Windows 7: Edit Playlist start position? - Windows Media Player

Edit Playlist start position? - Windows Media Player

Hello everyone. I'm looking for some help here. This is my first post here so I hope i'm in the right spot.

I'm trying to make a playlist of videos in Windows Media Player 12 and I want to make the playlist start at different positions. (start at clip 2, or 3 etc. but I still want clip #1 to be in the playlist. )

Let's say I have 3 videos. I want to create 3 playlists ( and save them afterwards to a usb ) and I want the playlists to play like this..

Playlist 1 - Start at clip 1, play clip 2, play clip 3
Playlist 2 - Clip 1, Start at clip 2, play clip 3
Playlist 3 - clip 1, clip 2, Start at clip 3

These would be used in for a script or report etc..

So someone would be reading the script/report then could click Start of scene 1 - (which hyperlinks to playlist 1)

Then they could click the next part in the script which says, Joey falls down - (hyperlinks to playlist 2 but they can still click back and go to clip1 while using the playlist2 hyperlink)

I hope this makes sense and someone can help me! Any help appreciated,

can't loop playlist on Hyperlink

ok so I realized I can just add the previous clip to the end of the playilst.

Let's use playlist 2 as an example. I move clip 1 to the end of the playlist and start the playlist at clip 2. This works when I play the playlist file itself. Clip 2 opens up with clip 3 following and clip 1 at the end. Pressing BACK or previous clip(whatever it's called) goes to clip 1. pressing it again goes to clip 3, then 2 and so on..

But.... When I use a hyperlink in a PDF to link to this playlist on the USB, the playlist will not go BACK go clip 1. It will only go back to where the playlist begins.

I'm so confused. Why would this work when i play the playlist itself but not when i use the hyperlink?!

How to change what Windows Media Player shows in playlist
Hi all, I normally use Winamp (mainly out of inertia) but on this work machine I can't be arsed to install it so I just use WMP12 that's already on it. What I loathe about WMP is the fact that the playlist seems fixed to only display "song name, rating (stars), duration". How do I change this? ...

Windows Media Player 12 shortcut edit?
I have been using the old classic version of Widows Media Player and love the old shortcut of pressing the space bar for play/pause. I was wondering if there is a way to edit the short cut so that I can modify it back to space bar being play/pause? Thanks
