Hey, DSTM looks great, but I don't tend to my from a genre.

How about having it select songs from a playlist. I have a bunch of playlists that I've created (i.e., kids, favourite songs per kid, general (no kids music!)). It'd be great to have DSTM just pull songs from the currently selected playlist.

Wouldn't saving a playlist as a favorite do the trick? It then could be picked as an option for DSTM.

I do see some potential in the idea. Will take a note. Other than that I think it's a great idea for a 3rd party plugin ;-).

Saving it as a favourite will only one playlist to be used, not the currently selected playlist. I hadn't realised this was an option, and will work as a stop gap measure.

I did start looking into writing a 3rd party plugin, and may yet pick it up again. ;)

Cheers, Andrew

What do you mean by "currently selected playlist"? Would you want to play the same list again?

Yes, I would. One my playlists has almost 5k songs in it. I'd prefer to just have DSTM just grab 10 songs from that a go. But then be able to change the playlist and have it grab the next batch of songs from the new playlist.

Ok, next suggestion: instead of creating those massive playlists, why don't you build library views instead? You could then simply use a song mix limited to the currently selected library view.
