Profile Specific Playlists And Auto-Playlists

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Bill Harrison, Oct 19, 2004.

  1. We are running WMP10 on WinXP Pro SP2 over a Dell Dimension 4600. I must
    admit that I'm really surprised by the number of problems other people in
    this group are experiencing. Our setup has performed flawlessly. We have
    11,000 tracks in our library and WMP10 seems to be faster than WMP9 when it
    comes to library view and pushing the tracks around.

    Anyway, I have WMP10 setup with All Users\Shared Docs\Shared Music as the
    core. I have two teen age children who happen to have great musical taste
    and I encourage them to share their tunes with me. They have introduced me
    to some great new stuff while I school them with my music. It has been a fun
    symbiosis. We are all pretty agressive in creating Playlists and
    Auto-Playlists. The result are large numbers of each. Is there a good way to
    share all the music like we are but set it up so each of us only has access
    to our own playlists and auto-playlists?

    Keep up the great work!

    A: There's an amazing amount of users (truly stunning: in college, I never
    thought my work would be this widely used) and this is one of the "easiest"
    places to get free advice. Proportionately the traffic here is very
    impressively low, but ... a problem is a problem, and I hate them all. =)

    B: The easiest way to do this is to set the Record To location in WMP's
    Tools:Options:Rip to a private directory, and then use WMP's
    Tools:Options:Media Library to monitor the shared folders, I'd think...

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)
    See for some helpful WMP info.
    Following up to your post with the resolution is good netiquette.
