yup, exactly. it’s made to be entered from the web interface rather than directly. I’ve been convinced by others that this is a misfeature, so it will probably come back *out* of the database at some point (although still preference for editing via the web).
You can enter new smart playlists from the “smart” tab on the web interface.
Is there any documentation that I could access on the language for the smart playlists?
Ya. it’s very close to the old syntax, but details are here.
If you were to digest that and turn it into a nice html-ey help page that I could link into the smart playlist page, that would be groovy. plus, you’d be famous.
