[SOLVED] How do I export all playlists in MM5?

In MM4 under Tools, Scripts, there is a built-in script to export all playlists.

How do I do this in MM5?

I realize that MM5 is not following MM4 scripting so maybe this was overlooked...

If there isn't a way, perhaps an easy way to implement this would be as follows:

On the main "Playlists" node in the media tree, on right click show the option "Send To-->M3U Playlist" and it would go and create an M3U playlist file using the playlist name as the .M3U filename for every playlist in the Playlists tree.

Currently, ""Send To-->M3U Playlist" will appear only on playlist sub-nodes of the tree. It also prompts you for the name of .M3U file you want to create. It should default this to the name of the playlist you right clicked on...

The reports were added a few beta releases back. Make sure you have the latest Beta. Then look under File > Create Reports > Export all Playlists

Found it. Works great. This will help me lots, thanks!

I still think it is a good suggestion to eventually add a right click, Send to->.M3U playlist file to increase the discover-ability of this feature and to match how you would export a single playlist.

thx
