Continuous playback of random albums

arlinsandbulte
Can Banshee be configured to randomly play all albums from my music folder?
For instance, play an album from first track to last track.  When complete with the album, randomly choose another album and play it from first to last track.... continuously.

Right now, I have an old Windows PC that uses Winamp 5.666 & the Album List 2.06 plugin to do this.
I have the Windows Scheduler configured to start Winamp at 6:00am every morning and turn off at 12:00pm every night.
This works GREAT, but I would like to update the PC and I am thinking of using Linux instead of Windows.

Thanks!

Hello,
I think that Banshee can fulfill your need. You could achieve a continuous random album play by using the "autofill per album" Play Queue option. I experienced some problems with it when I modify Banshee's selection, like it doesn't want to change the next album, it just adds nothing (is Banshee upset?), but if you let it go, it should work like a charm.

You can also randomly play by album directly in your Music library, but Banshee stops after one album, then you have to manually hit Play again to move to another album.

I personnally have advanced needs for audio player. Banshee is the best player I could find when I switched from Winamp/Windows to Ubuntu/Linux. I always tried to avoid iTunes since I find it too egocentric.

Cheers,
Christian
