      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

Copy Playlist from computer

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

is there any playlist format that I can copy to my phone so that I can modify and use the playlist in Poweramp and copy it back to my computer WITHOUT using the import/export function in Poweramp?

Thank you!

Yeah, just use M3U format. At its simplest, each playlist is basically just a single text file which contains a list of filenames to play (with optional folder paths, if you want to use folders). It'd be best to use relative paths (i.e. paths which are based from the same location that you've stored the .m3u file) so the playlist is more portable between your phone and your PC. If you use absolute paths (e.g. "C:\Users\yourname\Music\filename.mp3" then you're more locked to a single device's folder structure.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M3U for more info on the optional extra features you can use, but it really is a very simple and widely-supported format.

I don't think you can modify .m3u playlist files from within Poweramp's own playback screens, but any text editor will allow you to change it easily.

Andre
