Reply To: Playlist by Path


The last one should work.

Right now, the smart playlist stuff isn’t very friendly. A bad playlist will crash the thing, and it doesn’t give any kind of error messages or warnings about whats wrong, etc.

That’s the target of the database re-write this weekend — to help fix some of those problems.

WRT your specific problem, I just added on like this:

path includes “/Morrissey”

and that seems to work okay. You might want to start up the server and delete any questionable smart playlists using the web interface before you connect — otherwise, it will crash the server. Then try adding it again, and seeing what that does.

Otherwise, give me a week or so, and we’ll see if I can get something less error prone done.
