Randomizer is a plugin which gives the user three buttons to;
Play a random album.
Play a number of random tracks.
Play the album of the currently playing track.
The three functions are also available to lirc Remote Control users by adding;
config = node /data/plugins/miscellanea/randomizer/randomAlbum
config = node /data/plugins/miscellanea/randomizer/randomTracks
config = node /data/plugins/miscellanea/randomizer/trackToAlbum
to three spare buttons in their lircrc file.
The current number of random tracks is set to 25. Currently this can be changed by editing;
where more details can be found.
Possible future development may include a user definable number of tracks.
Randomizer is currently running on version 2.882.
If anyone wants to test it with Volumio 3 and report back I would be grateful.
At present it takes three clicks to get to the plugin buttons, life would be easier if the plugin could be reached directly from the main menu (as in the Radio Paradise plugin for example). Maybe if enough people wanted this - it might happen, I don’t know.
