Random play on all playlists

Postby Saxateur » Sun Oct 20, 2019 6:57 pm

I've been testing Subsonic for some days now. The feature in media players I use the most is the random option.
Subsonic has a random play option on the full database. Is it possible to get an random option on every playlist?

Not on the main UI. You need to start playing, then hit shuffle and 'next' (since it preserves the song you're currently playing which would, in this case, always be the first one).

I do have a "shuffle on play" option for playlists in SubFire for mobile and dashboard.

Update - there is a shuffle-to-play option for playlists in the main UI. Instead of clicking the play arrow icon on the playlists page, click the playlist cover to get to the list of files. Then in the options across the top, one of them is "shuffle". That does just that, shuffles the playlist before sticking them in the queue to play.

Granted, that's main UI only, not on the apps unless they specifically add that feature, but it gets you what you asked for, I think.

I have solved it in a different way.
At home I use AIMP, with the smart playlists. (I love those things). i wrote a program that takes randomly 150 songs from the playlist and makes a new one. The new list is automatically loaded in Subsonic. My program runs once a week.
