Summary0010779: Add support for generation other playlist formats
DescriptionCurrently we can sync various playlist types virtually via MTP (PLS, PLA, ASX, ...) if the device supports it.

But for USB MS devices and simple USB memory sticks (like SD card) we can generate only M3U.

This should be enhanced to support also other formats (like PLS, ASX, XSPF)
Additional Information
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build1637

Added PLS and XSPF file generation in build 1635.

I am not sure whether we need to add others (ASX, WAX, WPL, ...) because these are formats specific to particular app or file format and are not widely used. So I see this as low priority. We can re-open this and add them once we find that they could be useful.

I would suggest 2 Small tweaks:

1. Only supported playlists should be shown in dropdown eg. M3U, PLS, XSPF even others are selected as supported

2. If selected formats MMW do not export I think maybe all should be disabled unless device is using MMA?

To make things more clear
1. MMW support M3U, PLS and XSPF even if Device support ASX it should not be listed, it will be not created as MMW do not export them. So dropdown should show which are of those three is selected in supported formats and ignore others.

2. if none of M3U, PLS and XSPF is selected as supported all of playlist options should be dissabled as MMW will not handle them unless sync MMW -> MMA/MM8 is made

1. Sure--it doesn't really make sense to offer the ability to export to a playlist format that's unsupported by MMW, even if it is supported by the device. This should be fixed for MM 4.1.

2. I see what you mean--though I don't think it's really worth fixing. If no playlist format is supported, MMW currently lists m3u as the default. So it'll work even if the user accidentally disables all supported formats. We could change this, but I'm not sure if it's worth any effort.

Re: 1)
Currently we support ASX sync virtually via MTP (if device supports it). So either your device supports ASX over MTP or you configured a device profile offline (when the device was not connected)? These are the cases when ASX could get into the combo box.

I should problably adjust it and the playlists should be created both virtually and physically via MTP for consistency with MS USB.

Added generation of ASX/WAX in build 1637.

+ playlist files are copied also physically via MTP in 1637.
