Like many other users, I share(/sync) my song and playlist files between multiple computers (on different OS). The folder structure in all computers are the same.

It would be great if Audacious provides an option to save the playlists using relative paths (rather than absolute). The playlist file then becomes instantly "playable" on all computers!

Yes, I agree this would be a good feature to have. I think it was there at some point, maybe back in the XMMS days, but the code probably bitrotted over the years and was eventually removed.

I have v 3.10 now, and I see that "Use relative paths when possible" is checked in Settings -> Playlist -> Export section.

However, the export is still exporting the full paths. Can you please help understand under what conditions will the "relative" path be used?

Thank you.

The song files need to be in (or in a sub-folder of) the same folder containing the .m3u playlist.

If you have further issues, please ask on the forum rather than commenting on an closed feature request.
