    I just installed VLC media player v2.0.7 on my new cMBP and cannot get my newly created Playlist to work when I launch VLC... :mad:

    When I open VLC, I see a yellow triangle next to my Playlist and the following error window...

    Code:
    Errors and Warnings
    
    Your input can't be opened
    
    VLC is unable to open the MRL '/Users/user1/Documents/_RADIO_CAPTURE/+TEMPLATES_2013-07-25/[b]__MyVLCPlaylist_2013-07-25.m3u[/b]'
    (I can't technically see the bolded part, but I assume it is there?!)


    If I look at the Error Log I get this...

    Code:

    Under VLC Preferences > Show All > Playlist > Default Stream I have this...

    Code:
    /Users/user1/Documents/_RADIO_CAPTURE/+TEMPLATES_2013-07-25/__MyVLCPlaylist_2013-07-25.m3u
    

    Any idea how to fix this so when I launch VLC and double click on my Playlist, it actually works??? :confused:

    Sincerely,


    Debbie

    It seems as if VLC can't access the playlist for some reason. Can you delete it and re-add? Also, are the songs that your playlist references in the same directory as the playlist file?
