Playlists sample

Shows how to create, save, display, and edit a playlist of audio files.

Note: This sample is part of a large collection of UWP feature samples. If you are unfamiliar with Git and GitHub, you can download the entire collection as a ZIP file, but be sure to unzip everything to access shared dependencies. For more info on working with the ZIP file, the samples collection, and GitHub, see Get the UWP samples from GitHub. For more samples, see the Samples portal on the Windows Dev Center.

This sample uses classes that are in the Windows.Media.Playlists namespace. It provides five scenarios:

  1. Create and save a playlist from a set of audio files.

    This creates a new Playlist object and saves it using SaveAsAsync.

  2. Display the contents of an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).

    This loads a Playlist object using LoadAsync, and obtains the properties of each file in Playlist.Files using Windows.Storage.FileProperties.StorageItemContentProperties.GetMusicPropertiesAsync.

  3. Insert an item at the end of an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).

    This loads a Playlist object using LoadAsync, and appends a file to Playlist.Files.

  4. Remove an item from the end of an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).

    This loads a Playlist object using LoadAsync, and removes the file at the end of Playlist.Files.

  5. Remove all items from an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).

    This loads a Playlist object using LoadAsync, and clears the files in Playlist.Files.

Note The Universal Windows app samples require Visual Studio 2017 to build and Windows 10 to execute.

Build the sample

  1. If you download the samples ZIP, be sure to unzip the entire archive, not just the folder with the sample you want to build.
  2. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and select File > Open > Project/Solution.
  3. Starting in the folder where you unzipped the samples, go to the Samples subfolder, then the subfolder for this specific sample, then the subfolder for your preferred language (C++, C#, or JavaScript). Double-click the Visual Studio Solution (.sln) file.
  4. Press Ctrl+Shift+B, or select Build > Build Solution.

Run the sample

The next steps depend on whether you just want to deploy the sample or you want to both deploy and run it.

Deploying the sample

  • Select Build > Deploy Solution.

Deploying and running the sample

  • To debug the sample and then run it, press F5 or select Debug > Start Debugging. To run the sample without debugging, press Ctrl+F5 or select Debug > Start Without Debugging.
