    Shuffle or Random Play for Playlist

    I know shuffle functionality for the playlist is not available, but I would like to put in a vote for that sort of functionality.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    You're right that you can't currently create a shuffle playlist, but it's planned for BP4. In the meantime, you can already create a QuickPlay list in random order. Setting them up isn't terribly user-friendly, but it can be done. See the Creating QuickPlay Shortcuts FAQ for more details.

    I'd love to use this. I typically build a playlist by thumbing through a bunch of my favourite feeds. This groups them all together in the playlist but I'd prefer they be shuffled when playing.

    This adds fuel to one of my pet features: more than two categories per feed. That way, you can group them several ways into playlists (length, topic, mood, etc).

    I have a few smart playlists in 4.2.18 that shuffle the list every time I play them. I guess the limitation is that you can't randomize the feeds that go into the list, just the list within the feed..
