Creating & Saving Playlists

How?

I must be (even more) dof than  :angrywife: tells me I am.

I use a NAS with music stored on it in folders. Artist name & name of album, track number & track title in the aforementioned folder.

The aforementioned folders are also duplicated on my desktop PC so I can use iTunes.

FLAC files on the NAS, ALAC files on the PC for iTunes.

To create a playlist (or many different ones) in iTunes is easy. Create the playlist, give it a name & simply drag & drop tracks into the playlist. To listen to the playlist I just select it & press play. Transferring it to my phone is also easy, & it is then used for background listening on a BT speaker. Simplicity in itself.



The network streamer is a Cambridge Audio NP30. Works well for internet radio, and plays the files from the NAS perfectly well too.

BUT

I cannot create & SAVE a playlist on it. Which is daft. It means I have to create a playlist every. single. time. I. want. to. listen to files on the NAS.

Creation is easy enough, but there is zero option to save it. To recreate a playlist of say 100 tracks takes far too long & is a royal PITA.

So, anyone know how to do so? Google-Fu is zero help. It also seems, from my Google searches, that this is the norm with most network streamers?

Just walk to the rack and pick an LP.

Are you using their Stream Magic app to interact with the streamer?

Yes. It allows for the easy creation of a playlist, but there is no option to save it.

I don't use StreamMagic but found this on their support site which might work for you:
