Hello all !

I am using FooBar2000 to sort my Argentine Tango Music. In order to better search through my hundreds of gbs of music, I create playlists with only the best songs and versions pulled out from my bulks files. I would like to move these playlists to my mobile phone. I have a Lenovo Moto G5. I am using the FooBar2000 mobile app there. I have used "One Way Sync" to move these playlists to my device. This works great except for the fact that certain songs "cannot be found" by the mobile app. I noticed that these are all songs that have Spanish characters in the titles, albums, or artist names. I assume what is happening is that the playlist references a file name with the Spanish characters but the mobile app searches without the correct Spanish names so it cannot find them. The problem is I don't know what to do about it ! Please help !

Problem noted.

What exact playlist files are you trying to send? Can you email a sample to peter@dbpoweramp.com for analysis?
What if you save .M3U8 playlists with UTF-8 encoded file names?
