Currently I only see about 12 songs in upnext, not so great when I want to create a 3 hour playlist, but I can't find a setting anywhere to increase this.

Does such a thing exist?

Only on this site! Maybe because no one is answering my questions with a satisfactory response? i.e. One that actually answers the question I have asked not something different or only 20% of what I'm trying to do. – adolf garlic Dec 13 '12 at 10:45

You can make a normal or intelligent playlist and play it. Do not use shuffle and you can add songs during playback.

Edit: If you just want to show more songs in upnext - it is not possible. But 12 Songs i s a plenty of view in the future....

What does this have to do with altering the number of songs showing in the 'upnext' window? Did you even read the question? – adolf garlic Dec 13 '12 at 10:46
I read your question - and you said you want to create a 3h playlist (this is your end goal) so creating a normal playlist and adding songs to it will work (although up next will still show only 12 songs). But you accomplished your goal to have an 3h editable playlist. – Pfitz Dec 13 '12 at 10:51
Question title: altering the default number of songs in upnext – adolf garlic Dec 13 '12 at 12:44
