    How about an option to switch to a given radio stream (eg. one of the favourites list)?
    Touch, Logitech Radio, Logitech UE Radio, O2 Joggler + SqpOS
    UPnPBridge - 2 paired Sonos Play1 speakers; Rocki - Sony SRS-BTM8 speaker; Pioneer WX-SMA1 speaker; - PURE One Flow internet radio: PURE Jongo S3x ; Jongo T2; Libratone Zipp
    Castbridge - Chromecast 1 + Chromecast Audio
    AirplayBridge - Loewe Airspeaker
    SB Player - Fire TV

It'll be going from Miles Davis to Slipknot to Norah Jones to Run DMC. haha
    I've just tried the Song Mix (limited to current genres). I listened to a jazz album and it added a perfectly pure jazz playlist. Are you sure that your library is tagged pretty well?

    when you use the function "multiple genres" like me - it might get tricky.
    You start with a track that has genre "Jazz;Ambient" its "hard to tell" what genre is picked for the next track.
    bth i dont know whats the difference between "DSTM" and the old random Mix.

    DSTM only triggers whatever other source to add tracks. But it's still
    Random Play which does the mix. So the behaviour should not have changed
    in any way. The only problem could be if DSTM picked the "wrong" genre.
    I have to double check whether I got that right and am dealing with the
    multiple genres case.

    Yes, that's something I've had on my list, too. But I didn't want to
    reveal my ideas to see what you came up with ;-).

    That would be up to the author of the dynamic playlist plugin to implement.

    DSTM is working well for me. Very, very nice.

    I have some "ideas".

    How about exposing the DSTM options so they're a little more convenient?

    E.g. a "Don't Stop the Music" control button on the webUI next to the repeat & shuffle buttons? Something that would cycle through "Disabled" and all the other "Don't Stop" options?

    Also, how about exposing such a control jive-like on a now playing long-press so that iPeng, OrangeSqueeze, etc. can play too?

    And eventual CLI control?

    Finally, (and I understand that this is outside the scope of DSTM) how feasible would it be to further restrict random album play...not just by genre, but also by using some kind of rudimentary SOUNDEX scoring on the album title? E.g. if I'm playing Beethoven string quartets, DSTM would cue up more classical era string quartets, rather than, say, symphonies or string trios.

    Sorry about that, I'm not sure what happened. I thought i had it set to limited to current genres.. Apparently it wasn't so it was just random songs.. haha.. Thanks for the heads up.. It works great now that I selected the right one.

    I'll look into this.

    The problem there is a long standing issue (IMHO): for the music
    services we provide a context menu which is 100% mysb.com fed. And there
    is no way to add anything to it from LMS. I don't know why we decided to
    do this back in the days. But it prevents us to do what you're asking to
    do. Adding it while playing local content only could be too confusing.

    > And eventual CLI control?


    Some already is available (the menu does require a CLI command). What
    would you want to do?

    That's the kind of "intelligence" which is not easy to implement. That
    would be a major challenge. Out of the scope for LMS. It could certainly
    be done in a plugin if someone felt like doing it anyway.
