I’m setting up a small self-hosted music service thingy, where beets is running in the background carrying out tasks for the Mopidy/MPD based playback service.
I wanted to make a little automated “Daily Playlists” service of sorts, where a portion of my collection would be added into automated playlists based on some smart-ish queries I’d come up with. The playlists would be created via the Smart Playlists plugin and queries developed as time passes.
But to start off, I haven’t been able to found a way to limit the number of items in the generated playlists, and opening up a random playlist with thousands of items seems to easily crash the music service.
Is there a clear way to achieve a limit on the playlists items count? Or maybe a good work-around?
Thank you for any input!
