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 ...
.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.
"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 ...
There are several applications for doing this:
Yamipod is a freeware application that works on Windows, OS X, and Linux. It has a simple interface and looks very easy to use. There is a document on how to transfer songs from your iPod to your computer here. It is also an iPod manager and an alternative to using iTunes.
Transferpod is ...
You need to switch to list view to reorder songs in a playlist. To switch to list view click the list view button in the upper left hand side of the top of the iTunes windows:
Once you've switch to list view you need to make sure your items are sorted by track number (click the top of the the first column). Then you can drag tracks around in the playlist to ...
Create a new playlist on your local machine with the same name as the one you would like to import.
Click on the library that you wish to import a playlist from over Home Sharing.
Expand the library by clicking on the arrow to the left of the name.
Expand the folder called Playlists from within the library.
Drag the playlist from the home sharing library ...
Unfortunately this is not possible. As there isn't a column available for filename, one can't sort by it.
If you're willing to take the time, you can input the metadata and sort by track number. You'd only really need to enter the track numbers incrementally (like the file names), but you might instead choose to number the tracks per disk and then input ...
Under the File menu, In the Library expanding list, you will find "Export Playlist".
On the receiving machine you would use "Import Playlist" found in the same menu.
Seems like you have the right procedure (although I do not know for sure that drag and drop will work with the playlist...) but have you tried to export a .txt file - that's what I get when I ...
Create the new playlist.
Select all songs in the playlist and create duplicates (here: AAC version) of them.
Rename the Album title for all tracks and set the song order via the Get Info menu entry.
Burn the playlist and remove it.
You are save to remove the newly created Album in the iTunes Library (here: Testalbum) because you created duplicates earlier.
I have added a comment [xmas] to all my christmas songs and use this tag to exclude songs from playlists. For iTunes DJ I created a list containing all songs without the tag and used this list as basis for iTunes DJ.
PS: This of course only works if you don't use the comment field for something else.
There is no way you could do that, I have that problem also.
You could try to send YouTube a feature request, but I won't think they will do that as Google now owns YouTube and Google and Apple aren't exactly the best friends...
But you coud try :)
Oh brother ... I just spent about an hour trying to figure this out myself. I had my playlists in a nice order before this enforced alpha sorting. I hope there will be an update that will allow for some better customization.
Good news is ... I did find one leading symbol that will push your faves to the top! Without looking too ugly! And the voice command ...
No - the playlists only get curated from the playlist tab.
The iPods with physical buttons have an "add to playlist" functionality that worked this way but there's nothing yet in iOS 4 or less to do a similar thing. The drawback there is everything got added to the "on the go" playlist - not an arbitrary one.
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
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.

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 ...
Assuming you're running the latest iOS:
Select a playlist. Select "Edit" from the buttons at the top of the playlist under the search field. Tap the "+" in the top left of the toolbar. Find the song(s) you want, and hit the "+" to the right of their name. Tap "Done" when finished.
When you create playlists on an iOS device, those playlists get added to your iTunes Library whenever you sync. Once this happens, the fact that they were created on the iOS device doesn't matter anymore as far as iTunes is concerned--they're just more playlists that need to be synced back and forth according to your sync settings for said device.
I had this happen to me for the second time recently. I just fixed it!
I thought I looked up a fix the first time, which I haven't been able to find.
However this is what I did just now.
I copied the name of the playlist to the clipboard,
then I simply deleted the whole playlist (for me this was fine because it was one of MANY playlists in the folder, this ...
From any list of songs in iTunes (like for example, when you're on iTunes DJ) you can select the range of songs by clicking while holding the Shift key. Once all songs are highlighted you can go the File menu and select New Playlist From Selection. A new playlist will be shown at the bottom of the Playlist section containing the exact same song selection and ...
