This week's XBMC Playlist Download is “Current Rock & Pop.” This playlist is kind of the opposite of last week's XBMC Playlist Download. It doesn't include songs with a genre of Classic Rock. It does include all of your Rock & Roll plus it includes Pop, Surf and Metal.

This XBMC Playlist Download points out the need to remind you that you can edit a playlist. When you're in XBMC's playlist listing, follow these steps:

  • Highlight the playlist you want to edit
  • Press the “C” key (or right-click with the mouse)
  • Arrow or mouse down to “Edit Playlist”
  • Press the “Enter” key or left-click the mouse
  • Add or remove items and make any other kind of edits you wish

The reason I mention editing playlists is that this week's playlist can be jarring for some folks. You can end up listening to Train, followed by AC/DC, followed by Carlos Santana which might be followed by Katy Perry. In our household, this kind of playlist works, but I sometimes see others in the house flinch a bit. I'm not quite sure if it's the last wild style transition or my latest joke.

After downloading the .ZIP file, you need to do two things:

  1. Unzip the playlist into your XBMC music playlist folder — You can find specific information on playlist folders in this article: Playlist Folders in XBMC
  2. Start XBMC (if it isn't already running) and navigate to the Playlist section of your music library, select this new playlist and enjoy

Today's playlist is 1,403 bytes in size and contains all of your current Rock, Pop, Metal and similar music in random order.

That's all there is to it. Follow the instructions listed above and quick as you can say, “#offthehook,” you'll have a new music playlist. (Thanks to Katherine for the phrase and to Jenna for the hash tag on that one – I'm getting a bit long in the tooth)

Note: If you just copy the .ZIP file into your playlist folder, XBMC will handle it just fine. It sees the zip file and adds it to your list of playlists. Clicking on the .ZIP file will open it up and present you with the contents. In the case of today's file: “Current Rock & Pop.” Click on that and it works like any other playlist.

Today's playlist is “Current Rock & Pop.”
