Summary0005933: Playlist Sync: Linux Folder separator

I'm not sure what exactly are you suggesting - to use (optionally) '/' separator when writing playlists by MM? Is it required by some devices?

Yes, exactly. Some devices uses "/" as folder separator as they use linux filenaming.

I would suggest as addition to the checkboxes form 0006255:
[ ] Force relative paths {tt: This causes the playlist to use a relative path to the files)
[ ] Use 8.3 DOS-style filenames {tt: This is needed for some older devices}
[ ] Use extended .m3u {tt: This format is used by some newer devices.}

add also

[ ] Use Linux folder separator ('/' instead of '\') {tt: This format is used by some devices.}
