I'm afraid we're having problems with some uploads right now, and uploading a bunch of MP3s might take quite a while this week. Sorry for the delays you are experiencing; my team is working on making it better.
I'm a little late to the party, but better late than never right?
I think I have a better solution. After much reading of forums and gnashing of teeth, I figured out how to get banshee to sync playlists to an sd-card. I read lots of instructions on different forums/mailing lists, some gave only part of the information you need, some simply gave bad info (for example several posts showed the .is_audio_player file with a line "playlist_format" instead of "playlist_formats". That "s" makes all the difference!)
Add a file .is_audio_player to the root directory of your sdcard or android device's main memory.
Open the file and add these lines:
name="name you want banshee to call your phone"
(there are other lines you can add, just google for .is_audio_player for more info. That last line comes for a post left by one of the developers of banshee noting that banshee won't pick up the last line in the file without a hard return at the end)
Then load banshee, your sd card will now show that it supports playlists, and the sync function will work for music and playlists.
Pro-tip, you can create a smart playists to act as a meta-playlist for all the playlists you want to transfer over. Your media player on the phone should now pick up all your music and all your playlists (only checked by me with the google play music app).\
hope this helps somebody...
We've just released ogg support on devices that support it (Android, Ubuntu).
There are 2 things that held back ogg support in our first release:
We also surveyed mimetypes of our existing users, and only a very small percentage of people had ogg files (I do understand the chicken-and-egg situation).
