It seems that the behavior of Smart Playlists with the "Live updating" option disabled has changed in i Tunes 8.Specifically, it used to be that you could force these playlists to update simply by opening the "Edit Smart Playlist" window for the list and clicking OK.
As of i Tunes 8, this no longer updates the playlist.You must instead open the window, select "Live updating", click OK, open the window again, unselect "Live updating", and finally click OK again.This is proving bothersome to those (like myself) who use a non-live-updating playlist to listen to unrated tracks, rating them as they go.Allowing the playlist to update live interrupts playback whenever you rate a track you are listening to.With the change in i Tunes 8, getting a new batch of tracks to rate is a relatively lengthy process. thread ID=1742897 Kevin Yank Just when I thought I knew everything about i Tunes, I caught this cool hint on Mac OSXhints- The i Tunes search allows search by star ratings.Simply add *'s to your search with or without other keywords. This makes it possible to find songs by the Beatles with three stars without having to resort to a Smart Playlist. To get the most out of smart playlists, you really need to have complete tag information.
