Prepare a party
The Prepare party is functionality to export sets of music along with a generated playlist to an external location for playing outside of Jajuk. It is also suitable for exporting parts of the collection for playing on MP3 players. Some features are specifically geared towards more limited devices, e.g. by limiting the chosen media types to only one media format if the MP3 player can not cope with other formats.
How to prepare a party
