    I run Firefly on a Mac with Leopard and iTunes 7.5
    The Firefly server finds the iTunes Library.xml file but does not find any playlists defined therein.

    My Music library resides under
    /Users/Shared/Wir/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music and the library file is
    /Users/Shared/Wir/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.xml
    Everybody has read access on that file.

    I can tell from the log file (level 9) that the server sees the xml file and scans it but no playlists appear.

    from Log file: Processing playlists
    2008-01-06 22:30:15 (a0226074): Starting playlist scan
    2008-01-06 22:30:15 (a0226074): About to scan /Users/Shared/Wir/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.xml
    2008-01-06 22:30:15 (a0226074): Finished playlist loop
    2008-01-06 22:30:15 (a0226074): Executing: end transaction

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Go into your web config (via the preference pane) into configuration and click the “advanced” link. Find the options for “enable_playlists” and “enable_itunes” and “enable_m3u” and make sure they are set to “yes”

    I can’t find these options in advanced configuration. I find only the following:
    Process .m3u Files: yes
    Process xmlFiles: yes
    Am I using the wrong version (SVN 1491)?

    I think iTunes changed the name of its xml file at some point, and perhaps this was before that change.

    It might be worth getting 1586 from the nightlies site: http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org/?limit=9999 (scroll down to the binaries for 1586).
