    Hi,

    I think I need some help with smart playlists. I use 1018. I have already tested that if I enter a line in the database, it will appear in the web interface. So I am pretty sure that currently the playlist file seems not to be processed.

    It is as follows:


    # ls -l mt-daapd.playlist

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 3772 2006-05-11 13:50 /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.playlist

    # cat /usr/local/etc/mt-daapd.playlist

    "60's Music" {
    Year >= 1960 && Year < 1970
    }

    "Recently Added" {
    Date after 2 weeks ago
    }

    "Rock" {
    genre includes "Rock"
    }

    "Recently Added MP3s" {
    date after last month AND file includes ".mp3"
    }

    I have debuged and read in the code. But no clue. Anybody else?

    Best Regards,
    Carsten.

    the smart playlists are DAAP (iTunes) specific, for the moment.

    I found mine also not working when I switched to RSP.

    plus, you might want the playlist file WRITEABLE by the user mt-daapd runs under. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for te hints, fizze.

    I will try our to make it writeable. But I think it’s not the thing you noticed, as there will be no entry in the database at all. The playlist file seems not to be processed at all…

    yes, the writeable thing is merely so you can edit them through the web interface.

    Fizze,

    so it is. No change. My playlist file is not processed. Maybe somebody else with a good idea?

    Thanks,
    Carsten.

    Nope, the playlist file is cheerfully ignored in nightlies. it’s stored in the database instead. That’s the “smart” tab on the web interface.

    I tried to set up some clever (and smart of course) playlists with the web interface and found the field “file” and “date”, amongst others, missing.

    Is it just not in the wizard ? or is the functionality different ?

    Just not in the wizard. You can dump it right in the text box, though.

    thanks.
    this Link works for non admins, too. πŸ˜‰

    edit:
    On a sidenote, might it be an option to replace the Documentation link on the http://www.mt-daapd.org to http://trac.mt-daapd.org/index.cgi/wiki/ ?

    aiiiiieeee! I’m only one person!

    In all honesty, I don’t know where it’s all going to end up. I have hopes I can get trac working with phpBB logins, in which case, that’s where I’ll go.

    But I haven’t moved the content from the wiki over yet, and the wiki has the most stuff in it. So I’ll leave it for now.

    Not to mention, it’s all going to slide over to the firefly domain at some point soon anyway.

    Mad props to your astonishing piece of software, anyhow.

    way to go.
