Shuffle All Music Tracks

Postby ckob1308 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 12:48 pm

This is a simple question. Can I shuffle play all music tracks? The media tree appears by album and when I choose to shuffle I only can shuffle within one album at a time. I want to shuffle the music entire library. How is that done without having to make playlists?

Enable the media library and that will give you access to the entire library in one folder, which will allow you to use the shuffle in the PS3's player.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

Thank you.

I enabled, then scanned (which took some time), then I saved and now I have the option for viewing all audio files on the PS3. Only problem now is that I am only seeing about 12 of my 6000 or so tracks. When I tried to play I had the DLNA error and nothing played. I then went back to the album view and when I entered an album no tracks were found. I checked my media source and all my media is still in tact. Same is the case for my videos. Is there a size limitation? Is this affected by my network speed and power?

I know you mentioned "without using a playlist but it only takes seconds to do a search on the PC for *.mp3 and add them all to a playlist.

Then just save the playlist to a folder and add this folder to PS3MS interface. You can shuffle in streamed playlists fine.

I created a playlist that worked on WMP but when I try playing that same playlist on PS3 and I get the error "no tracks". What are the 1,2,3's to make a playlist?

They need to be saved as .pls files

This is a good free Windows app for creating .pls playlists.
