Rating Weighted Random Playlists

I'd like a way to use SMART VIEW to design randomized playlists that are RATINGS WEIGHTED.

It would pick songs of all different ratings, but:

5 STARS = lots of songs
4 STARS = a good frequency
3 STARS = moderate amount
2 STARS = less frequent
1 STARS = occasional

I know this has been discussed before, but considering the other major players are adding this feature I'm baffled Winamp hasn't.

It seems like SMART VIEW could be modified to have this same effect by giving it the ability to pick a # of songs randomly from all tracks that fit a certain criteria.

EXAMPLE:
Grab 50 songs with 5 star ratings, 40 songs with 4 star ratings, 30 songs with 3 star ratings, 20 songs with 2 star ratings, and 10 songs with 1 star ratings... Then you'd have a weighted playlist.

The BASIC functionality could be added to Winamp without any hardcore changes with the method I just described!

PS. Thanks, Winamp authors, for listening to us here! Winamp is the best!

I was looking for the same as you, and I found this no-longer-supported plug-in:

I have just installed it, and it seems to work pretty good!

Hope it's useful!
