3 Tips for QuickTime Playlist You Have to Know

by Christine Smith • Dec 03,2019 • Proven solutions

QuickTime is a universal media player that does everything beautifully well except creating playlists. It is somewhat of a bummer to realize that even though QuickTime is a sophisticated application, it can’t support something as simple as creating playlists. That is the reason why most folks turn to iTunes if they want to create playlists for their movies.

There is one alternative though, and that is using Playlist Lite, which is a free app for Mac that allows for the creation of playlists that can be used by both QuickTime and iTunes. Since it is the ‘Lite’ version of the app, as the name clearly suggests, it only allows adding a maximum of 10 items in the playlist. Nonetheless, a great option for anyone who wants a playlist on their QuickTime player.

Let us take a look at this app now and see how to use it.

Part 1. How to Make a QuickTime Playlist on Mac

Step 1: Click here to download and install the app Playlist Lite on to your computer.

Step 2: After you have successfully installed the app, launch it. You would see that the interface of the app has 2 panels; 1st panel resembles the player control area with buttons similar to the ones you would find on iTunes. You will also find subtle differences such as the positioning of the loop and shuffle buttons which are given at the bottom of the app, unlike on the iTunes. The 2nd panel offers two collapsible lists - ‘Playlist’ that will contain the playlist you would create for QuickTime, and ‘iTunes’ that contains the playlists for iTunes.
