Playlist (m3u) empty - Scan-error - No matching file

Playlist (m3u) empty - Scan-error - No matching file
Hello

I just registered to the forum and would like to say hello to everyone and especially the developer of Minimserver.

Basically I figured it out to install and use Minimserver with my NAS Synology DS-218+.

But now I am facing a problem with m3u's.
The scan log says to every entry in my Playlists "no matching file".
I created them with relative references of course.
On my PC they are working.

The folder sructuce is 1:1 the same on the NAS & PC.
music\
- 00_Playlisten
- A
- B
.....

I searched for quite some while now, but could not solve it.

Does anyone have an idea?

Greetings
Georg

You need forward slashes in your relative references instead of backslashes. Forward slashes work on Windows, Mac and Linux (used by your DS-218+) but backslashes work only on Windows.

Aahhh, I see.
Thank you very much for that hint.

I remember, that I once read something like this in the web, but as it had been mentioned with other technical hardware/topics I did not realize it as a solution.

Badly I have to maintain 3 versions of them now:
- one for the NAS
- one for Windows PC
- one for car (which can only handle MP3)

If you use relative paths and forward slashes, the same .m3u file will work for both Windows and the NAS.

Hello

Me again.

I cleaned up the Scan-Log and could solve several issues by searching in this forum.

One type of entries (again related to playlists) I cannot solve as I do not have an idea about the reason.

The files which are mentioned are availabe and are also found, if the playlist is started from the Windows-PC.

I would be happy about any hint

Georg

I have created a playlist and file structure identical to what you posted and it works on both Windows and the NAS.

Perhaps your playlist has some problems with line endings. Windows uses CR+LF by default but Linux uses LF only. To use a single playlist on both systems, you need LF only.

Honestly spoken I do not know how to check this.

The interesting thing is, that only 7 entries appear in the log.
Out of about 30 playlists with >200 entries in total and those 7 are spread over 4 playlists.

So the syntax of my playlists cannot be completly wrong and I gues it has to do with these lines in particular, either in the m3u8 or the files (which have been indexed w/o errors).

RE: Playlist (m3u) empty - Scan-error - No matching file
Solved it!

I change some letters in the filenames to capital letters:

e.g.
11 Soul II Soul - Back to Life.flac
11 Soul II Soul - Back To Life.flac

02 Nu Shooz - Point Of No Return (Extra Extended mix).flac
02 Nu Shooz - Point Of No Return (Extra Extended Mix).flac

12 Chaka Khan - Love of a Lifetime [Extended Dance Version].mp3
12 Chaka Khan - Love Of A Lifetime [Extended Dance Version].mp3

And the Cameo track was missing on the NAS for any reason.

Is it a Linux thing, that upper lower case is important?

Yes, the Linux filesystem is case sensitive but the Windows filesystem isn't.
