Random button doesn't randomize... - JST1963 - 04-15-2018

I'm not sure if I had this from the beginning of 4.1 but the random button doesn't do anything, except for activating the Auto-Shuffle.
Anyone else with this problem?

BTW: awfully quiet in here :-(

The Random button just activates Autoshuffle, providing you have enabled Autoshuffle in MPD settings on the Audio config page. Consume mode should also turn on when Autoshuffle is selected.
Yes it is rather quiet here.

Well, that was not the case with earlier versions, if I'm not mistaken.
Even when there was a playlist, it used to randomize this list.

@BackinBlack is correct. Its been that way since auto-shuffle was introduced back in the moOde 3 series.

If you want to randomize just the items in the Playlist, then turn off Auto-shuffle in Audio config. The Random button will then activate normal MPD random play.

Hmmm....Auto-shuffle ON or OFF, there is no random play of my playlist.... Sad

CORRECTION: Restart of the RPI solved the problem

Just ran a quick test and no issues on my end. When a track in the Playlist finishes, MPD starts playing a randomly chosen track in the Playlist.

Tim, we crossed each other with our postings. I corrected mine: a restart was needed...

No prob. Shouldn't need a reboot though, but in either case your issue is solved :-)
