Full Version: Separate ‘folder’ just for Radio streams

Hi, I’ve amassed quite a few m3u playlists, some of which relate to content in my own collection, while others are for radio streams. At the moment all of these playlists are presented in the ‘Playlist’ folder and it can take a bit of time to literally scroll through to find one that I would like to play. Hence, I was wondering if its possible to configure MinimServer so that it effectively presents two playlist folders, with one specifically devised for containing radio streams?

Two possible work arounds.

1) create a Radio playlist .m3u file containing all of your radio station details. Named appropriately, this could appear at the top of the Playlist index list.

2) create a Radio playlist folder, on your pc/mac/nas, to contain all of your radio station .m3u files, and use the [folder view] index to select this folder.

Many thanks - good suggestions. I'm particularly taken by the second option..
