'Shuffle' option

Post by ghouck » Wed Jun 25, 2014 11:21 am

The one thing I miss is the ability to shuffle through files in a directory. I've not found anything besides myihome that does this. is there a plugin for this that I have overlooked? Thanks, Greg.

Nope there is no plugin for this. Adding shuffle sort could be done fairly easy I think BUT (big BUT) some renders (like XBMC) doesn't care about the order the server delivers the file list in it (the render) will sort the "items" by whatever rule it uses. So even if we shuffle it you might still end up with a alphabetical sorted list.

Edit: There is a sort order that you can select which is random. Don't know how random it will be but UMS already has this.
We reject: kings, presidents and voting.
We believe in: rough consensus and running code.
