Can someone please provide me with the layout of the Genre and Year .xml files that go directly to individual songs. I have deleted all Album information from my music files and only want views at the song level. So when I click on "Country" I want (with no intermediate "Singles" step) a listing of all songs tagged with Genre=Country. Similarly for Year.

Thx.

You can do this with smart_playlists (wiki) but you will have to set up multiple playlists with one for each of your genres etc.

This for instance will list all the songs where genre = country.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="songs">
    <name>Country songs</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="genre" operator="is">
        <value>country</value>
    </rule>
</smartplaylist>

If you change genre to year and put a year between the value tags then that will list all the songs from that year.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="songs">
    <name>Songs from 1974</name>
    <match>all</match>
    <rule field="year" operator="is">
        <value>1974</value>
    </rule>
</smartplaylist>

Thanks but impractical. I have over 100 individual years and over 1000 genres (I combined genres and styles). Anybody else have any ideas?
