How to create smart playlists in iTunes

Thanks for the great article.  I’ve used iTunes for awhile, but didn’t know much about the smart playlists.

A look at the iPod mini

I already ordered one (pink) for my wife’s Valentine’s Day gift - those things are sweet!
And, I gotta tell ya, I’ll likely order one for myself - the style, quality, and size rock.
They will sell, but they will sell more once the drives grow and/or the price drops.

A look at the iPod mini

One of the news items here linked to a story that mentioned the “two buttons at the same time” question.  Apparently it is possible to press two buttons on opposite sides of the scroll wheel at the same time, which can reset the mini, and then pressing two different buttons directs you to a diagnostic menu where you can select a variety of options (including firewire disk mode, I imagine).

A look at the iPod mini

I have way too much music for a minipod… however I hope that the anodised finish and the new click wheel make it to the next gen of ipods.

i really wonder how you would manage to reset it or force it into firewire mode since it seems wuite difficult to press two buttons at the same time?!

A look at the iPod mini

The article should be corrected to say the mini iPod is 2.0” wide, not 2.9”.  I kept looking at the picture thinking there’s no way that thing is 2.9” wide unless it’s some weird angle!  After pulling out my credit card and realizing the mini is even smaller than that, I’m really thinking about getting one.

A look at the iPod mini

I really love the new click wheel! I think it’s a great step forward in the ipod’s evolution, and the silver aluminum finish is perfect… not all to intersted in the colors, but hey my personal taste is but a portion of all consumers. It’s on my list of things to get!

The .mp3 files that Griffin gives you to put on your iPod, for the purpose of selecting an FM frequency to transmit on.

So…. Gorgeous.

I really hope the 4G full-size iPods have the same anodized aluminum finish/style with the new scroll wheel as well.  I love the construction of the new mini, and when I see a full-size version of the iPod with the construction of the mini and 40+GB capacity, I’ll purchase it immediately.  :-D

What’s an iTrip Clip?

Jody—

You can also exclude the iTrip clips from ALL of your smart playlists by “un-checking” them, and setting all of your smart playlists to “Only Match Selected Songs.”

This is how I exclude my Christmas songs and iTrip tracks.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

Anyone else notice when you play your songs on random over an iTrip, every once in awhile, you will accidentally play the iTrip bleeps.  haha.  To fix this I made a smart playlist to include all my music except those annoying bleeps.  Use the following criteria to do this: < artist < does not contain < Griffin Technology.  I named it Overall Playlist!  Now if I want my ipod to play songs at random I just use the Overall Playlist!!!  Voila, no more blips and bleeps over my car radio!!!

Criteria can be combined with AND or OR boolean operators : when you have 2 or more criteria, a box appear at the top near “match the following condition” where you can choose how to combine.

True that you can’t mix AND and OR, but to me, that would be useless and harmful to the clarity of this wonderfull user interface

Hey… I plugged it in my own article!  :-D Very last sentence.

First Looks: iTrip, iPod Armor & FlipStand

I have the iTrip and am not pleased with it. I use it in my car and get lots of static. There are very few open frequencies and I’ve tried almost everyone with the same results.

Not sure if it is OK to plug other sites, but http://smartplaylists.com/ has a lot of suggestions.  I have no affiliation.

My favorite playlist is: Last Played is not in the last 14 days.  I called this Freshen up because it means I have not heard the song for awhile (at least 2 weeks!).  Good way to cycle through your songs.

Anyone create any clever smart playlists?

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

Ahh… Nice find.  Thanks.  I’ll have Dennis correct that.

You can right click on any iTunes playlist and select “Export Song List…” to create a text file playlist.  Unfortunately, I’m not aware of any way to import that file into MMJB.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

Jerrod,

Great article, very informative.  Wondering, though, if perhaps this is a typo:

““Live Updating,” when checked, allows iTunes to constantly add to or remove from your Smart Playlist as songs are added or removed from your Library. If you want to “freeze” your Smart Playlists in time, select this.”

Did you mean to say “if you want to “freeze” your Smart Playlists in time, UN-select this”?

Also - quick sort-of related question.  Playlists that are created in iTunes - can they be used in Musicmatch?  I know it works the other way around, but I can’t seem to figure out how to access iTunes playlists in MMJB.

Thanks!

Cheryl
