Hi

I'd like to set up my SqueezeBox / SlimServer such that when I choose Browse Music, I can create custom browse categories. For example, In addition to Browse Artists, Browse Albums, etc, I'd like to add one for Live Music. All of my live albums are tagged such that the word "(Live)" appears at the end of the album name name. Can I create a custom filter and make it appear under "Browse Music" that retrieves only live albums based on album name? Can I do a similar one for compilations based on text in the comment field?

Not as far as I know, although this enhancement request http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2700 might give you want you want.

There's a plugin around which should allow to do this.

I haven't tested it yet, but from what the author says it should allow for
"smart" playlists based on SQL requests.
