    Is there the ability to create playlists from the web interface?

    I’ve got NSLU2 + uNSLUng + Firefly 1498. I use a Roku Soundbridge plus WinAMP.. I can do dynamic… but I’d like to create manual ones… any ideas?

    Nope. There is the start of one at /playlist.html, but it isn’t done yet.

    This is my last “bastion”, or whatever it is called. How can I manually create playlist, say a partylist for at party where people love everything from Stravinsky to Public Enemy (that is not exceptional with my friends 😀 ).

    I have a server in the basement, gentoo running mt-daapd with a flac-only music collection, played on a Roku Soundbridge. My dream would be to be able to create playlists as easy as on can do on a local mp3-collection with iTunes. Currently, I haven’t figured out how yet. I’ve tried rhythmbox, but it is not really to my liking.

    Maybe export the music directory with samba and run Mediamonkey on it (as iTunes is not able to handle flac)?

    The thing with samba + MediaMonkey went fine, however I cannot get mt-daapd to recognize my .m3u playlists. I’ll post some relevant info here and maybe you can tell me whether it should work:


    localhost / # cat /etc/mt-daapd.conf |egrep -v "^#" |egrep -v "^$"
    [general]
    web_root = /usr/share/mt-daapd/admin-root
    port = 3689
    admin_pw = mt-daapd
    db_type = sqlite3
    db_parms = /var/cache/mt-daapd
    mp3_dir = /mnt/onetouch500GB/share/hdd/data/public/music/yes
    servername = PENT
    runas = root
    playlist = /etc/mt-daapd.playlist
    extensions = .flac,.mp3,.m4a,.m4p,.ogg
    ssc_codectypes = ogg,flac,alac
    ssc_prog = /usr/bin/mt-daapd-ssc.sh
    logfile = /var/log/mt-daapd.log
    process_m3u = 1
    [plugins]
    plugin_dir = /usr/share/mt-daapd/plugins/

    So, as you can see, I have two .m3u’s in my music dir. None are recognized and this is what I get in the log:

    I’ve really tried, but to no avail. I can’t find out what’s wrong.

    I realized I could run with -d9 option, then I got this in the log-file:

    Maybe this could shed some further light to what is happening to you guys?

    Check your web config — make sure you have scanning/process_m3u set to yes. Looks like it’s set to “no”. Otherwise, you would see:

    About to scan
    Scanning
    About to scan
    Scanning

    etc.

    Wonderful, thanks a lot, now it worked directly.

    (But, I thought that the

    process_m3u = 1

    would enable this, isn’t that correct?)

    Used to, but that also controlled the processing of the iTunes stuff, so I split it out into process_playlists, process_m3u, and process_itunes. I’ll eventually add process_wml or whatever the windows media player playlist file is.

    It was a long standing annoyance that was well past time to fix.
