hello everyone, i have a playlist (.m3u) in which a specific song (song0, say) is played more than once at specific locations in the play list. For example: 'song1, song0, song2, song3, song0, song4'. When i import it into MusicBee, only one instance of song0 shows, as 'song1, song0, song2, song3, song4' (i.e., the '2nd' song0 is missing).

does anyone know how to address this problem?

thanks

One more experiment on this.
1) i create a playlist in MB with songs (say)
 'song1, song0, song2, song0, song3, song0'.
2) i export this (Export Playlist) as .m3u.
3) I rename the save playlist and
4) I import it in MB. It shows
'song1, song0, song2, song3'.

Are you definitely using the latest v3.5 version from the first forum topic? I recall the initial v3.5 updates had this issue

i was just going to add information about this. This problem occurs with MB 3.5.8249 P. However, it works fine with  MB 3.0.5995. I have just tested it.

You are using an old version. (at least 6 months old)

Patch updates are released by Steven frequently. Sometimes a few in a week. See my signature. You can bookmark the link if you'd like to always stay current. This assumes you're not using the Store version, which can't be patch updated.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
