Custom playlist not finding playlist?? - davidils20l - 2012-04-20 04:06

Hi. I have made a directory of live music videos. So no scrapers involved. I went through the directory queuing each video then saving the whole thing as a playlist called live.m3u

I would like to make a custome playlist, however when I go to "set playlist" on the custom playlist 1 option, the file is not shown.

It has been confirmed that through file manager that the file live.m3u exists in /home/profile/.xbmc/use data/playlists, However the custom playlist set option does not see it....

Any help please.....

Thanks

David

Hi David ,
xbmc need nfo file to load video into the librairy. You can create nfo file with a scraper or a software.
Before loading your playlist, you must generate nfo file and add your source with a scraper ( don't scan ) .
I use "XBMC Music Video NFO" (a french software) to create nfo file.


bye

Thanks for your advice...

All the best
