I need a Third Party M3U Playlist Creator that works?
« on: January 16, 2014, 05:26:57 PM »
I have tried 2 different playlist creators (MP3Tag & Playlist Creator 3.6.2) to create .m3u playlist and neither works. The playlist gets created and RadioDJ will see the file but upon import the list of songs don't display.  ???

Thanks

Windows 7 64 bit   
RadioDJ v1.6.5.5

Hi, jollirock!

If you use Mp3Tag, go to it's Tools > Options then Playlist and uncheck the "Entries relative from work directory". That way all file paths in exported playlists will be absolute.

Hope it solves your issue.

I have the same problem in MP3Tag and StationPlaylistCreator. M3U playlist in my RadioDJ 1.6.5.65 doesn't work.

it may have nothing to do with this problem.
in the main screen in the play list I load an m3u list
all tracks are loaded
and can be played
I only use mp3 tracks.

What I also saw is that they were loaded into the database as disabled tracks.

Grtz.

ps. Oh yeah, I use tag & rename as m3u playlist creator and Playlist Creator 3.6.2.

And in the m3u is also the pad to the track like:
C:\Users\grandpa\Music\60s\(1968)\16 - The New Inspiration - You Made A Fool Of Me.mp3

If there is no pad like C:\Users\grandpa\Music\60s\(1968)\, that can bi the problem.

Thanks, I tried  this but it doesnt seem to work with a 64 bit machine, or atleast that's the message i received when trying to install.

I repacked the application with a new installer.
Not fully tested, but approved by Tobasco.

Great m8. Many, many thanks...

Try to create your clocks on Tobbasco's.. Do an save your playlists on Tobasco's. For me, it works 100% satisfactory. I've done categories where I separate my files for style in different folders and generate my playlist from the clock with this categories. It's an easy, pleasant an great piece of software...

Moved this to software and utilities.

Just had a go at using it. OK so i get the having to create an .m3u playlist to create a playlist part.

What I don't get is why it tries creating another mapped network drive which in turn changed E to F and RadioDJ lost the connection to all the songs.

Think I'm sticking with the playlist from rotation within RDJ from now on.

In the new version of the info site (Working on it)There will be no longer tutorials for third part software! takes up too much space.
maybe an exception if there is demand for it or a special tutorial is offered
