playlist via homegroup

Hi there,

I'm not a native speaker (dutch) so forgive me my mistakes.

I have ripped my cd's to flac on my desktop. I want to play the playlists on my laptop in the livingroom using winamp.

On my laptop i have imported the playlists but the won't play.

What am i doing wrong or.... what should i do otherwise

Thanks for your answers
Hans

When you made the playlists from your desktop they will have been created with local addresses.
On the laptop they will need network addresses to work.

You can either edit the original playlists so they have network addresses rather that local addresses.
Or make up your playlists on the laptop so network addresses will be created automatically.

Network addresses will work on any machine including the local one.

Thanks for your answer!

Sounds like a lot of work to edit 300+ playlists. Is there a smart (fast) method for this.

Not really. The playlists are plain text, so you can use 'replace all' in something like NotePad, but not a great solution, as you say.

I think generating playlists with network addresses has been in the wishlist, would help in these situations, particularly as there is a trend towards people having more than one machine nowadays.

Not dumb, just not covered in my post

What you have there is a playlist with relative addresses, rather than the more usual absolute addresses.

Playlists with relative addresses will only work if they are in the same folder as the files they contain. In this case you will just see the filenames in the playlist.

To use these on a network machine you cannot just copy the playlists over, they don't have sufficient info.

What you can do is make a shortcut to the playlist(from your host machine) to your network machine and play that.
Otherwise you will need to navigate to the playlist on the host machine over the network and load the playlist from there.
