If you have a huge playlist, and you have upgraded to a new PC or Mac, you may want to copy or rather transfer iTunes content from one computer to another. Transferring the playlist is more convenient, and faster rather than recreating it from zero.
However, to transfer music playlist from one device to the other without recreating the playlist, you will first need to export the playlist from iTunes on the first computer, then copy the iTunes playlist to the second computer, before running iTunes and importing the playlist to iTunes.
Let`s us go through this tutorial that will allow you to import iTunes playlists on both Windows and Mac, separately.
The final procedure for saving your playlist is to add any songs that are on the playlist but are not in the library. You will notice that you will receive an error if you try to import a playlist that comprises of songs, not in your library. Therefore, if you need your playlist to be complete, you will need to transfer these songs to your library, before re-importing the playlist.

Importing playlists for Mac is similar to what we`ve done while importing for Windows. You will need to run iTunes for Mac, go to the “iTunes Menu”, which is the alternative of the “File” icon in Windows. If the “iTunes" menu does not appear. Click on the ctrl+B option on your keyboard.
Then go to your library and import the playlist. On the file browser, click on your selected playlist and add them to iTunes.
If you have songs that you wish to include on your iTunes playlist and is not yet on your device, you can first copy it using external devices, then you can later import it with the rest of the playlist.
Importing library into iTunes is easy, you can either drag the desired file or folder from the desktop to the iTunes window. Also, you can go to the iTunes window, then click File > Add to Library or Add Folder to Library, select a file or folder, and click Open.
