The Playlist is a powerful part of Amarok. One can drag in some tracks, but there is a lot more available.
Saved playlist is a traditional type of playlist. Saved playlists work like Amarok's current playlist, saved in the Amarok database or your file system for later use. It can be fun to use them at events when you have specific songs you want played.
Creating a saved playlist is very easy with the exact songs and order that you want. For every day use, sometimes it is faster to use Dynamic Playlists or the Automatic Playlist Generator when you have less specific needs for specific tracks and progression.
To browse and manage your saved playlists, go to → on the menubar.
You can save your current playlist into the Amarok database by clicking the save icon () at the bottom of the Playlist view. You can browse playlists in the Amarok database by going to → in the Media Sources pane and expanding the Amarok database section. You will find them in your filesystem here:
You can export your current playlist to your file system by clicking → from the top menubar. From the opening save dialog, you can change the name, location and type of the playlist. Then just click on Save. Remember, playlist files don't contain any music data. If you want to listen the content of the playlist on another computer, you'll need to bring your music with you unless that computer already has the tracks.
You can import a playlist file into Amarok just by copying it to any directory that Amarok knows as part of your music collection. When Amarok detects a new playlist on any folder of your collection, it will add it to the Playlist Files on Disk section of → in the Media Sources pane. If the playlist doesn't appear right away, you can update the collection manually by clicking → . If instead of importing the playlist, you want to just listen it, open it with → from menubar. Selected playlist will be added to the current playlist.
