Getting started with iTunes playlists

CNET's Donald Bell walks you through the basics of creating and managing playlists in Apple's iTunes music software.

We're kicking off a new series of How-To videos here at CNET that focuses on practical instruction for everyday technology. This is stuff that's a little too fundamental to be on an existing segment such as Insider Secrets, but requires more explanation than a Quick Tip. For my part, I thought I'd knock out a few tutorials on some basic and intermediate aspects of Apple's ubiquitous iTunes jukebox software.

Now playing: Watch this: How to Create iTunes Playlists

In the following video and slideshow tutorial, I'll show you around the iTunes standard playlist feature (saving Genius and Smart playlists for another time). I know for many of you this is very basic stuff (especially if you're savvy enough to be reading the MP3 Insider blog), but I hope some of you will find the information useful or pass the link along to someone you know could use some help.

If you have some suggestions on other tutorials you'd like to see (especially if they're related to MP3 players or music software), be sure to send me an e-mail or drop a comment at the end of this post.
