Default asx & relative paths


I've recently tried using BSPlayer (version 0.86, build 501) and was dissappointed to find that it wasn't playing my asx playlists. It loads the playlist fine, but it then fails to actually play the entries on the list. My suspicion is that it is because my playlist lists the files using a relative path. For example:

<REF HREF = "Test.mpg" />
If this playlist was saved as c:\Temp\MyTestPlaylist.asx, then bsplayer should in theory look for a file named c:\Temp\Test.mpg to play. I believe (but don't know for sure) that that's why it's failing to play my playlists.

Hopefully this can be fixed in a future version.

I don't have any problem with relative paths.

on the other hand, I found that:
- if I double-click on the asx file to have it loaded by bsplayer, it just launches bsplayer but does not load the playlist (I checked the command line too)
- if I open bsplayer, then manually load the asx playlist, everything is fine

bsplayer doesn't seem to recognize the <title> tag though and I don't think it actually supports any of the extended asx features.
I use bsl playlists; they're simpler to create and work fine in every respect.
