Changed my mind about the m3u thing. But I MIGHT do that. I am sounding a bit undecided on things right now but thats because I haven't been at a computer for 4 days and will be going on another 1 week trip Friday. So, I will try to keep everyone informed.

    Gee I dont know if MySQL is such a good idea ... It'll cost you some heavy resoruces.

    just my 2 canadian cents.

    as always,

    For all you guys that want to use a SQL backend, I recommend using SQLite: http://www.sqlite.org/

    It is embedded (i.e. there is no separate process running in the background), it is tiny (~200KB), it is fast (faster than MySQL in almost every operation, except for database creation), and it is open source. What else could you want?
