Jukebox mode / Party mode (library playlist) - Stace - 2004-03-25 20:17
apologies, if this has already been requested (i couldn't find it)!!!
it would be great if there was a jukebox mode, that would autoplay random songs when playlists or albums had finished.
it could be configured using a specific criteria (genre, directory etc) and would just kick in when your playlist had finished. this would be great for parties, you would never have to worry about the music running out!!
i used to use a software app on the pc called 'audiosoft ejukebox'. fantastic piece of software, where the idea comes from. have a look at http://www.audiosoft.net and see what you think?
anyone else fancy this??

there are quite a few people interested in the song/album info on a visualisation.
it would also be good, if the visualisation showed details on the 'next track' to play. that incorporated with the 'jukebox mode' mentioned above, would make this great app complete (for me at least!!!

i'd love a jukebox menu option
i'd love to be able to give it criteria to use in its random selection, like genre, share folder, playlist(s) etc. to customize the type of music it will play.
this would be awesome!

i was just gonna ask for a 'random' feature!
glad i did a search first. not only would i like this feature to be implemented for music but also for video. i have many music videos, with the list growing rapidly as i rip music videos from my dvds, and would like for these to play randomly too.
as the original poster said to have it working but also, if possible, to have it randomly play files in folders in a heirarchy - if that's at all possible, or even makes sense?
also, have to say, the software is getting better with every release. keep up the good work guys - it's very appreciated!

your right, videos would be good too!!!

if i have a lot of ppl over or whatever, i load the top 100 list and put that on shuffle that way it only plays decent songs b/c the media library could be filled with a bunch of crappy wav files and stuff, that's just my substitute for lack of that feature. random videos would be cool for music videos

i have worked with a few multi room systems, some of which have a party mode, which basically plays random music at the click of a button, i thought it would be cool to have a party mode or random button available on the toolbar on the left of the screen once inside the relevent bookmark, which would randomly play music from all of my albums?

i definitly second that and if possible, make use of a bpm change limiter/slider, just like in winamp.

if you just want to be able to play random music from your whole library you could just add your music share to a playlist and play it with random.
