This page describes how people can share playlists that other people could play directly on their computer, provided they have the audio.
With TINT-based filing
Currently the only way to achieve the above is via TINT-based filing
- you can use TINT-based filing for sharing playlists. E.g. a .m3u can be placed in the TINT root. (e.g. C:/path_to_my_tinted_music/)
- TINT-based filing with an additonal folder "../tint/.." (e.g. C:/path_to_my_music/tint/)
- allows sharing without the need to put the playlist directly in the audio root
- path is
- the m3u file includes relative path
- C:/My Music/tint/00724383741328/1/1.flac
- C:/My Music/mym3ufiles/my-playlist-for-sunday.m3u (same level as the tint folder)
- C:/My Music/tint/my-playlist-for-sunday.m3u (if you want to have it in the same directory)
- a path in the .m3u would be ../tint/00724383741328/1/1.flac
Without TINT-based filing
There is currently no way known to tango.info, to share directly playable playlists without TINT-based filing.
foobar with foo_texttools lets you export a plain list of TINTs as text file. There is currently no method known how to play. One way is that the receiver of a TINT list uploads his library to t.i (tint + path) and also uploads the TINT list. He could then get back a m3u file containg the pathnames for the TINT list.
Concerning 2.: What's about xspf playlists? Very easy to share them, no TINT-based file naming needed!
