REQUEST: Autoplaylist- Audio cd and MP3 CD

by Carlito17_2000 » Wed Sep 11, 2019 8:04 am

MM4 has an autoplaylist feature which I love! It creates playlist from my highly rates MP3s for me to listen to. This would be great for a car ride ! Please add this feature to the Android app, as I hate making playlists manually. I am so spoiled by MM4!

[REQ] Smartplaylists

I hope creating autoplaylists/smartplaylists with MMA is possible one day.

We're planning to add support for Auto-playlists to MMA 2.0.

Feature Request: Filter By Multiple Critieria [#12204]

by csilvest » Wed May 17, 2017 9:30 am

I've seen a few suggestions related to this, but nothing that completely covers it, so...

It would be extremely useful if I could choose tracks to play based on multiple criteria, not just one. For example, play all Country music (Genre) from the 1990's (Date). Or play all Rock songs (Genre) with a rating of 4 or higher (rating) from the 1970's (date). Or play all tracks by The Carpenters (artist/album artist) except Christmas tracks (genre). The data is all there so let's put it to good use.

I realize this can be setup ahead of time with auto playlists, but it would great to be able to do it on the fly like this. If I'm away from my MMW when I have a need or desire to do it, I can't - have to wait until I get back to my computer and set that up, and by then I may not need it anymore.

Thoughts?

You can rate songs on android and sync it to MMW with Mediamonkey Android.

Couple of issues that I think exist for your proposed solution. The MMD auto playlist randomly picks songs that I've never listened to and is limited to 4 GB (the amount of space on my phone I have available for music). I have about 50,000 songs I've never listened to. So every time I click on the playlist, different songs are provided. So there's no way it can remove the songs on the phone. In essence here are the steps I perform.
1) Sync Metadata from the phone to the PC to update the playcounts and whatever else it does.
2) Using the phone, I delete the synced music folder.
3) Connect the phone to the computer
4) Open the Never Played playlist in MMD
5) Transfer the files to my phone
6) Using the phone, I move the files from the android/data/com.ventis... folder to the desired music folder.

The other issue is that with there not being an auto-playlist, I can only select tracks then random play, which means that I quite often hear a song I've already heard, which defeats the whole purpose of what I'm doing.

Am I doing something wrong?
Maybe I don't fully understand what problem you're having, but I think you may be over-thinking this.... MMW keeps track of a separate "Sync Profile" for each device it syncs to (kept in MM.DB), including which songs were last sync'd to it - therefore, it knows what to pull off (if so selected by your playlists)

If you create an AutoPlaylist in MMW with these features:
- select files that have never been played before
- limit of 4GB
- Random sort

Then sync it with your phone: it will remember which songs were sync'd. (I think this is kept in a table on the PC, i.e. which songs were "pushed" to that unique phone/device/memory card)
When you sync the next time, it will first remove the songs no longer selected (whether because they were played, or the random sort picked 4,000 new ones), then put new songs on your phone to get back up to 4k.

Try it with a small list, like 20 songs, and verify whether it does what you want. (i.e. sync the 20 to the phone, play a few to completion, then sync again once or twice, and see if those played are removed)

If you don't want it always picking new songs (i.e. replacing all 4,000 songs every time), then:
- set the sort order first to PLAYCOUNT (ascending, i.e. "0's first"): to isolate/group the unplayed songs
- PLUS sort on another field (non-random, ie by title, or artist, etc.): this way they always come up in the same order
- and the limit of 4,000 will take the first 4,000 from that sorted list
It will pick the same first ~4,000 tracks, minus those you've played, plus a few new ones to get to 4k. You can do a "play random" on your phone to mix it up (since it will be in a fixed order)


I use last-play-date rather than play count, so that it's not just a binary "have/have not" listened, but rather "how long since heard", and so they'll come around again someday. I went through similar thoughts working with my library and playlists - for more details, and maybe trigger ideas, see my "Ultimate Playlist" here: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 28#p423300

It is coming, but no deadline.

Any word on when/if this coming? Any word at all?

Re: [REQ] Auto-Playlist in MMA [#10817]

Any updates on the likelihood of smart/auto playlists coming to the device?
Instead of thinking ahead of all the possible auto playlists I could want and transferring 100s of them over to the phone, I much rather have the ability to build auto playlists on the fly on the device. I think this is a killer feature and would pay to upgrade for it to the MMA Pro version.

Long-term, an amazing feature would be voice recognition (either via Google Now, or directly in the MMA app) that would allow me to say something like:
'Play songs from the 90's that are rated higher than 2 stars and are from the genres R&B or Rap'
That would be an amazing experience while driving.

But for now, the bare minimum of being able to create smart playlists on the fly on the device with the same power of filters (or close to it) on MM Windows would be highly desired and I'm hoping I can pay you guys soon for such a feature! :D

Hi,

Do you mean that auto-playlist will be added to 1.1.3 ?

If yes, is it include in the Beta app on Google play ?

Re: [REQ] Auto-Playlist in MMA [#10817]

Great news Rusty. And thanks RovingCowboy for trying to help.

I eagerly await the 1.1.3 release. :)

MMA 1.1.3 should be out the door soon and deals with various under the hood issues that needed to be fixed before moving forward.

Our next release will focus on new features / UI and this is certainly near the top of the list.

If you're playlist on mmw finds songs of zero play count the list will move them from the phone after it syncs the data of play count gor the ones that have it. Since the list finds only zero count songs it wont have them in the list so it will remove the played ones. That is if the played data is sycned to the computer before the play list is loaded with songs to add to the phone. If it syncs the data at the same time it loads on the phone then the played song's data should be on the computer even if it removed the song. Unless it removes the song before it zyncs.
