iTunes Media Wrangling with Smart Playlists

by volve on Nov.29, 2006, under media storage, software

UPDATE: It appears, at least in iTunes 7.0.2 that isntead of creating some big, cumbersome playlist with lots of “is not” entries as mentioned in the first link below, you can simple do “Playlist, is, Music” or “Playlist, is, TV Shows” – yay!

iTunes has some awesome features, but some odd deficiencies.

One such is the inability to build a Smart Playlist that contains ONLY music, or ONLY TV shows for example.

Although a handy solution is within your grasp. A useful feature of these Smart Playlists is to read OTHER playlists, so basically you create a big ol’ big list that excludes -for example- all TV, Movies, Podcasts, etc. then include that in your Music-only playlists going forward.

A handy guide explaining the aformentioned music-only base playlist:

Good luck and god speed!
