    How to Create Playlists without iTunes

    We are moving all of our media off our iMac and onto our new ReadyNAS NV we purchased through Slim Devices' promotion.

    How will I create playlists now that Slim Server isn't using iTunes as its source, it is just scanning the music folder?

    Creating and Saving a Playlist
    You can use the remote control or the web interface to create playlists and
    save them for later. Before you create and save a playlist, make sure you
    have specified a folder for Squeezebox to use for saving playlists.

    To specify a playlists folder:
    1. From the web interface, click the Server Settings link.
    2. In the Playlists Folder section, enter the path to the folder on your
    hard drive that you want Squeezebox to use for saving playlists, and
    click Change.

    To create a playlist using the web interface:
    1. Search or browse through your music library for music you want to
    put in the playlist.
    2. When you locate a song, album, artist or genre you want to put in
    the playlist, click the plus (+) sign next to it. It is added to the current
    Now Playing playlist.
    3. To change the order of the tracks in the playlist, use the up and down
    arrows to move tracks up and down the list.
    4. To save the playlist, click the SAVE button at the top of the current
    playlist, on the right half of the page. The new playlist should
    appear on the left side of the page. Enter the name you want to give
    this playlist and click Save. The playlist is saved to the folder you
    specified. To find it again, use the Browse Playlists feature.

    To create a playlist using the remote control:
    1. Search or browse through your music library for music you want to
    put in the playlist.
    2. When you locate a song, album, artist or genre you want to put inthe playlist, press ADD. It is added to the Now Playing playlist.
    3. To save the playlist, press NOW PLAYING and then press and hold
    PLAY on the remote. Using the remote keypad, enter the name you
    want to give this playlist and press the right arrow.
    4. The playlist is saved. To find it again, use Browse Playlists.

    Thank you for pointing me to that. I am doing it now and am frustrated that many of the albums I added have been added twice to the playlist so I have to go back and remove track by track. :-(
