in the windows explorer.
    With absolute paths inside the playlists, we can not start the playlists this way, respectively use the playlists inside foobar or other programs / tools!

    With LMS 7.7.3 everything was all right with this construction.
    And these playlists can still be used directly in the playlist menu inside own music menu! In 7.7.3 also in 7.9.0!!
    But not on the buttons in 7.9.0!


    I hope i could explain my way...
    so where is / was the magic fixing?

    Ok, I think I've found (and fixed) that bug. Please update your
    installation and try again. Thanks!
