[ANSWERED]: Playlist Support?

I have a few Smart Playlists that are based on how many stars I've assigned to a song. As I get tired of it... I give it less stars on my iPhone or iPad. If I have a new song or favorite... I bump the amount of stars up. Works great - for me anyhow...

How can I tell iTunes to start playing songs from a specific playlist (ex: 4 to 5 Stars)? The shuffle part is clear enough... I'm just trying to avoid it from selecting voice memos, movies, comedy tracks, etc.

It would be nice to have it do this rather than going the airplay route (WiFi signal sometime causes skipping).

Re: Playlist Support?

You can create a server action to run an embedded AppleScript to do this... here is an example from one of my control pages for the Top 100 Most Played smart playlist:

Code: Select all
tell application "iTunes"
   play playlist "Top 100 Most Played"
end tell

Re: Playlist Support?

The plugin doesn't support playlists, but as Adam points out you can do it with AppleScript.

Re: Playlist Support?

Thanks Adam and Jay. Just what I was looking for. Would be easier that way anyhow. Like a radio preset... Just on a control page...
