@mathu204, Following on from this helpful video, you can access playlists through Bingie by going to your library and then bring up the library context menu (left off widget focus if using bingie views) and select this option:
Image

There, you will find the edit playlist option.   Tags aren't actually necessary in a lot of cases. Anything you see in skin playlists can just be recreated with this option, of course with your own set of rules. 

I've got a playlist with rules that will just show my favourite directors for example, another for only displaying titles with specific actors. And then you can even combine these playlists to make a new playlist with all the rules from both. It's really simple when you know how.

You also have the option of doing it through a text editor using XML which must be a lot quicker once you're comfortable with the format of a smart playlist file. I'm going to do this myself soon I think.
XML = easy lol that's a riot. Believe it or not I have played around in the code for the average user who doesn't have a programming or coding background using the Kodi controls is the easier method but if you are up for a challenge it is fun to mess around with the xml it's how people like Carman Achilles and HugoL get started to keep this skin ever evolving so try it out if you are up for the challenge.

I don’t know about easy. I mean, it seems simple enough to me but I have spent a few months in the xmls now and the format for playlists in particular look a hell of a lot simpler than anything you’ll encounter in the skin folders.

However, I didn’t actually say that. I said it should be quicker, so that’s why I’m going to start doing them through a text editor instead.

I stand corrected it's not even quicker for someone like me who types with two fingers lol. Thank you for the last few months in the xmls.

Ok. I think the issue is that you’ve changed them in the past so it’s set. The new ones are a replacement for the default old ones.

I have feeling, the only way to get them now is to restore your menu items in the configure shortcuts menu.

I don’t think so. That folder doesn’t point to the new icons. Think that’s next of my list of things to do.

So you see in the search hub how theres multiple lists under the keyboards? How can I add my own smart playlists there if its possible? 

And is it also possible to download someone elses smart playlists and tags? Like obviously it wouldnt fill my library with the content from it, but all the parameters and tags like with the search playlists, if i have content that meets the set parameters,tags or whatever it would show up.

Im going to make my own smart playlists too though I made a test playlist pertaining to Chadwick Boseman and it worked.

Also @AchillesPunks I have an HDMI but i dont use it, plus i just reinstalled windows on this laptop and havent used the hdmi since, i use it for my drawing tablet before reinstalling windows but not to a TV. But its fine its not breaking the skin for me so its okay

and @HugoL how can i access the new icons? Can you tell me the folder location?
