Find more from same Artists?

Post by baker »

I was hoping FindMoreFromSame.vbs would do this but it only returns the top artist. Could someone modify that script or write a new one that would return the tracks of all the artists selected? For example, if you have a number of tracks from different artists selected, this would return all the tracks from each artist in the selection. I am using 2.5. Thanks in advance.

The old MM2 version of this script can do what you want:

But I recommend you to upgrade to MM3 and install the latest version of the script.

Are you sure? When I tried it, it only returned one of the artists. Maybe I did something wrong. I'll try it again. Thx.

I tried using your script 2.6 and I can't get it to work. When it goes to the script menu it gives me a list of the artists I have selected but I can't select all. It will only allow me to select one. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks!

Select all tracks which has different artist you want to find all tracks from.
Right click on the tracks and select "Find more from same - Custom search".
Do your selections and press search.
The result is presented both from individual nodes as well as one summarized node in the tree.

Thx Bex but I don't see how I can select multiple artists from the script menu. It gives me a drop down of all the artists but only lets me select one and there is no "All" option. :(

Just select the checkbox for Artist and press the search button. You will then understand how it works! :wink:

Arg I must be really dumb but it just doesn't work for me. How do I select multiple artists? The script defaults to the top artist in alphabetical order. Bah. :(

Do you really select a few tracks with different artists and the right click and choose "Find More From Same - Custom Search"?

Look in the tree, there you have the seeding songs as nodes. To add all found songs click on the "Find more from same, search result"-Node.
You should also deselect the "Same Content" checkbox.
