Quick delete of 100+ playlists

Post by Pietercape » Sat Feb 02, 2019 6:38 pm

I have 100+ items (playlists) and want to permanently delete all the playlist listings, not the music, just the playlist entries. In other words I want to to have zero playlist entries listed under "Playlists" in the tree. To delete each entry individually is tedious as each delete needs a "Remove" followed by a confirmation that I wish to delete this playlist.
I searched for the location of the playlist data but with no success, I assume it is located in the MM.DB?

I have searched the forum but most subjects concerning playlist deletions relate to syncing issues. Does anyone know how to do this?

Playlists are in the database. Deletion is per Playlist, however if you move them as a Child Playlist you can remove the Parent Playlist and this includes the Child Playlists. With the confirmation once this likely ends up being faster.
