So does MP2 not play m3u music playlists? The set up I had in MP1 had a playlist folder you could easily access. It is no longer an option in MP2. Do I need to revert to MP1 (again!)

    MP2 uses server side managed playlists: once created, they are visible on all clients and can be used for instant playback. The playlist works for all media items (audio, video, image).

    1) So first you should create media shares for letting the MediaLibrary import your files.

    2) Then there is a playlist import tool included inside MP2-Client:

    Then you get this screen to import a playlist
    upload_2015-9-6_10-16-7.png


    Can you give it a try in the order I wrote above?

    This is only for importing a playlist one at a time. I am not prepared to do this for 200 playlists. I just want to be able to set up the music playlist section to tp be bale to play the playlists I already have and can play under MP1. Back to MP1 again. Why remove a perfectly good function? Anyway the import one-by-one function doesn't work either, not that I ever intend to use it. Just letting you know.

    M3U files are accepted in the Utilities / Import Playlists.
    1 catch - There cannot be Any Blank Lines in the file.
    I have tested. Only after editing and removing all blank lines does the importer properly import the playlist.

    Pretty useless anyway having to import each one individually. Have reverted to MP1
