Creating a Playlist

We recommend saving your playlist as a .m3u file type which is cross compatible with modern versions of Windows and OS X. Optionally, you can save it as a .VLC but it may not play iTune file types. If saving to a .VLC file type be sure to include the .vlc extension in the file name. Otherwise it will be saved as a m3u.

A playlist can be saved to any location and lainched by either douple clicking on the playlist file itself or by selecting File->Launch playlist when viewing the Setlist notetab page. During the process of playlist creation you will be prompted to open the playlist on the spot.
