create a playlist file from the linux command line

Here's a quick way to make a .m3u file from the linux command line for a bunch of folders of videos.

navigate to the top folder that contains all your sub-folders of videos and type the following command.

find -type f -iname "*.avi" > playlist.m3u

I'll usually open the .m3u after and add any global path names that happen at the beginning of the entries.
