Sure :)

 

I have two kinds of playlist currently:

  • Playlist generated into "Emby Web Gui". Example:

5acbc5e4d5ded_vivaldi_20180409_215713.pn

  • Playlist imported using m3u files from my file system library. Example:

5acbc60319415_publicpreview1.png

 

 

All of them are imported correctly in my Emby server:

 

5acbc74874250_publicpreview2.png

 

But, when I try to add m3u playlist to some collection do nothing.

 

If you need more details, please tell me :)

 

 

Thx again.

I'm having the same issue. Emby sees the m3u, adds it to the playlist tab, but the tab is empty.

Running Version 3.3.1.17 beta

 

Sample of the m3u file:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:153,Meghan Trainor - No Excuses
\\PRIMUS-ATOMUS\Media Shares\Music Archive\_Monthly Mixes\030 April 2018 Mix\01 - Meghan Trainor - No Excuses.mp3
#EXTINF:246,John Newman - Fire in Me
\\PRIMUS-ATOMUS\Media Shares\Music Archive\_Monthly Mixes\030 April 2018 Mix\02 - John Newman - Fire in Me.mp3
#EXTINF:192,Elton John Pink Logic - Bennie And The Jets
\\PRIMUS-ATOMUS\Media Shares\Music Archive\_Monthly Mixes\030 April 2018 Mix\03 - Elton John Pink Logic - Bennie And The Jets.mp3
 
Copying the the link in the file plays the song so the paths are good.
 
EDIT: Sorry, this is not a collection issue like OP, this is just importing a M3u file by adding it to the folder where the album lives.

This file needs to exist in your emby library, and exist using the exact same path. So if you set it up as 

d:\Media Shares\Music Archive

Then that will not work as it won't be able to find the media in your library.

 

So yes, the playlists feature only supports content in your emby library, not arbitrary content.

@ Luke Emby lives on a VM, all paths are absolute. This is the path to my music archive "\\primus-atomus\Media Shares\Music Archive"

Can you show screenshots of your emby library setup? Thanks.

@Luke I did get this working. I created a relative m3u and placed it within the folder. This will work for my purposes as these are just monthly mixes that I share with family. This is a great feature for me, Plex and Emby have always been a PIA to share a playlist. Thank you for this feature!!!

 

This is how the m3u looks now:

 

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:153,Meghan Trainor - No Excuses
01 - Meghan Trainor - No Excuses.mp3
#EXTINF:246,John Newman - Fire in Me
02 - John Newman - Fire in Me.mp3
#EXTINF:192,Elton John Pink Logic - Bennie And The Jets
03 - Elton John Pink Logic - Bennie And The Jets.mp3
