I've used iTunes (on a PC) for creating some playlists even though I didn't commit to using iTunes indefinitely. Now I am wondering how much of these lists can be preserved if I use some other player. I've exported my one of these playlists and opened in WordPad to see what I would be faced with if I make any changes. It seems that even if I stay with iTunes but move the root of my music or the directory structure I would have to manually edit the playlist (or write some kind of script) or start over. I didn't even see a setting in iTunes to make the playlist files be relative to a some given root file. Is that correct? Next, if I move to some server like Daphile I will probably have to recreate the playlists there as well. Even if I had playlists that were relative to a root directory the path delimiter is different (linux "/" vs windows "\") . Is that correct? Any other general info on playlist portability, etc is appreciated as well.
