    Ok fizze…I get it. 🙂

    I played with the relative paths thing earlier, but think I had issues due to my directory layout and the way I was trying to locate the .m3u files.

    So I guess it’s worth fiddling with again. (After awhile it just makes my brain hurt, I guess).

    Course I think maybe xspf playlist support would make all of this easier since it uses a URI-type reference to the music files (hint hint, nudge nudge) 😀

    Okay… wait… weren’t you just pushing for wl-hdd builds?

    New rule:

    People can only push for one feature at a time.

    Otherwise, that’s just *greedy*.

    The tricky thing s to put the m3u in the right directory on the slug, so mt-daapd picks it up alright. End of story. 😉

    Does mt-daapd only scan for playlists if you request a full scan though? Perhaps the “aggresive” scan looks for an updates static playlists.

    I much prefer smart playlists to these PITA static playlists. Drop (properly tagged) music in the library directory and enjoy. No playlists to goof around with.

    It should notice the file change time and reload it. Theory says, anyway.

    But I’m with you… I make smart playlists for everything via grouping or comment or genre tags.

    I just discovered the grouping tag. I’ve been wishing for a way to filter live/studio for a while without placing that in the comment field but the grouping tag seems appropriate for that.

    I’m surprised people bother with static playlists. Even if you only want to hear the same set of songs in the same order every time, a smart playlist can do that.

    Okay, then I’ll let you slide on this one. 🙂
