    I want to add backroundmusic to my slideshows.
    Found in the Wiki, that a folder.m3u should be automatically played.
    Therefore, I created a folder.m3u in the images folder.
    I checked, that this folder.m3u is playable with the Windows Media Player.
    But after the start of the slideshow no music is playing.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Open MP.
    Go to the pictures menu.
    Navigate to the image folder containing the folder.m3u.
    Start Slideshow.

    No music is played.
