[SOLVED] MediaMonkey remember where I left on my playlist shuffle?

Post by Master Live 013 » Sat Jul 07, 2018 10:47 am

Hi guys and gals, new to MediaMonkey switching from iTunes and I would like to know if this is possible to do with MediaMonkey:

Lets say I have a playlists of 10 songs.

I choose to shuffle said 10 playlist.

I get to listen to the first 3 songs on my shuffled playlist but some reason have to close my MediaMonkey/shut down my computer.

When I restart my computer and open MediaMonkey I would like for the program to remember the 7 songs that were left on my playlist without playing and the order it had pre-selected that the upcoming songs were going to play.

Is that possible? iTunes does this and it is an important tool for me.

Thank you.

MediaMonkey doesn't do that anyway. Shuffle is always randomly picking from the 10 files regardless if they have been played already.

So you should right click in Now Playing, List > Randomize List if you want control.

Ok, but if I do it through the Now Playing list and I close the program will MediaMonkey then remember which songs it had already played?

Yes, as you'll have the Now Playing play in order (Shuffle disabled as list is Randomized).

Pardon my ignorance, but when I right click I see no "List > Randomize List".

I cannot find those choices either.

Right click on a file in the Now Playing window and it should be in the Context menu.
