After upgrading to iTunes 11, I miss the "Play higher rated songs more often" feature available in iTunes DJ from previous versions. Is there a simple way to restore this feature? I used to use a complex series of smart playlists like The Ultimate Smart iTunes Playlist before this feature came around. I suppose I could do that again, but I'd rather have something simpler.

  • I think the only way to do it is to use smart playlists. – asmeurer Feb 23 '13 at 22:37
  • They took this feature away as punishment because nobody was using Ping. :( – jnovack Apr 9 '13 at 22:12

One not very simple way:

  1. create smart playlists for various ratings.

  2. Create a simple playlist.

  3. Drag and drop the smart playlist into the simple playlist. Drag the 5* list 5 times, the 4 star list 4 times, and the 3 star list three times.

This will NOT automatically update the simple playlist.
