I’ve hadn’t looked into setting up playlists until now, but after a few failed attempts with Smart Playlists I am rather confused.
I was able to queue a folder on the fs with music files in it, select ‘current playlist’ and save it. However, when I went to Playlists and selected New Smart Playlist with a filter for songs in path /home/osmc/Music/foo/ the playlist appears to be created once I set a name for it, but it is and remains empty. I tried update library and what not, but I’m unable to see the contents of the playlist - it is empty - or play any songs from it.
I’ve read http://kodi.wiki/view/Smart_playlists but I may be missing some basic steps to get this going.
This is the contents of my test playlist:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?> Christmas all /home/osmc/Music/Christmas/ title
Grateful for any advice to get this working.
