    I’m using svn-1281 nightly and I can’t get my iTunes playlists to show up. There’s zero documentation on how this is supposed to work, so I’m hoping I’m doing it right. I’ve put my “iTunes Music Library.xml” file at the root of my music library:


    [email protected]:/mnt/storage/music/library# ls
    iTunes Music iTunes Music Library.xml

    I’ve tried deleting the database and rescanning it, but the .xml file is never picked up. 😥

    BTW, the xml file is from the latest iTunes on OS X.

    You’ll need to set “process_m3u” to 1 in your config, and it should pick it up.

    Ah, that did the trick! Perhaps that parameter should be renamed to “process_playlists”…

    There is a bug filed on that — I’m not sure how it will all fall out, but it will indeed be less unintuitive.
