Getting it now! I'll let you know! (first to post! )
that problem that I was having with the playlist crashing I resolved by changing my directory as follows:
my mp3s/videos are in c:\media\mp3 however if I put that path I get the freezing playlist... If I put "c:\media\" then when the filelist comes I go into the MP3 directory it works!
do you know what can be going on? is it a bug or is it intended to be that way due to some setting I'm overlooking?
