(little idea) Command to run random music videos in fullscreen

Hey there,
i would like to gather ideas about how to have one click in open box start running a playlist in random order without compromising standart settings in my common music software.

Right click opens open box and then a column like "mtv+" should start playing music videos in fullscreen and in random fashion.

My idea so far is something like:
vlc /destination/ -fullscreen -random -[whole folder as playlist]

Ideas and discussion appreciated.

Well there is a lot of software that could do this.

mpv --fullscreen=yes --shuffle=yes /path/to/your/folder/

will recursively play all files in that folder in random order.

If you put a link to a m3u playlist, you can also put every URL youtube-dl supports in there like youtube links, BBC player links, etc etc.

^ That's weird. This functionality should be part of MPV since version 0.9.0 (https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/commi … 4221db0890) from 2015. Are you using an older version? In my mpv 0.29.1 it works this way (without extra config; FTR my config is @ https://github.com/2ion/linux-desktop-c … mpv/config.

Re: (little idea) Command to run random music videos in fullscreen

That looks like a very old version - maybe we should also see

apt-cache policy mpv

From your other posts it seems that your system is mash-up of very old and newer sources sad

maybe needless to say by now, but:
in another thread we established that ab90 is running a "FrankenBunsen" (and needs to fix that first).

Try

mpv --shuffle=yes 'link to youtube play list'

(again, mpv 0.29.1).
