Not following your requirement:
If VLC is already playing all the files in >mymusic (including those added since the last opening of VLC) I am not sure about the role of a playlist.
But to explore this further, create a short VLC playlist and take a look at it via Notepad or some text editor to see the formatting and structure.
If you can manually edit the playlist in some manner, then you can probably create a macro that will add files to to the playlist.
And there are programs such as MoveMouse (free) that can record and play back mouse moves etc.. If the process is consistent enough you may be able to take advantage there.
Hi. Did a bit of research; what I'd like to do is called a 'dynamic play list', where VLC automatically adds new files to my playlist as the files are created. I even found a youtube tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kim5QM0nKfQ
I tried this just now, but I'm tired, and didn't do something right. Will try again tomorrow
Thanks for your help
