Big Sur and Music App

hi has anybody else been experiencing problems with Sonos and the new Music app that replaced iTunes. I can no longer import playlists created on the Music app to Sonos.

Sonos no longer recognises .xml files generated by the app.

I’ve tried both the ‘iTunes Music Library.xml’ as generated automatically by the Music app  and individual playlists as .xml from Music but Sonos won’t read them.

 

If I place an old iTunes generated .xml into the Sonos folder it reads it and updates the library accordingly so I know there isn’t a problem with where I’m placing files.

Any solutions anyone?

 

Thanks!

I stand corrected it does read the ‘iTunes Music Library.xml’ it just takes ages to update the library!

May I ask where you saved the xml file? And do you still have the .musiclibrary file (which I understand is the new library file format for the apple music app)?

My sonos S1 app can read my music files but doesnt import the playlists… as the .musiclibrary format is not supported by sonos I exported the library as .xml but it doesnt recognize it.
