  • Trouble with rrpl.m3u8 (RR removes non ASCII characters) - Not RR but Winamp

    Hi

    I have trouble by resuming the playlist.
    I think the problem is, RideRunner saves the playlist not in UTF-8. But m3u8 should have utf-8. The normal m3u is ansi.
    After reloading RideRunner there are missing letters like "" and so on. So i can't play these tracks.

    edit:
    very confuse. after deleting again the rrpl.m3u8 i get always an utf-8 file.
    after lot of tests: winamp is the tool, who writes the pl sometimes in wrong format.

    OK, now i did lot of tests and i think the problem comes from RideRunner.
    Did the same Tests with Winamp (standalone) without error.

    After Closing RR it writes a new rrpl.m3u8 in cache path. and adds some other information above the track.
    there must be a problem. because sometimes few letters were deleted. so the trackpath is corrupt.

    how is the process in RideRunner?

        OK, but how can you explain this phenomen?
        The Letter "" is missing.

          #EXTINF is generated by Winamp

          and I don't see any difference

          is that notepad? use a better text editor... I use Notepad++

            I don't have winamp installed, I only got foo
            in the foo case, RR manages the playlist

              the difference is the missing letter behind "Gest"

              I opened and closed the rr.m3u8 file with winamp (standalone) more times. winamp never wrote some information in the rr.m3u8.
              Only by using RideRunner the file get the information and the non ascii letters will be deleted.

              Why does save RR on every close the new rr.m3u8 file?
              How is the process?

              BTW: it is equal which editor i use, RR get the same string of corrupt filepath, on loading.

                ok, I see the missing glyph

                what version of winamp?
                trust me RR asks winamp to write the PL...
                when rr closes, winamp is asked to save the fle


                try foobar....

                remember, if foo not installed, install foo, then reinstall RR, so that it installs the RR plugin

                I don't know what you mean by "BTW: it is equal which editor i use, RR get the same string of corrupt filepath, on loading."

                  winamp version 5.666 build 3516

                  after few tests with foobar, it's ok.
                  but foorbar is bad for me.
                  my skin is for winamp and foobar needs more than 5 seconds to start playing after RR start.
                  foobar has no avs visuals.

                  ok, to understand: when RR is closing it saves the values to rr.m3u8 and than winamp ask again to save.
                  can you skip this?

                  for BTW: the missing strings are not depended on file editors (like notepad or some other). was only an info for you

                    im not sure what is going on for you

                    rr asks winamp to save it once...

                    maybe there is some plugin in winamp that's cause the issue
                    or some setting you got

                    foobar can use the AVS visuals, with a plugin

                    also of note, for rr, its best not to use any skin for winamp
                    just use classic

                    but 1st look at all plugins... in winamp
                    rr asks winamp to save pl, then copies winamp.m3u8 to rrpl.m3u8

                      I'm using Winamp in classic skinmode.
                      No extra plugins.

                      If i test the playlist in winamp without RideRunner, there are no problems. winamp don't overwrite the playlist file.

                      list of usual installed winamp plugins:

                        im sure its something...

                        like I said, rr ASKS winamp to SAVE the PL... then copies it to RRPL
                        that's all it does!

                        best bet would be to send me the mp3 in question...via my ftp...

                          OK i zipped some files.
                          the biggest problem is, the issue comes unregular.

                          or could there be a problem on startup?

                              i can not find out when it happen.
                              some starts and closes of RR, nothing.
                              some time later, the problem exist.

                              today i did lot of start and close RR loops, before 12:00 PM (GMT +1). result was without error.
                              now 07:10PM, after first start and close of RR, the letter is missing.
