    It's probably not an RRMedia issue. If you are making playlists and they are not showing up, you should open RRConfig, go to page 1 of the music settings and (i) make sure the Playlist Path contains a valid folder and (ii) make sure ".m3u" (no quotes) is contained in the audio file types box.

    If you have it working in dfx, then you should also be able to see them when you go to the demo's playlists screen.

    If i am understanding correctly, the reason is because that the demo skin is just that, for demo of the plugin's features, not std rr cmd/features. The demo skin only has the minium buttons/cmds to do show it, and editing/creating lists are able to be done via RR cmds.

    one more thing what is the SmartPlayLists stuff in dfx skin do i need it
    what i am trying to do is make a basic skin with just music, video, phone and games. I have hacked up the alpine green skin and changed all the images to how i want them to look i have all the game stuff working the way i want, but i was having troubles with the music side of things, could not seem to create and edit and save playlist so i started hunting thats when i found rrmedia db and have been trying to wrap my head around how it all works so i can use it in my skin, am i using something thats to in depth for the basic playlist functions that i want or is rrmedia the only way of doing these things as you may tell my programming skills arn't real great so any help would be greatly appriecated.

    Would depend on two thing sorta... If your planning on having a ton of music in the car, using rrmedia helps by being able to quickly find/search for what your looking for along with all of its other featrues. On the flip side, if your only going to have a smaller amount of music, then it may be on the overkill side.

    The smartplaylists is kinda like rrmedia but deals with the winamp library, as its a winamp plugin not rr, but it can be used in rr.
