Problems getting relative paths in .m3u playlists to work


Great project – thanks!

I’m running mopidy 1.1.2 via an install from
with the MusicBox extension. I’m running as a normal user, not
a service, on the latest raspbian release on a Pi 2.

My issue is that relative paths in my .m3u playlists don’t seem to work,
and adding base_dir to the [m3u] config section results in
a startup error (unknown config key m3u/base_dir).

My config looks like this:

playlists_dir = /home/pi/Playlists
#base_dir = /home/pi/Music

media_dir = /home/pi/Music
data_dir = /home/pi/.local/share/mopidy
scan_follow_symlinks = true

When I open the playlist in MusicBox there are no contents – but
if I convert my .m3u to contain absolute paths then the tracks do
show up.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks, best

The m3u/base_dir config is new in Mopidy 2.0.0, released tonight. Upgrade and try again :slight_smile:

Thanks Jodal, that worked!

Good timing :slightly_smiling:

Have a good one,
