View Full Version : [gnome] RhythmBox: Playlist Entries were Jumbled

I wanted to move my music and playlists to my laptop.
Using grsync I back up music to external hard drive, then resored to laptop. So far so good.
Using "save to file" I then saved each playlist to a designated folder.
Then on the laptop I used "load file" to get the playlist into laptop.
Everything went fine except when I went to play the songs, the play order had been jumbled (on a list where they need to be sung in order).

Is there a way of re-ordering the songs without having to create fresh playlists?

Regards

John

I don't think so. what extension you used for the playlist?

Try opening it with a text editor to see if the order is correct.

Apologies for the delay in returning to this thread.
The extension for the playlist is *.pls.
When I opened the file with a text editor the order was not correct.
In the end it was much easier: I simply dragged the songs within rhythmbox to the required order and they fell into place.
Thanks for your help.
