Players - Q. Can I use 3rd party software to create a playlist for my A&K player?

Answer:

No, unfortunately this is not possible. The playlist feature for the Astell&Kern media unit will need to be created new within the media player itself. The player is not able to support a playlist file created from a 3rd party software or outside of the AK media unit.

In plain sight, the Playlist file is merely a textual content that offers the order sequence for the media unit to conduct music playback. However, each playlist file specifies the exact location of each music file that you've tagged, while the media files can be stored and scatted in either internal and external memories.

The index function (or the locations code) is the essence of why the player is not able to support playlist files created new or edited from a 3rd party software outside of the AK media unit, as the location of the files isn't identical from the computer to the player.
