Creating Smart Playlists in Windows Media Player

Posted on March 31, 2008. Filed under: microsoft, smart playlist, windows media player |

A “Smart  Playlist” is a type of playlist that changes automatically according to criteria you have specified. In Windows Media Player it is called an “Auto Playlist”.

I know that this feature exists in almost every media player but in Windows Media Player this feature is not clearly visible and many people don’t even know anything like this exists.

So here is how you can create a Smart Playlist in Windows Media Player:

Right click on the Playlist button on the left side of the library in window media player and select Create Auto Playlist.


Now a dialog box will pop up where you can specify parameters according to which the playlist will be generated:


So there you have it. This playlist will be automatically updated when you add a new song or rate a new song.
