Hey guys,

 

Adding and creating playlists in Emby is a long and nerve-wrecking process, but with this tool you can add m3u8 playlists made with other media players (e.g. VLC) to Emby.

 

I'm not a good coder and this tool is in an early state, if you could give me feedback, that would be great.

To get the tool working, read the Readme and if it still doesn't work, you can ask me here and I try to answer.

 

 

I hope someone will find a good usage in this.

Do you have Java installed? Normally just double click the .jar and the tool starts.

You have to add your User ID from the Emby Server.

You can find it by locating to your user settings in the Emby Web App, then the URL (the browser bar) should be something like this: 

 

http://localhost:809...ay.html?userId=[THIS IS THE USER ID]

 

The ID is 32 characters long. Copy it into the Playlist Maker Tool.

 

Edit: You just have to fill in this info once, unless you want to use another user to add the playlist to your Emby server.

Playlists Path also needs only to be added once. The other infos: m3u8-Playlist Path and Name, should be changed on every run.

How do you get these created playlists to function from within Emby?  I have gotten the import process working fine, but I can not find the imported files anywhere when searching inside of the Emby web user interface.

Hey Chenglee, just wanted to say thanks a lot for the program. I had quite a few playlists with 100-400+ songs that would of been very time consuming without this.

 

Arobinson, if the playlists got created correctly with the right user a scan should of populated the playlists on your homescreen, should see a playlist media tab next to your music/movies/tv etc...

Great little Java program! 

Worth noting that, since Emby's release, the Playlists Path should be C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Emby-Server\data\playlists (readme is outdated)

 

Also, you need to Scan Media Library after running this for the new playlist to appear.

 

Thanks again~

 

(hoping that we will see a way to import a playlist file directly via Web someday soon..! :))

Thanks for the great tool.

I placed all converted playlists into /var/lib/emby-server/data/playlists, none of them show up after library rescan. 

 

Any idea? I have emby server running on ubuntu server 16.04.

 

Thank you

Hi, you can use the web app to create a playlist. Just right click a song, album or any media, and select "Add to Playlist". Let us know if this helps. Thanks !

Hi Newbee here,

I have a Synology NAS 216p. I have created  music playlist using Synolgy's Audiostation (all 25000 songs except holiday and children) and it works great however the album covers look like crap so I went to emby. When playing from the Emby server, all covers great. I have been searching for an easy way to import my playlists. It shouldn't be difficult. I can import to other servers. Am I missing something?

 

Thanks

I would be happy to create a playlist quickly and easily. For example, new playlist>Select songs,albums, genres, and etc (via check boxes)>name playlist>save.  I have been bagging my head to figure this out. I tried manually (very tedious) by genre and I thought it saved but it did not...something as easy as creating a music playlist should not be difficult

@Superman1938, it looks like you are trying to create a playlist from songs by starting with a new playlist.

 

Did you know that you can use the context menu on any content and use that to create a new playlist? Right click an album -> Add to Playlist -> New playlist

 

You can even combine that with the multi-select tool:

 

Multi-select several albums -> Add to playlist -> new playlist

 

Please let us know if this helps. Thanks !

Just tested out the latest beta 3.3.1.11 and the playlist import worked.

 

At first I struggled to find how to import a playlist, and then I figured it may automatically pick them up if they are in the music folder (duh). A quick test playlist did show up in emby but was missing all songs, I thought this maybe due to how my m3u playlist was created (it had network paths to each song), so I did a quick edit and replaced the song locations with local paths and dumped the edited playlist into my emby music library folder. After a quick rescan it picked up the new playlist and now all songs are visible and playable.

 

Now I can at least create playlists based on star ratings and import them into emby, still not quite as good as having emby recognise ratings natively but I appreciate the work that's gone into this.

I was looking on: https://github.com/M...ki/Music naming
Is there any documentation on making a playlist?
I wasn't sure if I should be using a local address (C:\...) or a remote type one (\\server\etc....)

 

The next release of Emby Server will support importing playlists of the following formats:
  • m3u
  • pls
  • wpl
  • zpl
