Hi atiras,

Do you mean you want to let UPnP sever scan your audio content which store on the NAS?
or could you please provide more information why you want to look for audio playlists in UPnP server.

UPnP server scans my music collection well, and makes the albums/tracks visible to by DLNA compatible clients.

However, I have a number of audio playlists (in .wpl format but I can convert to.m3u format if necessary) developed over many years which I am refuse to lose access to -- anyone else with an extensive music collection would probably feel the same. They're currently served beautifully by Twonky running on a Linkstation NAS (and prior to that on a Maxtor NAS). But Twonky isn't available on the Asustor and I cannot find any of the media server options that are available that will render playlists visible to my Sony Bravia Tv/AV system or my Roku Soundbridge.

Hi Steve

I have the same problem with playlists as atiras.

My DLNA client on my ipad shows albums, albums/artists, artists, folders and genres. They are like my iTunes audio library, but no playlists only a blank page ?

Those who have made UPnP Media Server V2, must know what the reason is for that ! ??.

You can export playlists in various formats from iTunes to the NAS, but where should they be copied over and in what format ??

The app SoundGoods can create playlists and I can see these playlists in AiMusic on my ipad air. Where are these playlist hidden ??

kind regards
Ivan Rasmussen

MiniDLNA will do server side playlists - just as an FYI
