Full documentation notes can be found at the PDF Manual.


.fpl playlists (native format) are read only and can not be auto-saved since the format is closed source and there are no methods on Spider Monkey Panel to save them on a path (without showing the 'save as' window), neither load them as handle lists.

Tracking playlists within a network drive requires additional steps to make use of the Recycle Bin. See Readme (pdf).
