Getting your Winamp
m3u playlist to work in XMMS1 is as simple as
calling a simple search and replace function a few times. All you have
to do is convert the
/mnt/directoryname/ and all
the backslashes to forward slashes. If the songs are in the directory
in which your playlist has been saved in, then the drive letter would
be omitted in the
m3u file and the line would start with a
backslash. That's it. With this in mind, use
even GnuEmacs. If you are obsessed with using Emacs for even a
problem as trivial as this, read ani-playlist-converter.el.html in the
Code Archives section. A few
calls perform the actual work.
