i have been playing around with m3u lists recently.

my goal is to build them on the pc (which is much easier) and then use them on the pc & xbmc at the same time.

here's how you do it...

a) create your playlist using a standard m3u builder (most apps)

b)edit the m3u with a text editor to remove any pathing specific to your pc...

example:

c:\music\no doubt\singles 1993-2003\no doubt - spiderwebs.mp3

turns into this...

no doubt\singles 1993-2003\no doubt - spiderwebs.mp3

notice there is nothing before the album folder (or however you store your music files)

you can easily do a 'replace' function and replace (in example above) "c:\music\" with nothing (i.e. leave blank / delete any characters)

c) then save the m3u

d) place the m3u in your main music folder where xbmc looks for the files.

*done*

now, xbmc will see the playlists and play them. your pc will also play the songs using the same list.

enjoy!

if you use winamp on a pc and build all your playlists relative to a common folder, it automatically strips all the leading path info. just a little timesaving tip.
