Emms provides a visual, interactive playlist mode as well as the ability to use playlists without ever looking at then. This visual, interactive mode is called the `emms-playlist-mode' and is defined in emms-playlist-mode.el.
The interactive playlist mode is enabled by default in the `emms-standard', `emms-all' and `emms-devel' setup levels. For more information about Emms setup levels see See Simple Setup.
Switch to the current emms-playlist buffer and use emms-playlist-mode.
The interactive playlist buffer shows the tracks in the current Emms playlist in the order in which they will be played. The current track will be highlighted.
When in the interactive playlist mode we can perform different actions on the current playlist.
We can also edit the playlist using familiar GNU/Emacs commands:
We can use the regular GNU/Emacs killing and yanking commands to move and copy tracks in between playlist buffers. We can use the same commands to insert arbitrary text into the playlist buffers together with the playlist tracks. Text which is not a track is ignored by the program and can therefore be used to include titles and annotations within the playlist.
