    Question Winamp True Shuffle ?

    Is there a plugin for winamp that makes it shuffle and not select the same song again. I find when I leave it on shuffle it will often repeat a song a couple of times.

    Cool

    I have noticed that since there release v2.3 or 2.5. You would think that probability of choosing the same song out of 681 songs is very low, but according to winamp it is not

    That's the entire reason I ended up developing my own player. Mine will play through the entire playlist without repeating a single song.

    I just need to finish up a few things and it will be ready!

    That was one of two reasons I wrote my stand alone player:
    1) I wanted true Shuffle, and
    2) I wanted to know the state of Shuffle play in Winamp. You can toggle it, but you can't find out how it's set, or set it definitivly to "on" or "off".

    My player is available at www.mp3it.net and is currently free. And the latest version was posted just this morning.
    (The next version will be "not free" but will support full Customization and IRMan).

    Cool

    chainsaw76 what u need to do is read the ini file and get the current state into a variable. From that point on, u can issue api calls to winamp to control it. Works for me

    yea, I implemented it that way for a while, but your assuming that the status doesn't change from somewhere outside of your control (another plug in for example). I also tried reading the status of the menu but I couldn't get it to work.
    In all writing a player from scratch took less effort than I put into determining an accurate status of the "shuffle" mode.
