Hello,

Today I try to export my Poweramp playlists. When I give the export button, it tells me that the export was successful, but when I see the .m3u8 file, the new songs added do not appear. I even rebooted my phone, but all playlists were deleted (even in folder playlists). I went back to making the playlists and tried again to export them, but it did not work. What I can do? Thank you.

Hello,

I tried again to do the export and I noticed something, when I opened the .M3U8 file with a blog, I realized that the writing is incomplete.

To make me understand, Suppose that today in a playlist called "Rock" I add 3 new songs: "Dog", "Cat", "Elephant". So when exporting and reviewing the contents of the M3U8 file it says something like that.

 

/storage/3838-6354/Download/Example.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Example.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Dog.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Cat.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Elep 

or

/storage/3838-6354/Download/Example.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Example.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Dog.mp3
/storage/3838-6354/Download/Cat.mp3
/st

 

Then it is as if the song "Elephant" was not written completely. Obviously in my case they are many songs and instead of 3 maybe they are 80 new and only the first three come out and then the text is cut. I hope you have explained me well. Thank you very much for your help.

So if you create a brand new internal playlist in PA with say six tracks, and then immediately export it, it works correctly and all six entries are complete when you look at the M3U8 file in a text editor.

However if you then add three new tracks to the same internal playlist (not to the M3U8 file) and then export it again, the newly exported file now has corruption on the three new tracks only?

Is there enough space on the memory where the playlists are written?

Did you try my app to create playlist (free or paid) to test the creation of playlists?

If the place where the M3U8 files are saved has enough space, in fact it also happens to me that if I try to change the place it has by default, the files are never created.

I have not tried your application, what would it be?

As your issue was creating playlists in Poweramp, my app also creates playlists in Poweramp. If you create the same playlist in my app it will show if there is a difference or not. Creating playlists with my app is easy, go to library, tracks or albums or artists etc. Select tracks by ticking the box. Once selected, tap the plus sign at the top.

I do not find the sense to return to make my playlists, it would take a long time since I have more than 1000 songs, so I want to save a backup from Poweramp, do not re-do the lists every time.
It is also assumed that Poweramp should be able to perform this action.

Yes Poweramp performs this function fine. Given that you have not responded I assume you still do not quite understand where I am going.

Step 1 -In my app Settings, Random Generation Settings, Set Maximum Number of tracks, set to 2000(or any number you like)

Step 2 On the main screen, Poweramp tab, hit the blue circle with the green plus, accept the proposed name or provide your own, click OK

Step 3 two things have happened, firstly a new playlist was created in Poweramp with x number of tracks (whatever you entered in step 1) and secondly your playlist has also been backed up as playlistname.m3u in a folder called playlist_manager .

Step 4 launch Poweramp, export the newly created playlist and check content

Step 5 do the same with the .m3u playlist in playlist_manager (on internal memory)

Step 6 post  the outcome in this thread

@gabrielgugo not sure what your issue is anymore. You start out with m3u playlists not completing but then you continue talking about different things.

I do not understand what you mean, I made this thread to find a solution to my problem with the export of Poweramp playlists. But the only thing they have told me to do is to use an external application, what sense does that have?

Given that @flyingdutchman is the author of a powerful third-party app specifically designed for advanced management of playlists (the clue is in its title) I think his suggestion that you give it a try was eminently sensible.

Your own post however, re-quoting two other posts in full and just adding a question-mark, didn't seem to move things forward a great deal. Could you maybe answer my question, which was aiming to try to get a better understanding of your problem. Thanks.

And in response to your post about modifying a .M3U8 file manually, then yes Poweramp is meant to detect any changes made within its scannable directories - i.e. when audio, playlist, CUE, etc files are either added, modified or deleted, it is meant to update its library database accordingly.

The answer to the question is a yes.

Also try the third party application that you mentioned before, but I do not see it useful in my case. I do not want to have to recreate my playlists because they are very long and with Poweramp I could always manage them well and make their respective backup copies. And I do not know why suddenly the Poweramp Playlists Exporting system did not work anymore.
