OGG files in Windows Media Player playlist?

Posted on 2004-11-21

It seems like when you're creating playlists in Windows Media Player, you can only add tracks that are currently in your media library.  WMP won't add OGG files to my library because they're not recognized as music files.

Is it possible to add OGG files to my music library, or is there any other way to create a playlist containing OGG files?

    I already have the OGG codecs working in Windows Media Player, I'm just not able to create a playlist with them.

    As of now, you can't put ogg files into the library, but you can put them into playlists.

    This works for me:

    While you have the ogg files playing go to  "media library" view and you will see the ogg files under "now playing". Right clcik the files and "add to playlist".
    Or, you can open a playlist in Media Player and drag the files into it from the folder where they are stored.
