    Default Where is the shuffle feature?

    I want to play my music in a random order (shuffle) and per FAQ I should "Click the Shuffle icon on the Play pane"

    But I cannot find the Play Pane

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Sorry for the confusion - we've removed the built-in player from Mezzmo a few months ago. I'll get the FAQs updated.

    Some devices allow you to play files in random order - what device are you streaming to?

    Samsung Blu-ray Players (BD-C5500 & HT-C5500).......... they don't seem to have option to play randomly. Just what ever order is listed

    A future version of Mezzmo will actually allow you to re-order your playlists from within Mezzmo, so maybe then it'll be possible.

    Can I please bring up this feature request again? (not that I need permission - I am anyway )

    I was helping a friend set up a DLNA server the other day and installed Mezzmo & Serviio, mainly to show how much better Mezzmo was.

    One thing that caught my eye with Serviio was that, by default, there was a "random" folder created when I added the music folder.

    When I accessed this via a Sony BDP-S370 it had a playlist of all the songs that were in the music folder (including sub folders). I exited out of the random folder and accessed it again and all the songs were again listed but in a different order. So it is automatically randomising the songs every time the folder is accessed.

    My Sony BDP does not have a random play option on it so Serviio is the one doing the randomising.

    Although there was no "random" folder for pictures I'm sure it could also be done.

    My question is, if Serviio can randomise playlists at the server end is there a way Mezzmo can do it as well?

    Other than that great feature that Serviio has Mezzmo beats it in all other areas by a mile!!!

    Please, please please revisit this request?

    the Samsung 5500 and 6500 do have a shuffle feature. None of the Sony's do. To access the Samsung feature, select a song to play and let it start playing. Select "tools" and a drop down will pop up and you can choose "shuffle".
