    Default Smart playlists -- Match all/any

    At the moment, you can set up your Smart Playlist rules and choose whether media files match all the rules or match any of the rules. My most common use for Smart Playlists is to capture new episodes of series I am watching. So my rule set for a playlist might be:

    Play Count is Zero
    AND
    File Name contains Silent Witness

    But the fact that you can only choose to match all rules or any rules is limiting. What I'd actually like to do is choose different AND/OR combinations within a rule set (I suppose you could call it full boolean search). An example is the easiest way to explain. For example, I want a single smart playlist that allows me to capture unwatched episodes of different series, e.g.:

    Play Count is Zero
    AND
    File Name contains Silent Witness OR File Name contains Sherlock

    I hope that makes sense.

    It makes sense and would allow for more flexibility / power in smart playlist rules. We'll discuss it here for inclusion in a future Mezzmo release.

    I second this idea. I've also tried to make rules with similar combinations I find them most useful when making music playlists. iTunes has the same functionality in their playlists and makes it extremely useful. It would be awesome for Mezzmo to include it as well.
