Finally decided to dump itunes once and for all - so many glitches - so many paracetamol.......

So, I'm folder based (and proud) and looking to move playlists to my iPhone 6 using EaseUS MobiMover.

On the Ease transfer page you go to 'Select Files' - from the individual file folders of music, that would be easy - but I use playlists!!! So, my question is - where do I find a beatunes folder with 'Playlists' in it (looked everywhere :(

Many thanks
Jan

    Hey Jan,

    you can export playlists by right-clicking on them. Several formats are offered. I'm not sure however, what EaseUS MobiMover requires.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks Hendrik

    I've tried a number of apps/programmes over the last week and have finally come up with something that seems efficient!

    I'm uploading tracks to Google Drive (playlist; highlight tracks and drag to the drive) and using Flac on my iphone. Big advantage is that Flac plays m4a which itunes never could. It works well with GD and other clouds. You can also download what you want to the phone and leave the majority in the cloud. So far so good 

    Hi Hendrik

    Seems to be good now although slightly long winded. But I'm out of the clutches of iTunes and I'm happy with that 

    The best way I've found to use Google Drive with Flacbox is this:

    In GD, New/Folder
    Create a folder for each playlist
    Go to BeaTunes
    Open a playlist / copy the tracks and drag and drop to the appropriate folder in GD

    Open Flacbox on phone
    Go to Playlists and setup playlists as required

    Connect/ GD (under cloud services)
    Shows MyDrive and the folders
    Hit the dots on the right of the folder
    Add to playlist
    Choose/ Done!!

    Flacbox is a good looking player that has a few goodies that most players don't have - playback speed, equalizer, song loading etc
    It's worth a try if you want to work folder based with BT but also need playlists transferred to your phone.

    Regards
    Jan
