Hi all, I'm new here and my english is not good at all... so sorry :)
I'm a happy owner of a brand new Squeezebox3...I have searched around in this forum to find a solution but I haven't found it so I ask you:

I don't know how to manage playlists using the remote control:
1. How can I rename a playlist with the remote ?
2. How can I add a song to an existing playlist with the remote?
3. How can I delete a playlist with the remote ?

If those operations are not possible with the standard slimserver installation... is there a plugin to manage playlist more efficiently ?

Thanks a lot for reading me

Bye

There is a save playlist plugin (official slimdevices plugin).

I have written a third-party plugin to enhance playlist management (Playlist Manager - http://www.hergest.demon.co.uk/Music/slim/PlaylistManPlugin.htm). The latest version on my website is an old version that I wrote pre slimserver v6.3. I think it works with 6.3, but I upgraded and changed the plugin for v6.5. I will release this when 6.5 is official.

>1. How can I rename a playlist with the remote ?
>3. How can I delete a playlist with the remote ?
There's no way to rename/delete a playlist using the remote yet. I would use a PDA to access the Web UI for this action (although it doesn't affect my immediate listening habbits, so I'd usually wait until I was back on the desktop PC).

You can load a playlist and then save it with a new name (to make a copy).

>2. How can I add a song to an existing playlist with the remote?
Using Playlist Manager plugin, navigate to a song in the now playing list and press and hold the Add button. You will then see options to add the song to pre-configured playlists (someone else published an enhanced version of my plugin that allowed any playlist to be selected - this feature and more will be in the new version).

Phil,
Is a beta version of your enhanced plugin already available for testing?

I have decided to add version 2.0 to my plugin website. Note this new version works only on slimserver v6.5 or greater. Get it from here:

Please let me know how you get on with it.
