Need help creating playlist on desktop and moving to phone


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am looking for some help building a music play list.  I want to be able to take my new Motorola Android phone on the beach, and play music on my new bluetooth speaker, without streaming (because I do not want to use my data allotment).  I want it kept local.  I need help building the playlist on my desktop computer.  What I would like to do is convert all of my YouTube songs I have in a desktop file folder to mp3 files (I think I want mp3 format - I would take suggestions for other format - also, if anyone can suggest a YouTube converter that is decent, I would welcome that recommendation.)  Once I have playlist built, I need help on converting that playlist on the desktop, over to the Motorola Android phone, where I intend to purchase Poweramp.  Thanks a million for any help.  - Mark

No need for a playlist, once you've got your files in MP3 format just copy them to a folder on your phone and they should all be available to playback using Folder mode. If you want to get clever you could add Title/Aritst/etc tags on the PC to make it neater, but you don't really need to if you're happy just using the filenames.

To download/convert from YouTube, I sometimes use an app on my phone called YouTube Downloader (see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2137743).

I hope this is going to be a private beach, as for some people there's nothing more annoying than someone deciding to play their own music in a public place. :)

Hi Andre, thanks for the reply.  Yes to the private beach...no one around.  I am going to download an app on my phone called Poweramp, to use for playlist playback.  Can you tell me how I could learn more about this "Folder" mode on the Android phone?  It sounds like a good place to put all these mp3s Im ging to make.  Thank you again.

 

Found that folder view, Andre.  Connected phone to computer for first time ever and copied over all the mp3's.  Poweramp recognized them just fine.  Thanks again.

Great, glad it worked for you.

Personally, I'm all for keeping things simple and I just copy my folders and files wherever I want them to be, rather than letting clever playlist/iTunes/etc software try to second-guess me and do its own thing (and often getting it wrong).
