Hey,

Is there any Option to play tracks for example: by Genre: Power Metal released from 2010 to 2014? Or play only tracks from 1990 to 1999 with Genre Eurodance from Germany?

that would be really awesome ^.^

Press "Ctrl-F" for the custom search box. Make sure the match dropdown is set to "all", and then enter the following rules:

- "Genre" "contains" <your genre>
- "Year" "is after" <start year>
- "Year" "is before" <end year>

Hope that helps!

You could also use an Auto-playlist. .

Music track source: Library (music library)
 Display using view: Default
 Match: ALL of the following rules
 Year is less than 2014
 Year is greater than 2010
 Genre contains Metal
 Shuffle: Random
 Select by: Track
 Automatically refresh the matching tracks

Regards: Freddy

It's even less complicated than that:

Code
Year (yyyy) -> in range -> 1990 -> 1999

You can even do

Code
Decade is 1990s

I love auto-playlists!
