    [Plugin Request/Offer] Mute or Skip tracks on a Blacklist

    Hi,
    As I still have no skills to create a new plugin, I'm just suggesting.

    Can we have a simple plugin which has a blacklist in settings for the artist name or/and track name. Than if one of the names on the list matched, LMS can mute or skip the track.
    This can be useful for any plugin playing randomly or any big playlists.
    But one of the benefits to have it in the background is to skip annoying radio announcements on a stream. I see that all streams with track information have also a name for their announcements(I'm not totally against them, but some of them are annoying). The plugin can mute volume while that announcement is playing, or skip a blacklisted track if it is in a playlist ( like Dont stop the music or random playlists, or a friends playlist from Spotify) No need to integrate blacklists in individual plugins.
    Anyone?

    Yes, Thank you for that. I've been on that thread.
    Although I don't know how to use it, I believe I will search the forum and try; I'll be glad if someone show me where to look.

    I still think a general plugin for this purpose would be great and simple.

    Thanks again
