How to Create Video Playlists in iTunes

7 of 7 in Series: The Essentials of iTunes

iTunes lets you create video playlists. You can drag individual videos and TV shows into a playlist and rearrange them to play in any sequence you want.

  1. Click the Add Playlist button or choose File→New Playlist.

    Clicking the Add Playlist button, in the lower-left corner of the iTunes window, under the Source pane, creates a new playlist named untitled playlist in the Playlists section of the Source pane.

  2. In the Playlists section of the Source pane, click untitled playlist twice and give it a new, descriptive name.

    After you type a new name, iTunes automatically sorts it into alphabetical order in the Playlists section of the Source pane, underneath the preset smart playlists.

  3. Select the Movies or TV Shows option in the Source pane and then drag videos from the library to the playlist.

    Drag one video at a time or drag a selection of items, dropping them onto the playlist name in the Source pane. The initial order of videos in the playlist is based on the order in which you drag them to the list.

  4. Select the playlist in the Playlists section of the Source pane and then drag videos to rearrange the list.

    To move a video up the list and scroll at the same time, drag it over the up arrow in the first column (the item number). To move a video down the list and scroll, drag it to the bottom of the list. To move a group of videos at once, press Shift and select a range of items (or press Command on a Mac or Ctrl in Windows to select specific items) and then drag them into a new position.
