Projects / randomplay


Randomplay allows you to play your music collection in random order with a memory of songs played preserved across sessions, so you don't "lose your place" if you have to shut down. It also has many features to make command-line music playing more convenient, including recursive regexp searching for tracks and the ability to specify a certain number of tracks, bytes, or minutes to play. It can also generate a list of music files to be loaded onto a portable music player device.
