Hide (some) playlists from streaming devices.

Ideas for new feature requests for iHomeServer

Hide (some) playlists from streaming devices.

Postby andre.heisig » Fri Aug 07, 2015 12:55 pm

Hi there.

Any chance to hide itunes playlists from DLNA devices?

I have many playlists for "data maintenance" purposes (tracks without cover, without genre, and so on). As much as i use them in itunes, i don't need to see them in any of my streaming devices. Any checkbox or something to hide them would be a great feature.

Greetings!

ok - thanks for the feature request.

Currently this isn't available in iHomeServer but we may add it in the future. Would you be ok with a feature to ignore playlists that begin with a special character, eg an underscore '_' or would that not work for you? We could implement that v quickly.

Let me know :)

That would be absolutly great. Can't wait for it ... :-)

Is this going to work with Folder to, or just with Playlists? (If you organize your PLs in itunes by folders, not only the PLs but that folders to are all visible in streaming devices. So being able to hiding them also would match the same "problem").

Thanks a lot for the quick response! :-)

Intended to work with the .82 release?

Maybe i do something wrong, but "_" seems to hide nothing; not folders, not playlists.

Hiya - please try it out on the 3.1.84.0 release available now.

iHomeServer will now hide playlists that begin with an underscore. You may need to hit 'Refresh' on the iTunes View tab if you rename any folders whilst iTunes is already running for the changes to take affect.

Please let us know how you get on
