What should I do to import a backup music playlist?

Recommended Posts


Please help me.I backed up my music list at first, then I uninstalled and reinstalled Poweramp. I was unable to import the backed up music list after reloading.

In case anyone else has the same issue, when Poweramp exports (backs up) any internally created playlists, they are saved as .M3U8  files to a folder on your device - usually /Playlists/ on the internal storage.

To get these newly created files back into a new installation of Poweramp, first copy those .M3U8 files to a location that you want to use for keeping your playlists on the new device - which could be the same folder name if you wish. Then make sure that Poweramp is configured to allow auto-scanning of that location, which is done by ticking the appropriate folder names in Settings > Library > Music Folders.  Once that is done, any playlist files found by Poweramp will automatically be brought into the Playlist category in PA's library.
