Is there a way to import\convert M3U playlists from Windows onto MM for Android?

Is there a way to import\convert M3U playlists from Windows onto MM for Android? I'm guessing it would require editing the playlists in a text editor before adding them to Android but I wonder if anyone has figured this out before. Thanks!

Sync does this: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... oid_device

Otherwise you'll have to edit the Paths as they'd differ. Unless they have relative Paths AND Android supports relative Paths AND the Playlists are stored in the same relative Path on the PC and Android AND the files have the same folder/filename starting at that relative point.

Thanks! I guess I need to look at sync again. I couldn't get it to work last time I tried. Beyond my skill set, I think.

Sync will copy both files and Playlists from your Library to the device.

The steps in that article don't work. It's really a terrible article.

I will try to find some time to critique the article. I ran into some show-stopping roadblocks that could do with some clarification.
