Reply To: making .m3u playlists available in Soundbridge Radio

#15699

Anonymous

I saw a few references to the “Advanced Config” screen, but I can’t find them. (Is that a Windows only config tool?). I running it on Fedora, and the config file is /etc/ mt-daapd.conf

The “Smart Playlist” option was left at the default, and I changed the process_m3u to “1′. It shows up as enabled in the status portion of the firefly web server pages.

Is this the right was to do it?

/etc/mt-daapd.conf

#
# playlist (optional)
#
# This is the location of a playlist file.
# This is for Apple-style “Smart Playlists”
# See the mt-daapd.playlist file in the
# contrib directory for syntax and examples
#
# This doesn’t control static playlists… these
# are controlled with the “process_m3u” directive
# below.
#

playlist /etc/mt-daapd.playlist

#
# process_m3u
#
# By default m3u processing is turned off, since most m3u files
# sitting around in peoples mp3 directories have bad paths, and
# I hear about it. 🙂
#
# If you are sure your m3u files have good paths (i.e. unixly pathed,
# with relative paths relative to the directory the m3u is in), then
# you can turn on m3u processing by setting this directive to 1.
#
# I’m not sure “unixly” is a word, but you get the idea.

process_m3u 1
