in svn-1463, where are the dynamic playlists stored?
I was accustomed to being able to edit /etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.playlist to make changes in 0.2.4. While I **really** like the new version w/ the playlist editor/wizard, I can’t seem to find where this info is recorded…
ps. I’m using svn-1463 on a Linkstation running Debian, and a M1001 Roku. Very, very nice combination.28th December 2006 at 2:19 pm #8142
It’s in the database itself. How to view/edit depends on the type of database you have, e.g. sqlite2 or sqlite3…28th December 2006 at 2:25 pm #8143
this sounds tricky to edit.
Know anyone who has done it successfully – or is it something best left alone? (one of those “don’t tinker here” signs posted next to it…?)28th December 2006 at 3:29 pm #8144
If your db is sqlite3, you could open it using:
For sqlite2, it’s probably
Not sure what command line gdbm editor there would be for /var/cache/mt-daapd/songd.gdb …
Now (lets assume sqlite) you could type
select * from playlists;
To list the existing playlists.
If you know a bit about sql syntax, you can do with it whatever you want. Since sqlite is not designed for parallel access though, I would stop Firefly while you manipulate the DB.29th December 2006 at 12:27 am #8145

It *might* work even with it running — it’s got retries set up, so as long as you don’t use a persistent connection to the db, you *ought* to be able to much around with it as long as you don’t do long-running queries.
Or so theory says, anyway.
What ccrdude said is right, though… turning off the server while mucking with the db will always work, whereas leaving it running *should probably* work.
But you know how that goes.
Best documentation for how the playlists work is to look at the existing playlists… The only fields you need to fill in for a self-built “smart” playlist (iirc) is “name”, “type” (1), and “query”. You can leave the rest defaults.
