WMP Playlists
#1
I am sure there is an easy answer but if i have a client who has hundreds of playlists in windows media player 11 (wpl file extension type) how would i go about letting CQC see those so he can start those playlists without having to rebuild them in CQC

Which repository are you using? If you are using the file tag respository, it would have to be expanded to support that type of play list format in addition to the M3U type ones.

I am able to convert a wpl to a m3u but how do you have that show up in the music browser?

In the latest beta versions (which at this point are identical basically to what 3.0 will be so it's safe to use them), m3u playlists are supported. If you are using the currently format 2.4 release, then that support is not in that version.

Sergio has been working with the betas all along and will know all the ins and outs of it. So you can check with him about it, wrt to their hardware. You are already on one of the betas, just from way back. But Sergio should be able to help you get upgraded. As long as you aren't using any third party drivers, there shouldn't be much to worry about. But of course always back up your existing system first (after stopping the service) so that, absolute worst case, you can go back if you run into an issue of some sort.

Dean,

I took your advice and upgraded the support for M3U is great. Quick silly questions how can i create coverart for that playlist?

There are two special images that you put into the image repository. One is used when there's no cover art found, and the other is used for any playlists. There's not currently any way otherwise to assign specific cover art for a playlist. I guess that could be done, though it would take a little work. If there was a single playlist file in a given directory, I could look for a cover.jpg image. If there was a directory of playlists, I guess I could look for a jpeg with the same name as the playlist file or something.
