click here

Choose File > New Smart Playlist.
To have iTunes add songs that match specific criteria, make sure "Match the following condition" is checked, then make your selections from the pop-up menus.

For example, you might want iTunes to only add songs that are by a particular artist, or songs with at least a four-star rating.

To add additional matching criteria, click the
Add (+) button.

To make the playlist a specific duration or size, select "Limit to" and make your selections from the pop-up menus.
To include only songs that have a checkmark beside them in your library (and that match your conditions), select "Match only checked songs."

To have iTunes continually modify your Smart Playlist as songs are added to or removed from your library, make sure "Live updating" is selected.
To create your Smart Playlist, click OK, then name the playlist in the Source list.

There's a search box top left, just enter what song you're looking for and it'll find it.

Yes, you can use iTunes just as a media player.


  JIM 16:31 29 Dec 2004

Yes and yes .You will also get a copy of quicktime.

What you may not want is for itunes or quicktime to be the default for files amd mime but at least they ask when program opens up.

sorry for being a pain i am going to download itunes when i transfer my music over to it will i be able to delete all the music from media/p. to free up disc space thanks again for helping me out here(she who thinks she must be obeyed)wants it sorted out for the new year.

and all the best in 2005 to one and all have a great one.

it's not a matter of clearing disk space, as any player including itunes will make a playlist from what's on your drive and play them.

(they are all the same original files being played)

You can clear/delete the playlist or any media file from any media player so they do not show in the 10 player or others. Just be-carefull,select delete from playlist only,and not files from your system or you have nothing to play.iTunes like others will play and show a list from cd disk etc when loaded.
