    For my part, I have far more important changes to spend my time on. I don’t think anyone spends any time focusing on the logo.

    One does not “create a playlist from my SMB share”. Playlist are created prior to the use of WIIMC and must use relative entries.

    Happy to report that Jukebox+ now works correctly. The fixed boot.dol will be posted as V14E.

    Great.

    Could you test the playlist option again. You did not do it correctly.
    The autostartvideo.txt file must contain the playlist name ie: smb3:test.m3u
    It cannot contain a directory smb:autostart which contains the playlist test.m3u as you did it.

    You have totally lost me. I don’t know what you mean by “run from USB” or “USB in apps”. I told you on Saturday that USB would not work. Anyway i have emailed you a new dol that should support USB.

    The code supports both directories and playlists so it should work.

    Agree. That’s why I modded mine to do it.

    Ah progress!

    So to confirm your autostartvideo.txt says smb1:/autostart.
    If that folder contains a list of files they play.
    If that folder contains a file named test.m3u you get:
    Loading Mplayer with File = smb1:/autostart/test.m3u
    Back from Mplayer with name V N ({1 Acer Downloads:/autostart}
    Player could not find the requested file.Error 9999

    I think the problem is “that playlist must contain relative references within the smb1:/ path on the pc, to the files that are to be played. See the WIIMC+ Guide to playlists for more details.”

    And it says “using relative entries for a song “smb2:/music/artist/song.mp3”, valid playlists are either “smb2:/playlist.m3u” containing an entry “music/artist/song.mp3” or “smb2:/music/playlist.m3u” containing an entry “artist/song.mp3”. Both will resolve to the correct “smb2:/music/artist/song.mp3”.

    Try changing your test.m3u entries to conform to these relative entries..

    your apps/playme has the correct files and the autostartvideo.txt should contain the line:
    smb1:/autostart

    Then your smb1: drive needs to have a folder named autostart either containing list of files to be played or a playlist file named autostart.m3u containing a list of files to be played.

    Because you have the autostart setting = on, wiimc+ will get the drive/directory you loaded it from and read the autostartvideo.txt. It will then try and access the directory or playlist named in autostartvideo.txt and if it can it will proceed to autostart the files named therein, otherwise it will start wiimc normally. This is just a repeat of what is in the guide.

    “Will this have any effect?”

    No. 1.3.1 just incorporates my YouTube fix which already is in V14. You will have an apps/wiimc and an apps/wiimc-plus and they will run as different applications. You will also have other apps/xxx where each xxx is an autostart copy of wiimc-plus that uses the settings.xml file in apps/wiimc-plus.

    “Tried that – no change” or “sd card doesn’t work in autostartvideo.txt either” or “smb links smb2, smb3 and smb4 – none of these worked either”

    I can’t do any thing with that feedback. I need to know the trace results to determine where it is failing. When I developed autostart, it worked fine with autostartVideo.txt pointing at a directory and playlist on smb1:/. Since my sd card slot is broken, I boot from my USB, so I could not test directories on sd and I did not test directories on usb, and now see that WIIMC has to mount a usb before it is accessed.

    Since I know it worked before, I’d like to get the smb setup to work for you first, and then move on to usb, and sd if you are game.

    To replicate what worked for me before:
    -create an autostartVideo.txt file in your apps/xxx autostart directory containing the line smb1:/autostart
    -create a directory named autostart on your smb1 drive containing a file autostart.m3u which contains playlist entries to the files you want to play. To keep things simple, just use small clips that are on your smb1 drive.
    This setup then allows you to simply change the playlist contents on your pc when you wish to alter what the xxx icon plays on the wii.

    If you can do this and report the trace output, I can add more trace statements and send you a new dol to determine the failure point so we can fix it.

    Doesn’t make sense to me. Try using a directory name without a space. eg: smb1:/autostart and post the trace output.

    “sd1:/apps where i put it. It worked to the point that it tried to play the file, but as expected, wiimc crashed as the read speed of the SD card is too slow to play files from”

    I think the other things in sd1:/apps may have caused the failure. The directory you point at should only have the files you want autoplayed so put your file in and point at sd1:/myautoplay. Never heard of the sd card being too slow to play from.

    The breaks are there because that was the only way to get debug messages to display without coredumps.

    The output shows that it was able to read your autostartvideo.txt file, but unable to access the usb1 device.

    Seems that usb’s require mounting before using and I will try to add that support for autostart but in the meantime you will need to have your directory or playlist on the sd card or an smb drive.

    I will send you a dol to test hopefully in a day or so.

    I’ve checked the logic and it should work as you now have it setup, but as I do not have access to my WII you will have to assist in debugging this.

    First try using “usb2:/To Watch/Torchwood” It should not matter but worth a try. If it doesn’t work revert to usb1.

    Second, Now that you have settled on using directory names for both music and videos you can turn on Trace in the General settings.
    That will generate a series of messages showing each step in the logic, and you can click the B button to go to the next step.

    Watch for the following for videos. Let me know what follows the = for each of them.

    “Unable to access AS Directory path = “
    “autostartDirectory = “
    “autostartType = “

    If can’t find your boot dir there will be no messages and WIIMC+ will run normally
    If it can’t open device usb, it will show “unable to access AS Directory path = usb1:/To Watch/Torchwood” and “autostartDirectory = null”
    or if can open device usb but can’t open directory will just say “autostartDirectory = null”

    This will show where the problem is.
