Question for RuneAudio users regarding playlists

Postby aryankanse6 » 16 Jun 2020, 14:33

Hi everyone! I've been trying to create a "music box" for my family's home. Right now we use an iPod on a dock, but we want a solution that can play to multiple speakers and doesn't rely on Apple. So I have a Raspberry Pi 2 and 7 inch touchscreen running Volumio and accessing the network drive that all my music files live on. It works exactly how I want it to, except one thing: Playlists. We use MusicBee on a Windows PC to manage the music library, and Volumio doesn't have a way to interact with playlists from external sources (like .m3u playlists.)

So my question is, does RuneAudio have a way to import .m3u playlists? Or does anyone know of a similar distro that does?

I just made a playlist in Rune and found where it is stored, which is at /var/lib/mpd/playlists in m3u format. For my songs it has this structure

USB/SAMSUNG256/1970s/Abba - Knowing Me, Knowing You [mp3clan].mp3
USB/SAMSUNG256/1970s/Boney M. - Brown Girl In The Ring [mp3clan].mp3

Take notion that 1970s is a folder.

Does this ring a bell with you? However, making playlist is rather simple and works very fast in Rune. Click Queue and click Save playlist (left side bottom)

To get at /var/lib/mpd/playlists use WinSCP software Elsewhere in this forum you can find out which information to fill in and connect to Rune.
