17 Apr

Player FM helps you discover and play podcasts on any device.We love podcasts because they are a great way for busy people to learn, laugh, stay informed while you're on the go.Player FM is on-demand content similar to You Tube or Netflix. You can make your subscriptions public and share them on the web.Yes, it's free to install and the features you enjoy today will always be free, plus more to come. The catalogue organization is also available under a Creative Commons license.) But I see no reason why podcast would mess anything up. My grand syncing scheme was to set up smart playlists like this on several REALLY large playlists: Playlist is X Limit to 100 songs The thing is, X has like 8 GB of music in it, as does Y, Z, A, and B.Alright, this is the most maddening limitation to me. That's why I can't just throw them all on the device as is. I've thought of selecting the playlists, then doing ctrl-A, Get Info, and adding a comment to all the songs, but that's kind of a pain.The update brings i Tunes to version 12.4 and includes the design tweaks that were initially rumored earlier this month.i Tunes 12.4 introduces a variety of interface tweaks that Apple says make it easier to navigate the app and switch between different kinds of content.

Perhaps most notably, there’s a persistent sidebar reminiscent of the old days of i Tunes.

In my experience, there are certain rules that will make a smart playlist fail to update dynamically when on an i Pod.

Is there a complete (or mostly complete) list of what conditions do this?

From what I've experienced, these break live updating on i Pod smart playlists: *Podcast is stars My speculation is that the Playlist and Album Rating rules break live updating because the i Pod doesn't do the complex calculations that those require.

I think the Podcast rule is a bug and for all I know it's fixed now.
