 Hi,

Is there a way to launch a playlist whith intent?

I can retrieve the path of the m3u playlist with:
Cursor cursor = context.getContentResolver().query
(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, null, null, null,
null);
cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex
(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.DATA));

But, I can't launch this m3u file neither with Intent nor with
MediaPlayer.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance

 Well, OK, that's not entirely true. While you can't play an arbitrary
m3u file, you can play playlists that are in the database (which may
have come from m3u files originally, in which case there path is in
the _data column).
To see how, you can look at what happens when you put a shortcut to a
playlist on the home screen and then launch it.

 Hi Marco,

Thank you very much for the response. You give me the key to find the
solution.

I had to study the code of PlaylistBrowserActivity to find the
solution.

I give it here if someone else search the solution:
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
intent.setComponent(new ComponentName
("com.android.music","com.android.music.PlaylistBrowserActivity"));
intent.setType(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.CONTENT_TYPE);
intent.setFlags(0x10000000);
intent.putExtra("oneshot", false);
intent.putExtra("playlist", playlistid);
startActivity(intent);

and to retrieve the playlistid:
Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query
(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, null, null, null,
null);
if (cursor != null) {
 if (cursor.moveToFirst()) {
  do {
     playlistid = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex
(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists._ID));
     playList.add(playlist);
     } while (cursor.moveToNext());
     cursor.close();
 }
}
