m3u playlists in Serviio?

I have Serviio v1.7.1 deployed on a QNAP TS-231 with QTS 4.2.2 26/11/2016. I have a number of m3u playlist files stored in a Playlists folder in the path of the Music folder where all my audio media is stored. I do not seem to be able to access these playlist files and use them for playing media. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to check?
Thanks in advance!

Check this viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9368&hilit=playlist+qnap
If that doesn't help, post the playlist and a log after you add a playlist file.

My experience with m3u playlists has been hit or miss. I seem to have better success with .pls files.
