Playlists - Can't view, even though they are on my server.

server-mac

#1

I have a QNAP TS-251+ server running the latest firmware. Plex Pass is active and the latest version. I have the latest version of iTunes running on an iMac with the latest OS. I have tried multiple times to load my 40 iTunes playlists and they never show up in Plex. I have also used SuperSync to upload my music and playlists and it confirms they are there. The server and iMac are running on the same network via ethernet cables. I can not figure out what I am doing wrong and I would very much appreciate any help to get me on the right track.

TIA

I have tried everything I can think of and the playlists do not show up in the Plex playlist folder. The NAS has software to allow access to the files/folders that are loaded on to it and it shows the 40 playlists are loaded into the playlist folder on the NAS. SuperSync confirms the playlists are loaded in the same folder as well. But once Plex is running the playlist folder reflects no files are there. I am about to give up on Plex and find another solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I Hope i understand what you saying as the following screenshots explain.

Thanks for your reply, but it looks like your playlists are showing up in the Playlist folder. If I open the folder, it indicates it is empty. Nothing shows up. My playlists are 40 different, "m3u" files of audio tracks (songs). I haven't even though about video yet. I can't get it to handle my small song collection of about 24K songs.

Well it's probably file format. Google search will determine.

What file format? The music files are mp3 and the playlists are m3u which are both acceptable formats for Plex. I don't fully understand your comment.

Thanks for your reply.
