Correct… it doesn’t parse the file based playlist anymore — they got moved into the database. Generally, though, the ones in the database are like the ones in the file, except parsed and available immediately rather than having to start and stop the server.

I left the .playlist directive in there, because I’m going to make the server backup the playlists to the .playlist file on startup and shutdown, so that way you have a backup of the playlists. It won’t be user editable, though.

Ok, that makes sense. But, I am trying to create a smart playlist along the lines of “path includes dirname”. I could not find a way to do that with the wizard, the “path” option used to be available as a directive in the .playlist file. Is there an equivalent that I can use ?.
