    Adaptive playlist built on data

    Hello everyone Is it possible to make a smart playlist on the LMS? I'm considering creating a playlist using information from the database, such as unplayed track counts, bitrates (such as 320 kbps mp3), or information from the track tags, such as ratings. On my computer, I frequently utilized this kind of playlist, but I was never able to do it on the LMS.

    Have a look at "Advanced Search", enter your search requirements, click the search button, add all songs to an empty playlist and save the queue as a playlist.

    You can also save your search criteria as a "Saved Search" this is dynamic and will add the results from newly added music each time you select it.

    Maybe Dynamic Playlists 3 is worth a look. You can use one of the built-in dynamic playlists or create your own custom dynamic playlist. A dynamic playlist is a smart playlist that will play tracks matching your parameters. It's not about creating track lists.
