Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!
Random mode picks tracks randomly, without special measures to prevent track repetitions other than a simple check to prevent the same track from playing twice in a row.
The songs should play in random order, which is possible with the Shuffle option, but invariably one of the kids will ask for a specific song. In a list of potentially thousands of songs, it's very very difficult to find a particular song in a shuffled list. So, instead of a shuffled playlist, the playlist stays sorted (making it easier to find the song that was requested), but the playback mode is random.
Hi! I love Rockbox and am fully satisfied with it, but what would make it perfect for me is if I could find a setting that would let me play back playlists in a true random order, similar to the foobar2000 definition.Quote from: foobar2000Random mode picks tracks randomly, without special measures to prevent track repetitions other than a simple check to prevent the same track from playing twice in a row.So, if I have tracks A, B, C, D & E in my playlist, a possible list of songs I would hear would go like C, A, D, A, E, B, D, C etc. In other words, if I hear a song in a five-song playlist, I would like there to be the possibility to hear the song again before the other four have been played.Is it possible in the current build somewhere or am I asking for too much?Thanks in advance!
Is there a technical reason Rockbox can't do this? The original Fuze firmware did it. I
If you use the shuffle playback mode instead of shuffling the playlist in advance, you can simple turn it off to see the files in your playlist in-order. This is already possible.
