Improve search and random

Post by Ashran » Fri Sep 12, 2014 4:49 am

I would love to have a way to search for songs in the following fashion.

Let's say I want to hear x songs from artist A, at random. I would type on the search "x Artist: A rand" (for instance). Or I would love to hear a random songs from tag T, in that case I would type "x Tag: T rand" and here they are.

This could be refined even further, with more elements, for instance instead of random, you could wish to hear less played track, you would type : "x Artist: A lessplayed rand" or with the most stars (x Artist: A moststars rand). I think you get the idea...

I dunno if it would be hard to make, either built in or by script I have no knowledge about that :p

It would be possible to do via scripting, yes. I guess the query string would have to be well thought out and clearly defined, but otherwise adding a dockable panel with a search box that adds songs to the now playing list is definitely doable.
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.

okay. Is there a site or wiki to the basics of script making ? (which language to use, some tutorials, etc) so I'll see if it's in my meager abilities to do, or should I pester someone with the know how till he or she does it ? :p

Seems a bit too confusing for my meagers computer skills... I'll have to respectfully if somebody is up to snuff to do something like this or forget all about it :p
