I've known about the existence of playlists, but I've never used the function. In fact, I'm not even sure that that the playlist function can be used like I THINK it can be used or that I hope it can be used. So, I want to find out what exactly a playlist is and IF it can be used like I'm hoping it can be used.
Since I no longer have a cassette player, but still have tons of great music on my cassettes that I don't have on CDs, I started recreating that music collection on my Flash Drive via the YouTube downloading route.
I already have many YouTubes downloaded and organized in folders as per music genre, decade and artist. Here is what I'm wondering: For example --- in my Huey Lewis & the News folder I have 3 sub folders, one each for 3 different albums. NOW ... is there such a thing as that with the playlist function I can fix it so that by double clicking on one VLC icon in that sub folder, it will play ALL of the songs in that sub folder in the order that I had the songs on the cassette? You know ... instead of having to double click on each song's VLC icon as I have to do currently? Yeah, as it stands right now, I cannot have an entire album play from a folder without having to manually start each next song when the previous one ends.
CAN this be done with the playlist function. And of course, I want it to be permanent, activated by the double clicking of an icon. I don't want to have to set up a playlist EVERY time that I want to play an entire album from a folder in my Flash Drive.
