[RELEASE] Last.FM Playlist Generator Script - Auto Generate Similar Music Playlists - ErlendSB - 2010-10-24 13:11
This is a script that fills your music playlist based on the song you are currently listening to.
Hope someone will find it usefull
You can grab the addon from Mortstar's repository. I strongly suggest that you install the Repositories Installer Addon which allows you to browse and install repositories from the Unofficial Add-on Repositories wiki page.
Or if you prefer you can grab the .zip from github
However, downloading the repo as outlined above is much more desirable as you will keep the addon up-to-date as well as automatically downloading the correct dependencies.
Once you have mortstar's repo installed, you'll find the Last.FM playlist generator (Partymode) addon in the Program addons section. Install the addon from here

Thanks for the script! I hate making playlist
Wondering if there is a way to add a shortcut to the context menu?

Not without modifying the skin I believe.
I've added the script to the favourites window. (Open Context menu when script is selected - add to favourites).
And in the "Alaska Revisited" skin you can create submenu-items at the home screen for easy access.

Sounds promising, will definitely give this a try.
Does it use your local library to generate the playlist or does it "scrape" last.fm for songs?
- ErlendSB - 2010-10-26 10:34
It uses your local library

awesome, i've been waiting for something like this. Thanks!

ahh, this is fantastic. exaile on linux (and probably a few other music players) does this. much better than streaming stuff off last.fm.
adding it to the context menu isnt that hard, but is hackerish, obviously. its easiest if you can find an item in your context menu that you never use and simply replace it with the call to this script. if you add the script to your favourites you can find the code to call it by looking in favourites.xml, and just put it in the context menu xml in place of an unused function

Played some Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp, Tom Petty, Van Morrison amongst others showed up on the playlist..
Again, great work..

Fun script, useful. Thanks!
One other note: "Install from zip" fails in Dharma RC1, but I was able to do it manually just fine.
