    Exclamation ? How to load M3U playlists ?

    I'm really impressed with RR. I managed to make my own skin (screenshots below) that doesn't use the normal RR playlist paradigm, but instead uses a directory browsing method. I create my playlists on my PC using Media Monkey because it's the best thing out there (that I've found), and works for creating Smart Playlists (like iTunes) for the iPod, computer, and CarPuter.

    My problem is that although I can get RR to load and play M3U playlists, RR and Winamp become unsynchronized. The Next, Previous, Play, etc. buttons in RR work fine, but the song listed at the top is always wrong. RR seems to think that it's playing songs in the current folder and not the playlist.

    How do I get RR to properly negotiate an M3U playlist? What's playing in Winamp should mirror what is displayed in RR. Please help! I've come so far and now my project is sinking because of this one thing :-(

    Thanks for your help.

    Use "Reloadlist" command after you load the playlist to reload the RR playlist and sync to the playlist loaded in Winamp.

    See the Skin Commands.txt in the RR root folder for more details.

    Ahh...

    Can I do the command like this?
    "LOADLIST;F:\mp3\Dance.m3u;My Playlist; RELOADLIST"

    I tried this to no avail (same problem as before)

    Ok, try number 2... i figured out you have to use the pipe characters.
    "LOADLIST;F:\mp3\Dance.m3u;My Playlist||RELOADLIST"

    Unfortunately this still doesn't make a difference.

    I tried to check the code for you, but everytime I load a playlist into winamp stand alone, RR updates its own playlist upon startup. Even loading playlists thru RR updates the playlist window. Which version of RR/Winamp are you using?
    Pico-ITX / XP Home with EWF-HORM / RR v12/02/2009 / Winamp v5.13 / RRMedia v1.2.2
