    Export playlist

    Depends. If your separate libraries share the same media file then it is pretty simple. Highlight the playlist you want to export. Go up to file/ library/export playlist. Export as an XML file. Move the file to the other computer, go back to file/library/import playlist and select the file you just created. You should be all set. You can do this with as many playlists you want. If however you have two separate media files the new playlist won't be able to find the music files. If you duplicated your music files you should be able to click on the play list and when asked to locate the music file point it to the new library media file and find the song. When asked if it should use the same music folder for the rest of the missing files click yes. It may find all of the songs in the playlist, it may not. But still easier than recreating the playlist.

    beautiful; that worked.

    basically, I have a library of more than 25000 songs, and want to use itunes match, so trying to create a playlist of approx. 25000 songs that will be its own library ... Thanks so much!
