well following frankz suggestions, the best I could figure out to do what I wanted was to get it to sort of work.v1
it shows 3 random albums however I could not figure out how to restrict it to only one album per artist. v2
it does this correctly:
1. suggests one album from each artist randomly
Refreshing the smart playlist only rearranges the order of the 3 randomly selected albums however.
I can force it to choose 3 random new albums again by opening the edit dialog of the auto playlist and hitting save
So basically I can achieve what I want, however it is a bit cumbersome.
is there any way to refine it to work via refresh?I guess the solution is
... because it is kind of stupid to have to choose Edit Auto Playlist | Save , each time
is to use v1 but to make it show 21 albums or something large like that to be guaranteed a selection that would contain a mixture of albums from each artist on each refershv1v2
actually I was in general quite happy to have 3 different auto playlists, 1 per artist. However the problem was they weren't easy to access since I would need to get to the playlist explorer each time. I would prefer to use a tab header but I don't want to waste 3 spots as my tab headers are already quite crowded, that is why I wanted to combine it to one playlist. so I would have one Random Album Tab
