Is there a way to sort artists evenly throughout a playlist?
E.g. if the playlist contains 5000 songs and 5 of those songs are by ABBA, then each song should be 1000 songs apart (if the first song is track 1 in the playlist).

My aim is to have a playlist with a 'random' sort of artists, but also for the artist's songs to be evenly spread throughout the playlist.

The only way I've found to do this, is to manually sort a playlist M3U file using Notepad++, but it is a long slow process which I haven't completed. This involves having the song total of each artist and then dividing the total playlist song number by that, then manually searching each artist's song and then moving it in the file to the correct line number.

Any help appreciated.
