    That worked! I got the exact path by using "Properties" of the file in ES File Explorer.

    I've tried:
    * \Download\Window\AllWindow.M3U
    * Download\Window\AllWindow.M3U

    But I can't seem to get the Kodi client to play the playlist no matter what I try.
    I have never really tested Kodi on Android, but on my samsung S3 the absolute path of the Download folder is: /storage/emulated/0/Download

    so, try to use a file explorer to check the absolute path, and use slash rather than backslash

    How to play an audio playlist from an Event

    To create a playlist in XBMC, go to the Music section, switch to library mode and then select "New playlist...". Add all the songs you want then save:

Name:	playlist.jpg

    On windows your playlist are saved as m3u files in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\playlists\ music

    Warning: In the current version of XBMC (Frodo), there is a bug that tag m3u files as picture files, so when the plugin will try to load your m3u file XBMC will actually try to start a slideshow. To fix this you need to create a file call advancedsettings.xml in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata, and paste the following lines in it:

    Code:
    <advancedsettings>
      <pictureextensions>
        <remove>.m3u</remove>
      </pictureextensions> 
    </advancedsettings>
    Then in HS, create an event with a XBMC action of type "Player Open Media". Choose "File" as the media type, and enter the path of your m3u file like in the screenshot below.
