    Music Videos Management/Playlists

    Not sure this is the right place, as it seems this a general limitation of Road Runner/Ride Runner.

    My question is: what is the best way to manage music videos (.avi files) within RoadRunner? No skin that I know of provides a solution for that, and yet, m3u files can contain .avi files, if the target program knows what to do with it (eg. windows media player).

    I have two folders, "Music Folder" with 30000+ songs, and a "Videos/Music Videos" folder, with aprox. 1000 files and growing fast. I can't blend those two folders together, since there's no tags for .avi files, and managing duplicates can be a mess. It's bad enough to select and manage original version/uplugged/live/rerecorded versions of the same song, if I add videos to that same folder, it'll be a mess.

    It's would be nice to add/remove videos to a playlist, selecting among video playlists only, and mixing (in a playlist) music and video files in the same .m3u would be great, but I'm not expecting that much.

    How would you do it? Suggestions?

    My solution was to set the video directories as subs of the music directory and create the playlists using the RR audio browser. This requires adding all the video formats to the Music,Page 1, Audio File Types in RR Config, but it works for me.
