How can to use playlists and which format?

2 posts in this topic

I don´t understand the way Poweramp handles playlists.I understood that there are folder playlists and library playlists.What I wanted to do is to keep the songs from 3 or 4 albums and play them not one after the other but in a shuffle-mode.

I´ve tried two apps, "My Playlistmaker" and "Just Playlists".I can make a m3u-playlist with "Just Playlists" and play it in shuffle mode with the player which is inside that app.

If I try to open this playlist with Poweramp it says there are no files or no data in that list or Poweramp can´t open it.


What playlist-format is compatible to Poweramp? m3u? or m3u8? How can I create a playlist wich can be played with Poweramp?Can Poweramp itself create one?

And can I use this list in shuffle mode than?

And another question;How can I delete library playlists? If I press the list another song is added....the folder playlists can be deleted on the sd-card with a file manager but what about the "virtual" libary playlists?


waiting for help....

m3u is fine for Poweramp. Are the paths to the music files the same ones that poweramp sees though? (e.g. relative paths from some other location, or absolute ones). m3u is a text format so you can load and edit it in any standard text editor.
