Configuration > Playlist

Write extended info

If this option is enabled, Mp3tag writes extended information to the playlist file according to the format string.
The audio player doesn't have to read the information from the tag of the audio file and displays the extended information from the playlist.

Entries relative to working directory

Enable this option, if you don't want full file paths in your playlist. This is enabled by default.

Create Playlist automatically

This option enables automatic creation of playlists when saving tags to files.

Filename of playlist

You can specify the filename (or a format string for the filename) of the playlist here. If you use '*.m3u8' as file extension, Mp3tag writes a UTF-8 encoded playlist (Unicode with support for special characters). You can use the following placeholders within the filename as well as the Mp3tag scripting funtions.

%album%Album
%artist%Artist
%comment%Comment
%year%Year
%genre%Genre
%_directory%Directory name
%_folderpath%Complete path of the folder

Mp3tag uses the first selected file for replacing the placeholders at runtime.

Examples:

%artist% - %album% (%year%).m3u would be artist - album (year).m3u

%_folderpath%%_directory%.m3u resolves to folderpath\directory.m3u

Show confirm filename dialog

This options shows an input dialog for the playlists filename when creating the playlist. You can change the filename of the playlist within this dialog but Mp3tag will not evaluate placeholders entered in this dialog.

Don't create directories

Since you can also use relative and absolute file paths as playlist file names - e.g. %artist%\%album%.m3u - this option prevents Mp3tag from creating any directories when creating playlists.
