iTunes smart playlists with nested rules
Authored by: grahamix on Oct 16, '12 03:26:28AM

In the past, I have found that nested Smart Playlists do not play nicely with syncing to iOS devices or with iCloud.


If you have Smart Playlists of 'Electronic' and '1990s' and then create a nested Smart Playlist combining the two called 'Electronic of the 1990s', the playlist will not work on device unless *both* playlists are synced to the device. This is problematic when you have a large music library on your computer and you're trying to use SPLs to manage music on your iPhone/iPod.

For this reason, I stopped using them.

I've not done much investigation (see above), but one of my remaining nested Smart Playlists showed an iCloud error icon, so I'm assuming similar restrictions apply.
