Alright I have found a way online to do it, the article was in Dutch so I will translate it for you all.
Things you Need:
MAC, preferred latest version
An TextEditor, if you don't have one get the free TextWrangler
Charles Proxy, free to download proxy tool
Python 3, download the MAX OS X installer here
Step 1 - The ...
"Playlists that reference other Playlists can not be uploaded"
It took me awhile to figure out the solution to this problem, but I eventually did. You can no longer just drag and drop songs from Apple Playlists to new ones that you create yourself, but you are still able to do it a different way. You also used to be able to just right-click on a song, a ...
.m3u files are really nothing more than just basic plain text files. My guess is that you're getting this issue because TextEdit is not currently set to use plain text as its format.
You don't specify what version of macOS you're running, but in the more recent versions of TextEdit you can change how it deals with file formats by default.
Change the ...
If you create your own movie player using the QuickTime Framework it's possible to add whatever functionality you want. QuickTime Player itself does not appear to offer playlist capability on Mac OS X. Here's a few screen captures of my movie player using a playlist:
Quicktime Player (X or version 7) doesn't support playlists to my knowledge. You could add the files to a playlist in iTunes, or download VLC. I'd highly recommend VLC, it's free, it can tackle pretty much any format you can throw at it (including .mov), and you can just drag and drop files to a playlist to queue them up very simply.
Turn on the iCloud Download and iCloud Status columns in iTunes, using View > Show View Options (on a Mac). Look for items with problems: for example, voice memos, which can't be uploaded to iTunes Match.
If step 1 doesn't reveal any problems, try turning off iTunes Match (via Store > Turn Off iTunes Match), then turn it on again.
Sure, you can make those audio lessons appear as podcasts. In iTunes, right click your song(s) and select Get info (or ⌘ cmd+I). On the Options tab, change the Media Kind to Podcast.
The appearance is slightly different when selecting multiple songs, but is very straight forward

This tells me it's shuffled right now; click it to turn off again.
Re-ordering should be as simple as dragging to a new position, but whilst it's shuffled it will appear to ignore you, as it's unlikely to recalculate the shuffle at that point.
This is what finally worked for me.
Create a new playlist, and copy all songs from the problem playlist
In playlist, remove all downloads. I did this by highlighting all songs, clicking on ..., and selecting 'remove download'.
This make the download from iCloud icon appear next to all the songs
Then I had to go through and click each song to get it to ...
Yes you can, on both iTunes and your Apple device. You didn't mention which device specifically, but on iTunes, look for the + icon or the ..., which you can click and Add to My Music as well.
Check out these screenshots below on iTunes. I boxed the + icon on both pictures because that is the simpler approach, but you can also click the ...:
Hi placed exactly the same question in one of the Apple forums, and I received this helpful reply:
The playlist selection drop down has been broken in the last few
builds and doesn't expand properly, however once you have selected it
the up and down cursor keys should still let you chose a list to refer
The reason your Add songs to Library when adding to playlists checkbox is greyed out is because you haven't enabled the iCloud Music Library (see the checkbox above the one that is greyed out).
If you enable iCloud Music Library, then you can store your Apple Music songs and playlists in iCloud and access them across all your devices.
In summary, by ...
Your library is all the media you own or have access to. A playlist is just a group of media that you put together in a custom order; a subset of all that media. The songs in a playlist don't necessarily have to be in your library (i.e. songs you access on Apple Music)
When you play songs on shuffle, the iPod will skip any songs that are in a playlist but ...
You're not the only one suffering from this issue. A lot of people are complaining on the internet about this.
A solution would be to turn off iTunes Match on your iPhone, delete all your music on your iPhone (it's all in the iCloud, right? So you won't lose any) and then activate iTunes Match on your iPhone. You'll be able to download all your play-lists,...
Denis Ahrens mentioned something about that in the last episode of mobileMacs (timecode).
For those of you who don't know German: He said that all of his music is lossless and that iTunes recently learned how to encode these files to 256kbit/s AAC when syncing his music to his iPhone. When he switched this on, he experienced the same problem that you have: ...
I just answered my own question. I didn't realize that the list I was trying to edit was a Smart Playlist, which of course assembles lists based on the criteria you set up. The only way to edit these lists is to change the criteria by which songs are included or modify the songs' information. My regular playlists have the proper Edit buttons.
According to HT1660 playlist information is stored in
(and in ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music Library.xml but that is generated from the file above by iTunes and primarily there to give other applications access to your music library). If you restored your Music folder from the backup the file should have gotten restored as ...
Since I got the Tumbleweed badge for this, I'll respond with what I did.
Cleared all the star ratings from my entire music library.
In each of my "genre" playlists, assigned every song a rating of 5-stars
Created a smart playlist that includes every song with 5 stars. This playlist will sync over iCloud to my iDevices for listening.
Created a second smart ...
I had the same problem: smart playlist hidden on the iPhone, but fixed playlist (not the smart ones) correctly synchronized.
In my smart playlist, i put a condition like "playlist not 'xxx'". While working on my pc, where the xxx playlist contains already downloaded files, it did not work on the iPhone, because the mobile has no clue how to handle the ...
Even though Ashley's solution solved it for a while the problem happened again therefore I tried her solution again. But it didn't stop. It happened again.
Today, it came to my mind out of nowhere that some playlist not syncing while some others were successfully syncing might be due to the ineligible songs in those not syncing playlists. And that seems to ...
After contacting a local Apple Store, I was informed that, the feature "Add all tracks" used in the playlist has been removed, and now you have to manually add each song or use iTunes to make the Playlist !!
Try Graphic Converter. It's good for lots of other things but you can use its slideshow features to play, for example, all the movies in a particular folder. Other than making sure the movies you want are in the folder, you don't have to actually make any kind of playlist. If you have .jpgs in the same folder, it will include them too, as part of your ...
Normally there is a default smart playlist with recently added items. If there is no such playlist you can easily recreate one with the following steps:
Creata a new smart playlist Shift+command+n
name it “recently added“
select match all rules
select date added is in the last 2 weeks
select media kind is not podcast
limit the result to 50 items
I saw this error when I added songs directly from the "For You" or "New" tabs in iTunes to a playlist.
To fix the error for my playlist I manually added the songs to My Library, then added them to a playlist. I was then able to sync that playlist.
Begin from Stopped rather than Paused.
Play, then Alt/click the play button to Stop. You'll see the currently-playing track then disappears from the header...
Then Play by double-clicking your chosen first Song, or choose an artist & hit Spacebar. It should then play in the visible order, assuming you don't have shuffle on.
