iTunes was recently updated to support podcasts. So, I upgraded to iTunes 4.9(17) on OS X and junked IPodder in an attempt to simplify my software setup. iTunes maintains a playlist called "Podcasts" which contains all the downloaded tracks. It works fine. But, iTunes also creates a separate playlist for each downloaded track. That would not be so bad, but in addition to creating a lot of playlist clutter to scroll through, these playlists do not display properly. They have the "itunesplaylist:" prefix and use percent escaping for space characters and so on. For example, "itunesplaylist:Air%20Talk%20from%20KPCC 20893". I did a cache wipe and rescan and they are still there. I'm using SlimServer 6.0.2 - 3085. Any suggestions? I normally avoid using the betas, but would that be a solution?

well, I haven't seen anything like what you describe. I'm using the latest
nightly. The podcast plugin is made available as a link on the home page. The
individual tracks are only listed within that playlist.

Thanks for the info. I finally got around to upgrading to SlimServer 6.1.1 and the problem went away.
