Please excuse the ramble, it is what i do
Like many I have long had a love/hate relationship with iTunes/Music that has recently been trending towards the hate side and so I am looking for alternatives.
This was somewhat prompted by my recent purchase of a Brennan B2 “Jukebox.” With that I have re-ripped all my CDs into FLAC. The Brennan plays nicely with Sonos so I am well covered at home, but with restrictions looking like they may be easing, I need a solution for when I travel that handles off line playing (i.e. on a plane, in a country where I have limited data and can’t stream) VOX looked like it might handle that so I signed up for Premium for a year.
The problem comes that I have sliced and diced my music into a variety of playlists for the mood/situation I’m in. They are simple m3u with a Artist/Album/Track structure. But from all I’ve read here there appears to be no way for me to upload them to Vox. Is that true? Everything seems to suggest I have recreate them on the Vox side. This I won’t do, or in many cases can’t do: Being a (retired) software guy I have a database of all my music and mainly generate playlist from the database. Without these playlists Vox player is basically useless for me. Since I’ve paid in advance, I’ll use the Vox Cloud as an additional backup site.
Am I wrong? Is there a way to upload/import my playlists? I can generate them in different format (JSON, XML, CSV, etc) if that makes it easier.
Thanks in advance…
