I'm a streamium user, and evaluated mediatomb as an
alternative to the PMM-software. It worked OK on my
linux server so I will stay with it for a while. But
I miss one function which I use almost all the time.
That's the shuffle function, in order to play all my
songs in random order. Do you have that on your wish-
list for implementation?

    Hi,
    yes, it is indeed on the wish list - I am a Streamium user
    too ;) Same goes for the SMS browsing. Can't tell you how
    soon it will be in though, but it is definetely on the list :)

    Greetings,
    Jin

    Until this feature might be implemented, you can do something like this in a cronjob:

    -->
    #!/bin/bash

    # Fetch 'randline' from:
    # http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/src/#randline

    PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin

    find /mnt/ibm120/music/ -name *.flac | sort >/mnt/ibm120/playlists/all.m3u
    chown <dlna user> /mnt/ibm120/playlists/all.m3u

    randline -n `wc -l /mnt/ibm120/playlists/all.m3u | cut -d " " -f 1` /mnt/ibm120/playlists/all.m3u >/mnt/ibm120/playlists/all_random.m3u
    chown <dlna user> /mnt/ibm120/playlists/all_random.m3u
    <--

    I have added these playlists to MediaTomb, and run the script in a cronjob each night. This gives me a new "shuffle playlist" each day. Of course, when restarting a "listening session", the playlist will start all over again, so it's not an optimal solution.

    I'd also love to see this feature. My Noxon iRadio plays songs just fine, but lacks any random mode.
