Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Command line arguments to start automatic playlist

I don't think you can play a playlist that's inside RB from the command line. You could, however, try exporting the automatic one to a file, and then telling it to play that from the command line, I think.

I wouldn't like that solution, but I think that's the best you can do.

I don't like that solution much either - the whole point of the automatic playlists I want to use is that they are dynamic.

afaik, you would be better off, using the rhythmbox-client console program to control a running instance of RB. The output of "rhythmbox-client --help" contains an option to play a specific URI, but I don't know if there exists a format or what the format of an RB playlist URI would be. maybe a dev can comment on that?!

I don't think I had heard of rhythmbox-client before. Unless as you suggest the user's playlists can be address by a custom URI, that won't do it either.

Thanks anyway guys.
