Hi!

I have created a playlist with a few radiostations.

Is it possible to make it show upp under Internet Radio like Slim Devices Pick do?

Best Regards

Bernt,
That would be very tricky.
A playlist is not the same as an internet radio plugin, which is what
SlimDevices' Picks is.

You can see the playlist OK under the playlists menu though?

Yes, the playlist show up and works. Just want to do it more wife friendly. ;)

It would be nice if you could add a named playlist to a player menu
though.
I wonder if anyone's working on this?

I think maybe you could do this with a plugin that disguised a playlist
as a radio plugin....
Hmmm....

It was a quiet afternoon, so I spent ages working on this before realising it's exactly the same as the iTunes Podcasts menu!

So here's a new 'RadioPlaylist' Plugin to download from www.jamescraig.co.uk/SlimServer

It lets you choose a playlist to be displayed in the Internet Radio menu.

Let me know what you think

Wow, this is great. Thanks!

But then I download the plugin and save it to the pluginfolder and restart Slimserver the server don't start again.
If I remove the plugin the server starts.

Do I need to install something else to make it work.

Running Slimserver 6.1.2 on Windows XP SP2.

No you shouldn't!
(I did test this on 2 different installations but not thoroughly enough
it would seem!)

Can you start the server with the "--d_plugins" option and see what
comes up in the log?

Ooops.
This is only going to work on 6.2 onwards.
I forgot playlists are not in the database in 6.1!

I'll see how tricky it would be to get it to work on 6.1 - might not be
possible.
I can't really recommend you upgrade for this alone because I am finding
the playlists a bit flakey in 6.2.

Ok, thanks for a great plugin. The only playlist I use is the one with Radiostation in, so maybe I give 6.2 a try.

Thanks again.

Just installed 6.2 and the Radioplaylist plugin.
Works great. Thanks. :-)
