#4616 closed Feature Request (fixed)

Better randomization techniques

Reported by: Frank S Owned by: Underground78
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7.9
Component: General Version: 1.7.5
Severity: trivial Keywords:
Cc: Evaluation:



I have a large playlist of over 1000+ videos, mostly of TV shows of
varying series, etc. that runs into a small UHF TV transmitter on
shuffle/random mode.

I've noticed it tends to queue an episode that has previously been
tagged as played quite frequently and results in having to keep
hitting next on the web interface a few times until I find something

I am hoping you could make it so episodes that are not tagged as
previously played in this session have a higher priority.

In 29bf11:

Playlist: Fix and improve shuffle mode:

  • If the playlist was cleared and then the items readded, pressing next would cause a crash (fixes #3028).
  • The first item to play was always the first one in the playlist (fixes #3128).
  • Playback would stop after playing the last item of the playlist even if not all tracks had been played (fixes #80).
  • Going to the previous file used the playlist order instead of the shuffled order (fixes #4442).
  • No tracks will be repeated unless all tracks have been played at least once (fixes #4616).
