We do playlists, but you want to do them a different way and do not want to explore the options that exist in the software.jpp said:Clearly you don't do playlists, or if you do you don't give much attention to it.
For your task, priortity rules for playlist generator look like a good solution, I suggest you to try it. To have more tracks with low playcount in the playlist, you can use the following rules:
- Increase priority for tracks with Playcount = 0
- Increase priority for tracks with Playcount less than AVG
- Decrease priority for tracks with Playcount more than AVG
In the result, it will have much more "less played tracks" than other tracks, the proportion will be around 70% less played tracks, 30% other tracks.
Pay attention to repeat protection rules. Do not make them too strict, as this does not allow enough fredom to create a good playlist (e.g. it tries to insert a track with playcount=0, but recently another track from this artist was played, and it will have to choose something else).
You can use the Track List feature to create simple playlists that follow the structure and utilize basic repeat protection rules. But if you need more options, playlist generator offers them.jpp said:Besides it fails to work and give the best rotation, why do i have to generate playlists
Selecting tracks with exactly 0 playcount looks like a very specific task. Originally you were asking how to select "less played songs" - this is a more generic task, and this is possible.jpp said:It doesn't pick a 0 playcount song, it picks one beetween 0 and 1 or 2 or 3... Is this what you mean it exists???
Not true. You can create a playlist and edit it after that - the resulting playlist is just like any other playlist, you're free to do anything with it. You can also create playlists in advance, save them to a file and then edit/play them when needed. I really suggest to invest some time to get familiar with playlist generator.jpp said:with a generated playlist, if you want to change anything you have to delete and generate another
