ITunes :: Smart Playlist Is Pulling Up Songs That Were Deleted?

Apr 9, 2012

I deleted some songs from my library (and computer) but they still show up in a smart playlist (the playlist pulls by 'year').  The playlist cannot find the locations but why does the smart playlist still look for them even though they don't exist in the library anymore? Also, when I sync my iPod it says that it cannot sync the deleted songs. I have tried deleting the playlist and creating a new one, but it still pulls up the ghost songs.

ITunes :: How To Use Smart Playlist With Live Updating

Jul 25, 2010

I am trying to figure out how the live updating feature on smart playlists works.

I created a simple smart playlist with one rule "Media Kind is Music". I ticked the box to "limit to 25 items selected by random". I also ticked the box for "live updating". When I clicked OK to save the smart playlist, iTunes selected 25 songs from my music library and put them in the smart playlist. I then synced the smart playlist to my iPhone. The same 25 songs appeared in the smart playlist on my iPhone. So far, so good.

Then I played a number of the songs in the smart playlist on my iPhone. I also played songs from the smart playlist in iTunes on my MacBook Pro. I exited and re-entered iTunes multiple times. I re-synced my iPhone several times as well. And guess what? The smart playlist, both in iTunes and on the iPhone, still contains the same list of 25 songs that were selected when I first created the smart playlist.

ITunes :: Freezing Up - Smart Playlist At Fault?

Jun 17, 2012

Recently I've started creating and using Smart Playlists.  And ever since I created a Smart Playlist - when I make any change to the metadata (artist, album title, anything at all - even just changing one letter) - iTunes freezes up for about 10 to 20 seconds as the wheel spins and iTunes processes the new information.  But in the meantime iTunes is rendered completely frozen up for me.  Same thing happens if I begin importing (whether from CD or just dragging) new music.  Is this sort of thing normal?  I assume it's the program processing the new information for the Smart Playlist, but for pete's sake, does it have to render the complete program useless?  Smart Playlists are a nice idea, but they have made iTunes a nightmare to deal with!

ITunes :: Smart Playlist - Location Is On This Computer?

Jun 29, 2012

I've just received my new MacBook Air (I'm loving it!) and as it's blank I'm taking the opportunity to assess my iTunes library and previous purchases.  I have downloaded a total of 20 tracks, so there are only 20 tracks stored on the harddrive, all other tracks are in iCloud. I've set up a smart playlist with the criteria, Location - is - on this computer, I fully expected this smart playlist to show me the 20 tracks that I've downloaded, but it remains blank. 

I'm wanting to see these tracks, but for some reason the smart playlist isn't working.  Is this because the settings for the smart playlist are wrong, ie. this won't show what's on the hard drive? or is something going wrong with my playlist?

ITunes :: Create A Smart Playlist - Results Are Always Empty?

May 15, 2012

Long time itunes user and have never had any issues creating a smart playlist untill recently.  I have a large libary 16,500+, am a itunes match user, and do use icloud.  For the last couple weeks any time i try to create a smart playlist the results are always empty.  I have tried simple requests like artist contain so and so, genre is rock, time is over 1:00 etc etc and nothing will populate.  Also if i edit and old smart playlist by adding another condition it wipes it out for example i have a playlist with rock songs if i add the condition to only have songs over 1 minute i get an empty set.  I'm sure it is a simple solution but i can not figure out what i have done.  Only major changes i have made recently are getting an ipad and joining itunes match other than that i have made no changes to my settings or network (at least that i know of).

ITunes :: Create A Live Update Smart Playlist That Shuts Off After A While?

Feb 6, 2012

I'm trying to create a smart playlist with the following properties: 

1) Every time I play it, it selects a different random set of songs.

2) The playlist plays for a fixed duration, then shuts off.  (I like to go to sleep to music, but it wakes me up in the middle of the night if it plays for too long.) 

The best I've been able to come up with is to set "not played in the last xx days", "Limit to yy minutes selected by random", and "live updating".  However, there's a problem with this:  as soon as one song has played, it's purged from the list, which causes live updating to replace it with a new song.  As a result, this creates a list that plays forever, since new songs are continuously added to replace the ones that have been played. 
I tried turning off live updating, but then I'm stuck with the same songs over and over.  I also know about the trick of just using "select random" and deleting the contents of the list, so that live update will repopulate it, but that won't work on an iPod without doing it in iTunes and then re-syncing.

ITunes :: Smart Playlist Editor Is Inaccessible (localization Error)?

Feb 12, 2012

What does not work is:create new smart playlist by option clicking on the iconcreate new smart playlist from menu (or by keyb. shortcut)edit a smart playlist that i created before this problem The common in these are that the next step would be the Smart Playlist Editor to open, but it does not, never. I tried so far:repair permissionscreate fresh Libraryreinstall iTunes Actually while writing this i came across the real problem: There is a syntax problem in the Hungarian localization files of iTunes, this causes an exception that I noticed the system logs. 

iTunes[1156]: Error parsing localization!
Key: %[bpm]@ %[is]@ %@
Value: %1$[BPM]@ %2$[]@ %3$@
Error is: No items were specified between [ and ]


How can I contact someone, or file a ticket to make this bug patched soon?

ITunes :: Add Specific Podcasts To The Recently Added Smart Playlist?

Feb 13, 2012

I subscribe to several podcast, most of them are news and I have a couple of them that are music that I'd like to add to the Recently Added Smart Playlist. By default the this playlist has the criteria Media Kind is not Podcast, so when I specify a podcast it'll not appear and if I remove this criteria, all the podcasts will appear which of course I don't want. I could just specify every single podcast I don't want but the problem would be that I'd have to keep editing the playlist everytime I subscribe to a new one; a thing I don't feel very comfortable with. I tried using subcriteria but the Media Kind is not Podcast just overrules everything I add afterwards.

ITunes :: No Audio From Songs In Playlist?

Apr 28, 2012

We have an iPhone 4 that is not playing audio from a playlist we created.  We thought it was because we originally created it in the "cloud" but we deleted it and then created a new one. We synced it and still no audio playback. It also skips over tracks. When we try to individually select that song to play, it "skips" over it.

ITunes :: How To Change The Order Of Songs In A Playlist

Jun 6, 2012

I know that I used to be able to drag songs to a different order in my iTunes playlists, but tonight, no matter the order that I add the songs to the playlist, or Smart Playlist, the order of the songs is alphabetically arranged, and the only other option is to click on "name" but then it just does reverse alphabetical order.Is something different, in a recent iTunes upgrade?  I'm a music teacher and I am trying to put the songs in the order that my students will be performing them next week?
