No way to play a playlist?

Is there really no way to directly load and play a (local) playlist using the JSON-RPC (or any other HTTP) API?

Current workarounds seem to be:

  • Use the load command of the MPD frontend
  • Fetch the whole contents of the playlist to the client and add the tracks again one by one to the tracklist
  • Iris uses a method called add_queue_metadata, but it will also make one call per track in the playlist

Anything I’ve missed?
