I understand your problem.
But the only hint I can give you (for the moment) is to select the playlist, try to rename it, and when you have the little edit box where you can change the name of the playlist, just select the name and copy it (using CTRL-C).
Then in the options dialog of RadioDJ just insert the name using CTRL-V.
I know, thats not quite nice, but it works...
And as I wrote in the last posting:
If somebody allready has a tree widget, than I can re-use in my script, I will be happy to include it.
Regarding "Input confined to playlists" What i am looking for here is to be able to select a Library filter or a Genre filter as the source of the tracks rather than just Playlists. For example i already have separate Library filters for Classical, Jazz , Rock and other classifications which i could use as the input to your script. I'm not sure of the programming implications for your script but i believe it would be possible because Triximoto already has these options in his "AutoAlbumDJ script" which also uses the "AutoDJ" function in MM.
I think I understand what you mean.
I will have a look at AutoAlbumDJ to see how it behaves.
Maybe I will put it on my list. We will see...
For the moment, you can just create an Autoplaylist, that has that filter set, and use that autoplaylist from within RadioDJ.
That should give you the funktionality, you are looking for.
As a general observation there's quite a few "Auto DJ" type scripts around at the moment. Each with it's own special features. For example i really like the way you you have done your weightings but i also like the way Triximoto handles album shuffling. It would be good if the development of the AutoDJ function could be coordinated (Scripters & MM Devs) so that the best of the features could be integrated into a single application within MM. I'm interested in your thoughts on this.
Well I can only speak for myself here:
I made this script, because I found nothing that handled randomizing songs as I wanted it.
That's the reason why I wrote this script -- i.e. I mainly created it for myself.
Of corse I am interested in suggestions (as you did) and in bugreports.
And when I have some spare time, I will see how I can make RadioDJ better.
But personally I have little interest to merge or harmonize all those AutoDJ-Scripts that exist.
On the other hand, if somebody starts to create the all-in-one AutoDJ-Script, he can of corse use my script and include it in the all-in-one script. I have no problem with this.
Or maybe even better, you (or somebody else) could create a meta-script, that itself calls other AutoDJ-scripts. That would at least somehow combine the different scripts.
Maybe the MM-devs are interested in doing so, but as said earlier, I can only speek for myself.
