Create a size-limited playlist of random albums in iTunes
Authored by: obley on Jan 15, '10 08:05:34AM

I've written an applescript that does this. I'd love to have someone offer ways to make it better.

you can get it here: Obley's Album Shuffler

to use this, you need to create a (smart)playlist that grabs at least one track of the albums you want in the final list.

for example, I like to hear a whole album at a time, but want to get mostly through my library before that album shuffles back in. If you build a play list based on "not played in x days" the albums get broken up and it's just a mess ;)
My source list gives me all tracks not played in x days and some other criteria.

I wish I could accomplish this entirely with smart lists, but have yet to figure a way to "get whole album where track in playlist"
