Playlist

KPlayer's playlist toolbar has a drop down box that shows the current playlist. It stores files and streams that have been played or are going to be played and lets you easily switch to a different item and play it.

  • Loop option is available from the Player menu, the playlist toolbar and the playlist popup menu. When enabled, it makes KPlayer start playing items from the beginning of the list after it finishes playing the last item on the list.

  • Shuffle option is also available from the Player menu, the playlist toolbar and the playlist popup menu. When enabled, it makes KPlayer play items in a random order. When the Loop option is also enabled, items will be reshuffled every time KPlayer restarts playback from the top of the list. To reshuffle immediately, disable the Shuffle option and then enable it again.

  • Allow duplicate entries on playlists option is available on the General page of the KPlayer Configuration dialog. When enabled, it allows KPlayer to put identical entries on the playlist. By default it is disabled, and if you queue the same file twice, the old entry will be removed before adding the new one at the bottom of the playlist.

The Edit command opens the current playlist in the multimedia library where you can add new items and remove or change the order of existing ones. It is available from the playlist popup menu that you can open by right clicking the playlist drop down box on the playlist toolbar.

To save the current playlist in the Playlists section of the multimedia library, right click the playlist drop down box on the playlist toolbar, select Add toPlaylists... and enter a playlist name. The new playlist will then be added to each menu that works on playlists. See the multimedia library configuration for details.
