How to Open Playlists Directly?

Post by ReggieB » Sat Oct 21, 2017 11:43 am

Hi all, I have a question about playlists. Is there any way to open MediaMonkey playlists as if opening a M3U playlist? For example, if a create an M3U playlist then double click it, it will automatically start playing all the songs in the playlist in MediaMonkey. But since MediaMonkey's playlists aren't really individual files, I don't know of any way to automatically open MediaMonkey and play them.

Does anyone know of a convenient way to automatically open and play a playlist in MediaMonkey? Maybe I can make a shortcut that MediaMonkey recognizes as a playlist? Or another acceptable option would be for MediaMonkey to store all playlists as M3U files in a folder somewhere. Will these or any other options help me open and play playlists directly? Thanks in advance.

MediaMonkey Playlists are stored in the database itself. Thus you can't open them as individual files. You can export them to M3U though (Tools > Scripts > Export All Playlists).
