Smart playlist not updating
I have resolved to copying the songs that are in the smart playlist to a regular playlist to get the playlist onto the i Phone. I had the same problem with songs duplicating on my i Phone from smart lists.I fixed it by going into the smart list criteria and un-checking the box titled "Live Updating".Just navigate to the current folder where your music is on your computer.Once you select the path, it should ask if you want to complete this task for all your songs. Smart playlists are nothing more than a folder which searches your entire i Tunes library.Select "yes" or "ok" (I can't remember which one exactly). For example, say you have a smart playlist for pop songs: the playlist shows you only the songs for that search term.The smart playlist isn't a playlist, it's just a search folder. So, you cannot sync a search token to your i Phone.OK a bit more detail, I’ve determined it’s not the playlists that are not updating, since they are working fine on some of my devices/platforms.
My playlist is still not visually reflecting any changes when i rate new tracks, but the total playtime of the list is updated so behind the scenes some part of Plex is aware that the list is changing.then I updated the lists on my phone - all the duplicates were removed. Turns out i Tunes lost the path between the playlists and my music folder location on my computer.If you go to the i Tunes "Library" box on the left, select "Music" then go to the main screen and look at all of your songs in the "Songs" format.A problem started with a smart playlist and I'm not sure how/what to approach fixing it beyond what I've tried. Setup: Mac Mini running Snow Leopard and i Tunes 10.No add-ons, and the Mini is a pretty barebones install as an HTPC - only other program installed is Firefox. Not jailbroken and no music/audio related apps (like equalizers).
