Hit ‘Next’ and browse for the path to your Input Files and select a path for your changed file set.

NOTE: The ‘Browse’ function might be set to look only for *.xml files. Change that to be looking for all (*.*) files for the *.ncc or *.opf file to be visible!

There are Optional Parameters:

ID3 Tagging : IDR tags will give you Title, Album title, Artist and Track Number if such data can be retrieved from the meta data of your file set.

Playlist generation: This will give you these different playlists: M3U, M3U8, PLS, XSPF and WPL

Hit ‘Finish’ and run that job with Ctrl + F1 and see which playlist suits your purposes best.
