Sonos is compatible with i Tunes playlists as well as M3U, WPL and PLS playlist files created with third-party software, such as Win Amp and Windows Media Player.
Sonos does not allow you to change or edit music and playlist files created by other applications; these files are always treated as “read-only.” If your playlists are still missing after sharing your Music folder Your playlist file is stored somewhere on your computer that is not your Music folder.
