    I’ve installed Firefly under OS X. I can access the music library just fine, but none of the smart or static playlists that I created in iTunes are available from Firefly.

    Are they suppsed to be there?

    How can I access them?

    They should be there. You will have to make sure that your music path is somewhere where your iTunes Music Library.xml is (usually ~/Music). If you have your music somewhere else, and chose *that* location for your music directory, you’ll have to add another music path to point to ~/Music.

    You can do that from the web interface (there is a pushbutton on the prefs panel under “advanced”) in the “config” tab. Add a new music directory, then go to the “status” page and hit the “full scan” button.

    Sit back and wait, and you should have playlists.

    You also probably want to move to the latest nightlies.

    Spotlight found two copies of iTunes Music Library.xml on my hard drive, so I added both using the advanced configuration page.

    That seemed to make it worse – I lost access to my music library completely.

    Then I uninstalled Firefly and installed svn-1376. For now everything seems to be hunky dory.

    Thx.

    Should have suggested that first. Wish roku would get the broken version off their web pages.
