Add logic to smart playlists in iTunes 4.5
Authored by: masjones on Apr 30, '04 06:41:39PM

You can make a random playlist.

I use these parameters.
1. Last played is not in the last "X" days
2. Play count is less than "X"
3. Select the Limit list to X songs selected by random.

Set it to match all conditions
To rotate songs on this list set it for live updating. When a song reaches the play count you set it gets removed from the list and a new one is added.

Voila, a random playlist that updates itself!

ive got loads of playlists similar to that, using genre and comments to customise them further.

they arent the same as the party shuffle tho as the option to play favourites more is good and the mix of recent and less recently played songs works well.

just duplicating the party shuffle on the ipod would be a good start without worrying about the add/remove malarky quite yet.
