    In this post you mention that the place to add smart playlists in mt-daapd is in the web interface:
    http://forums.mt-daapd.org/viewtopic.php?t=4602

    I’ve already done that a long time ago. See the screenshot. The playlists work fine in my Soundbridge, but they don’t appear in iTunes.

    Are they supposed to appear in iTunes? What could cause them to not appear? Could it be a paths problem?

    I am running iTunes 6.0.4, mt-daapd svn 909. I have the following folder setup:

    mp3_dir = /unmirrored/My Music/iTunes

    Inside mp3_dir is my iTunes XML file. The MP3s are stored in:

    /unmirrored/My Music/iTunes/iTunes Music

    Can you zip up your database and email it to ron at pedde.com?

    They really should show up in iTunes. If they don’t, there is something seriously wrong. Probably explains why it won’t work on xbmc, either.

    Looks like I found the thread I was looking for.

    Ron: did you find out was was wrong with his database ? Because I have the exact same problem;

    I created a smartlist using the web interface. I can see there are songs in it through the web interface.

    ITUNES doesnt see the smart playlist at all, but sees all the files in the library.
    XBMC sees both the library and the smart playlist, but there is nothing in them (even the library is empty).


    Setup:
    XBMC, june 11th, 2006 release
    Nightlies 1206 release running on NSLU2

    I’ve sent Ron a couple of databases. Still waiting to hear back.

    Did you not get my mail? I’m moving domains, so it might have gotten lost. Lemme see.

    Oh yeah. The version you are running doesn’t like windows playlists. You need to get up to a current nightly. This is your db, right?


    2|e:mp3playlistssurf-a-billy|2|0||1147149639|e:mp3playlistssurf-a-billy.m3u|0
    3|e:mp3playlistssouthern rock|2|0||1147149640|e:mp3playlistssouthern rock.m3u|0

    etc, etc.

    The e:… is a sign of an old version of mt-daapd.

    — Ron

    p.s. I didn’t see *any* smart playlists in your db. Are you sure you sent me the one you wanted me to see?

    Errrr – no, I don’t have either of those tracks. I think that is someone else’s db…

    Mine has paths like: /unmirrored/My Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/ …

    What’s the problem again? It look like a champ on my iTunes?

    I show a library of 2570 songs, with a single playlist “Music From The 90’s” with 1393 items on it.

    What does it show on yours? And what version of mt-daapd?

    See the screenshot below. No “Music From the 90’s” playlist:

    This is with:

    mt-daapd 1206 (on SuSE 9.2)
    iTunes 6.0.3.5 (on Windows XP SP1)

    I’ve worked out how to make it appear. You have to double-click on the Music Server. This opens a new window which you can ignore. However now the Music server entry in the original window has an arrow next to it. Clicking on that reveals the smart playlist!!

    Now who thought up that poor design in iTunes?

    OK, so now this works, I will double-check in XBMC and see if the playlists are populated.

    Or you can just single click it. It’s a music source, just like any of the others on the sidebar there.

    OK, single clicking works, but it didn’t do that before. Perhaps something related to this was fixed since 1082?

    OK, so back to the original problem.

    I just tried browing mt-daapd in XBMC (mid may T3CH release), and both “Library” and “Music from the 90’s” are empty. They appear, but they have notihng in them.

    It works in iTunes, so hopefully it is something simple to getting working with XBMC?

    One of the best features of mt-daapd is the automatic scanning of the library. Updating the library on XBMC is a chore…
