Good idea. Although I do have some playlists that sample from multiple folders. I guess I could add a copy of the playlist to each though. I think your theory is a good one. I’ll test it out when I get home tonight. Once again, thanks for responding.
Hi @mike, thanks for the followup. the playlists are in the same root folder, albeit in a separate subfolder. do they need to be in the same subfolder? i could move them i suppose, but that has the potential to upset how LMS sees the playlists and maps the various tracks.
woodford, is your file structure still as you originally posted?
If so, it looks to me like Music and Playlists might be two separate root folders, on computer Music. If so, it’s the same exact scenario as this post. If I’m right, try making a new folder called playlists in Music/Music, then copy all your playlists from wherever they are on Music/Playlists into this new folder. Then exit & re-enter Roon.
Hey @woodford – how are the directories added to Roon?
It doesn’t actually matter whether they’re in the same folder – it matters that they are in the same watched folder, as we can’t import playlist content that spans two different watched folders.
So the real question is whether you’re watching the root of the drive, the root music folder, or two separate watched folders (one for music, one for the playlists)? I think you’ll be ok if you watch the Music folder.
