View Full Version : Removing 'iTunes" prefix from playlists

I have all my playlists set up on Windows XP iTunes. I use the large type on
the squeezebox display, viewable across the room. The iTunes playlists are
working very well though there is added text I'd like to eliminate.

I want to remove the "iTunes:" prefix since it obscures half of the play list
name while scrolling through the playlist names displayed in large text.

I see there is a slimserver.pref parameter

iTunesplaylistprefix = iTunes:

I would like to know how I can either eliminate the prefix or reduce it to a
single charactor. I tried changing the parameter to

iTunesplaylistprefix =

it did not change the prefix. Can the prefix be changed or eliminated? Where
can I find any documentation on modifying parameters (I searched before
asking, could not find anything).

Thanks for your help!

Hi Michael,

Three things:
1. Update to the latest nightly release, available here:

http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest

2. Go to Server Settings -> Additional Server Settings -> iTunes and
change the "iTunes Playlist Format" to use whatever prefix you want.

3. Go to Server Settings -> Additional Server Settings -> Performance
and click "Wipe Cache" to make sure that the old names are wiped from
our persistent cache.
