Adding the new default autoplaylists to an existing Library

I have two options:
- Update the DB manually, but haven't studied which parts to update.
- Copy the used DB to the normal location. Run 2.1 RC 1 installer. Move DB back to it's network location.

Let me know how I actually should go to work.
Currently, there's no way to add autoplaylists from one DB to another. i.e. the autoplaylists that are included in the default database cannot be migrated. If anyone wants to use them, they'd have to delete any existing DB, install MM from scratch, and then rescan their collection. This is a moot issue for Gold users, since the default autoplaylists can easily be created by them. However, for someone who doesn't have the Gold license, the default autoplaylists are a nice bonus.

Sorry to hear that, it would have been nice if it was updatable.

The Autoplaylists

Post by scherer43 »

I have a gold version and do not want to reinstall MM, just out of curiosity do the new playlists involve. This way I can create them myself if I like the idea behind them. Thanks for the info.

I mean to ask what the new playlist involves, what kind of criteria, sort order, that type of stuff. Sorry.
