I really have been trying to find a way to save my favorite podcast episodes from different channels into one playlist. With the new Love button in iTunes, I made a Smart Playlist using this feature. But no luck 😪 iTunes wasn't updating the Smart Playlist with any podcasts that I marked as Loved. Any ideas? Maybe this functionality isn't possible with iTunes? If so, that's a shame...

I noticed, you must add the podcast through the right-click menu also:

  • I know about songs, my question was about podcasts. :) Right, I think I did add it through the right-click menu, but it didn't seem to update at all or ever. There was an update for iTunes recently (12.2.1), maybe I'll try again. – jaminroe Jul 16 '15 at 17:28
  • @jaminroe Maybe live updating is off? – Downgoat Jul 16 '15 at 17:33
  • So I made the playlist again. Before I had the order of the rules like my screenshot above. I switched them around like yours, and its working now! Either that fixed it, or the iTunes update did. Thanks! – jaminroe Jul 16 '15 at 17:36
  • Unfortunately it doesn't sync to iOS. Not sure why :( Maybe a bug? Look here: i.imgur.com/ts8jLo2.png – jaminroe Jul 16 '15 at 18:48
