    Default Playlist with multiple genres but since folder source

    Is there a way I can do this.

    So for example if I have a folder d:\new movies

    and I want to create genre groups

    Action
    Action/Thriller
    Horror
    Horror/Mystery
    Drama/Thriller

    etc

    I can only select either ALL or ANY for smart filter
    so all would require the path,starts with, d:\new movies
    but then how would you specify the genre
    Action thrillers might only be tagged up as Action or Thriller. Ideally im looking to have the grouped playlist match either tag but not ONLY if they have both.

    One way to do this is via a negative Boolean logic approach. So instead of including what genres you want in the grouped playlist, list the ones you don't and use the ALL function:

    Something like for Action/Thriller : includes filepath contains d:\new movies and genre does not contain comedy and genre does not contain crime and genre does not contain drama etc...

    It's a bit clunky but will work, given there aren't that many unique genres. Another approach would be if Mezzmo support nested playlists where one playlist called A would be if genre was action or thriller and then your Action/Thriller playlist would be is in playlist A and filepath contains d:\new movies . That currently isn't supported as far as I know.



    Thanks,

    Yeah that would work I think. (Cant believe I didnt think of it)

    What I'd really like is for mezzmo to support "is in playlist <name>" then you could do a whole bunch of other cool stuff.

    Agreed. The "is in playlist name" is the nested playlist comment I made. Maybe Peter can look into this. Kodi supports it natively on the client with it's smart playlist capability but this defeats the centralized approach of Mezzmo.
