Request: default new playlist to m3u8


When you create a new playlist in Emby, it defaults to an xml format that isn’t portable or usable with most other media players and this has carried over to Jellyfin

I’d like to request if you guys can change that so when you create a playlist, it gets created in m3u8 format by default instead of xml (or maybe even have a toggle in settings ?).

I do it this way because playlists are important to me and I like having all of my playlists in a folder called playlists in my music library which contains 1 m3u8 for each playlist.

I’m a developer myself and if you can point me to the right location in the source, I’ll be glad to see if I can implement this myself.
