View Full Version : Lost Album Artwork

You know, since changing over to a new computer I have
had a few nagging problems which have yet to be
resolved:

iTunes:
- Under iTunes part of server settings why can't I
remove info I previously put under "iTunes Music
Library.xml Location" and "iTunes Music Folder". I
want it to find iTunes automatically but I can't get
rid of the manual stuff.

Playlists:
I can't get the iTunes playlists to be shown on
Slimserver. The only playlist is the Shoutcast stuff.

Artwork:
As I previously said below, I can't get the browse by
artwork to work even though it the artwork shows up in
the album detail on slimserver.

I am using 5.2.1 with win 2k pro

just select find automatically, and the manual entry values no longer matter.

I am not sure why you can't remove the artwork folder setting with 5.2.1. It
allows it just fine with the latest nightlies.
