Author Topic: [Solved] Playlist with music from multiple libraries  (Read 286 times)

So I made a playlist tab, and started dragging music to it, and everything was going great.

I opened a different library, and realized that I am unable to add songs to the playlist from the second library.

How should I be doing this correctly, or is it not possible to have a playlist that spans multiple libraries?

Use filters instead of different libraries. That way all your music is in one library but can be filtered to show, or not show what you want. See the Wiki for more information.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

if you decide to stick with using multiple libraries, drag the files from windows explorer into the playlist - the files dont have to be sourced from the same library
