Re: Trying to create a playlist without Windows Media Player?

Everything you described seems good to me (if you are using a Win PC) except the non-working result.

 

A few questions and suggestions:

1. Are you using mp3 audio files, or other types?

      Maybe good to start with a few easy mp3 file choices and work up to more challenges later

2. Maybe keep the sub-folder names and the mp3 filenames to 24 characters or less, and no symbol characters in the names.

3. Maybe you could post a few lines of your test m3u file here in a reply message?

4. Are you using a Mac or a Win PC ??

    The VLC method works best using a Win PC. (even better is the software "mp3tag")

       OSX produces some quirky challenges for creation of Playlists and everyday mp3 file management.

         I cannot get the VLC method to work using my Mac (OSX 10.10.x).

           And my favorite Batch Command Method for Playlists is a challenge using my Mac

             (but it can be done using the Wine File Manager)

Re: Trying to create a playlist without Windows Media Player?

Okay so this is my first post sorry if I seem slow or confused. So I have an Android phone. I looked up win file explorer and didn't find it in Google play store. So I got cx file explorer. I did find vlc so I downloaded that. I tried to follow the instructions but got lost at the point of creating sub folder on the SD card. So obviously I stopped there. Can you please help me? My ultimate goal it to play the SD card on a clip sport. Thank yo for any help. Sorry I got lost so quickly. But to be clear. I am doing everything from a phone.

Re: Trying to create a playlist without Windows Media Player?

SanDisk players use a micro SD card formatted as FAT32.  When you first insert this card into your player, it will automatically create several primary folders in the “root” directory, including The Music Folder.  

 

After you inset this micro SD card into your Android Phone, try to copy a folder of mp3 files from your phone into the Music folder   In your SD card.   Then eject the card from your phone and insert it into your Clip Sport.  

 

Then try to find / play your new mp3 files using two possible methods.

      CARD -> Music 

      FOLDER -> External Card

 

None of this will get you to a Playlist, but maybe will accomplish the main goal.
