    Default Random file from selected playlists/folders

    Is there a way of having a smart playlist based ?
    I have a number of folders with TV shows in them. EG
    TV A
    ----Series A
    ----Series B
    ----Series C
    TV B
    ----Series D
    ----Series E
    ----Series F

    I want to create a playlist that will show (say) 5 random files from Series A, Series B, Series D and Series F

    Only way ive managed to do this is a smart PL that says
    file path contains TV
    file path does not contain Series C
    file path does not contain Series E

    problem is I have way more that 6 series... so if there are say 50 series and I want to exclude 20 then its quite fiddly to add each exclusion. Also the dialog box begins to go offscreen.

    if the DOES NOT CONTAIN match field could a series of strings EG "Series C", "Series E" that would help..

    Or if there was a PLAYLIST field in the dropdown that contains file path, genre, duration etc etc

    Hi,
    to achieve the playlist you want you could use the Genre field to add a new Genre that is specific to Series A, B, D and F, select all these files and call the Genre 'Playlist 1' (or whatever you prefer) then you can have one rule in the smart playlist Genre is Playlist 1 and you will get the group of files you want.
