Exporting M3U playlists only shows track name - help...

Post by jbogema »

Quick question. When I select Export all Playlists, I get an M3U file that only shows the track name, but doesn't show album, artist, etc. I am trying to import my Media Monkey playlists into Amazon Music. It works through an app called Tune my Music LTD. However, without the additional info, I get all sorts of different versions of some of the songs in Amazon when importing.

Can anyone help me with what I am doing wrong?

Then you should see something like this when you open the Playlist in a text editor:

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U
#EXTENC: UTF-8
#PLAYLIST: - flac
#EXTINF:203,Alan Doyle - Anywhere You Wanna Go
\\lowlander03\Multimedia\Music\A\Alan Doyle\[2020] Rough Side Out\04. Alan Doyle - Anywhere You Wanna Go.FLAC
It contains Artist and Title.

OK, I see. When I opened in Excel, it showed just the track name and the other columns labeled but empty.

When I pull it through Notepad, I see this:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:288,John Lennon - #9 Dream (2010 - Remaster)
..\Music\John Lennon\Power To The People_ The Hits\08 #9 Dream (2010 - Remaster).mp3

I'm assuming its the fault of the syncing program not picking up these attributes.

Thanks for your help.
