    Me too :-). The Smartmix plugin was one of the greatest plugin for

    I was also thinking about it when visiting

    https://nelson.glitch.me

    a few days ago to see how playlists are generated with this tool.

    Maybe there is really a possibility to improve the current "Don't Stop
    The Music" or the "Spotty" plugin...

    LastMix works great. As good as DSTM, in my opinion.

    Unfortunately Spotify's API is still far, far behind the echonest's. I
    do have some of above implemented in the Spotty plugin. As you
    suggested, the plugin would try to match currently playing stuff with
    Spotify IDs, then mix from there. But while the.echonest.com allowed to
    basically export all of your music metadata to create a profile, Spotify
    only accepts five tracks to seed a mix...

    I have my DSTM set to "MusicIP mix". If I have one song in the playlist then DSTM does not generate a "MusicIP mix" it only generates a "Song mix" and the server log shows
    Code:
    [18-03-15 19:39:15.5560] Slim::Plugin::DontStopTheMusic::Plugin::onPlaylistChange (188) Received command playlist newsong
    [18-03-15 19:40:22.1605] Slim::Plugin::DontStopTheMusic::Plugin::dontStopTheMusic (227) 0 songs remaining, songIndex = 0
    [18-03-15 19:40:22.1747] Slim::Plugin::DontStopTheMusic::Plugin::getMixableProperties (353) Auto-mixing from random tracks in current playlist
    [18-03-15 19:40:32.2631] Slim::Plugin::DontStopTheMusic::Plugin::__ANON__ (279) I'm sorry, we couldn't create any reasonable result with your current playlist. We'll just play something instead.
    I can generate a MusicIP mix manually from the same track so why can't DSTM do the same?

    I see it says "no mix returned with filter involved" but I can generate a mix from the same track manually.

    Slartibartfast, try it with no filter.
    Go to Settings, Player, MusicIP and set the Mix Filter to (none) and see if it works.

    Also, early in the thread there was some discussion about when a mix build is triggered -

    Just tried with no filter and I still get a "song mix". Maybe it takes too long to generate a MusicIP mix. Does it work for you?

    Yes, I use it in my Sydney house with a filter (called No Spoken to stop Goon shows!).

    I run SpiceFly Sugarcube down here. I'll try Don't Stop the Music in the morning as it's dinner time down under and I have had a couple of glasses of wine and it takes ages to restore settings after I fiddle with them when shiggered.

    OK thanks. I have no problem generating a mix from the context menu. My use of filters is to remove "live" tracks but rather than specify a filter that removes the genre "live" I had to specify one which includes all the other genres. When I had more than 10 genres specified the MusicIP plugin would timeout. Maybe the timeout of the DSTM plugin is too short when the MusicIP mix is generated by a Raspberry Pi.
