Music in folder not played after playlist error (1 Viewer)

Hi,

Since Mediaportal 1.7(also 1.7.1) I'm not able to just press the 'play' button when I selected a folder with music in it.

Most of the folders have a .m3u file and multiple .mp3 files in it. So I just selected the folder and clicked play. This always gave an error about the .m3u file but added the .mp3 files anyway and started playing it. Now with 1.7 and 1.7.1 the playlist error still occours but the .mp3 files are not played after this anymore. So the music just doesn't start.

Is this a new feature or a bug or something? Does anyone knows a way to get the music play like it did before?

An example of the playlist error in mediaportal-error.log is:

Code:
[2014-05-04 20:26:23,305] [Error  ] [MPMain   ] [ERROR] - BASS: Unable to create Stream for \\CHRISTIAN-NAS\Music\Slam!40\2011\SLAM!40_Wk05_2011-Hellboy\00-SLAM!40_Wk05_2011-Hellboy.m3u.  Reason: BASS_ERROR_FILEFORM.
[2014-05-04 20:26:23,310] [Error  ] [MPMain   ] [ERROR] - PlaylistPlayer: *** unable to play - \\CHRISTIAN-NAS\Music\Slam!40\2011\SLAM!40_Wk05_2011-Hellboy\00-SLAM!40_Wk05_2011-Hellboy.m3u - skipping track!
[2014-05-04 20:26:37,041] [Error  ] [MPMain   ] [ERROR] - BASS: Unable to create Stream for \\CHRISTIAN-NAS\Music\Slam!40\2014\VA-New In The SLAM!40 Week 16-2014\00-va-new_in_the_slam!40_week_16-2014.m3u.  Reason: BASS_ERROR_FILEFORM.
[2014-05-04 20:26:37,043] [Error  ] [MPMain   ] [ERROR] - PlaylistPlayer: *** unable to play - \\CHRISTIAN-NAS\Music\Slam!40\2014\VA-New In The SLAM!40 Week 16-2014\00-va-new_in_the_slam!40_week_16-2014.m3u - skipping track!
I'm running Mediaportal 1.7.1 on Windows 8.1.

When I select a folder without a .m3u playlist file it plays just fine like it always did. Removing all playlist files is not an option for me.

I hope someone can help me with this, since I don't care about the error and just want to play all mp3s in a folder like I was able to do in older versions of Mediaportal.

Thanks in advance

    Hi, i notice quite the same error, i will be able to post a link to a build for you to test.
    It should add files from m3u into the playlist and avoid the error. It seems that something need to be fixed in some special circonstance but should work better.
    So if you are able to test it would be nice :)

    Hi, thank you for the replies. Is it possible to upgrade my 1.7.1 installation to this build? Is it still possible to update to newer official builds when they are released after I install this custom build? If that's the case i will be happy to test.

    Nope it will not because need some tweak to do (if you can read last comment on Jira, there is still some issue left, maybe you can reproduce it to confirm, i will try on my side too).

    On Jira, if you see the status ready for testing, that mean internal team and user like you can test it and report on forum/Jira (for the one with access) when the status is close, that mean it's in next MP version. :)

    But like here need some issue left, that need to be fixed :p
