Playlists in iTunes
There are two playlists in iTunes: Simple Playlists and Smart Playlists: Once you understand how to use them both are very handy tools to sort your music library.
The Media Center iTunes, which gets more powerful with each new version released, offers two ways to create playlists. There are the smart playlists in iTunes and the “normal” ones. Normal playlists are created with a click on the “+” sign on the bottom left while smart playlists can be found in the menu file –> new smart playlist. While you can put together the simple playlists as you wish smart playlists will allow you to filter your music for special criteria, e.g. you can make a playlist based on some artists or genre – whatever you prefer.
