AutoPlaylist enhancements

Post by shoney » Fri Jan 11, 2008 11:39 am

It would be great to have a criteria for auto playlists that says, "Playlist" "does not equal" "Playlist 1". This way, if you have multiple playlists that have similar criteria, the same songs won't be repeated in multiple playlists.

Another great criteria would be to not allow an artist to be repeated multiple times in a playlist. For example, if you want 20 songs rated 5 stars, you don't get The Beatles appearing 6 times.

This is already available in MM3, just select the advanced tab of Autoplaylists to enter your criteria.

Once again on the Advanced tab of Autoplaylists you can choose the Random option for the sort, you limit the number of tracks in the Show at Most section.

Regarding nr 2:
I don't think you can limit tracks per Artist only per Playlist
Advanced Duplicate Find & Fix Find More From Same - Custom Search. | Transfer PlayStat & Copy-Paste Tags/AlbumArt between any tracks.
Tagging Inconsistencies Do you think you have your tags in order? Think again...
Play History & Stats Node Like having your Last-FM account stored locally, but more advanced.
Case & Leading Zero Fixer Works on filenames too!

I believe Bex is correct. I have not found a way to limit the number of tracks per aritst in a playlist. Like I said in my original post, this would be a great enhancement for auto playlists in a future update.

Limit to Tracks to Complete Albums

Post by spacefish » Sun Jan 20, 2008 12:58 pm

I'll jump on because the topic concerns enhancements. I'd like to see an option for limiting tracks to complete albums.

How would the program know if an album is complete?

No, not complete as in all tracks are present, but complete as in, if it adds one track from an album, it must add the rest of the tracks from the same album. Winamp has the option for AutoFilling a portable and choosing Full Albums Only as an option. I think this would be perfect for MediaMonkey AutoPlaylists.

Yup

I've also been hoping for a way to limit # number of tracks per artists in my autoplaylists. This is something MM3 definitely could use soon. I love my autoplaylists, but every now and then it'll add too many of 1 artist.

Maybe already exist in MM 3:

# Tracks by artist
# Tracks in album
# Albums by artist

but I think this go by entire library, not what in playlist.

2 more suggestions for Enhancements to AutoPlaylists

1. Search Criteria "Original Date"
2. Sort by "Album Artist" (Is it me or is this not available? I can't remember now)
