    itunes playlists empty in slimserver

    hi - can anyone shed some light on this - i've seen similar issues in
    the archives but nothing that helps:

    my itunes playlists are empty in the slimserver web UI and squeezebox
    UI. they exist in itunes, the slimserver itunes option is on and the
    correct folder set, i've rescanned... but nothing is showing up.
    SlimServer Version: 5.2.1 on XP Pro SP1.

    thanks
    ben

    itunes playlists empty in slimserver

    To make that work, I had to store my music in the standard location
    (~/Music/iTunes). When I had it someplace else, iTunes worked, but
    slimserver did not find the playlists.

    server settings->additional server settings->debugging
    check d_itunes
    click change
    click on the link at the top for the log, or point your browser here:
    http://serverIP:9000/log.txt
    (serverIP is the ip address of your slim server pc)

    then go back to serer settings
    click rescan
    refresh the log window or wait for it to refresh in 30s. Follow the log as it
    shows results of the scan. It should show you that its found the xml file
    properly, and that its parsing playlists.

    You can still see songs due to the folder scan since you have a music folder
    set. The log will hopefully give you an idea why its not seeing the proper
    iTunes information.
