Title: Album Shuffle
Post by: thehumbee on January 06, 2019, 08:31:23 PM
I have an iPod 5th generation and I’m interested in installing the Rockbox software. Before I do, I need to know if it is possible to shuffle all albums while maintaining track order within the album. Random album plays, but starts with track 1, then 2 and so on until the album ends.


Thanks

I guess you figured as much, since you didn't get an answer, but, no, I don't think that's possible.

I should add that Rockbox does make it easy to quickly queue up a few randomly chosen albums though, as long as you’re using the database feature.

You can use the Auto-change-directory setting as described here.

The caveat here being that random folder advance will only give the desired behavior if each album is in its own folder/directory.
