    I'm going out on a limb here to say I don't believe BluOS playlists are the solution you are looking for.

    What sources do you intend to create playlists out of? If it is a streaming service, make the playlist on that service and it will be saved to your account. If it is your NAS music, the playlist could be an .m3u playlist. If it is a combination of these, then you couldn't take it on the fly and play it to a non-BluOS player that doesn't support the exact same music services in the exact same way. 

    Even if you were to edit a BluOS playlist from a NAS, the path for each of the songs would point to the network address of your NAS on your network. You would have to go through every line and change the path. Might as well use an m3u playlist that uses relative paths, and can be used with your BluOS players and most other music player devices as well with little or no need to manually adapt.

    I asked for this as a feature request in 2018. Guess Bluesound isn't interested.

    Why don't you copy your songs from your network storage to a USB Stick and add a playlist in 5 seconds with MP3Tag. Assuming all your songs are tagged perfectly allready.

    That would work for very small playlists and limited number of tracks.

    If you have, say, 10K on your NAS ( 200 Gb in flac) tracks it becomes unwieldy.

    Moreover, if you like to create playlists "on the fly" in the node, you can only store them as a backup on an usb stick in the back of the device. Since the format is proprietary, you cannot edit the file.

    Hence the request to export the playlist in a more readable format like m3u.

    Playlists would contain location to music stored on local NAS, no streaming services.  A .m3u playlist would be great, as they are stored in plain text and editable with a text editor. Relative paths are used.
