Well that would be a solution but then the user has to ramdomize the list manually every time a new playlist is opened.
As I use MM for a multimedia platform in a flat share with different users it would be nice to get those functions automized.

Of course, the ordinary MM random mode would do its job, too, but it has a disadvantage as the button "play selected tracks next" has no effect. I don't know if this can be solved (according to the bug-fix with "play selected tracks immediately" in RC 4) because the player would jump to the next track at random. Therefore I would prefer an automatical randomised list right from the start. Then you can also see which track is played next. Another possibility is an Auto DJ that only selects tracks from the actual playlist.

There are probably several alternatives to get this managed, but each one isn't fully developed (see also discussion Randomise Script

What about
Now Playing -> Edit -> Randomize list ?

Using Auto DJ you have to choose a determined playlist where the next random tracks are selected from, but I would like to get randomised tracks from the list playing currently and I think there is no possibility to make such a setting.

I'm looking for the same behaviour, and it seems that Auto DJ is the answer but I'm getting some unexpected behaviour with it.

Would it be possible to make use of "Play track next" in random mode as well, so that the selected tracks start playing before continuing with randomized play back?

Thanks guys, I've just reproduced it and fixed. You can check over in RC4.

I just tested the version, the problem still exists.

Sorry I Hadn't replied before...I'm on RC3 now and still facing the same issue.

I have the same problem with my MM 2.5.5. As long as random mode is active and I select a specific song from the middle with PLAY NOW or Double Click, this song gets added to the list on the right but is not played now. Even if I click on this track again and again just any other track starts at random. Only if I select a track from the right "Now Playing"-list, this song is played directly.

This problem only occurs with the Play Now setting "Play selected tracks only" and of course not, with any option "Clear tracks..." because then there are at first no other tracks any more that could be played instead of the correct song.

Even though it should also work with "Play selected tracks only". Perhaps this problem gets fixed with the next version?

Or don't you have this problem with the "Play selected tracks only" option either?

Fresh install of b4

Did a fresh install of b4 solve this for you?


by judas » Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:53 pm

Can anyone confirm/reject this behavior?

by nohitter151 » Sat Oct 13, 2007 1:41 pm

by judas » Sat Oct 13, 2007 1:31 pm
