Is there going to be a way to select which playlists or whatever to sync via WIFI from the android app?
I have implemented the ability to select specific playlists for sync from the android device (not artists or albums, just playlists)
I will probably make it available in a few days time
Oh thank you!!!  I can't wait to try it.  Keep up the good work!!!  I wish you can sync ratings with poweramp but maxmp doesn't want to sync with anything because he said it's not reliable to sync ratings with other players outside of Poweramps closed in rating system.   pity so I don't know if you will have any luck inquiring Max about it.   But I do know I've used a few players that will let you select what rating system you want to use.   I think PlayerPro and Jet Audio was two of them.   They had iSyncr on there, android, and a few others.   
I'm using a Galaxy S7, a Galaxy Tab S 8.4, Poweramp, and Musicbee.

Works on the Samsung S10 without any issues.

Glad to see that the new version hasn't affected anything.

Updated alpha version 0.3:
https://play.google.com/apps/internaltest/4700978781087552506

It needs the latest patched MusicBee v3.3
https://getmusicbee.com/patches/MusicBee33_Patched.zip

- changed and enhanced UI
- error log is now viewable from the action bar (also the error log is now written to the private musicbee data folder)
- ability to select adhoc playlists for sync
- now writes playlists and contents to the mediastore database (needed for some players)
- enhanced retry functionality for socket connection failures

It's starting to mature nicely. Some nice additions to this version. I like the settings option and to ability to see the error log from within the app. And it's working well on the Samsung S8. Didn't do a sync with the X5, but launched and the playlist option appears, so I assume a sync will work well here also.

Nice work.

Thanks.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

you need to view the error log in the app itself - click on the menu in the action bar

Yes! the three-dots-menu Error log - empty. (just a pop-up "COPY TO CLIPBOARD")
Scanned device - nothing since 15/02/2019 @ 10:45 from search=musicbee

However!
Rebooted the PC and restarted the device - all syncing worked 100%
Nice work!

i expect when you granted permissions on the android 6.0 device, you granted access to the Music folder and didnt grant access for the sd card itself ie. the Playlists folder is not permissioned.
If you open the Settings panel from the action bar, I think you can re-grant the permission. If not, i will make the enhancement so you can

Not sure... permission was granted and all worked ok with the previous version of MB sync.
I made no changes to the device settings on MB, other than adding 1 more playlist to the sync.
I tried it a couple more times this evening, and it's a bit hit and miss whether it works or not.

Wow! Just found out that wifi sync works even without internet. Just created hotspot from my phone (after turning off internet) and connected my laptop to that hotspot and sync still works.

@freddy, can you download the latest app alpha 0.3.1
https://play.google.com/apps/internaltest/4700978781087552506

and then click the settings button and redo the grant access. It now forces you to select the sd card itself so we can eliminate that as a potential reason for the issues
