I think it's easier than you think: as soon as you play a song, you create
a playlist. When you open the web interface, you'll see the current
playlist on the right. Once you've got a selection of songs you'd like to
save, you can do this from the web interface or using the SavePlaylist.pm
plugin. You'll find it in the the "Browse playlist" menu.

This is a newbie question, though I'm not a newbie, but haven't
needed to do this before.

The Squeezebox instructions talk about adding songs to playlists,
browsing playlists, etc. but nowhere can I see basic instructions on
either creating a playlist from scratch or saving the current
playlist (either on the Squeezebox or via the Web interface). Must be
easy, but have I just failed to read the right page or is this not
explicitly mentioned?

A request for Alien BBC, but I don't know if it is more trouble than
it is worth to do.

On the Squeezebox itself (doesn't matter so much for the Web
interface) it would be nice to be able to move some of the menu items
around. In particular (and this must be easier than doing it for
general menu items), once I have created a playlist or playlists for
my favourite programmes, it would be useful to have the AlienStream
Playlists item at the top of the menu.

By the way, as Alienstream is no longer being used, perhaps the name
of this item needs changing.

I think moving the menus around would be quite hard (unless you want to
hack the plugin.pm module!).

How about giving you the option to remember the last menu you selected.
That way if you always select from the playlist this is displayed
first. The AlienStream name is a hangup from the past - I think we
should change it to "Alien Playlist".

Incidently did you know you can have sub-folders in the AlienStream
folder and these are displayed in a hierarchical menu from the top
level menu.

Sure, just a thought. Not worth pursuing if it's difficult.

That sounds useful.

Yes, it would be sensible.

How do you do it from the Web interface?

>or using the SavePlaylist.pm plugin.


OK, I hadn't turned that on, as up to now I had no need of it.

Thanks.

right side of the web interface (default skin) below the 'now playing' section,
you shoudl see "current playlist: save | download | clear"

the 'save' link will only be present if you have a writable playlist folder set
in server settings.

Something odd is definitely happening, then. I'm playing some music,
and a playlist is showing. But I only have Download and Clear, no
Save.

SlimServer 6.0, Mac OS 10.3.8.

I think I can see the problem. *I* have write access to the playlists
folder - it is in ~/Music/Playlists and my SlimServer is in
~/Library?prefPanes. But 'group' and 'other' only have read access.

I've tried changing to allow write access to all. There's no
difference, Save still does not appear,even after I stopped and
restarted SlimServer.

Also, if I am on the Squeezebox, and use a method of saving the
playlist, it comes up with "save playlist as:" for me to enter a name
for the playlist. But how is this confirmed?

if you type in a filename, and press right, I believe it then says "press right
again to save". when you press right again, it will show a message saying it
is saving. Then you should see that playlist when you Browse Playlists from
the web or the player ui.

Got it!!! The first time one presses Right, the file name just has a
right arrow appended to it. The second time one presses Right,you
then get "press right to save", and the third time saves it.

*NOT* intuitive, and not explained in the manual.
