I have users that have playlists with the same name but in different folders.
Hi, by different folders you mean different hierarchy in MM?
i.e. something like
Playlists -> MyPlaylist1
Playlists -> MyPlaylist2 -> MyPlaylist1
?

From what I see such a same named playlists are pointed to the same target path on the device so there currently is not a mechanism to differentiate them.

Is there a concept of any ID for a playlist?

1672 Playlist identification in NotifyPlaylist

Is there any way to identify the playlist in MM which is being sync'd to the device but not by using the name?

The signature looks like ...

Code: Select all

procedure DEVICE_NotifyPlaylist( DeviceHandle : integer; M3UFileName, M3UTitle : PWideChar;
              TrackCount : integer; Tracks : PWideCharArr; M3UPath: PWideChar); stdcall;
Clearly the M3UFileName can identify the playlist name. I have users that have playlists with the same name but in different folders. At present I can differentiate if they have different track lengths.

Any other ideas?
