Note:
The external playlists are only accessible through "folder", but not " playlist" section.  
In this method, for the music files in SD cards, the external playlists have to be placed in the SD card.
For music files in internal storage, the external playlists have to be placed in the internal storage.

Preparation:
1. Download link of foobar2000:
Click here
(Or you could download the latest version in the website instead. The opeation are similar. )
2. Please Connect the M3K/M5/M6/M7/M9/M11 to the computer in storage mode first.
(>>>More information about accessing the internal storage/SD card after connecting the
M6/M7/M9/M11 player to the computer:
Click here

Detailed operation:
1. Add the music files/folders to the root directory of internal storage/SD card of the M player.


2. Add the same music files/folders in local disk of your computer to the now playing playlist of foobar2000.


3. Choose file-save playlist in the foobar and save the playlist in the desktop of the computer.





Note: For M3Pro/M3K/M5, please save the playlist to the root directory of the M3K/M5. No need to go on working the following step!!
Disonnect the M3Pro/M3K/M5 with the computer. Form file browser, you could find the m3u playlist.

4.  Open the playlist via Note pad:

1)If you are creating the Playlist for music files in internal storage, please replace the 'drive letter'(C/D/E/F) of the playlist to '/storage/emulated/0/',
2) If you are creating the Playlist for music files in external sd card, please replace the 'drive letter'
(C/D/E/F)of the playlist to '/storage/external_sd/', like this:
(For M11, the path should be '/storage/external_sd1/' or '/storage/external_sd2/')


Please remember to replace the'\' with the'/' as well:

After finishing replacing the drive letter, please save the playlist in Unicode format (and not ANSI) :




5. Copy the playlist to the root directory of the internal storage(for 4-1)/external sd card(for 4-2)



6.Disonnect the M6/M7/M9/M11/M15 with the computer.


Enter FiiO Music-folder and choose the playlist to select the music file you want to play now.

Hi there, I have an M5 and I have upgraded to FW1.4.7 and I want to use external playlists. I'm using linux  not windows so foobar does not create the right folder structure for the m3u or m3u8 to work for me. I have tried manually using the following format:

/storage/external_sd/Tunes/Adam F/Colours/01-Intro-Adam F-Colours.mp3

But this does not work. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

We have replied you via email. If you are using M5, you don not need to add /storage/external_sd in front of the path.

Best regards
