If you leave the Directory field blank then it should go into the album folder with the tracks, but if you populate it then it should appear in the specified directory. Because of this you shouldn't need to use <folder> in the mask.

Well for some reason the file isnt ending up in the folder. I just am trying this out without making any changes to your the batch file. (I was reading through this complete help file and I guess there are some changes you can make) Anyway I am not sure where the file is going. I am running winxp v3

I'm using latest MM4 with latest BM3U2.5
Script is awesome and it works on all non UTF albums.

I am running into following issues:

1. MediaMonkey installed on Windows 7
2. Network NAS is on a Linux system with a true UTF8 with case-sensitive folders/files (echo $LANG en_US.utf8)
3. Any path that contains non-ascii characters in path name will generate an error. Here is an error for one of the albums with non-ascii chars:
BatchM3UCreator: The following 1 files could not be created:
2010 - Aš Kaip Žasis\Sel-Aš Kaip Žasis-2010.m3u

I checked 'Debug' however where is it located at?

Thanks, DJ

VBScript cannot handle UTF-8, so there's no way that I can fix this, sorry.

Question about the filemask field
Can this be expanded to just include the folder name the mp3s are in?

then if you have folders that have CD1 or CD2 in then the m3u states this, or if it's the album name then it's this.
even better if it can pull the top two or three tiered folder names and include them on the m3u name

e.g
Robbie Williams- Sing when you are winning -CD1.m3u

How about if I add <PathOne>, <PathTwo> and <PathThree>? So for this example...

C:\Music\The Beatles\Let It Be\CD2\06 - Let It Be.mp3

<PathOne> = CD2
<PathTwo> = Let It Be
<PathThree> = The Beatles

Also is it possible to take options from the ID3 Tag to create the playlist file name...
so %Artist% - %Album% %Part Of Set%.m3u
then it will give veryone totaly flexibility of the automatic naming convention.

Many Thanks
