Grinch mode
« on: April 18, 2019, 12:45:23 AM »
Can we have a Grinch/Grouch/Scrooge mode in the media lib options please ?
I have a whole bunch of Christmas mashups that I would rather not listen to until December.
Mostly I listen to everything I have on random and so manual skipping is a pain as the entertainment laptop is not the one I sit at.

A separate filter where we can put -christmas -xmas -holiday etc. would be so good it would be like an early Christmas present !

Uhm, just create a smart view that contains everything but filenames with "/Christmas/" or genre of "Christmas" or something.  This assumes all your Christmas music is within the same directory (if you exclude by filename). You do have to enable ml_local.dll instead of ml_ll.dll in order to create/edit smart views.  Then, just enqueue this list into the main playlist window.

And just to add to this - since it sounds like you have everything in your playlist and are playing it on random -
In the playlist, right click the items you don't want to play and choose Exclude Selected Files (Alt-X)
