I suggested this as a performance enhancement on a related bug - I think
it's a good idea.
Someone should raise an enhancement request...

Otherwise one could write some sort of parser that isolates the playlist
section of the iTunes XML and point Slim at this?

Subject: [slim] iTunes question




Does anyone know if is possible to partialy integrate with iTunes just
enough to get the playlists?
I have not allowed iTunes to "import" all of the music, just index a
file share, but it would be nice to make use of playlists built on the
iPod. An alternative would be to push the SlimServer playlists that I
have created into iTunes.

James - I saw this in your bug last night, and think it's a fantastic idea.
Please file a feature request for it. It likely won't make it into 6.0, but
shortly after.

I have a number of iTunes / Memory / Performance tweaks in progress as well.

The importer has this code already. Someone willing, could simply strip out the
unwanted tracks section and post a 'iTunes-playlist' plugin. All users would
have to do is enable this one instead of the standard that is included with
slimserver.

Actually I was thinking of having a 3rd button - "iTunes - Playlists Only" in Setup.

Having another plugin is impractical and confusing.
