View Full Version : "Nothing to play" when computer restarts

I have a Squeezebox and Slimserver 5.4.

I close the computer where Slimserver is installed, over night.¨



When I start in the morning “Now Playing” there is nothing to play. Probably
has the playlist disappeared.



What I remember is that the Slimserver 5.31 gave the possibility to go on
with the playing from night before (even after closing Slimserver. I can be
wrong about this.



But what I wonder is: Is it possible to in some way save playlist etc from
the time when I close the computer until I start it again so it is possible
to just press play and there will be music.

Since I have about 20000 songs it takes some time just to start everything
in shuffle mode.



Kind Regards

Tore,

This should work just fine, SlimServer saves out the current playlist
and should reload it when a player reconnects or the server starts up.

What OS is your SlimServer computer running? Is your playlists folder
set correctly?
