does anybody know of a better media player that will still let me sync to my iPod (touch if it makes a difference)? Or at the very least does anybody know a way to make a playlist then simply add it to iTunes without it being a huge pain in the ass?
...does anybody know a way to make a playlist then simply add it to iTunes...
You don't add playlists to iTunes, you make them INSIDE of iTunes.
Open iTunes, click the little "+" button to add an untitled playlist (rename it if you want). Go to music, then drag the songs you want into the playlist. Arrange them in the order you want them to be played. Done.
If you want the playlist on your Touch, then enable that playlist to sync up with the touch in preferences (I think you do it like this), or you can just drag it to the Touch icon in iTunes (again, I think).
Sorry, I don't own an iPod cuz I'm a cheap fuck, so I don't know all the answers.
