Currently I have experienced a few rather limiting functions of the playlist system that I think could use some improving:

 

Problems:

  1. There is no access control
    1. If a user has access to playlists they can see, edit, and create playlists system wide.
    2. Users cannot have their own private playlists
  2. A user with no access granted to playlists can still add media to any playlist in the system, even though they cannot actually browser playlists. (this is probably a bug)
  3. Attempting to click into an item in a playlist starts playback immediately rather than jump to it's info screen.

Feature Requests:

  1. Playlists should only be visible to the playlist creator by default.
  2. Admins should be able to define expanded access to individual playlists.
  3. Playlist objects should have an option to "view object", if not just the default behavior.
  4. Grouping of TV show objects would be nice to ease viewing large playlists. (I mostly see users create playlists to lump a bunch of TV shows together that they can just hit shuffle on)

Hi there, yes this is great feedback. We are still working on improving playlists, and access control is a major area of need for them.

Excellent, glad to hear it. I couldn't find much else posted with the same concerns...

Same can be said for recordings. Also give admins ability to cancel recordings set by users and be able to tell which user is recording
