I hope someone can help with a problem I am having. I developed a music player and playlist creator to manage my mp3 files.
It works great on my machine that has IIS installed and a full version of CF MX7. I develop the playlist via CF and when I click the link to open the
m3u file it opens WinAmp and plays the list.
However, my home machine has XP Home which does not have IIS so I run the developer version of CF MX7.
I can't get the same code to open the m3u playlist on my home machine....it just opens the file as text. I did research the CF archives
and added a virtual directory pointing to the mp3 files but no luck. When I incorporate a link from my CF page to open the m3u file it just opens and shows the text rather than opening WinAMP or Win Media Player.
Any help would be appreciated.
Forgot to mention that if I go directly to the m3u file and double click, it will open and play on both machines.
So, I don't think it is a problem with WinAmp or Win Media Player.
Without seeing any code (your explanation does not give enough details
about the way it's not working) I would guess that IIS has the proper
mime types for m3u but the CF internal web server doesn't have the
mime types (most likely the .m3u file is served as plain/text):
