    Hello everyone,

    setup under Ubuntu Intrepid was painless and easy – also making .m3u playlists.

    Now, I’d like to hide the “all”-section of files (ie. in iTunes all songs that are shown when I click the name of my Firefly server), basically showing nothing there, only showing the files under my Playlists.

    In detail:

    The way it is now (which is not broken in any way, it’s just the way the server behaves):

    Code:
    +MyFireflyServer
    –Playlist 1
    –Playlist 2
    –Playlist 3
      Clicking “MyFireflyServer” shows all files within the mp3-directory.
      Clicking “Playlist 1” shows only those files mentioned in playlist1.m3u .
      Clicking “Playlist 2” shows only those files mentioned in playlist2.m3u .
      Clicking “Playlist 3” shows only those files mentioned in playlist3.m3u .

    What I want:

    Code:
    +MyFireflyServer
    –Playlist 1
    –Playlist 2
    –Playlist 3
      Clicking “MyFireflyServer” shows no files.
      Clicking “Playlist 1” shows only those files mentioned in playlist1.m3u .
      Clicking “Playlist 2” shows only those files mentioned in playlist2.m3u .
      Clicking “Playlist 3” shows only those files mentioned in playlist3.m3u .

    Well, if you want stuff to show differently in iTunes, you have to modify iTunes. 😉

    Muahaha.

    It is my understanding that any daap server issues a list of all files available, unsorted by any playlist. Correct? Can this be circumvented somehow?

    As you proudly tell everyone thru your sig that you own a Roku Soundbridge: Will the soundbridge display all files or only the playlists?

    Thanks in advance,
    Christian.

    The SoundBridge handles the DAAP share differently than iTunes does.

    iTunes downloads each and every song, playlistss, etc. on connect.
    The SoundBridge doesnt do that. It downloads the information about the chosen container directly, and let’s the user chose. A container here of course can be a playlist, or query by artist, album, etc. even the whole library.
