Shuffle Playlist after adding from Media Library
« on: September 09, 2022, 03:19:02 PM »
First of all: I just discovered WACUP and it's so absolutely amazing!

One question: Is there an option to shuffle tracks after adding them via the Media Library? Currently it adds everything alphabetically and starts with the topmost track. However, I'd like it to start already in shuffled mode, and/or keep the structure of the albums.

Is there any option to enable this?

I found a workaround for the problem!

Simply sort the Track list by "played last" - this will at least prevent the same song from starting in the playlist, and after that the regular shuffeling will take place!

The shuffle aspect always choosing the first item is a known bug with the preview build. The way you're doing it is still hitting that same issue but what you've done would get around it.
