Is there a way to import my iTunes playlists into the Slim Server?

My library is too large to run from iTunes, so I am running it directly from
the folder, but I would like to have access to my playlists.

Thanks, in advance.

You don't specify whether you're on a Mac or Windows. If it's Mac, you
can use AppleScript. I've attached the script I use to export tracks of
a specific single iTunes playlist to a specific single .m3u format
playlist. Put it in ~/Library/iTunes/Scripts so you can run it from
iTunes's Scripts menu, edit the parameters as instructed in the script
comments and you can edit and save individual copies of the script for
each playlist to export.

I've got over 20,000 tracks and my playlists work just fine on Slim. I
use my iTunes library to manage all my music and slim to play on remote
computers and on my stereo.
