Since the soundbridge can’t sort playlists (like iTunes does) smart playlists in mt-daapd are almost completely useless without possibility to add optional “ORDER BY” definitions to the playlist. In most cases “ORDER BY artist,album,disc_no,track_no” would do the trick.

Sure, I’d like this feature also, some of my smartplaylist returns 50/60 songs and i’d like to have them sorted by artist or title
of course is sqlite knows the clause ORDER BY 🙂

I third that.08/09/2006 at 4:57 AM #5095mattbParticipant
Me too. Especially if it included order by random.
Maybe even just a primitive passthrough for powers users who can write queries would be fantastic.27/02/2007 at 7:12 PM #5096LovinFireFlyParticipant
Absolutely, a random option would be great.
I’ve been using WMP11 and it has a “Random” tag you can add to the playlist’s XML and thus the songs are randomized. I know I can hit the shuffle button on my Soundbridge, but I’m lazy and would like it to auto-magically randomize.27/02/2007 at 9:37 PM #5097
ok, seen that comment somwhere else already.
Now that is something thats not difficult in a real DB.
but I am unsure of GDBs assets when it comes to order by random stuff 😉28/02/2007 at 3:27 PM #5098LovinFireFlyParticipant
Okay, I’ll show my newbieness. What’s GDB?28/02/2007 at 9:45 PM #5099
GDB is a small and verfy lightweight albeit fast database-like framework (hope I didnt hurt anyones feeling, putting it like that ;))
mt-daapds used to rely on gdb, back in the day. sqlite and stuff is nice, but it is in fact slower on embedded devices compared to sqlite.
So on the slug, gdb is a goodie.
On a PC you dont care, so it’s sqlite, prolly.05/01/2008 at 3:35 PM #5100AnonymousInactive
You might be interested to know that I’ve developed a technique to overcome the limitation of not being able to sort playlists, by creating a static playlist directly from the database.

No plans to implement this, I take it?
Shame, I’d like to create playlists like “most played” and “most recent”.
