    Looks different to "Spotification" in that it seems to add 5 tracks at a time rather than 20 - is that right Michael?

    Looking good so far. Folk based.
    Bold items are local files.
    Others all appear to be from Spotify. I only have a free Deezer account.

    7.9 is stable enough.
    thanks to all for the answer, there was (and probably is) an unsolved "crossfade problem with online sources" with 7.9 for a long time, that's why I'm insisting on 7.8 nightlies. I will give a try to 7.9 again, hopefully it's fixed. At the end I'm curious for the new Lastmix plugin.
    Thanks Michael for trying new alternatives.

    Slighty OT but I'd just like to point out a very slight issue with DSTM which isn't obvious and will catch out some people.
    Synchronised players - each player in the sync group must have the same DSTM settings. It is easy to overlook this as matters stand but if you know, you know. A simple reminder in the Web GUI would probably be a good idea. Just an idea.

    That's correct. All those mixers and handlers for DSTM are responsible
    for how and what they add. Spotify would deliver the full list in one
    single query. For LastMix I often have to run multiple queries (to
    last.fm, mysb.com and/or the music service) for a single track. I saw
    mixes where it took 30s and dozens of requests to come up with those
    five tracks...

    The problem is that Last.fm does not return track IDs or the like.
    Therefore the plugin has to run searches based on artist and track name
    on those music services. And again only Spotify would allow me to use
    both items for the search. In all other cases I would get a list of
    title matches, from which I have to figure out which was by the desired
    artist.

    It's a bit messy. But I've learned a few lessons with SmartMix already :-).

    Oh, this might actually be a bug in the DSTM plugin (and LastMix, too).
    I'll look into this. Thanks for the heads up!

    First real opinion. It's generally OK but has produced some odd results and this piece of irony (picture)

    I've also tried the LastMix plugin and it is cool to have this new
    possebility to discover new music! thanks Michael for all your great
    work!

    But for what reason ever I only get a playlist with 25 songs and then
    music stops.

    I am using logitechmediaserver 7.9.0~1469605610 and I am subscribed to
    Spotify and Deezer.

    Has anyone an idea what causes this behaviour? What info do you need to
    debug this issue?

    Cheers,

    Schoepp

    I think I'll have to add some logging to learn what mix method (similar
    tracks or artists, or tags) was being used. I'm pretty sure this is
    caused by some tag. I've had the plugin mix starting from a Youssou
    N'Dour album. One of the first tracks added was a David Guetta tune.
    Sometimes there are popular tags like "seen live" which could trigger
    such odd mixes. "Don't Stop The Music" features the tags "pop" and
    "female vocalist". Pretty generic.
