Chapter 2. iTunes > The iTunes Library

The iTunes Library

When you import (rip, encode) music files from a CD, iTunes encodes it as an MPEG-4 AAC file (if you have QuickTime 6.2 or later installed) and places it in the iTunes Library. If you have an earlier version of QuickTime, iTunes encodes songs as MP3, or whatever format you last chose in the Importing preferences pane (see page 109). Once a song is in the Library list, you can add it to a customized playlist, as explained on the following page. Simply playing songs from a CD does not add them to the iTunes Library.
