intunes playist not showing on soundbridge

Thu Nov 13, 2008 5:09 pm

HI

Firstly, I am new to all this stuff so a lot of the stuff I have been researchng I don't really understand.

Anyway, I am having trouble with firefly reconginsing my itunes playlists.

My itunes library file resides in c:/music however the songs are located at D:\itunes.

When I installed firefly I pointed it to c:/music, when firefly starts up it finds all my songs no problem, however, when I go into playlists on the soundbridge it has no playlists.

the firefly log says;

2008-11-14 08:50:30 (c3704bad): Full reload...
2008-11-14 08:50:30 (c3704bad): Starting mp3 scan
2008-11-14 08:50:30 (c3704bad): Starting playlist scan
2008-11-14 08:51:52 (c3704bad): Error parsing playlist: Offset 1: Expecting field name
2008-11-14 08:51:52 (c3704bad): Playlist 3330112 bad syntax

Can anybody advise me what it is I'm doing wrong?

From (one of) the Firefly FAQ's

Why can't I see my iTunes playlists?
Firefly picks up the iTunes playlists by reading the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file that iTunes stores playlist information in. In order to be able to find the iTunes playlist, Firefly must be able to find this file somewhere in its search path. In practice, this means adding the "My Music" folder (in Windows) or the "Music" folder (on Mac) as one of the Music Folders in the web configuration tool.

There is also a configuration entry that controls whether or not Firefly should even try and build playlists from the iTunes file. That configuration options is the option called "Process .m3u files". It's a poorly named configuration value, as that value also controls whether or not Firefly tries to build playlists from iTunes files. Check to be sure that is still set to "Yes" in the web configuration tool.

As blue_94_trooper suggests, make sure in the config file you have process .m3u files set to yes and also Process iTunes files & Process Playlists all set to yes.

I'd also suggest upgrading from 1359 to 1586 which may help to iron out any problems.

http://nightlies.fireflymediaserver.org/version.php?version=svn-1586
G5, OS X 10.5.8, 3 x M1000, iTunes 10.4, slimserver 6.2.1/alienbbc (now redundant), firefly svn 1586, uNSLUng 6.8

Firefly is finding the playlist but it's not liking the contents.

As andyg has suggested, upgrade to a newer version first.

You will also need to enter TWO library locations in Firefly's configuration.
c:\music so Firefly can find your playlists
& d:\iTunes so it can find the music files
2 x M2000's
Infrant ReadyNAS NV+ with Firefly svn-1676
NSLU2, 500GB Maxtor One Touch III, uNSLUng 6.8, Firefly svn-1696
music library in FLAC format
