How to Create a Playlist

A playlist is a set of audio files you want to play in a sequence or in a shuffled order. It usually contains a list of songs, but can also contain loops. A playlist can be arranged on a number of different formats and devices. These formats include Spotify, YouTube, and Independent curators.


If you want to submit your song to be played in a Spotify playlist, you can fill out a form and send it to the curator. While there are some automated playlists that Spotify creates, most playlists are created by human editors. To get your song added to a playlist, be sure to include as much information as possible.

You can also share a playlist with other people through social media and messaging apps. To share a playlist with others, click on the triple-dot icon that appears next to the playlist name. Then, select ‘Make public’ or ‘Make private’.


If you want your YouTube videos to be seen by more people, you can create a playlist. You can give your playlist a unique name and include up to 150 characters in the description. Once created, you can decide whether to make your playlist public or private. You can also choose to share the URL of your playlist.

You can create a YouTube playlist that is easy to navigate. The first step is to make sure your playlist is organized. Videos should be related to one another and have a logical progression of content. You can also search online for video ideas and incorporate them into your playlist. You can also create cliffhangers at the end of each video, which turn viewers into subscribers. There are different types of YouTube playlists, including public, private, and unlisted ones. The public version can be viewed by anyone, and is the best choice for building brand awareness.

Independent curators

If you want to make your music known, independent curators can be a great way to get it there. While pitching your music to playlist curators is intimidating, remember that they are also music fans, and they create playlists for their own personal enjoyment. Most independent curators are willing to add your song if they like it.

When contacting independent curators, it’s important to be professional and polite. Don’t pretend to be someone else or try to be pushy. Rather, approach each curator like you would a potential new fan, and respond to their message promptly and politely.

Optimising keywords in a playlist

When creating a playlist on YouTube, you can optimize it to target specific keywords. By using the pencil icon on the playlist edit page, you can add the title and description of each video to the playlist. This will ensure that the videos are related to each other and stick together in the search. The description should also include the playlist name and any other tags to help boost the SEO of your videos. Avoid keyword stuffing, though.

Limitations of rule based playlists

A playlist is a sequence of tracks. Its generation can be automated using an algorithm. This process is called automatic playlist generation, or APG. One of the most prominent characteristics of APG is the way in which the songs are ordered within the playlist. In order to model the transitions between songs, Markov chains have been proposed.

Among the problems that APCs face is evaluating the accuracy of the recommendations. Bonnin and Jannach state that the ultimate criterion for evaluation is user satisfaction, but user satisfaction is not easy to assess. Other approaches to evaluation involve human evaluation, which has problems with scale and reproducibility.
