Similar to these options, you can use the features like Increase/decrease the sizes under the display to enhance and reduce the size of the files, which are opened on the current Playlist of the screen.

How to manage the Playlist?

In the playlist view option, you will find all the existing files on the queue of playback. However, you can add, remove, and update any media files on the list.

How to add the Media Files?

Adding the media files in the Playlist has very easy steps. You do this by simply clicking on the Playlist and select any one of the below options 

  1. Add File: It will allow you to select one or multiple files inside a similar Playlist or location.
  2. Add Folder: This feature allows you to select the entire folders. You can select one or more folders at a time.
  3. Advanced Open: Select the files/folders from the local storage of your computer, disc drive, network, and internet or other capture devices.

How to remove the media files?

Similar to adding the files, you can remove the media files easily if the files are no longer usable for you.

  • To do this, click on the multiple highlighted media files.
  • After this, right-click and select the “Remove Selected” option.
  • You can directly hit the “Delete” or ‘Backspace” keys as well after highlighting the media files.

How to sort the Playlist?

When you do the sorting of Playlist, the right-click menu is one of the most usable options for you. Simply right-click and choose the “Sub-menu Sort By” option.

We can sort the Playlist by ascending and descending order using the following options:

  1. Title
  2. Artist
  3. Album
  4. Track
  5. URI
  6. Disc number

How to saving and exporting the Playlist

After you have the setup list along with your choice’s songs and clips, and all is sorted out, you can now export the files and save these for playback in future. You can do this by right-clicking on the “Sub-Menu”, save Playlist to the file.

After doing this, a dialog will be displayed, which will allow you to open and save the existing media files list in the format of *.xspf, *.m3u, *.m3u8, and *.html. Here, the HTML file format is just to generate the list in a nice way which Nitro Media Player cannot open or playback. So, the other options are good for you to use instead of HTML.
