Question about ANYOF

Post by Thijmen » 19 Sep 2019 19:21

Hi all,

I have a question about the ANYOF in the script editor.

Lets say I have 3 libraries. I select them all and I know that 1 library has a track of Artist X.

When I have the filter on the playlist-item (mode = random) and set that the artist has to be Artist X, I have the feeling that the script randomly selects one of the selected libraries and then applies the filter.

Is this true? Is it also possible that the script-editor uses ALL of the libraries in stead of a random one?

Best regards,

Thijmen

This is exactly true.
The ANYOF first picks a lib randomly and then out of this lib a track is picked (and applies the filter respectively).
So it does NOT combine all tracks of all libs first!

But what you might do is create a new media lib, which combines all your others?!
In case you use folder based libs, just use the common root folder for the combined one. If you use playlist based media libs, just create a combined new playlist.
Ie. The same physical track can be contained within multiple media libs.

Hi Bernd,

Thanks for the quick reaction. Is it possible to use ALL of the checked libraries?
