Request -  Music Video 'Party Mode'
#1
Hi, 

In the music library there is the option to create a party mode where a random list of songs is generated and then played.  Is there (or can someone create) a similar script / service for music videos??

What I'm after is to set the music videos going, so it's like MTV, but with the music videos I have in my library?

Any one have any thoughts on how I can do this??

Thanks in advance

I have done this, in favourites

Here is the code to put in the favourites.xml

<favourite name="insert fave title" thumb="/path to file/thumbnail.png">PlayerControl(PartyMode(video))</favourite>

This then shuffles all your music videos, and gives you your own music 'channel' - locally!


Hope that helps

Party mode is available for music videos.  You can use the system-defined party mode playlist (includes all music videos in the library), or define you own smart playlist with filtered contents.  Open the context menu of the playlist and select "play in party mode".

 But how do you only filter Music Videos into this without including Movies and TVShows?

It is already done! party mode only does music videos, so TV and movies are already filtered!

 Wow.. Your right, it works just like that! Thanks. Smile

Now to work out how to do this for 90s music, or electronic videos... Hmm

I cannot believe such a simple line of code in an xml file can produce, for what is, your own personal music TV channel via favourites! 

I personally would just go for both LOL, it is your own curated MTV, so whatever plays, u gonna like!  Laugh

When party mode is aborted, it means less than 10 songs (or music videos) passed the filter.  It's dynamic, so for example if you create a smart playlist of all music videos with playcount < 1, it will start playing the unwatched MVs until finally you have less than 10 left.
