    Hello:
    I am trying to get m3u playlists to work in IMP-ng as it says it support them, but can 't get it to work. i downloaded a standalone playlist maker, added the mp3s from my flash(Poinint in the right place) and then copied it onto my flash. When in LMP-ng 1.02, I can see the playlist under the proper menu, but when I click on it, it shows gibberish, and freezes my DS. I have scoured the internet looking for playlist info, but there is very little about it for the LMP-ng. Is anybody successfully using playlists, and if so, what editor are you using, what settings , and where are you putting the playlist on your DS.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    I don't think they have fixed that issue yet.

    No. AFAIK the only videos you can play on the DS are .dpg's and specially encoded .avi files

    I don't have it on my flashcard any more meaning I'm working from memory here, but I can confirm playlists do work.

    I used to make a folder of tracks I wanted to turn into a playlist and then run the following batch script:

    @echo off
    dir /o:n /b *.mp3 > Playlist.m3u

    That would in turn produce a simple playlist in the following format -

    trackname1.mp3
    trackname2.mp3
    trackname3.mp3

    Then I would simply leave the playlist in the same folder as the relevant tracks and everything ran fine.

    I wish it would find the embedded artwork within the MP3.
