Groove Music in Win 10

Hello all
Servioo used to find my *.wpl playlists in my music folder. With Win 10, they stopped Windows Media Player and we got Groove Music in stead.
I did find the location of playlist files for Grooove (*.zpl in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Packages\[Microsoft.ZuneMusic_xxxxxxxxxxxxx]\LocalState\Playlists).
I did share this folder and gave its name to Serviio (Library).
However, Servioo does not see those playlists, according to my Denon Ceol network receiver.
Can anybody help with a workaround?
Thank you in advance
Best regards
Jens

Re: Groove Music in Win 10

I tried to find some documentation about playlists, but was unsuccessful. For videos, I use either PLS or M3U playlist files, and they work perfectly. Sounds like Microsoft has done it again by changing the format of something that was already in use. Not the first time.

My guess is the easiest thing to do is to create a PLS or M3U file. I found this freeware program that can convert ZPL files into PLS or M3U. From that page, it appears that nothing but the Microsoft player can use a ZPL file.
