I realise this is a dumb question, but I’ve been searching the forums and the wiki to answer the question – How do I use playlists
I am using an NSLU2, I have iTunes on XP and an Audiotron. I wanted to play the iTunes playlists on the Audiotron, so thought perhaps Firefly might create M3U files from the iTunes playlist. I think the answer is “no” since all the data is stored in the SQL database
But I’m left curious now – what is the point of the Playlist option within Firefly – My playlists (both Itunes and some static M3U playlists I have lying around) show up in the “Smart Playlist” webpage. But I don’t see them in Itunes when I open the SHARED section.
Is it just the Roku that can see the playlists?
Sorry for the dumb question, but it’s become a search for the Holy Grail to understand how this works and I fear for my sanity if I don’t find out
If so when you click on that triangle, I think it will turn into a triangle pointing down and you should see your playlists appear magically under the server name.
That’s funny to me, because as a mac user, the disclosure triangles are normal and obvious. Clearly they aren’t for a Windows user. I guess if you aren’t used to seeing them everywhere, they must look like some kind of selection icon or something.
Consequently I keep forgetting to advise people to “click on the triangle”. Lol.
