[Solved] Random Tracks

I have a hard time creating random playlists for my portable devices. If I set up a dynamic playlist asking for 100 random tracks I get 100 tracks from 4 artists .....instead of 100 artists and 100 tracks ..... I have played around with this for a while and only SMART play builds really good random playlists .... but it' limited to 10 tracks so I have to play a track ... wait for the 10 new tracks to populate from SMART play then jump to the last track and do it again ....

what would be awesome is to have an option to get a specified amount of data - like if I had a 20gb player ... to say - make 20gb playlist and have it fill the playlist using the same algorithm that SMART uses. maybe base that off of whatever tracks are currently in the playlist.

That is already implemented. You can right click over a track and select Create a Smart Playlist from that track. You can select the allow and deny filters and you can limit it by number of tracks, length or size.
Once it is created you can select it from the playlists and transfer to the device you want.
