 Refresh Smart Playlist

Questions
redline
 
I have created a smart playlist that randomly selects 100 songs from my itunes library. It seems as though the computer selected 100 random songs to begin with but now it is the same 100 songs in that playlist forever...

Is there any way to have iTunes randomly select 100 songs on-the-fly every time I open up that playlist?

Thanks.

 Shuffle Playlist

Questions
redline
 
I am trying to make a playlist that will give me a random shuffle of songs. The problem I have with the iTunes party shuffle is that I get the same albums way too often. Is there any way to make a smart playlist give me one random song from each artist, or album?

Smart Playlists
redline
 
Hi - I am trying to create a artist v artist playlist using only tracks with a rating of 4 or 4 stars. For example The Beatles v The Rolling Stones. When I set up a smartplaylist with the following:

- Match 'any' of the following
- Artist is The Beatles
- Artist is The Rolling Stones
- MyRating is greater than 4

The playlist naturally picks up on the myrating part and puts all tracks from the whole library with that rating in the playlist. But if I use:

- Match 'only' the following

The playlist comes up empty. I assume this is a conflict with the two artists being 'is'. I have tried using 'contains' but come up with the same problem.

Any help with this would be great.

Thanks

 Multiple Genres?

Questions
redline
 
I'm attemting to creat a playlist with more than one genre.
I have it set at:

Match all
Genre contains Country
Genre contains Bluegrass


but no songs appear when I hit OK.

When I have it set to only Country or only Bluegrass, all the songs for that one genre come up, but they won't all appear in one playlist.

I have no clue what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 Reset Play Count/Last Played?

Questions
redline
 
Hello all!

I just joined this site a couple minutes ago, after finding a link to it on apple.com last night. I've spent the last 4 or 5 hours of the past 2 days reading on this site. It is amazing! I have totally redone my entire iTunes library from PLs to SPLs and am enjoying it already! I want to make a "fresh", as you guys call it, list though. So my play counts and last played are all out of sync. Is there a way that I can reset both of those to never, and 0? That way, I can start fresh. Thank you!, and you will be hearing from me more, I promise! :)

 Import 2 CDs at once?

Questions
redline
 
Can you import 2 CDs into the iTunes library at one time? I have a DVD drive (E:) and a CD drive (D:). Can I put a CD into both and import at the same time? Stupid question, I know, but that would be cool. Save me time!

 Ratings & shuffling?

Questions
redline
 
Do the ratings interfere the way the iPod shuffles? For instance, songs with 5 stars play more often than those with 1 star?

Do I have to backup the "iTunes Library.itl" file in order to save my ratings?

Daniel.

 Artist rating?

Questions
redline
 
I have an idea for rating artists, but I'm curious if anyone has any idea how to implement it.

I want to give artists a score by adding up all of the ratings I've given their songs. For example...

I have 112 Green Day tracks.

1 is 5 stars
4 are 4 stars
25 are 3 stars
27 are 2 stars
55 are unrated

This would give Green Day a score of 150.

Anyone have any idea how to write a script that would create this score for every artist in a library?

 Podcast help?

Questions
redline
 
Hi all,

I would like to create a smart playlist that only has my unplayed podcasts in it. I tried setting type to podcast and play count to 0, but it showed a lot of podcasts that I had already listened to.

 Recenty added albums?

Questions
redline
 
I'm an iTunes novice, so I'm not sure if this is possible. I'm looking for a way to see a list of recently added albums. I'm not interested in individual tracks, just artist/album names.
