I have a smart playlist that has all songs with a play count over 20 that haven't been played in the last 6 months.

On a computer, the playlist is set to limit it to 25 songs, selected by random.

On my iPad, with iTunes Match turned on, the playlist has 800 songs on it. Is there a way to tweak the playlist so that it works better on iOS?

  • Match all of the following rules
  • Plays is greater than 20
  • Last Skipped is not in the last 1 months
  • Last Played is not in the last 6 months
  • Kind does not contain Video
  • Limit to 25 items selected by random
  • Match only checked items
  • Live updating
