Title: Replace previously imported playlists with newly copied versions (refresh)?
Post by: pstein on July 22, 2022, 15:35:07
I imported some playlists 3 months ago (Android 12).
These worked fine in AIMP.

Now I have partially replaced the MP3s and copied new playlists (in *.m3u8 format) into the old Android directory.

But when I start AIMP now then the old playlists are still displayed.
Bad.

How can I force AIMP to replace the playlists (with the same filename) with the new versions.
I.e. do a refresh?
Again: all playlist file names and directory are the same as the old version.

Do I really have to manually delete all old playlists in AIMP first and then re-import them?

I cannot believe it.

We planning to implement a smart-playlists based on another playlist in v3.30 - https://www.aimp.ru/blogs/?p=1187

Ok, thank you.

That means this refresh is only planned but not implemented yet.
So users have currently to manually remove the old playlists (from cache?) and manually re-import then.

Correct?

I use MP3Tag (on PC) for that. The music for my audio player is on an SD card in the Music folder. In the Playlist folder on the SD card I have stored all playlists that refer to the files in the Music folder. To change or add music, I load the desired old playlist from the SD card into MP3Tag by selecting it, make the changes and save this changed complete track list in an updated playlist (m3u) on the SD card. After deleting the old list, I import this new playlist into the AIMP selection menu. The advantage of AIMP is precisely the use of playlists, which gives me the opportunity to combine different music titles.

Yes, this is only way for now.
