Play album or playlist shuffled

Shuffling an album or playlist can only be done universally, as I understand it - it would be great if there was an additional option when using the menu on an album to play shuffled, with that affecting ONLY the album or playlist you’ve selected.

So you want to be able to add a set of songs to the queue in a random order?

That would be ideal - on the album menu to have ‘Play shuffled’ would be great if it only did it for those songs in the queue rather than across the whole library. Is there a way of doing this that I’ve missed?

Not that I am aware of. I just wanted to clarify for future readers.


Yeah, it’s a feature most music players have.

You add a certain genre with shuffle on, and it’s shuffles the queue, that way you know which song is next, and can skip it.

Volumio is VERY limited as a player, even adding your entire library to a play,ist si you can shuffle it, takes about 3-4 minutes. Something other players do in seconds.

I’ll second those requests.

Volumio is a great app to play music to a RPi, and it has great sound, but is not a great player yet.
