From Playing or PC? The former can be done: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... aying_list

From a Playlist or the Playing? On the latter is possible.

With Playlists you do have the option to use a Criteria based AutoPlaylist.

I'd try MediaMonkey 2024 where Shuffle has been completely reworked.

You could have an AutoPlaylist select files that had "last played" before "today's date" and then play from that playlist. As soon as a song was played it would fail that criteria and removed from the playlist, but I'm not aware of a way to automatically update "today's date" within the confines of an AutoPlaylist, because the Last Played criteri only accepts static values. It would be cool if you could use "today" with day offsets, but you can't.

Hi Matt,
There is a way in MM5 to go some way towards achieving what you suggest.
The Last Played criteria operators include the options greater or less than n hours or days ago.
You access these via the dropdown arrow as shown here

so if criteria included something like "Last played was greater than 30 days ago" the playlist would be auto-housekept by removing played tracks.

The issue is that the played tracks would pop back up again in a month, but this may be OK in some situations.
Want a dark skin for MM5? This is the one that works best for me .. elegant, compact & clear.

This should be very easy to create in a script. A script coder should have no issues coding this for you. Try asking in the dev forum.
