Thanks for the suggestion. Seems the app is now abandonware and there's no support for it at all. Even the Help links within the program link to dead webpages. Looks like it would do what I'm mainly looking for, but when I try to open a playlist it only loads part of the playlist and tells me "Unable to load all songs from playlist." It would be nice to know why it can't load the other songs, but there's no error log or anything like that, and no support. I'll keep messing around with it though.
I stumbled on another program that does the same thing, only much worse "Mixtape Maker." If you give it a huge directory to search through, it starts adding songs from the beginning and when it fills up the allotted time you gave it (say, 2 hours) it stops. So you basically get songs from the first couple folders and that's it.
Seems like this would be a relatively simple program for anybody that was a half-way decent programmer; scan music collection, read the tags, apply the filters, viola. Guess I'll keep searching! Thanks again.
