    Playlists (m3u) imports

    I am testing the free Asset UPnP on a WHS 2011 server. The audio library has 4 folders; the first three have music files with the album art; the fourth has playlists some of which are in the root directory, and some are in sub-folders.

    But none of the playlists appear in the Playlists folder of the StreamMagic app for Asset UPnP:MB... (my server).

    I've deleted that 4th item in the Audio Library of the Advanced Settings; and then recreated it. But it has not resolved my problem.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks!

    You have set the 4th folder to a 'contains playlist' item?

    OK, my mistake as I did not know that you had to flag the folder differently.

    New issue: When I execute a playlist, there is no Album Art, contrary to elsewhere in the Play modes: Album, Artist, etc. Please note that my Album Art reside in the track folder as a "folder.jpg" file.

    Is it fixable? My review of the Advanced Settings has been fruitless.

    Thanks!

    No album art for a the playlist? or items in the playlist?

    Both. In the initial list, only a folder pictogram shows - but that's OK. Once I select a given playlist (in the StreamMagic app), a list of all tracks appears, all tracks are accompanied by an individual pictogram of a double music note. If I play the list, the same double-note pictogram is used by the player in the bottom right corner.

    For album art to be detected these files have to appear in Asset (ie they are scanned by asset and can be browsed through artist / album)
