Playlist Syncing?

Playlist Syncing?
Before I made the move to Linux, I always used Windows Media Player to sync my music to my mp3 devices. My husband has been hounding me to find a Linux replacement, and for all of the players I've tried, Nightingale seems to be the best.

The only problem is, when I sync my playlists to my mp3 player, it just moves the songs, not the actual playlist files, so that when I go to the playlist menu in the device, it says there are no playlists present. I am using a Sony Walkman mp3 player. My music collection is so massive and I have playlists based on genre, mood, and also a couple special ones for my kids, so having the playlist sync (and not just the songs IN the playlist) is essential. I know in WMP you could just drag & drop a playlist to the device sync and the playlists would all be there on the device itself. Any help with this?

Thanks everyone!

I don't know specifically, but I think you need the MTP extension, and I'm not sure if we ported it yet...

One of the other devs will be more knowledgable about this than me.

RE: Playlist Syncing?
First of all, playlist files can get synced. You can enable it by clicking at the down-arrow and enabeling playlist writing. See the manual for additional information, the page you're probably interested in is chrome://foldersync/content/manual/en/profiles.htm#playlistwriting.
Playlist files are not compartible with all players, if you need another format (currently there is regular and extended M3U only) feel free to leave a message here.

Threre are, however, some devices that only accept playlists synced via MTP. Those can't get filled via Nightingale currently, as we don't have a MTP device support plugin yet (the Songbird one is closed-source).
