… are the PITA that I expected them to be but they can be done. I have both Rhythmbox and Audacity installed. I could not get Rhythmbox to create or export playlists that the Fuze would recognise.
The native Audacity playlist is also not recognised by the Fuze either. To create playlists in Linux that the Fuze will recognise:
- Load the songs you want in the Audacity playlist
- Save the playlist adding .m3u to the end of the playlist name
- It does not matter if you tick the “Relative path” when saving the playlist, it doesn’t.
- Edit the m3u file with a text editor
- Replace from the root folder up to your music folder with nothing
- Replace all the forward slashes (/) with backslashes ()
- Add a blank line to the end or the Fuze won’t recognise the last song.
The file should end up looking like this:
#EXTINF:212,Show Me Love
#EXTINF:255,Make The World Go Round
If anyone knows an better easier way then PLEASE let me know.
