Hi Tony,
With pms-mlx the concept is a bit different than with pms; the web folder is not automatically added, you have to add it yourself where you want it to be. For this navigate to the Media Library Tab and select the Tree view (which represents the files and folders how they'll be displayed on the renderer). There you can right-click on any folder and choose add Web folder from the context menu. A dialogue will open asking for the web.config file path to use. The advantage of having a web.conf for each folder lets you add multiple web folders with different configurations.
Hope it clarifies the functionality :)
If you always wanted to have your most recent videos at the top of the folder in the ps3 or wished you could group all videos with the same genre in one folder, have a look at pms-mlx

Thanks!. That worked great. Now I need to figure out why none of the transcoding for files in WEB.CONF, and the transcoding for SPOTIFY work... Same issue as I have with the 1.90.1. I thought it would go away.

No surprise there, it uses exactly the same code :) I've never used web stuff so I'm unable to help you out there, sorry.

No worries, thanks. you got me moving in the right direction. I think it was working out of the box, i just needed to set transcoding and it worked on PS3 and Sony BDP520. I played SPOTIFY on both.
Appreciate your help!

Hey taconaut,

I first wanted to say that I finally got around to using the latest version of pms-mlx (your latest snapshot to be exact) and things are working perfectly. I really do appreciate the time you put into this! I've been using your build for years now and could't live without it.

I was curious about something though and it's probably more specific to the core of PMS, but I'll ask anyway. Is it possible for the XML playlists in WEB.conf to get reloaded? Or more generally, any of the config files? Right now, I have to restart PMS to make it reload WEB.conf. Is it possible for the configs to be reloaded without a restart? And if it isn't currently so, could such a feature be added? :D

Thanks!

Hi killa339,

Thanks for the heads up, it's always nice to see the effort was worth it :) As this version has been working fine for me as well for quite some time, I left it as it is for quite a long time.

It would be possible to implement the reloading for web folders. Currently, the implementation is exactly the same as in pms. This would have to be changed to be a bit smarter.
