So it sounds like SavePlaylist is good, Web interface is not?

Odd. The plugin works, but the web interface doesn't. Does
the users your web server is running under have write
capabilities to that directory?

Agreed. I got confused by that as well the first few times.
I'm not sure how it could be made better however.

Should be no problem. I am running as the same user every time, and
as I have said I adjusted permissions so that User, Group, and Other
all had both Read and Write abilities.

Sometimes it's not a matter of changing the program, it's just that
the information needs to be there somewhere. Many people don't read
manuals, but I do. When basic info like that isn't in the manual
(either printed, or via the Web access FAQs and other info) I get
annoyed. I should have been able to find out what I wanted without
having to ask on the list.
