Thanks for explaining that.
Can you update these commands to find each directory containing [GENRE1] and then in each found directory, output the full path including filename of each mp3 or flac file (directories can contain other files e.g. jpg or txt).
A typical filename might be:
\\NAS\sonos\artist - album [GENRE1]\01 - song.mp3
I tried the your last command from above:
DIR /S /AD /B "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Music*[GENRE1]." >"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Playlist.m3u"
/AD directories only
/B bare format - no headers
out on a test music directory on my laptop (not on the NAS) and got this output in the m3u file:
C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\Music\Al Cohn - Al & Zoot [FLAC] [GENRE1]
C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\Music\Al Cohn - Tour De Force [GENRE1]
These are the correct directories but not the mp3 or flac files. Having said that will these work? I didn't think of that will try this now. I had assumed that individual mp3 or flac files would be needed but perhaps m3u will work at the directory level. Will try this now...
Well the directory level m3u works in foobar2000. Will try a test m3u on my music system....
The directory level m3u works in foobar2000 but not on my sonos music system.
It does look as if it needs individual entries for each mp3 or flac file as per the typical filename above.
Is that possible?
I've just re-read your last post. I think you're saying that I can load up the directory level m3u into mp3tag and from there create a playlist. I'm just going to try that. Sorry to be so thick.
