Done! Very very simple to do.


Or use Meridian Player (best media player I've come across) to create a "playQ" playlist. this is an independent file as opposed to a database. there are a few steps involved but you can copy the "play Q" file (which has a .mpq extension) to your computer. this file can then be converted to a .m3u file fairly simply. Use Notepad++ to open the .mpq file.

01. Delete all characters before the first instance of "localAudio id"
02. Replace all (" /><) with (\r\n) without the parenthesis. \r\n moves the text to the next line, make sure to select extended mode
03. replace all (LocalAudio id="/mnt/sdcard/Music/) with (D:\Music\) or wherever the music is
04. replace (&amp with (&) - there seems to be an error with the & symbol
05. delete "\Items><\PlayQ>" at the end

Here is a link to the original post from where I got the information. I did have a different experience then what is shown here, but very useful:

Full disclosure: it's my app, but the playlist backup feature is in the free unlimited trial.


Hopefully that's not too promotional -- not trying to run afoul of forum rules here, but I think it's what you're looking for.

Hey alostpacket! Your app seems perfect for me, only I'm running ICS on my G2 and using the default app Apollo for my music and BlueMuze isn't picking up the playlists I've created. Also BlueMuze crashes whenever I try to view my music from within it. Any advice?

You can find the answer in this thread. Read it:

Or if you want to share your list of songs from your favorite playlists, you can use this app:
