    Using external playlists in slimserver

    Hi.

    I am wondering if it is possible to use an external program (such as amarok), to create a playlist that slimserver will recognize.

    I have slimserver setup to use the directory /music/playlists for playlists, but playlists I created with amarok appear as empty within slimserver. The playlists are listed (the m3u files are in that directory), but slimserver doesn't show any songs associtated with them.

    For reference:
    server:
    os: ubuntu linux (dapper)
    SlimServer Version: 6.5.0 - 9916 - Debian - EN - iso-8859-1
    music path: /music, /music/playlists
    desktop:
    os: kubuntu linux (dapper)
    music path: /media/music, /media/music/playlists

    any help appreciated.

    thanks,
    johnl

    you know what....I tried something a few hours after I posted this.

    If I open the amarok playlist, and replace "/media/music/" with "/music/" slimserver recognizes the playlist.

    Probably should'a thought about that before posting...but it was late & I was tired.

    Not a perfect solution, but it's much easier than trying to manage a huge playlist with the web interface.
