Bubbleupnp playlists - path problem?

Bubbleupnp playlists - path problem?
A bit of a complex problem here.. I want to use playlists via bubbleupnp but the playlist files are always shown as empty.

I edited the m3u-playlists on my PC with Playlist Creator, in "settings" I have selected relative paths and forward slashes, as this was recommended in a thread regarding playlists in this forum. If I select the playlists in bubble, they are not playable and shown as empty.
The only playlists that work in bubble are those that I edit directly in the app, but it's a lot of work and once the IP address changes, they won't work anymore, as the IP address seems to be attached to those playlists.. those playlist files are .dpl
Instead I want to edit my playlists once on my PC, copy it to a folder on my NAS and be able to play them in the future.

My folder structure looks like this:
\\TS-253B\Multimedia\01. POP-ROCK-FOLK-ETC
\\TS-253B\Multimedia\02. ELECTRONIC
...
\\TS-253B\Multimedia\08. SAMPLER\-=EIGENE SAMPLER=-\PLAYLISTS\80s.m3u

The playlists are located in 08.SAMPLER\...\PLAYLISTS and contain files from the other folders 01., 02. etc.

I have attached a playlist that is shown as empty by bubbleupnp, maybe this helps to find the mistake I'm making.

My setup in case it's relevant:
QNAP NAS TS-253
Bubbleupnp 3.2.1
Minimserver 0.8.5.2

If anyone can help, I'd very glad. Thanks in advance!


Attached File(s)
.m3u  test.m3u (Size: 434 bytes / Downloads: 8)

RE: Bubbleupnp playlists - path problem?
This playlist doesn't use relative paths. The following should work if I understand your file structure correctly:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:222,Zaba - 1 - Flip
../../../02. ELECTRONIC/Glass Animals/2014 - Glass Animals - Zaba/01 - Flip.mp3
#EXTINF:216,This Is All Yours - 4 - Every Other Freckle
../../../01. POP-ROCK-FOLK-ETC/Alt-J/2014 - Alt-J - This Is All Yours/04 - Every Other Freckle.mp3
#EXTINF:247,Blackfield - 02 - Blackfield
../../../01. POP-ROCK-FOLK-ETC/Blackfield/2004 - Blackfield/02. Blackfield.mp3

It worked! Thanks for helping me out Smile
So do I have to manually edit every playlist in order for them to work or is there a setting I have missed?

And thank you for creating and maintaining Minimserver! I've been using it for years as my music server.

If you used the Playlist Creator settings that you described, your playlists should not have been in this format. I suggest you check again to make sure you have "relative paths" enabled.
