      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

M3U Playlist Bug

4 posts in this topic

I have an Android head unit in my car and i'm very happy with using Poweramp as my main music player application, but i have a problem with playing m3u Playlist files.

My musics are stored in Usb memory like this :  "/Post Modern JukeBox/Unknown Album/Blue Christmas.mp3" ,    "/Post Modern JukeBox/Unknown Album/Creep.mp3"  , "/Dean Martin/Unknown Album/Blue Christmas.mp3"

Then I have M3U playlist files at the root of Usb memory and one of them has an entity exactly like this : "/Post Modern JukeBox/Unknown Album/Blue Christmas.mp3".

Problem is when  i play this m3u file with Poweramp it plays "/Dean Martin/Unknown Album/Blue Christmas.mp3" not  "/Post Modern JukeBox/Unknown Album/Blue Christmas.mp3".

 

How can i fix this ?

Thanks.

And are the paths listed in the .M3U file exactly the same (relative to the USB root location) as the files themselves?

If the .M3U file is also stored in the root of the USB (same placed as the folders) then the leading "/" is not strictly necessary and might be backing up a level in the Android file system, causing PA to try to guess the locations. Worth trying without the leading "/".

ı just tried your suggestion but nothing changed. 

Can you please try the same thing on your device? M3U file contains different songs with same name but in different directories.

Where are your song files located, and also where is the playlist file? And then could you post the exact contents of the playlist file (try editing it down to just two lines, to see that simplified version still causes the same problem). I've not seen this problem with my playlists, but I don't think I have any identically named folders.
