Description:

LoadSimilar provides convenient context menu entries to load all tracks which have various peices of information in common with the selected track.

I created LoadSimilar because I enjoy listening to random mix playlists, but sometimes I hear a song and decide I would like to hear the entire album. Rather than manually dig the album out of my collection, LoadSimilar lets me just 'LoadSimilar By Album' and instantly the album will be loaded. While I was at it, I added the other options for good measure.

LoadSimilar creates a menu in the context menu called LoadSimilar, with entries 'By Artist', 'By Album', 'By Genre', 'By Year',' By Score', and 'By Playcount'. Selecting one of these entries will cause LoadSimilar to find all tracks that have the named peice of data in common with the selected track, and load them to your playlist. Options to clear the playlist, or randomize your additions are togglable in the context menu.

By default, LoadSimilar will load a maximum of 300 tracks at once, and will clear your playlist before adding tracks, and not add randomly. All of these behavoirs can be easily customized by editing the top of the loadsimilar.py script.

0.1 - Initial

0.2 - Random ordering option added. Clear/Random options now adjustable at runtime via the context menu. Script adjusted to work with dynamic collections (Previously, this did not work. Nobody told me!). Due to a more complex database structure, LoadSimilar behaves slower on dynamic collections.
